Happy Birthday to me! PalmSounds is 11 today

IMG_0007

In years gone by I’ve done more to celebrate PalmSounds birthday, especially last year of course where we celebrated 10 years of mobile music. 11 doesn’t seem like such a big deal perhaps, but in some ways it is even more significant. In the UK 11 is an important age. It’s an age where you move up to big school, where things get serious. Perhaps that’s not the best analogy for PalmSounds, but in a way it’s a good way of looking at mobile music and how things have changed, how they’ve developed and progressed. I think that the world of mobile music has come of age in many ways.

I started thinking about that after MMM2017. That was not only an excellent event, but also pivotal in many ways. It signalled a coming together of so many different aspects and parts of the mobile music world that normally don’t intersect. It was also significant that it was opened with a key note by Peter Kirn from CDM and was closed with me talking about the future, something I plan to revisit in the next week or so.

So I think that PalmSounds turning 11 could be┬ásignificant in many ways. We’ll see if I’m right.

PS. If you hadn’t guessed it, the cakes above spell “Palm Sounds 11”, if perhaps not entirely successfully. However, like many things with PalmSounds, it was a bit of an experiment.

KDJ-One looks real to me

Some pictures from the last update from KDJ-One. It’s looking pretty real to me and I’m starting to tentatively get excited about getting this at long last.

AUMI 1.1.5 is here

AUMI is a sadly overlooked app. The app is designed to be used by people with limited motion and it is ideal for that. In this latest update it gets even better. Here’s what’s new:

  • A new reporting interface lets you control the reports much better.
  • You now can use a larger image from the camera for a less blurry picture.
  • You can also suppress the video image entirely.
  • MIDI instruments now can sustain notes in monophonic mode. They also can use cursor velocity.
  • Improved instructions – glossary items in particular
  • Bug fixes having to do with saving settings, colors of things, and crashes in Zooms.
