Here’s a good list of IAA apps

I’ve posted this list before, but perhaps not for a little while and I got reminded of it yesterday so I thought it was probably a good time to make you aware again, especially as it is a great resource for Inter-App-Audio apps and it’s nicely categorised into hosts FX and instruments.

Big thanks to for this.

Buddha Machine 5 can be pre-ordered now

Now Buddha Machine 5 is available for pre-order. It’s going to be released on the 24th of November, so not too long to wait for it.

I’m still vaguely hopeful of an update to the apps for iPhone and iPad as well, but that seems a lot less likely.
