I still have an iPod Classic. I still think it’s a great device. I still like it, and in fact, Apple discontinuing it just makes me want to use it even more. I don’t know quite why that is, but there you go. I can understand it of course. In fact it is a surprise that they haven’t got rid of it sooner. I can remember many Apple events where people claimed that the classic was going, and it got to the point that no one talked about that any more, and then they did it.
So hold on to your now ‘vintage’ classic iPod. There’ll be no more of them now. I still think it’s a shame though.
Having been at Music Tech Fest last weekend (off and on) and in fact having missed the Sound and Music talk I thought I’d have a look at what their incubator has to offer and what kinds of projects it is looking at supporting. It looks like there are a number of things I could think of that would fit into this programme, so I thought it was something I should definitely post about in case there was anyone interested in applying.
If you do, I’d love to know what your project is, just out of interest.
You can find more information here, and the incubator is open until the 30th for applications.
Whilst I understand that this isn’t going to be of use to many people, those with Moog’s amazing Theremini (and an iPad of course) will be very glad of it indeed, and I’m looking forward to trying it out very soon.
If you’re interested in the developer’s site you can find it here.
Yep, I’ll be speaking (briefly) about the SoundLab project at ROLI’s Modern Music Industry event on the 24th of this month. So come along and have a chat, it would be great to see you.
This is a good round up of day 1 of Music Tech Fest London. I was only really able to be around to watch the presentations on the first day and sadly missed most of the rest except for the hacker presentations, which were all really good.
Of special interest is Dr Kate Stone and her conductive ink products, I think that’s going to be really amazing.
I would enter this myself but I already have an OP-1, although two could be a great combination. Anyway, click here to find details of this competition from DJ Mag.
