Yesterday I posted a video on using studio.hd and Looptastic HD together. I almost didn’t believe that these two apps would work together so seamlessly. So I gave it a go, and really couldn’t believe it at all.
In the video you create a mix in Looptastic HD and then export to studio.hd. In real life it is just that simple.
So why am I so impressed? Good question. I think it represents a continued joined up approach to music making on iOS devices. You can bring your own loops in to Looptastic HD either via iTunes or via audio copy, and create a mix complete with effects and then move it straight into studio.hd to continue to work on it there.
Of course, on it’s own studio.hd is a great iPad app too, and you can audio copy into that too.
These two apps working together are excellent and give you a great workflow that can start with any app that uses audio paste.

PatternMusic is one year old! Happy birthday to a great couple of apps!
A new InstantDrummer app has arrived called Funkmeister.
Another app from Pixelh8 arrives:
Sonus (Six) is a digital referee for 12-note serial composition. Users simply tap on a block releasing the sound contained within it, once released the block extinguishes itself. This continues until as per the rules of 12-note composition, all twelve
boxes have been utilised and they are free to return to play.
The software in part inspired by the work of Arnold Schoenberg, with “Sonus (Six)” adding the dimesion the uknown note contained in the box. Not only allowing for each note to be of equal importance but allowing the performer no preference of known order.
“Sonus (Six)” is part of a collection of digital instruments designed and programmed by Pixelh8. The instruments are a culmination of three years of Masters Degree research in to alternative musical instruments and notation systems.
If you are a mobile sound artist then check out the details of this residency soon.
It think it fair to say that the iMS-20 is a fairly complex app. Well Korg has given us a great resource for getting to grips with it right here.
I found this article from gadgetlab interesting partly because Microsoft is going in the same direction as Apple on this, and incidentally, I think it is the better way to go as opposed to the Android approach which I just find confusing.
A plus for Windows Phone 7 then. I just hope that some music / audio software comes out for it.
Not sure if I’ve posted it before, but it does show how good the GuitarJack is.
According to this page at Apple‘s site the new iOS 4.2 includes over 100 new features and innovations. I wonder what all 100 are then as I only know of a few.
