Propellerheads bring Figure to Windows 10

Video description:

“Create beats in seconds and collaborate with others using Figure, the universally acclaimed music-making app for instant inspiration—now for Windows 10. Download from the Windows Store:

Some thoughts about Figure moving to Windows 10 …

Well this did come as a surprise. Not a huge one and it is a great thing for the somewhat beleaguered Windows Phone users who haven’t had the most prolific of app stores when it comes to music making apps. So this will be a welcome addition. I did get a friend to look on the UK Windows Phone store but couldn’t find anything sadly. I’ll get him to look again in the next day or so. Let’s face it, there aren’t that many people who actually have Windows Phones anyway.

What I do find interesting is that Propellerheads decided to go to Windows first and not Android. Perhaps Android is coming too. However, Android always seems to be the natural next choice for mobile music, and not Windows Phone.

However, irrespective of the next platform, this shows that there’s life in Figure yet, there’ll be lots of people very pleased with that anyway.

One final thought, who is that at around 22 seconds in? Anyone you recognise?

Auria Pro, How To Score A Film Or Video, Tutorial For iPad (video)

I have to post this, you should see it

Video description:

“This week’s Archivist Presents slot features a genius of electronic music, Daphne Oram.

This converted oast-house in Kent is really a kind of studio where Miss Daphne Oram is engaged in scientific research into electronic music. Thanks to a Gulbenkian Foundation grant, she’s surrounded by very expensive equipment. With it, she can compose the sound and music of the future.”

I have to post these, I’m a big Oram fan and was actually a little sad when the exhibit at the Science Museum went. It’s nice to see a little more of what she did though.

If you’re interested there is an iOS version of her Oramics machine. Not sure that this app has been updated in a long time though. So be warned.

Kickstarter Creator Basics for Technology

I know that there are a number of people who read this and are involved in start ups or building new products so I thought it might be useful to post these videos from Kickstarter.

Particle Player looks kind of interesting

Another app that appears to have slipped through my net. It sounds quite interesting and really worth a try out. Here’s what the app’s description says …

Particle Play is an interactive music creation app that uses “particles” to produce rhythmic cadences and harmonies. You can add effects to each drum sound individually and create a wide variety of sequences.

Oh yes, it’s free too.

Audio Damage Odio and IOS Apps: Ep6 – Sugar Bytes Effectrix (Wired Stuff !)

Video description:

“Video number 6 about Audio Damage Eurorack Module Odio and IOS Stuff. In this video, I connected my iPad with Sugar Bytes Effectrix App to the Audio Damage Odio Module. I want to show you how easy IOS Effects integrates into EuroRack Modular Synthesizers.

Odio is a 2-in 2-out USB audio interface that runs at modular audio levels, designed primarily for use with iOS devices such as the iPad and iPhone. Easily integrate iPad effects and instruments in to your modular rig for live performance or sketchpad recording, or use a Microsoft Surface Pro or netbook and a simple host to use VST plug-in effects as inserts in your modular.”
