So CES is starting up. I’m pretty sure we’ll see quite a few new tablets arrive in the next few days, but will there be anything amazing for the mobile music scene?
If you have any views or news please then send it in.
An interesting post from Evolver on the trend toward app stores. This isn’t anything really that new though as we’ve had sites like Palmgear and Pocketgear for years supplying Palm OS and Windows Mobile (Pocket PC) apps, but we didn’t call then app stores.
I’m sure that the trend will increase. I took some time to have a look around a couple of the stores that I didn’t know about, especially the Bada store, and there were a few music creation apps there, but not many, and those that were around were really musical toys reminiscent of the iTunes app store about 18 months ago.
It’ll be interesting to see how things change over time, especially with the mac app store arriving tomorrow.
I was playing with a pre-release version of this app yesterday and really liked it a lot. It reminds me of wiresq a little, so if you’re familiar with that app you’ve got a clue as to what it’s like.
Here’s the app’s desciption:
* Construct a miniature music-making machine on your iPad! See a video demo at http://gridmusicapp.com
Swipe between cells to wire them together and tap cells to change what they do: SOURCES send CHARGES out into the grid, NOTES play a tone when a charge hits them, and MODULATORS change the kind of sound Grid Music plays.
* Performance and composition in one tool
Modify your composition as it plays. Switch off part of your composition by sending charges into a dead end. Or, change the tone a note plays while charges are hitting it.
* Create an ever-changing musical composition
Charges follow the paths you create for them, but they turn by chance when faced with a choice, allowing you to guide them into random arrangements.
* Save and recall your compositions
Save your composition as a bookmark and recall it at any time. Everything is saved, including the position of charges on the grid.
Grid Music is priced at $3.99.
Especially interested in any developer views on the SDK and how useful it might be?
