Great iPhone Music Apps, TechnoBox 808, 909, 303

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

I’ve been checking out some of the music apps out there for the iPhone, and my first thought was wouldn’t it be cool if someone could create something to emulate amazing but expensive music hardware like the innovative Tenori-On, and the Roland TR series machines. Well I searched, and there they were!

For Tenori-On like music making, there is TonePad, and SoundGrid.

For you classic techno music kids out there – If you liked the Roland TR series machines, or ReBirth on the computer from Propellerhead, check out the impressive TechnoBox from Audiorealism: 808, 909, 303 machine emulation and a cool new graphic interface.

I just think it’s amazing that for $5, you can get the sound and abilities of 3 hardware devices that would cost thousands of dollars to buy used on a phone.

I love technology!

Cool new audio technology

Monday, October 29th, 2007

Lately I’ve been making a lot of dark and intense non music related posts on here. What can I say, we’re living in the middle of the decline of the old world order… So here’s something more music and sound related!

There is lot’s of great new music and audio software out now, and I need to update in order to use the new version of my multi track host software (It uses multiple ‘plug in’ softwares that run within the main application to expand on it’s capabilities)

One of the most exciting is the new audio restoration software from iZotope, ‘RX’.
There has been a lot of amazing audio software that has blown my mind over the last 10 years, but this is something else – it can remove background sounds from audio without destroying the sound you want! Like removing a car beep from an interview, or filling in bits of sound that is missing from a recording! That’s right, it analyzes audio nearby the missing chunk and fills in the missing data. Like science fiction, but it’s real.

Listen for yourself to the RX Restoration video demo or the audio demos on the right if you have less time.

This is amazing stuff, and I am adding it to my arsenal in case you or those you love want some miracles worked with your audio.

The Future Of Modern Music Creation

Friday, August 24th, 2007

Some of you have seen this before, amazing stuff that is way beyond how I make music despite the fact that I use the latest commercially available technology and software. It’s called the ‘Reactable’ System from Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona Spain. If you don’t understand the basic principles of how modern music is made, you will probably have no idea what you are seeing in these videos:

Imagine having one of those in your home with some guests, now that’s my kind of party!

Progressive artists like Bjork are already starting to use this technology…
