Triqtraq update – Zaplin add Audiobus 3 support to their pocket-sized electronic music app

One of the first apps I reviewed here on the Music App Blog back in mid-2012 was the rather wonderful Triqtraq by Zaplin Music. Not long before looking at triqtraq, I'd also reviewed Propellerhead's Figure. I suspect Figure is an app the almost every long-standing iOS musician has experienced and, what it lacks in sophisticated features, it more than makes up for in the fun it provides.

Patterning update – Olympia Noise Co tweak their Ableton Live export in their brilliant iOS drum machine app

Blocs Wave updated – Novation add Launchpad for iOS soundpack access to their loop-based music app

Since launched, Novation's Blocs Wave has moved forward at quite a pace. The app itself, like Novation's Launchpad, is also a loop and sample-based music creation tool...   but with some feature differences that make it distinct from the LaunchPad approach. Anyway, Novation have rapidly developed the Blocs Wave concept further and a number of updates have already appeared for the app adding new import features, Ableton Link support, new export features, the very creative Slice Mode, a song … [Read more...]

Blocs Wave updated – Novation add Ableton Live export to their loop-based music app – and it’s still ON SALE
