Back in 2009: Yonac’s miniSynth 2.0 arrived

miniSynth was one of the very first synth apps to hit the app store back in the early days of the iPhone and iPod Touch. I can remember first trying it out and being amazed by it. so it was great to see it get an update back in 2009. And it was worth the wait. miniSynth 2 brought recording and exporting too.

Well that was a hell of a week wasn’t it? Here are the highlights …

So it was a really busy week last week. Here are the highlights from my view. Day by day as before.




  • Wednesday morning saw an interesting experimental soundtrack made using Sunvox
  • New MIDI sequencer app B-Step showed us a handy ‘how to‘ tutorial
  • Conductr (the Ableton controller app) have started a new blog now
  • GrooveCloud, the Android musical collaboration app, showed their prototype working and it does look pretty impressive
  • As Wednesday saw Casual Underground put their great apps (Loopseque and Loopseque Mini) out for free for the day, we said a big thank you to them




So, there you have it. Another busy week, and of course, throughout the week we had lots of giveaways, price drops and other stuff to celebrate Palm Sounds turning 8 this month.

Next week we’ll see just as much activity in this area too, so look out for what’s coming from tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend …


Back in 2008: Concreted0g’s show …

Back then I didn’t know him so well as now, but his interesting music of musical ability and the constant need to tinker and make interesting things has made us good friends now. It’s nice to think that he’s still doing cool stuff as he did back in 2008 at this gig.

Back in 2007: The first time I saw the Akai Trackman

This has always been like some kind of mythical creature for me. I’ve never seen one in the flesh, and I’ve never managed to get hold of one either. I’d love to have one, but I know I’d have no use for it either!

In 2008: More on the iPhone as a controller

Another step on the way to the iPhone’s place in music making today, from back in 2008. You can read it here.

In 2007 we still wondered about 3rd party apps on the iPhone

We didn’t have anything to worry about, but back then Apple had decided that 3rd party apps were a bad thing and web apps were best for everyone. Read the rest here
