DrumtrackHD Review


You know you've got a great bit of software in front of you when you keeping finding things and thinking 'wow, that's really useful', and 'I didn't know they'd put that feature in'.

Well that's how I feel about DrumTrackHD. I've always like the iPhone/Touch version of the app and I was really pleased when the iPad version came out. The interface is very similar so the learning curve from one app to the other is quite short.

However there's plenty of features in the new HD version of this excellent drum machine. I've really enjoyed the additional screen space with the iPad version. It's made a big difference to workflow within this app.

One of the great things about DrumTrackHD is the level of control over each step in your pattern. Each step has individual volume, pan, pitch control and gives you just want to for you patterns especially with up to 16 tracks in the pattern too.

All of the export options that were there in the original, which makes it an easy addition to your existing workflow.

I also like the new FX in the app. Overall this is a great drum machine for the iPad and I hope that it will continue to get better and better.

Overall I like this app because it is simple to use with plenty of options to configure it

DrumtrackHD is priced at $9.99

Noise Boxx for iPhone


A new noise maker for iOS. Thanks to Piet for sending me an email about this app. Here's the details:

Noise Boxx is just what the name says: it's a box which makes noise. But it makes very cool noises, and you are in complete control!

For the audio-techies among you: Noise Boxx is a Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO), which can be linked to a Voltage Controller Oscillator (VCO) and a noise generator.

For the not-so-audio-techies: Noise Boxx is an app with a virtual keyboard and five dials, which you can combine to make the most awesome of noises!

Just fiddle with the rate and intensity of the LFO, change the VCO's pitch to something absurdly high and observe the reaction of people and animals around you.

But don't just be annoying! Noise Boxx can also be used as a real instrument. Consider it a synthesizer without the piano lessons! Just listen to a beat or song and play along on your Noise Boxx!

Can anyone help with this?

This is completely off topic but I thought I'd ask as I know someone will have an answer.

I've got a mac mini that I want to use with my MacBook but without a screen or keyboard, so I want to control the whole thing from my MacBook. First off, is that possible, and how could I do it?

All help gratefully received.

Some thoughts on 50 in 1 Piano HD (and the iPhone version)


I've been playing with this app for a few days both on the iPad and iPhone, and it is a really nice app. Great for mucking about with some keyboard ideas or just doodling.

But that's not what I wanted to write about here. I was playing with the lessons in the app, and they are great fun. If anything I think these 'lessons' good go a lot further then they do now. I think that they would be great for game center. For kids the lessons are a great way to get them into trying to get better at playing songs.

If you've got children I'd say this is well worth checking out.

The wait list ...

It has been a while since I wrote a 'wait list' post, but I thought I would as there's a few on the list now, at least for me anyway.
  • Fairlight app: The long awaited
  • Fruit Loops mobile: What will the specs be like?
  • Tympanum, the next iOS app from miniMusic
  • Isle of Tune: Making music with your world
Is there anything I've missed?

    I was taking a look at the workflow thread this morning and saw some really interesting ideas on using Monle to work with FTP and also goodreader for moving files as well.

    I think I might have to try out those myself.
