I’m still somewhat confused or rather, intrigued as to why Korg would decide to introduce the Ableton export feature in Gadget and iKoassilator. Not that I’m complaining or that I think it’s a bad idea at all. In fact I’ve been playing with it today and I really like it, but it does make me wonder if we’ll see more integration of this kind from Korg, or if they’ll do similar things with Cubase, Reason, Logic? Who knows.
It’s also a good way for Ableton to enter the mobile space without actually entering the mobile space. What next?
It isn’t anything you don’t know already I expect. The rule of thumb is probably just keep waiting for now. The downside is that some apps are going iOS8 only, DM1 for iPad for one. I’m sure there’ll be more apps that go that way too.
A very useful post from Apptronica on getting started with ScaleGen. Worth a read.
I saw this at MTF London earlier this month and it does look like another interesting control mechanism for music as you can see here in this video. Of course here it’s being used to control a laptop, but there’s no reason it couldn’t work with mobile at all.
Here’s What’s new for FL Studio Mobile 2.0 for Android

Which is great news, and also another signal that Android is starting to get serious.
