So, how is the Retronym’s Wej doing? Shall we have a look

So you might remember that Retronyms announced their new venture into music hardware. They’re looking for pre-orders for Wej to get the whole thing funded by early November. So far they’ve got up to a quarter of the way to their target with 17 days to go.

Take a look at how it’s going at their preorder site.

Apparently the sale continues … BeatMaker 2 remains still on sale at 50% off. The price is down from $19.99 to $9.99, but only for a limited time and there’s no real indication of how much longer it might be although it seems to have gone on for quite a while now.

MiMiX preview, a new mixer app designed for Audiobus (video)

I think that this just can’t come along soon enough.

Video description:

“MiMiX is a mixer app for Audiobus. With MiMiX You can take total control of mixing of Your favourite Audiobus enabled apps’ outputs in the most convenient way. Just insert MiMiX into the Output Slot of Audiobus, even into multiple chains to mix the sound of the connected input or effect apps. You can even insert MiMIX into the input slot to send the mix to an other app, like a DAV to record the mix.”
