CDM on Apple's new lightning connector and accessories

Interesting perspective from CDM on the new connector from Apple.

Personally I'm not sure though. Whilst it does add to the length of the device, the biggest problem is how unstable the connections will be. Especially for live work. I guess time will tell. Once I've got an iPhone 5 I'll let you know what I think of it in practice.

Will there be an OP-2?

I saw a thread over at the Oh Pee Won forum and it made me wonder if Teenage Engineering will deliver an updated hardware version of the OP-1 (an OP-2 maybe), or if their current strategy of updating the operating system will keep them going for a long time?

Sinewave Synthesizer universal arrives

A nice looking and free app for your iDevice:

It's a simple synth that looks niftly. This app is a 16 step sinewave synthesizer that allows you to configure the pitch, mode, scale, and bpm. Please try it out.
