Loopseque, it’s not over, and that’s great

Loopseque has been a long time favourite of mine. From its earliest incarnation I’ve thought that it was truly a triumph of design and simplicity whilst providing an excellent array of options for making music. So I was really glad to see it get an update, however small. And it is a small update. All that they developer has done is make it 64-bit ready. Well that’s good isn’t it?

Yes, in fact, a resounding yes. Why? Well you may ask. From my perspective it just means that this app is still alive and the developer is still interested in it. That’s good news, because I certainly am still interested in it. I like this app so much that in 2013 I used it in our workshops for SoundLab and we even took it to the Royal Festival Hall in London and used it as part of the SoundLab set up for our club night. It was a massive success, and so it should be.

So this is good news. I’ve no idea what comes next for Loopseque, but I sincerely hope it keeps going as it’s a great app for making music irrespective of your level of ability, and that’s not something that’s easy to achieve in software development.

Here’s to more Loopseque!

TouchOSC updated to version 1.9.4, the first update in over a year

It’s great to see this veteran iOS app get new features after quite a wait. Here’s what’s new:

  • Added support for MIDI System Exclusive messages
  • Added support for sending keystrokes and keystroke-combinations (via TouchOSC Bridge)
  • Added “Invert” option to Push control “Y position velocity” feature
  • Miscellaneous minor bug-fixes and stability improvements

QOTD: Do you run more than one OS?

I know that some people use both iOS and Android, and of course some people (you can guess who) also still run things like Windows Mobile and even Palm OS! So do you run more than one OS, and if you do, why and which?

So Apple buys Camel … What next?

I saw this over at MatrixSynth, and he got it from MacRumors. Interesting development. We all were sad to see Camel go, but what will Apple do with it, and, more to the point, what of Alchemy mobile? I guess we’ll just have to wait to see how this develops.

My hope is that they’ll bring it back and do something amazing with it in iOS, but I’m not going to hold my breath for that.
