Google+ announces ‘Studio Mode’ for Live Online Music, so what does it mean for mobile?

I’ve been wondering for a while if G+ would provide something useful for the mobile music community. With this latest announcement I’ve got an idea of what might be possible.

Here’s the full announcement from Google product manager Matt Leske:

Since we launched Google+ a little over a year ago, we’ve seen a thriving community of musicians connect with fans in really cool ways. In particular: singer/songwriters like +Daria Musk bands like +Suite 709 and many others are using Hangouts On Air to perform live for global audiences, and jam with fans face-to-face.

We wanted to make these live hangout concerts sound more like the stage, so today we’re rolling out Studio Mode. As a musician, all you need to do is start your Hangout On Air, click settings, and switch from Voice to Studio Mode.

Studio Mode optimizes your individual audio for music instead of conversation, and no else needs to change a thing! Check out the video with +Suite 709 to hear the difference (and for the full effect, listen with your favorite pair of headphones).

So this is great news for live online music, but let’s just imagine for a minute if this new feature of G+ was available in a mobile API that developers could use so a user could broadcast live performance from inside an app into a google hangout. Wouldn’t that take mobile music in a very interesting direction?

If you want to, if you’re using Pollisynth then why not share your stuff. Here are my recently Synthesized images.

AudioShare – audio document manager arrives

At last AudioShare arrives on the app store. Here’s what to expect:

AudioShare is an audio document manager with powerful import and export abilities. If you are using music-making apps, then this is a very useful tool to have!

Use it to transfer soundfiles between apps and between your device and computer. For example, take a soundfile from your dropbox, open it in AudioShare and share it on SoundCloud. Or audiocopy sounds from your favorite music-making app and import into the AudioShare library for later sharing or copying into other apps.

You can also record directly in the app, and preview and play soundfiles with waveform display.


INPUTS

  • Record directly in app
  • AudioPaste
  • “Open in” from other app
  • iTunes file sharing

OUTPUTS

  • Playback directly in app
  • AudioCopy
  • SoundCloud upload
  • “Open in” another app (for example DropBox)
  • Send by email
  • iTunes file sharing

The app is priced at $1.99

New app confirmed from the maker of BitWiz: AudioShare

From the maker of the excellent BitWiz synth, a new app is on the way, and it looks like this is something that’s been needed for a long time.

AudioShare is an audio document manager with powerful import and export abilities.

Use it to transfer soundfiles between apps and between your device and computer. For example, take a soundfile from your dropbox, open it in AudioShare and share it on SoundCloud. Or audiocopy sounds from your favorite music-making app and import into the AudioShare library for later sharing or copying into other apps.
You can also record directly in the app, and preview and play soundfiles with waveform display.

Inputs:

  • Record directly in app
  • AudioPaste
  • “Open in” from other app (like DropBox, Mail, BitWiz, etc)
  • iTunes file sharing

Outputs:

  • Playback directly in app
  • AudioCopy
  • SoundCloud upload
  • “Open in” another app (like DropBox, etc)
  • Send by email
  • iTunes file sharing

I don’t know what the pricing will look like on this as yet, but if it’s as good as BitWiz then it will be worth the money. Also I’m hearing that MIDI is coming too.

If you don’t already know BitWiz it really is worth checking out.
