So Tabletop moves up to version 2.4 to accommodate Retronyms latest app Stryke.
I probably have to say that Stryke doesn’t look like the kind of app that is going to work for me, but I’m sure it’ll appeal to some, and it is Tabletop ready, so if Tabletop is a big part of your workflow you might want to take a look at it.
Anyway, here’s what Retronyms have to say about it:
Unleash your spirit animal — fame awaits!
Stryke turns your iPad into a real musical instrument. Pluck, strum, shred with expertly crafted tones.
Grab the app and a camera and join the community of #StrykeShred users. Cover the classics or compose your own masterpiece!
Stryke is Tabletop-Ready!
Tabletop is a free musical environment for iPad where you can mix and match different instruments and effects. Think of it like the rest of the band.
Select your spirit animal and let the magic unfold. Your ultimate legacy begins today.
Stryke costs $2.99.
Joey Joel (The Works) had this to say when he shared the video:
“This is by far the best piece of art I’ve been a part of… My band mates and I set up, rehearsed, tweaked and failed many many times trying to make this video in one take…
The mic on the table is going through my ipad using impaktor, Loopy and Turnado. My other band mate Matt Bee Be had Vidibox running through the projector projecting on the animal skulls while two guys played percussion on them…
I think it turned out quite well and I really hope you enjoy it.”

Probably of most interest to developers. Here Jamie shows live coding audio with Swift Playgrounds, which sounds like it should be very useful for developers in the DSP space.
This looks quite interesting …
Midiflow allows you to send MIDI from app to app in a similar way to what you already do with audio. That way, you can sync apps with each other or send MIDI parts from a sequencer app to different synth apps. You can also route the MIDI from your keyboard to apps and assign different key zones to them. Furthermore, all MIDI transfer can be monitored in order to find problems or just to learn what MIDI is doing (normally) behind the scenes.
It costs $4.99.
