Let’s play spot the app!
Apparently the app is in approval with Apple so should be with us very soon.
What’s up next from the maker of the excellent Jasuto is bringing a new app to the iPad. Here are some details from the Jasuto forum:
Meet Yumi, the violin simulator!
It’s a silly name (I like those obviously) meaning ‘bow’ in Japanese…
So this is sorta the first thing that’s been built with the new Jasuto Studio framework, the sound quality is amazing and absolutely no samples are used. It’s using a fairly novel approach to achieve synthesis in realtime without aliasing or any sort of digital stepping, and yes it sounds like a true violin or even a cello.
I’m going to make a Youtube video demonstrating the sound quality next…
Also I’m not sure if that’s the final UI or not, this app is more about functionality and sound quality. So yeah, I don’t wanna give too many details but hopefully in a week or so it’ll be out (iPad initially)!
What’s really interesting is that it has been built with the new ‘Jasuto Studio Framework’. I wonder what the framework is and whether it will be available for others to make apps with?
I have 3 codes for this excellent app to give away if you can answer this question.

Control gets an update with some very cool new features, and it is still free. Here’s what’s new.
- Bi-directional communication… OSC and MIDI messages from your computer can now change the values of widgets in Control.
- A new step-sequencer interface
- Many bugfixes. Most importantly, there should no longer be any problems with the names of interfaces / destinations not appearing in their respective lists.
I’ve been playing with this app today and it is very interesting. More about that soon.
Another iPad controller. Details:
Welcome to MidiPads, the professional and fully configurable drumpad and Midi controller for Network MIDI and USB MIDI.

Ok, seriously early warning I know, but here’s what to expect in terms of key elements that *should* make it into Mixtikl 2.6:
- New: Mixdown option (i.e. to let you record e.g. 44Khz stereo mixes even if your device cannot play them live at that quality).
- New: Mix/Mic recording dialogs (much improved feature based on what was there before)
- New: TBYB Generative Tiklpaks
