Griid arrives

You’ve probably already heard, but Griid, the controller for Ableton has arrived in 3 flavours.


Griid / Griid Lite:

Griid is a modular touch control system for Ableton Live and iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch.

Griid Lite is a test version of Griid / Griid Pro. It is identical to Griid, but with the following two restrictions:

  • Clip grid displays 4 tracks by 4 scenes in landscape mode and 3 tracks by 6 scenes in portrait.
  • Only the first 4 tracks and first 6 scenes in your Ableton Live set are visible to Griid Lite.

The purpose of this App is so that you can test how well Griid / Griid Pro will work with your setup for free before purchase.

Griid Lite runs on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (in compatibility mode).

PC USERS: PC support is on the way. See requirements below.

Any takers for a Top 10 apps?

It has been ages since we had a top 10 apps list from anyone, and I’m not sure we’ve ever had a top 10 iPad apps, so if you want your list published on palm sounds then just email me.

The board features a 32-bit microcontroller and a rich development environment, making it a perfect solution for engineers and hobbyists alike. Here’s everything you need to know to get up and running with this amazing little micro controller.

Why jailbreak?

TUAW has a piece on why you should jailbreak. I often consider this, but this article, or rather the one it links to has some good reasons.

More new device rumours

I just don’t want to think that Apple could bring out a new iPhone in January, that would be awful!

The new iPad sizes sound rather cool, and the small touch screen device has reappeared too.

What the hell, I love the speculation! Via Macrumors.
