HandSynth arrives

Another new synth arrives, and is (as I write) actually available on the app store! Here are the details:

A performance synthesizer with a simple interface and several complex oscillators and filters.

A multitouch keyboard gives great control on the sound, not achievable with classic synths, while a “Theremin” mode adds realtime modulation possibilities.
Thirty oscillator modes, from classical shapes to frequency modulation and more.
Includes lowpass filters with resonance and drive for classic squelchy synth sounds and two vowel filters for voice-like effects.

Internal effects: multimode drive, mono and stereo chorus, mono and stereo delay.
100 slots for presets, sound libraries can be transferred to/from the computer, for infinite sound possibilities.

HandSynth is priced at $5.99.

MiDi-to for iPad

Another controller app arrives, this time for Serato Scratch Live. Here’s the details:

MiDi-to is a wireless DJ MiDi controller designed for Serato Scratch Live™. It is the first iPad MiDi controller designed for Serato that does not need any additional software to work. MiDi-to takes advantage of the new Core MIDI framework available with iOS 4.2 which minimizes setup and latency.

Our philosophy is to bring back the DJ’s attention to their DJ set instead of their computer.

MiDi-to is designed by DJs for DJs with ease of use and ergonomics as priorities. It is a performance tool that empowers Serato users to control Cue points, FXs, Loops and track selection directly on the iPad. We tried to create a layout that is uncluttered and functional.

MiDi-to’s features are divided into 3 practical views.

MAIN VIEW:

  • Trigger Cue points
  • Trigger Samples
  • Use your “Ultra Knob” FX and all the latest presets
  • Set manual loops
  • Set auto-loops on the fly
  • Reverse or “censor” the playing track
  • Change playback mode between Absolute, Relative and Internal quickly in emergencies (cleaning your needle for example)

FX VIEW:

  • Control your FX in “Super Knob Mode” for each deck.
  • In this view you can have up to 3 simultaneous FXs per deck.
  • All the latest Serato FX presets are included for quick and precise manipulation via ergonomic virtual faders.
  • Change the rhythm of the FX on the fly.

LIBRARY VIEW:

  • Navigate through your Crates and tracks directly from your iPad
  • Assign a song to the desired deck and play it!

The MiDi-to equipped iPad can be seamlessly integrated into a DJ setup providing a more hands-on approach to Serato’s features while enabling the DJ to perform in novel ways.

MiDi-to’s ambition is to become the platform for combining Turntablist and Controllerist performance techniques, for the next step in DJing.

MIDI-TO REQUIRES SERATO SCRATCH LIVE™ SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE CONNECTED TO A WI-FI EQUIPPED MAC. IT HAS BEEN TESTED AND OPTIMIZED FOR THE SL1 INTERFACE.

NO ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE NEEDED.
WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU DOWNLOAD OUR OPTIMIZED SERATO MIDI MAPPING PRESET FROM OUR WEBSITE FOR A QUICK AND EASY SETUP.

You just need to connect the iPad to your computer via Wi-Fi.

iBooks update

You’ve probably already seen this update to iBooks, but I thought that the collections feature was quite good and worth posting about as I thought it was something really lacking from the app so far.

TUAW posts on this very interesting variation on Apple’s CCK. I wonder if works ok for MIDI though? I guess it just should, right?

Whisper is free

Whisper, the free self-generative sound app by Scanner has now been updated to iOS4 and works in the background too now. Also, it is free.

I think I’ll give this a go to see what it’s like.
