You might be wondering why I’m posting on this game app. Good question. Well I took a look at this as it reminded me so much of Electroplankton. Having checked out this game it isn’t as good as the real thing, but might be the closest you’ll get on your iPhone.
What is equally as interesting is that it is made with GameSalad, a drag and drop style environment for app development, and one of the tools that could have been hit by Apple’s ban on 3rd party development tools.
So it seems you can do some audio work in Gamesalad.
Thanks to Eric for pointing this out. The site gives some information, but doesn’t say when the app might be released.
If I find out I’ll let you know.
Quite a few interesting finds today. Starting with a Bliptronic.
Then a Gakken SX-150 kit. A good price too.
A couple of SU10’s if you were after 2.
A rare VL-5.
Another rare item, a Yamaha MU5.
I like the look of this stand from Lifehacker, but in some ways it defeats the object of being able to use the device for multitouch apps.
Still, it does look nice.
When I read this comment on a post about MultiTrack DAW I have to admit that I just hadn’t thought about multitrack apps supporting Line6’s MIDI mobilizer. However, the more I think about it, the more I think it could be a great idea.
What do you think?
I’m thinking about getting a 3G enabled netbook, or rather I’m just testing the water really. Any suggestions for this? The cheaper the better really.
