Cyclop updated – Sugar Bytes start a round of compatibility updates?

Download from iTunes App Store

cyclop logoAs most long-standing iOS music makers would be expecting, there is a flurry of minor technical updates appearing on the App Store at present as developers do their best to ensure a smooth passage into iOS9 for their own particular apps. Sugar Bytes look like they have this underway with an update to Cyclop appearing this morning. Expect similar updates to appear for their other apps shortly.

The notes that accompanied this particular update – taking Cyclop to v.1.0.3 – confirm that the Audiobus SDK has been updated and ‘compatibility updates’, so I assume this is all in preparation for iOS9.

No, UK£18.99 Cyclop this will not be the cheapest iOS music app you might ever buy but, if you are a fan of electronic music production, Cyclop is a stonker of a mono/bass synth and absolutely worth every penny (cent).

Cyclop - Sugar Bytes bring their bass synth to the iPad.

I’m happy to admit to being a bit of a Sugar Bytes fan. I like the fact that their software offers something just a bit different and, while I do occasionally find myself squinting at the control surfaces (bring on the iPad Pro in that regard), once you dig in to what’s on offer in any of these apps, you can get some excellent results. Check out the original review for Cyclop but, for electronic music producers, without hesitation, this is an app that comes highly recommended.
