If you haven’t checked out the video for Aurora Sound Studio for iphone/ipod touch yet, you must.
It’s an impressive little beast.
And coming soon, Aurora Sound Studio HD for iPad!
So, there i am surfing the net. I might be addicted. You too? How the hell did we get by without this thing?
Anyway, i’m checking my favourite sites and BOOM! there it is. Rebirth for the iPhone!
Man talk about taking a trip back in time.
If you’re not familiar with Rebirth, it’s an emulation of 3 classic roland boxes.
The awesome tr-909 and tr-808 drum machines, and the mighty tb-303 bassline.
These machines are revered for their sounds and still fetch big bucks on ebay.
When Propellerheads released rebirth in the mid 90′s, it was a revolution.
The sound of Rebirth was superb and suddenly anyone could make filthy acid tracks with these machines; albeit virtually.
Development of Rebirth ceased in 1999, and in 2005 Propellerheads made the program freely available to everyone via the rebirth museum.
I highly recommend checking out the museum and discovering the impact Rebirth had on the music making community.
But back to the iPhone. Rebirth is on the freakin’ iPhone!
As soon as i saw it, my legs gave way and my wallet got a little lighter.
check it out!
Just when you thought you’d seen every kind of interface, along comes O-Gawa.
Yudo are no slouches in the music app world, having brought you Matrix Music Pad, 8Bitone, Rectools and Vocoder SV-5 amongst others.
And now they drop O-Gawa for iPad.
What amazes me about all the apps coming out are the innovative interfaces people come up with, and this one is awesome!
The highly anticipated iHolophone from Amidio is now available in the app store.
iHolophone has a really interesting interface and comes with stacks of sounds.
Here’s what Amidio has to say…
Holophone is a new amazing music instrument for effortless live performing over fully programmable sequencer beats.
Truly futuristic and soulful, iHolophone addresses the two most important aspects of the music – the melody and the rhythm, and is packed with 250 mb of impressive sounds.
No music education is needed to play iHolophone, but even serious musicians will find it fun and useful. Powered by the all-new CrystalClarity 64-bit sound engine, iHolophone takes your creative potential to the max, and the HoloDiscs touch technology lets you explore the sonic horizons of melodies which exist only in your imagination, and remain always in tune.
iHolophone ships with a massive factory set of 40 factory scenes with 160 factory sequencer patterns, and you can easily build your own scenes, choosing from 60 modern instrument sounds, 800 hi-quality percussive and melodic sequencer samples, and 70 background pictures. Coming up with new melodies has never been so quick and easy before – instead of random travelling across pre-defined music scales, this application represents a totally different and fresh approach which finally brings you simple yet total control over your own melodic progressions.
Initially a daring concept, iHolophone is very different from any other music applications. Place your thumbs on the two HoloDiscs and make the magic happen. The rhythms, sounds and harmonies produced by the player blend with the changing screen backgrounds to become more than just music, but a deep atmospheric morphing kind of art that will immerse you into evocative realities.
* No musical skills required to achieve great results.
* The most enjoyable way to make up new melodies from scratch even for serious musicians.
* Premium selection of 60 modern music instruments, powered by the supreme-quality CrystalClarity 64-bit sound engine.
* 40 amazing factory Scenes (Melodic and Beats), demonstrating the power of iHolophone.
* HoloDiscs touch technology allow unprecedented sound control (attack, release, vibrato, volume, portamento) by just changing the finger position inside the HoloDiscs.
* Accelerometer note-bend control and switching between instruments.
* Fully programmable 8-track stereo drum machine/rhythm sequencer with support for triplets and swing.
* 800 stereo sequencer drum, percussion and melodic samples, with 160 demo factory sequencer patterns.
* Adjustable lush stereo reverb and delay effects.
* Advanced functionality: supports Intua Pasteboard, sample pitchshift/timestretch, Twitter/Facebook intergration.
Can’t wait to get my fingers on it!

From the makers of the original iPhone Piano app, comes the iPad’s very first piano app.
Due to go live on the App Store this Saturday, the day the iPad launches as well (in case you’ve been hibernating in a cave somewhere), is Pianist Pro from MooCowMusic. Not much is known about the full and final features of this app, but it’s fair to assume the core features will include everything available in the existing Pianist app, which offers a slick, easy to use interface, a metronome, multi-track recording, and more.
Here’s some screenshots to wet your appetite. (CLICK each images to see a full size version)

Saitara Software has just released an update for it DAW wireless control software with, AC-7 DAW CONTROLLER V2.0.
However, we’re even more excited to see the developer is working on a ‘Pro’ version specially for the iPad. Aside from the obvious benefits of the larger display offering more room for additional controls, we’re not sure at this stage what other features this new Pro version of the app will include. If the look of the user interface is anything to go by, its shaping up very nicely indeed.
Head to the developers website for the latest on this app – http://www.saitarasoftware.com/Site/AC-7_Pro.html
It’s exciting stuff to see developers of music apps already focusing on new releases for the iPad before it’s even released! The team behind bleep!BOX claims ver 1.2.0 has been submitted to Apple and hopefully it will be amongst the list of iPad launch titles.
There have also been some new features added in addition to the new interface that takes advantage of the bigger display real estate.
Most pleasing to learn is, that existing owners of the app won’t need to pay again for this ‘iPad-friendly’ update, and in fact can run it on both an iPhone/Touch as well as an iPad
