Recollections of PalmSounds: The Gestrument team (and a something more …)

It is somewhat overwhelming to get all of these comments from such a wide range of people the the mobile music world. They’re all very lovely, but here is not just a very kind thought from the Gestrument and ScaleGen team, but also a very early look at what’s coming!
“PalmSounds turns 10 years – and the Gestrument and ScaleGen team want to participate in the celebration of one of the most important sites around for mobile music. For me coming from the contemporary classical scene it was through sites like PalmSounds and Discchord that I discovered the world of mobile music apps.
After making Gestrument in 2012 and ScaleGen in 2014 we are in the middle of re-making our entire vision of how to play music on iOS and together with the amazing Jonatan Liljedahl (Kymatica) we are now developing Gestrument2 which is a completely new app that will be released later this year. As our present to PalmSounds we here give you the first public preview of our work so far. As you see there are now customisable sliders and x/y grids as well as multiple touch points (up to eight touch points, controlling up to sixteen instruments), but that is the least of the new features and possibilities! Stay tuned for more.

Now that looks like it’s going to be amazing …

    1. I haven’t heard anything in a while now. I did get an email some months ago saying it was taking longer than they’d expected, but nothing since. I may follow up and see if there’s an update. Thanks for the reminder.
