Well I didn’t see that coming! Phoenix Studio returns from the long lost land of Windows Mobile and is now with us once again on Android, and apparently coming to iOS too. What next I wonder? Griff coming back? Bhajis Loops even! No probably not.
Even so, it’s great to see an app that’s been around so long come back again, and a huge thank you to Musical Android for posting this.
If you haven’t heard it already then you should know that Audiobus 2 is on the way, in fact it’ll be with us on the 3rd of April.
Not long to wait now.
S.A.M.M.I. on the app store (free)
Compelling stuff isn’t it?
Wow, this is a really interesting looking app. Here’s the description:
Earhoof is a futuristic virtual instrument which turns your iPad into a rhythmic gradient of sound.
A sophisticated instrument creation tool, it allows you to layer multiple audio files and combine them with high quality digital signal processing. By continuously changing the sound parameters along the length of your device, Earhoof allows you to create highly expressive playable surfaces.
Its innovative internal rhythm engine allows you to easily play this surface, switching seamlessly between complex rhythms while remaining in complete control of the generated sounds. The result is a playing experience unlike any other, blurring the line between sequencer and instrument.
- Includes over 80 carefully crafted presets, each one a unique multi-sample instrument
- Intuitively draw curves to modulate DSP parameters for Gain, Pitch, Pan, Filters, Delay and more
- Easily import your own WAV and AIFF files with iTunes File Sharing
- Record or manually create your own rhythms
- Audiobus and Inter-App Audio support allows Earhoof to interact with other music apps
- Record your performances as audio files without ever leaving the app
- In-app help manual will help you quickly learn the ins and outs of the program
Earhoof is priced at $4.99.
I have to ask myself why that is? What can they be doing? Perhaps they’re just having so much fun with it that they don’t want to let any of us in on it!
Holderness Media, for being so fast out the gate with Audiobus 2 state saving on their great apps:
Echo Pad (just updated with save state (AB2) and MIDI)
And Stereo Designer – Stereo Shaper and Mid/Side Processor
All great apps from a great and very forward thinking developer. If you don’t know these apps then it’s well worth taking a look.
