Back in 2008: A first round up on iPhone apps

It’s strange to think of a time when you could round up all the apps for a platform (like iOS) in a single post. But back in 2008 this is what I did. You can read the round up of the first batch of iPhone music making apps right here.

Arpeggio has arrived on Kickstarter and it’s even better than I was expecting!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/28776005/arpeggio-the-portable-arpeggiator-sequencer-and-sy/widget/video.html

So Arpeggio is on Kickstarter right on schedule and in its first day is doing really well, with nearly a quarter of its funding goal already hit! And that’s in just a few hours. I feel sure that this one is going to go places.

One thing that I’m really impressed with is what they’re trying to do in terms of integrating the hardware with a companion app. That’s clever, a really smart, and, these days, a really important step. Here’s what they plan that you’ll be able to do with the app:

  • Connect to Arpeggio via bluetooth or usb
  • Create backups of Arpeggio data including sequences/songs/sets, advanced sequencer settings, MIDI and I/O settings, synth patches and parameter values.
  • Edit the sequences stored on Arpeggio
  • Edit synth parameters of the patches stored on Arpeggio, create new synth patches and upload individual synth patches to Arpeggio. 
  • Export sequences, songs, and sets as standard MIDI files or other format useful for DAWs
  • Share sequences, songs, sets, and synth patches over bluetooth from one Arpeggio to another.
  • Adjust the advanced sequencer settings, MIDI and I/O settings on Arpeggio
  • Update firmware, on Arpeggio, restore to factory defaults.
  • Cross platform application iOS / Android / OSX / Windows

That in itself is a pretty impressive list of features.

And if that wasn’t enough, guess who’s in the media list …

So, please do check it out, take a look at all they’ve got to say about the device and how they’ve got to where they are.

“Mitch Gallagher explores the RME Babyface Pro audio interface with his iPad. An updated version of the acclaimed Babyface, the Babyface Pro reduces the need for bulky breakout cables. The sound quality is top-notch as you’d expect from RME, and the rugged aluminum design means it’s ready for reliable portable use – it even comes with a hardshell case.”
