The new Allihoopa app is a hub, for, well, Allihoopa I guess

It’s interesting to see how Allihoopa is developing out at the moment. Starting as a part of Propellerheads with Figure and now spun out as a thing in its own right. Whilst it has only a small number of apps connected to it (Figure, Take, SoundTrap, and Gadget (soon)), I get the feeling that the aim here is to become a mobile hub, or, dare I say it, social network for mobile musicians.

There are worse things it could be, and to be honest I think it could be a very good place to house a true sharing community. It needs more support and apps to take it, but hopefully that will come soon enough.

Here are the details of the app:

Connect with people and ideas that move you. Get inspired to create. Allihoopa unites everyone doing music together.

Follow your friends to keep up with what they’re making. Listen, like and comment on pieces. Share, remix and collaborate with music makers all over the world. Join the Allihoopa community, connecting music pieces, apps and people.

Using Allihoopa is easy!

  1. Browse the app for music that inspires you—recordings, beats, samples, songs and ideas. Allihoopa is the world’s largest pool of ‘open source’ music.
  2. Listen, like and comment when you find music that grabs you, and follow those who inspire to keep up with what they’re making
  3. Open anything you like in any connected music-making app—Figure, Take, Soundtrap, Propellerhead Reason or Korg Gadget
  4. Add to it, then drop your version back to Allihoopa for praise, feedback and to let others continue building on your piece!
  5. Super-like cool sounds you find to save them to your Soundboard on your profile

This is an early version of the Allihoopa app that we’re letting out of the nest and we’re excited to get your feedback on how we can improve! Let us know what you think and what you’d like to see next – send us a message at facebook.com/Allihoopa or tweet us @allihoopa

Soundtrap universal arrives

Whilst it’s always good to see new apps arrives on the app store, and also to see new models for music creation, it’s worth noting that not all models work all the time. Soundtrap’s model is subscription based starting with a free app. Subscriptions work in lots of different sectors and industries, and indeed with some app models, so it’ll be interesting to see how well this is received.

I don’t want to pre-judge this at all, I’ll let you make up your own mind about it, but I have to say I’m curious to find out what reception it gets.

Make up your own mind … Here are the app’s details:
