A useful review of Sonorasaurus Rex here.
Amazing to see some really good art works made using the iPad. I just wish I could do stuff like this. More at JustiPhoneArt.
1.2.2 is now available for Android users.
iDevices and Android:
- Zoomable/slidable Scale module, basically lets you define scales and play them with a keyboard.
- The sequencer supports odd loop lengths, independent rates (up to 64x the tempo!), and trigger resets now.
- Transposing of sequencers now scale properly.
- Fixed the .wav case sensitivity issue.
- Fourier transform modules (FFT, iFFT, Band, Bands) for some spectral fun! Check out the new Spectral category which contains a Vocoder example!
- Recording/Resampling now only listens to the selected Speaker modules, if nothing is selected then it records everything (just like the current default behavior).
- Fixed a browser tabbing issue that would popup after saving a scene.
- Much better sounding Noise module.
- Sonoma AudioCopy/Paste 1.1.
- Sequences/Motion now start on the initial note on loading.
- Fixed a bunch of number editor bugs, and yes, you can now enter 0!
- You can now disable motion smoothing on nodes when dragging them around in the scene. The option can be found in the Motion menu under Smooth.
- Replaced the screensaver with something a little less arbitrary, a spectrogram!
- Many other minor bugs that I don’t feel like writing about
- Audio recording from the mic.
- Help and About buttons now work.
- Splash screen should display on all device now.
Some great new things coming to iSequence for the iPad, including:
- mono/poly/glide keyboard
- open sampler with ADSR envelope
- x-fade looper (sample import/export)
I’ve just got a copy of this app and hope to play with it later today. It does look amazing on the iPad though.
To enter, all you have to do is email in a picture of yourself making music somewhere strange. It could be high up, under the ground, in a jungle, but please, no pictures on the toilet!
The best picture (as judged by me) will get a copy of Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking which is a great book on circuit bending an electronic music making, and I will happily send it to the winner wherever they live in the world.
Well, after an amazing month of May you might think that June will be a big let down. No way! Lots of good things to look forward to in June. Here’s a few things on the radar.
- Updates to the app directory and some new categories
- More promo code give aways
- The Palm Sounds picture competition
