Lots of nice toys in the post from CDM, but most interesting to me is the info on the Akai SynthStation25. According to CDM the hardware is now due to ship next month, for around $100 – $150, and Akai are going to make their API available to developers too!
I’m assuming that the hardware won’t interact with the iPhone 4 though for the same reason as other devices have had issues with the pinouts.
I know that there are some iPhone 3G users who have upgraded to iOS4 and regretted it. If you want to go back to 3.1.3 then here are some instructions on how to do it.
I haven’t tried this out, so I can’t comment on whether or not it works. If you try it out then do so at your own peril!
Aurora Sound Studio HD gets an update:
- MIDI Export Facility
- HQ Mode added to Program Settings.
- Added an easy way to turn off / reduce visual effects.
- Added an expression bar in Play Mode. This allows you to apply pitch bend, vibrato, volume and filter glides and modulation in real time whilst soloing over a sequence. You can even pitch shift drum notes, or even a whole drum layer!
I know that there was a lot of controversy over the pricing of the HD version of this app. I’m still working on a post that compares all of the versions that I have, including iPhone, iPad and Windows Mobile versions, and I hope to have this out in a few days.
