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.
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 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 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 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!
Well now there’s a full documentary about their work. I haven’t had time to watch all of it as yet, but I certainly will as I think that their products are excellent, fun, and a great place to start if you’re interested in hardware and micro-modular synths.
