Last Few Days To Help


Hello iOS Musicians! Today I have a very special announcement. As you may or may not know Apple decided it was in their best interest to cancel the affiliate program for selling apps starting October of this year which means us bloggers and reviewers will no longer get that little bit of incentive to help support our passions by pushing apps through affiliate links. PLEASE help by purchasing from my site we have three days left. Thank you everyone for your support over the years. I started this back in 2010 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I will continue to review apps and publish news but I'm planning to really push my Youtube channel more so please if you have not subscribed please do and hit the little bell icon so you get notifications when new videos are up. I also started a Patreon account.

Sonogrid helps you deeply explore music. You can use it like a drum machine, an advanced metronome, an ear trainer, compositional sketchpad, or just to have fun with sound and music.

No musical experience is necessary to enjoy the app, and that’s what makes it fun, but certain features might feed your creativity if you already make music. For musicians, there are new time signatures, polyrhythms, scales, and the possibility to combine any of them in new ways. For dancers, a highly-flexible accompaniment that never needs to stop. For teachers, a clear way to represent time and help students understand the space between beats. For improvisers, something fun to play along with and to take you to new spaces. For music nerds, plans cancelled.

Fluxly is a musical physics looper where you create new instrument scenes by moving and spinning colorful Fluxum sound sample players. Fluxly brings a whole new approach to knob twiddling and sound making. Now compatible with Audiobus.

You can choose from a bank of built-in sound samples, or record your own samples and play them back in either direction at any speed. By touching two Fluxum and pushing them together you can link them into looping gear train machines. You can also enable movement and let the built-in physics engine take over as the Fluxum bounce around the instrument for random sonic fun.

Recording can be done right in the app, and loops can be up to about 10 seconds long. You can also customize all of the sounds in Bank 1 by using iTunes and the filesharing features of your iPhone or iPad to upload any sound samples from your computer.

Korg announced Electribe Wave which is marketed for EDM producers. It comes with a hefty amount of aggressive sounding wavetables and cool motion automation to achieve some wicked Dubstep and Drum and Bass type growls. There aren’t a whole lot of presets (only 25) but there are quite a bit of drum samples. It is not an audio unit nor is does it support IAA. You can not import your own wavetables and samples either perhaps in a future update. There is also a Koass pad type X/Y pad.

The next evolution in music software. Powerful wavetable sound. The next generation ELECTRIBE produces state-of-the-art dance music.

The ELECTRIBE series first appeared in 1999. Since then each generation has inherited the iconic, intuitive operability of the original while incorporating the most up-to-date sounds and styles.
