AudioKit brings sound and synthesis for iOS and Mac devs

CDM posts about a new free tool set for sound and synthesis in iOS and Mac apps. It sounds really good, but you still need to know about coding to use it. It isn’t a solution for the non programmers.

The AudioKit site has loads of tutorials and examples, so if this is something you wanted to delve into then it’s worth a look.

GuitarCapo+ played with a QuNeo (video)

“This video demonstrates how a QuNeo MIDI Pad Controller can be used to controll GuitarCapo+ using the Pad Mode feature. Chords notes from GuitarCapo+ is sent to another app named Alchemy through the MIDI out feature. Audio is sent further with Audiobus through two effect apps named Crystalline and AUFX:Dub.”

Get an MC 202 on iPad? (video)

“Is it possible to get the Roland MC-202 on the iPad? Yep, just about!”

Sorry, a bit silly I know, but fun!

Don’t forget that the TC-Helicon contest is still on …

If you want to enter the TC-Helicon Voice Jam Studio $12,000 contest you’ve still got plenty of time, all the details are right here. The contest is open until the 5th of February.

AlphaSphere announce a new entry level module

I’ve used an AlphaSphere quite a lot in the last few months and I have to say that I’ve been really impressed with it. I knew that they were planning an entry level unit and now it’s here! The AlphaSphere Me!

I’d expected it to be a lot more expensive than the price they’re offering pre-orders at. £150 is pretty good value for a controller like this.

Anyway, if you’re interested you should take a look at their store page for the new model.

Olegtron* 4060 (video)

“The Olegtron* 4060 is a compact oscillator/divider box capable of creating unique signals and sequences through a revolutionary programming method of sticking components to it’s patchboard. The device can be used as a standalone sound generator that connects with a 3.5mm stereo jack output or to control a wide variety of machines, such as toys or synths with control voltage, clock or gate input.

Here the 4060 is controlling the Anyware Tinysizer through clock and gate signals. The 4060’s output is going through the Tinysizer’s multimode filter. Thanks to Olli Suorlahti for donating this fun and very powerful machine!

I’m a big fan of this little box, it really is awesome and it’s great to see it getting some decent coverage.

An open souce MIDI Sync engine for iOS?

I posted this video of Michael Tyson’s (he of AudioBus and Loopy fame) new open source sync engine. The site for the engine is here where you can sign up for details when they become available.

CDM picked up on this story too and ask some good questions too. This could be a very good thing for iOS, but that of course depends on take up.

I’ll be watching this very closely indeed.
