Aurora for Pocket PC



Well I didn't expect to see a new Pocket PC application come out, especially from 4Pockets, but it is great to know that they are still making new music software for Windows Mobile.

This makes me think of iPhone apps like SoundGrid and other similar apps, but from the video there seems to be lots in there. Here's what the video page on YouTube says:
Aurora gives you pattern based programming and light combination software which runs right on your Pocket PC, and best of all, you dont need to have a musical bone in your body to create great tunes. By simply choosing a musical scale every note you play is in perfect tune, leaving you to choose what sounds best.

Great, but what does Aurora offer the more accomplished musician I hear you ask? Well, Aurora hides a lot of its complexity from novice users, but by switching to advanced mode you get full control over the built in instruments and effects, as well as many advanced modes such as the Atomizer and XY Mode which allows you to manipulate sound in real-time. You can create your own instrument from recordings made using the built in microphone. Just think, a full drum kit of you beatboxing into the microphone!

Aurora allows a mixture of pattern based recording and live performance. You can piece together complete compositions, or simply improvise a performance, all of which can be captured to a file, for use as a ringtones, or to share with others.

An integrated mixer, combined with the ability to add audio effects and layer automation means that you achieve a pretty sophisticated sound in a fun and user friendly way.

Looking forward to this for next month now!
