Concretedog’s Competition Entry

Concretedog’s entry into the Palm Sounds Competition.

And a rather interesting solar charging bag from Maplin! I think I’ll have to keep an eye out for one of those.

IDX-16 for the iPad

I’m not sure about this app as it is from the same developer who made BeatSequencer. Anyway, here’s the description:

IDX-16 is a application that allows users to manipulate sounds into patterns. It includes pre-made beats, samples and editable drum kits. It was developed by: A. Todman, who is mostly known as the artist named Insight. (
Insight is an MC, DJ, and Producer who believes that doing what other artists have done is too easy. He put his knowledge of audio to the test by developing the software used to create his music. The IDX was a fun way for him to combine his production and programming skills into an interactive experience. Beats included, such as ‘Hi Piano’ were released on vinyl years ago.

This application is another way to enjoy or manipulate instrumentals, and not a complete music creation environment. Depending on how creative you are, you can still make great beats with it. Check out the videos online for some examples. When Insight has time, more features will be added. Hope you enjoy.
