“Ducking allows music to be turned down automatically when someone is speaking. For fine control, you can use Automation (which the next video will explain), but Ferrite’s automatic ducking can be a useful time-saver. Tell it which tracks are which, so it knows what to duck, and what not to, and it takes care of it.”

“Recorded using Nave only: All sounds were created by me, using homemade samples of mundane household objects as waveforms (as before, I won’t say what ones). Nave’s built-in reverb was the only effect used. The recording was done inside Nave using it’s 4-track recording function.
All video recorded with a Lumix GH2 and GX7, and by me of course.”
And it’s called AmpliTube Acoustic FREE, of course. Just thought I’d mention it in case you didn’t know.
I haven’t noticed this app before, but it sort of reminds me of Tabletop a bit, but as a universal app rather than just for the iPad. I’m quite intrigued and I think I’ll try it out soon.
Anyway, for now here’s the app description …
Gemma turns your iOS devices into a growing collection of music making apps that you can use simultaneously to create music at ease.
The app offers the ultimate collection of musical apps all right in your mobile device. Each of these musical apps are called Gems. New Gems are constantly being developed and added to the Gem Store. You can experiment with powerful touch instruments such as synthesizers, drum pads, ambient sound generators, sequencers, and samplers. There will be all kinds of Gems for all kinds of users. You can combine these freely to produce your own songs in the Ensemble mode – even if you’ve never played music before. Create music with your mobile device wherever you go.
- More instruments added
- Core MIDI support
- Accelerometer support
The app itself is free, but I’m expecting IAPs all over the place.
“If you have a recording of some speech with patches of silence in it (whether that’s from pauses between sentences, or maybe you’ve imported one “side” of an interview with long gaps where the other person is speaking), Strip Silence will cut those from the timeline, leaving behind separate pieces that you can move around.”
