Little GP Tracker coming to PSP?

Thanks to Laurence for this news. The developer of littlegptracker for the gamepark handhelds is going to attempt a port to the sony psp. There is a hardware fund set up on fundable.

It would be great to see more apps porting from one platform to another, like this one and also Mixtikl too.

PSPSeq 3.01 Released

A new version (3.01) of PSPSeq is out. Here are the details:

Key features of PSPSeq:
– up to 16 independent audio tracks per song
– a wide variety of synthesizers from traditional virtual analog and FM to Karplus-Strong
and unique digital oscillators with parameter controls rarely seen in commercial synths

– many FX algorithms from digital filters and waveshapers to bitmasks and decimation
– all synthesizer parameters can be set to unique values on a per-step basis
– step sequencer with configurable step length, swing, highly accurate BPM, and tap tempo

rather than a boolean yes/no operation

PSPseq 3.0 is coming

A new thread, on the group about the next version of PSP Seq, moving up to v3 soon.

I think I’ll need to keep a bit more of an eye on the PSP stuff.

Traxxpad review

If you were considering TraxxPad for the PSP, read this review before you do. It certainly goes into plenty of depth. Well worth a read.

New PSP coming soon?

This story says that Sony have a new PSP coming out. This could be good for products like Traxxpad.

Traxxpad for PSP!

Well this looks like an interesting application for the PSP. So far the PSP has mainly supported homebrew music applications (to the best of my knowledge), but now comes Traxxpad a studio type application for PSP, and it looks really interesting.

Traxxpad, is an application which transforms the PSP into a music studio. You can create, mix and sample tracks on the go with your PSP.

Traxxpad blends the power of sequencers, drum machines, and keyboards while simultaneously making the equipment easy to use and accessible, allowing anyone to create, mix and sample their own tracks at home or on-the-go. Music making can be as fun and easy as simply pressing buttons, or as in-depth and detailed as the user wants make it.

Equipped with over 1000 stock sounds, the extensive sound library ensures that there is always variety to choose from. Traxxpad can also be utilized as a Sampler, utilizing the PSP system microphone. Sample anything, anywhere, and then use the wave editor to trim, adjust gain, normalize or reverse the recording. Most importantly, Traxxpad allows users to export their songs to mp3 files, enabling production to be as easy as burning to a disc or transferring to your MP3 player.

Of course, now I’m wondering if I can justify getting myself a PSP!

If you’ve had a chance to play with this or know someone who has, please do get in touch with reviews.
