Animoog for iPhone 1.3 is a major update

Good to see an update to Animoog for iPhone, and this one seems to bring a lot of long awaited updates and fixes. Here’s everything:

  • Consolidated ‘poly-pressure’ and ‘chan-pressure’ into one ‘pressure’ modulation source.
  • The vertical position of the keys on initial touch is now used as the ‘velocity’ modulation source.
  • Tapping left or right of the scale slider will now transpose octaves up or down.
  • Timbres panel improvements for easier sound design.
  • Single-tapping on a left panel timbre now highlights it, while double-tapping scrolls to its location in the Timbres list.

  • Values of CC mapped controls are now sent out at preset change.
  • Incoming MIDI CC 120 now turns off all active sound.

  • Fixed crackling sound when using hold from a MIDI controller.
  • Fixed sound cutting out when switching between certain audio devices while Animoog is running.

I don’t often tell you about academic events, but this one is quite different

The Designing Interfaces for Creativity Symposium really looks amazing. I wish that I could be there for the whole event, but sadly I can’t as it clashes with something else I’m doing, more about that later.

Designing Interfaces for Creativity combines a day of workshops with a second day of keynotes, panels and demos. Some of the workshops look really amazing, and I’m not sure how I’d choose between them.

  • Mini Oramics
  • Graphical Authoring of Interactive Applications with I-Score
  • Performing Sensory Cartographies
  • Autonomous Objects

It’s worth checking these out as they all look pretty amazing. You can read all about the entire event right here, and I’d suggest that if you want to go along you let them know as soon as possible.
