It isn’t just for iOS, it isn’t just for Android and the desktop, oh no, it still runs on the lovely old Dell Axim and Windows Mobile.
Go take a look ..
For a variety of reasons I was feeling a bit retro, so I thought I’d show some love for Griff for the ancient Windows Mobile.
I was scouting around for this and just couldn’t believe that the Theresa software for Pocket PC is still around! I’m going to have to give this a try out at some point.
This is amazing … Here’s what’s coming:
- added MIDI import; now you can load any MIDI files directly through the Load Song dialog;
- added support of the following MIDI commands: Start, Continue, Stop;
- number of MetaModule User Defined Controllers can be changed from 0 to 13;
- added MIDI Omni Mode (all MIDI channels will be accepted);
- new option in the Preferences->User interface: Show virtual keyboard; use it to show or hide virtual text keyboard;
- scrolling when highlighting in the Sample Editor;
- per-pattern Mute/Solo (Timeline menu -> Toggle mute / Toggle solo);
- Vorbis Player is now supports the sample offset commands (09 and 07);
- added ability to create a new pattern by double clicking on an empty area of the Timeline;
- new Timeline function – Slice Pattern(s) (knife position = current playing position);
- new std. pattern effect 23 – set controller value to the random number with range from XX (00..FF) to YY (00..FF);
- new std. pattern effect 1F – set BPM;
- new songs: Manwe – Early Fall remake (original by Tangrine); Kostya Mahnev – Midnight; take_my_hand;
- new simple examples: metamodule_test, metamodule_with_automation, random_ctl_values_with_range;
- new instrument (pads): moving_pad, vocal_synth, filter_slide_up;
- new instrument (keyboard): fm2;
- bugs fixed;
- and more features in the final release…
I started a little thing called the Mobile Music Application Directory. Back then it was almost entirely Palm OS and Windows Mobile stuff, with some DS stuff too of course. It just amazes me to think that in 5 years mobile music has moved on to such a huge extent.
I’ve posted about this before (ages ago) but every now and then I think it’s worth posting about again. Griff, the mobile music studio for Windows mobile, is free, as in beer, and it’s really worth thinking about as if you’d paid for it back when it wasn’t free you’d have spent a lot of cash.
So, if you have an old Windows Mobile device knocking go can grab Griff as it and all it’s plug ins are now free.
If you don’t have an WinMo device I can recommend a Dell Axim X51 which has always done really well for me.
Hmm, quite eerie this one.
Quite enjoyed this one, very atmospheric.
