Why I love Sprak

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you’ll know that I like making noises and things that make noises too. From there it is a short step to an app like Sprak.

Every time I pick up this app up I find a new noise that I can get out of it, a new drone, or a new crackle, and I love that.  At some point I will do some recording with it too, but for now I am more than content to use Sprak to fill a few minutes here and there with glorious noise.

In my book you’d be hard pushed to find a better way to spend $0.99.

Milky Tracker running on the Pandora

Thanks to geckojsc for pointing this out to me. I have to say that it looks really difficult to use the controls on a touch screen that small, but even so it is good to see a Pandora making some mobile music.

Loopseque mini review

I’ve been playing with Loopseque Mini for a few days now and I’m enjoying it a lot. When the original iPad version came out I liked that version too, but so far Loopseque mini is better I think. Why? Good question. I actually think that the interface, although the same, works better on a smaller screen. That does sound strange as for the most part it works the other way around in most cases, but for this app I’ve really enjoyed it more on the iPhone.

If you don’t know Loopseque it is a very simple concept. A step sequencer with 4 channels for drums, bass, percussion and lead. You can swap between patterns very easily and change the sounds by selecting different sample sets. It all works and works very well.

It is an app that you can get going with almost instantly, and I like that a lot, it is a good quality for a music application.

I would like to see a few more features in Loopseque. I’d love to be able to record from the app as one of the most fun things to do with the app is to move the patterns around to make your track, so I think it’d be great to be able to record the session and then export it as a WAV or whatever.

I did think about the sounds in Loopseque and wondered if it would be good to have control over the sounds in Loopseque, but the more I thought about it I realised that having that additional control could just clutter the interface, and I didn’t want that.

What Loopseque does now it does really well, and in my view anything else added should be in keeping with what it is good at.

If you’ve used the iPad version I’d be interested to hear from anyone who’s used both and has an opinion about mini.

For me this is a really nice little music app that I can be making music with in seconds. If it had recording too it would be amazing.

Overall, I would certainly recommend this app.

Loopseque Mini is priced at $1.99.
