Looperverse makes recording, editing, and customizing loops simple. The 16 track loop recorder includes sound-on-sound, overwrite, and next track modes. You can adjust track sends to the built-in delay and reverb effects, as well as adjusting pan, gain, mute, and solo in the mixer. Looperverse features advanced waveform editing, pitch shifting, time stretching, live reverse, extensive undo/redo, and time signature support.

Limitlessly modify your scenes and explore your phrases and riffs with Looperverse. Inter App Audio and AudioBus support ensures that you can record any virtual instrument. Looperverse also supports Ableton Link, allowing you to lock tempo with Ableton Live or apps on other devices.

Medly – Music Maker 3.4 arrives and is the last 32bit version of this app

Medly – Music Maker has gone from strength to strength and in version 3.4 brings a bunch of new stuff. But, as I said in the title it’s the last version that will be available for 32bit machines. Here’s what’s new:

New Instruments

Added 4 new (free) instruments:

  • Bright Synth, Womp Synth, Chicago Bass, Clanked Bass

Also added some instruments to existing packs!

  • Classical: Brass Stab, Kalimba, Music Box, Choir
  • Jazz: Muted Trumpet, Double Bass, Old School Keyboard, Rodes Keyboard
  • Rock: Modern Bass, Guitar Synth, Pluck Synth, Metal Kit

Lastly, redid a few instruments

  • Rock: all 6 electric guitars
  • Trance: Square, Saw, Harmony, Overdrive

Important Note

“This will be the last major update for 32-bit devices. The next major update, Medly 4.0, will no longer support: iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPad Mini 1, iPad 2, iPad 3, and iPad 4.

Computing demands for audio processing have outpaced 32-bit devices. And as we continued to add new features, such as audio automation, pitch bending, and video export, we found that these devices couldn’t support them.”

AC Sabre 1.1 arrives

AC Sabre has a unique place in the mobile world. It’s an instrument, a really expressive instrument, so it was great to hear from Hari just yesterday that version 1.1 was on the way, and here it is!

  • Support for Audiobus 3 (coming soon)!
  • Automatic Bluetooth advertising (no more tedious steps enable it!)
  • Zero-tap, auto-connection to iPad via new upcoming “AC Central” app!
  • Audiobus state saving both locally and to iPad via AC Central
  • Hands free mode now works when AC Sabre is in background
  • A few bits of housecleaning…


You might remember that I mentioned Hari and the Sabre in my post about MMM2017. Just for good measure I thought I’d add a few pictures from the event, and of course you can check out the post too.

dadamachines arrives on Kickstarter and is already funded!

I saw these amazing machines at MMM2017 just a few weeks ago and was pretty taken with them. Then I had no idea that they were going to be available on Kickstarter. That is, not until I got an email from Johannes Lohbihler a few days ago, and today they’ve launched on and they’re funded already!

So go take a look at the campaign page here. You’ll be hearing more about dadamachines, believe me.

If you’re in London on the 5th of April you might want to come along to KRFT Jam!

I’ve said it before, and almost certainly (well certainly) I’ll say it again. I really like KRFT. It’s a pretty awesome way to make music. If you feel the same, and if you’re in London next week on the 5th then you should come along to the KRFT Jam.

When: April 5th 6:00-9:30pm
Where: Forest Rd Tap Room, London, E8 3RL

If you don’t know KRFT, then you need to check it out. If you can’t make it, I promise to take some pictures, maybe some video too.

Gestrument’s creator isn’t just making apps, but is reinventing music composition!

That might seem like a very bold claim, but it isn’t my claim. In fact it came from WIRED. You can check out what they say about Jesper Nordin in this piece. Of course we’re all waiting for Gestrument 2 but I think that we may have to wait a while longer. It’ll be worth the wait I know.

BandShift 1.1 comes along just 4 days after launch

And whilst it is predominantly a bug fix release it does also benefit from one rather nice new AU feature. Here’s what’s new in BandShift:

  • AUv3 automation for main parameter.
  • Crash problems with iOS8 solved
  • Bugfix: Saving of presets on iPhone works now.
  • Bugfix: presets shared between AUv3/IAA/Audiobus and stand alone.

AltiSpace 2.1 brings nice new features

AltiSpace 2.1 brings some cool new stuff. Here’s what’s in it:

  • Four new devices and more 70 new presets. Total app contains 24 devices and more than 400 presets.
  • iOS 10 compatibility update.
  • Sound engine optimization.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Drum Session comes to your iPhone

Drum Session now comes to your iPhone, which, in my opinion is a very good thing indeed. I’d like to see a lot more of this especially with some of my favourite iOS iPad apps. I’m sure you know the ones I mean.

Anyway, rant over. Here’s what’s new:

  • iPhone Support
  • new user interface design
  • smoother piano roll editing
  • bug fixes

PdParty 1.0.3 arrived

PdParty brings a full MIDI update in the latest update. Here’s what’s new:

  • fixed bug where incoming MIDI bytes were not being forward to [midiin]
  • updated MIDI handling to pass system common & realtime messages in/out of PdParty
  • updated Midi test scene to portrait layout

It reminds me that when I was in MMM2017 Peter Kirn was talking about PdParty and I was rather inspired by that. So much so that so far I haven’t got around to doing anything about it. I should rectify that, and if you’ve been meaning to do the same then so should you!
