iShred Live getting a multi-layer recorder

More good things coming to iShred Live. Here’s what the iShred Facebook page says:

We’re putting the final touches on the next version of iShred LIVE. Included is a new, multi-layer recorder available as an in-app purchase. Record your guitar work with undo/redo, metronome synchronization, trimming, punch-in/out, and the ability to record multiple passes on the same song.

Looking forward to that!

iShred:

Brady’s top 10 Apps

This is a really hard one, considering that there are so many great apps that have so many different uses.

I have come up with a list of the top 10 iPad/iPhone apps made strictly for music composition, (recording apps not included) based on three key features

  • Best sound quality
  • Most intuative user interface
  • Most features

Here’s the list:

  1. Nanostudio (all you will ever need)
  2. Synthstation (great sample quality. Will be made better with synthstation25…if it ever arrives!)
  3. iSequence for iPad (fantastic UI and features)
  4. Aurora Sound Studio HD (sample quality is not amazing but the app has so many feautures to recreate and design sound)
  5. Xenon for iPad (wow it’s like argon on steroids)
  6. MusicStudio (great app but sample quality is very poor. useful if exported as MIDI though)
  7. Beatmaker (amazing once you have a library of your own samples)
  8. Thumbjam (more useful as an instrument than composition tool as there is no quantize option but you can create your own instruments and the UI is great)
  9. DrumTrack8 (MAKE SIMPLE BEATS  FAST)
  10. Nlog (most full fetured and realisitic synthesizer app so far.)

I would like to add a bonus app too

M3000HD (beautiful)

That was a great list. If you want to get your top 10 list on Palm Sounds just email me at the usual address.

Concretdog: Shify Registers

Always good to hear what the Concretedog is up to. His latest work sounds great, there’s a sample of it at his post.

Music Radar’s Best Android Apps

Music Radar’s post on the best music making Android apps has some good ones in it, notably Jasuto for Android, but all worth taking a look at though. I found one or two in there that I didn’t know, but was also interested to see that they didn’t have uLoops or the new RD3 Groovebox which Concretdog alerted me to a little while ago.

GuitarJack arrives

GuitarJack is now shipping for $199. I know that there have been a lot of reactions to the price of this device, but even so it is a landmark device in my opinion. If you look at the price against devices like the Alesis ProTrack which retails at about the same amount, or the iAudioInterface which costs $249.

GuitarJack Model 1 Features

  • 1/4 inch instrument input with configurable pad, Lo-Z and Hi-Z modes
  • 1/8 inch stereo mic/line input with pad, normal and boost modes
  • Each input has 60dB of continuous level control
  • 1/8 inch stereo output with increased drive for headphones
  • Sleek and rugged metal shell
  • 30 pin connector compatible only with iPod touch (2nd and 3rd generation), iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G

GuitarJack Controls in FourTrack Allow Recording in These Modes:

  • Instrument (1/4 inch) mono
  • Mic/Line (1/8 inch) mono, dual-mono or stereo
  • Both inputs, with the instrument input and the 1/8 inch input (right channel) recording to separate tracks

I’m currently working on a track recorded with the line input in GuitarJack, and when it is done I plan to put up a video showing how it was recorded and brought together.

You can find more information at Sonoma’s GuitarJack pages here.

The Daily eBay

A few things that might come in handy today on ebay. To start with a Casio VL-5 that appears to be in good condition and with all the relevant stuff too.

A very cheap QY10.

And an SU10 which isn’t very cheap.

Lastly some Monotron units that are quite reasonably priced (for the UK anyway)
