From the people who brought us Looptastic and the excellent Looptastic HD comes a new app studio.HD.
I can’t say much at this stage, but you can expect a multitrack music app with 8 tracks and layering (taking it to 24 tracks). Record audio, use loops, and effects and mix down to stereo.
More details coming soon.
I found this an interesting article comparing the user experience between the iPhone and Android phones. Worth a read if you’re considering Android.
I know very little about this app and I can’t tell much from this very short description.
Okeanos is an audio-visual application that you can play easily by touching on the screen. A sound and a visual effect will be changed according to the position you touch. A sound theme will be changed occasionally. When the device is connected to the Internet, your play will be sent to the other and you will receive someone’s play. You can play alone without the Internet connection. An alert will appear when the battery is running out.
But it looks lovely and makes me think of things like Thicket and Bloom.
Continuing to show the versatility of the Beagleboard here’s a post from Make on an eReader made using Beagleboard. Tempting.

Gadgetlab posts on the new 3DS which has just had it’s specs leaked. 2 ARM processors sounds interesting, and as we’re starting to see more music software come to the DS platform again I do wonder what developers will do with a 3D screen for music making?
This is a really good video showing what you can do with this app, worth watching the whole thing in my opinion.
Gadgeteer has this post on another mic for your flip port enabled video camera.
I love to hear about people starting their own blogs about mobile music so it was great to get an email from Dan about his new blog iDJ which is worth checking out as it has some really good articles.
Another Android music app today. Guitar Tabs, which may be handy for you and is free!
