New NLog beta soon?

Looks like there may be more NLog goodness coming soon according to this tweet:
Working still on next beta, but played too long around with Virus TI :-) It is a good target for NLog synth. 1 or 2 more nights for beta..

I like the idea of the Virus TI being a target for NLog.

TUAW on micro podcasting


TUAW has a good post on micro podcasting including what Audioboo are up to.

I still haven't made much progress in this direction personally, but what I'm waiting for is for services to be able to take audio already produced on the iPhone and upload that. I'm guessing that copy and paste should be able to do it, or perhaps developers will have to build micro podcasting services into their apps.

Antix Player ported to Android

You may be wondering why this is a significant piece of news? Well, the Antix platform is a possible target platform for Mixtikl, xand on top of that is going to make it possible for games and apps to sit on hardware that runs the Antix platform.

I'm no export but I think that Antix is going to be big in the near future, and if it is running on Android then we could see some really great audio and music apps for Android running on Antix.

Korg DS-10 PLUS !!!!



Following on from the post a few days ago about the possibility about a new version, here it is. The main new features are:
  • 4 x Analogue Synths (from 2)
  • 8 x Drum synths
  • 12 tracks
  • Real time editing
However, I think the newer features are only workable with the DSi, at least that's the implication from the video above.

One thing that did strike me was that he ends with "and that's just the beginning", so what does that mean?

Pete posts on the continued progress with mixtikl on the iPhone and on Windows and the issues around getting data sharing working right. It sounds like this app is really going to be something when it arrives.

Personally I can't wait for Mixtikl on the iPhone and 1.5 on Windows Mobile.
