Polychord for iPad

polychord music app for iPad from gregory Wieber on Vimeo.


"On thesixtyone, new artists make music and listeners decide what's good. We're nurturing a growing ecosystem where talented folks can sell songs and merchandise directly to their fans. Unlike a record or distribution deal where they only make $1-2 per album (if they ever get paid, that is), artists on thesixtyone make at least $7 per album and are paid every 30 days -- no wait for recoupment and no complex royalty schemes!
We're named after Highway 61, a U.S. route that runs along the Mississippi River and marks the origin of American music culture. Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan and B.B. King rode the 61. Elvis grew up in the housing projects along it. Highway 61 was the road by which people left their homes to take their music to the world."

Black Coffie Break with Audiotool

Audiotool is the best online complete music creation tool and it is getting better and bigger with more instruments effects and audio midi sequencer.
Today while drinking coffie and playing with audiotool I was imaging having it on the iPad.

In my opinion it looks and feels like it was made for iPad. 
I dont bother going into details, you have to try it by yourself. www.audiotool.com
Sadly it is in Flash, so by now no way to fire it up from iPad. Audiotool cannot be just reproduced with Javascript or CSS.
One solution would be a dedicated Audiotool app ;) or  iOS with flash support...

When's the next update you ask? Well I want to include a couple of other things too (such as improved sample interpolation) so it's probably going to be sent to Apple early next week. Expect it to be available in the app store in approximately 3 weeks time!"

Rytmik Rock Edition is an application for creating rhythmical and melodic themes and for composing whole songs.

It contains more than 133 carefully selected sound samples of drum set, keyboards, bass, clean, lead and rhytm guitars instruments.
With Rytmik Rock Edition you can quickly and easily create the basic building stone – an audio clip. It consists of musical notations for up to four instruments that you may transpose, select their location in the stereo field, and modify their volume, polyphony and echo. You may arbitrarily combine up to 128 such clips in four tracks and create complex pieces of music. Moreover you have a collection of 10 pre-made compositions at your disposal that you may quickly compose your own pieces from.
Rytmik Rock Edition is not only for playing with sounds; in the hands of a skilful musician it can become a serious musical instrument – surprisingly powerful pocket music station. For the best musical experience we recommend connecting headphones or quality speaker system. You’ll become the king of the Rock party in no time…
