The best way to spend $4 = Give it to IceGear for Xenon and Argon

Xenon is still on sale at only $2.99, and Argon (which has just been updated with Audiobus and MIDI) is on sale for only $1. So, if you have $4, give it to IceGear for their two excellent apps.

Xenon on the app store for $2.99

Argon on the app store for $0.99

SoundScriber for iPhone, good idea, let’s see where it goes

Thanks to Eric for pointing out this app to me. It’s interesting, a good idea, but as with all good ideas, we’ll have to see how it develops. I’d like to think it could be big, so I’m giving it a go.

Here’s the app’s description:

Hear what’s happening“ – SoundScriber is the social sound platform where anyone can record and listen to short original sounds and share them everywhere. Discover the unique and amazing content from celebrities, bands, sports, news and a lot more!

Sounds are limited to 140 seconds to keep it simple and straight to the point.

Symphony 2 – Jamie Crofts (via SoundCloud)

I didn’t pick this up over the weekend, but it’s got quite a different feel to it so I thought I’d post it.

Here’s the track description:

“This is my second complete Micro-Mµ-tech project. This is a symphony for Korg M01 for Nintendo DS and Korg Volca Beats. Check out the Micro-mµ-tech blog for more details. The complete score will soon be available for download.

Music Box Composer is now on the Mac App Store too

Remember Music Box composer? Well it’s available for your Mac now too.

Create your own Music Box music, and easily share your compositions with others.

Designed to aid composing your own music prior to punching the paper strips for Music Boxes, MBC allows you to compose, preview and play your creations before printing out the physical strips.

A small but growing library of Music Box Strips can be viewed here, via webplayer or loading into MBC on device:

Demo of composing, printing, punching an playing:

  • Supports 15, 20 and 30 note music boxes.
  • Share your compositions with others via sharable link.
  • Multiple undo
  • Disable Notes for temporary changes
  • Ripple edits
  • Sounds sampled from physical Music Boxes
  • Save strip to JPG file, auto creates PDF resized for printing.

The physical Music Boxes with the paper punch strips and are great fun – what I found was missing was an easy way to preview either transpositions or original creations. This aims to fill that gap but it’s also a fun music creation tool in it’s own right.

The Mac App is priced at $14.99.
