Seline for the iPad has now arrived.
As there were a few comments about price comparisons for the different interfaces I thought I’d post something with the options available.
AmpKit LiNK (made by Peavy Electronics)
As far as I can see by looking at a few US and UK retailers there’s no difference whatsoever for pricing of the AmpKit LiNK
Amazon (.COM) – $29.99
Amazon (.co.uk) – £29.99
Music123 – $29.99
Musician’s Friend – $29.99
Dolphin Music – £29.99
iRig (IK Multimedia)
A little bit of difference with the iRig. No listing for it on Amazon UK sadly, but Dolphin have it for a reasonable price.
Amazon(.COM) – $39.99
Musician’s Friend – $39.99
zZounds – $39.95
Music123 – $39.99
Dolphin Music – £23.84
I don’t plan to do a price comparison for the PRS Guitarbud (although it is available at Amazon) or the Griffin Guitar Connect, but if you want me to I can.
On the app side, both AmpliTube and AmpKit+ cost $19.99 (£11.99). There is a good comparison of the two in terms of what’s included at ars technica, but one thing they don’t mention is that AmpKit+ has SoundCloud export too, which is great to know. Expect more apps with SoundCloud soon.
And lastly, if you haven’t seen it already, check out the comparison video here.
I’ve finally got my old G1 running, but now I need some more help from the Android guru’s out there. My G1 is running Android 1.6 which is ok, but I’m guessing that I need to get it up to 2.0 or more, so any help or links for getting it to upgrade would be great.
Also, if anyone wants to suggest their favourite Android sites / links that would be great too.
I’m planning to post some first impressions of Android soon and maybe a comparison between Android and iOS.
Next a QY20 which I know are quite popular.
Next a Tenori-on which is going really cheap!
And lastly a Monotron.
A new synth app for the iPhone with a different interface.
Rotaphone is a step sequencer based off the first types of synthesizers: rotary synthesizers! In the same style as the old, watch lights roll around the wheel as your selected notes and chords make a 16-beat sequence. Also, control the tempo using the tempo slider at the bottom of the app.
Included in this first release is a triangle wave sample, which will later be one of several sample options.
I liked this shot of a potential new iPod Nano. How small can it get? Personally I’m still hoping for the new Touch and AppleTV stuff. Although the article at MacRumours suggests there might even be an iPod Touch with 3G data access too! That’d be different.
