Following the release of it iPad-friendly audio interface, iTrack Solo, last year, Focusrite has come up with an all-in-one bundle for iMusicians, presumably just starting that have no recording equipment, or at least nothing decent anyway. Read on for their announcement.

The Complete Recording Package for iPad, Mac and PC

Whether you’re an experienced musician or just starting out, iTrack Studio gives you everything you need to record music on your iPad, Mac, or Windows PC. At the heart of iTrack Studio is the Focusrite iTrack Solo: a 2-in, 2-out audio interface with a Focusrite mic preamp developed with over 25 years of Focusrite experience. In addition, there’s a high-quality studio condenser microphone, monitoring headphones and all the cables you need, plus excellent integration with Tape by Focusrite: the beautiful, free recording app for iPad and a suite of recording software and effects for Mac and Windows available Autumn 2013.

iTrack Studio

The iTrack Solo Audio Interface

The quality of the audio interface is one of the defining characteristics of a recording system, and Focusrite is an acknowledged leader in computer audio interfaces. iTrack Studio includes Focusrite’s solid, metal-cased iTrack Solo interface, with an instrument input and a microphone preamplifier designed specifically for Focusrite’s computer interfaces. Record your vocal with the included studio microphone and capture your instrument at the same time on a different track.

iTrack Solo ensures that everything is captured as high quality audio – up to 24-bit 96kHz sampling (significantly better than CD quality). It comes with a 30-pin device link cable for connection to an iPad and can be connected to iPad 4 and iPad mini via an inexpensive Lightning adapter – it can also connect via USB to a Windows or Mac computer.

If you can hear it, you can record it. There’s even a high-quality, 3m long low-noise microphone cable included to connect the CM25S to the iTrack Solo. Meanwhile, the included HP60S studio monitoring headphones give you a clear, unflattering and accurate impression of exactly how your music sounds, so you can get it just the way you want it. And when you play it back elsewhere, it’ll sound great. Plus they’re comfortable, too.

CrazySpace – Gravity Synth

Posted by Mikers On July - 22 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

mzl.rvhsuend.480x480-75CrazySpace is the App Stores very first gravity modulated subtractive synthesizer. Using our unique multitouch control system, musicians and non-musicians will be able to start shredding in no time at all.

Featuring a powerful synthesis engine with a total of fifteen high quality oscillators, delivering five voice polyphony at 16 Bit 44,100Hz and a high quality resonant low pass filter. This synthesizer is suitable for jamming on a train or performing huge synth lines on stage.

The easy to use programmable scale system allows the user to access twenty well known scales in any key they desire. Ranging from major and minor scales all the way to the beautiful sounding dorian scale, the possibilities are endless.

Gravity modulation is controlled via the displayed objects orbiting a central point. Each object represents an oscillator in the synthesizer engine. The size of the each object correlates to the oscillators volume. Using gravity to modulate individual oscillator volume creates a movement to the sound which is not present in traditional subtractive synthesis.

CrazySpace is a universal application for iOS 5 or above, compatible on iPhone 4S/5, iPad 2 or above and iPod Touch 5th Generation.
