A nice little update for Figure, here’s what the folks at Allihoopa have to say …
We’ve been getting hyped on the retro trend of this winter’s reissues of old video game consoles, that plumber guy now being on iOS, and whatnot. So we made some sounds so you can sound like those classic games too. Try combining the new Syntax Error kit with the Bassboy bass and Eight Bit Vibra lead and you’ll see what we mean. Soon you’ll be jumping head first into question marks and eating mushrooms.
Looking forward to hearing what you’ll make with the new sounds on Allihoopa!
New in this release:
New drum kit: Syntax Error
New bass sounds: Bassboy, Future House and Thicke
New lead sounds: Eight Bit Vibra, Hedgehog, Saw III and Triple Waves
Fixes an annoying issue where you couldn’t 2D touch the left side of the screen if 3D touch was turned on, no matter how hard you tried.
Rich notifications. Did someone build on your song? Listen to it directly from your home screen. Building on theirs is just another tap.
Secret Base Design’s Apollo MIDI goes up to version 2.0 with a great update. Here’s what’s new …
Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth 2.0 adds an improved in-app keyboard; you can now configure the keyboard for different scales. On the iPad, there are two separate keyboards, which can be mapped to different MIDI channels.
The app now features sophisticated MIDI routing capabilities, that are useful both with and without a Bluetooth LE MIDI connection. Send MIDI to different destinations filtered by incoming MIDI channel, and remap MIDI channels if needed. MIDI transmission can be controlled controlled in a number of different ways, and the app can handle MIDI routing between apps running on the same device.
Apollo MIDI on the app store, on sale and down from $9.99 to $2.99:
