ChordFlow launched – new iOS MIDI chord sequencer app from Dmitry Klochkov

I did a round-up article a good while ago here on the Music App Blog that looked at the various ‘MIDI performance’ apps available for iOS. A couple of apps that have appeared since that article are ChordUp and Clawtar, both from developer Dmitry Klochkov. Both bring a slightly different take on the whole MIDI note creation process and I'm sure many iOS musicians could find a use for either app amongst their utility apps. Both are also available for pocket money prices. If either of these two … [Read more...]

SoundPrism Pro updated – MIDI performance app from Audanika gets Audiobus update

I reviewed SoundPrism Pro – produced by Audanika and currently priced at UK£3.99 – about 18 months ago on the Music App Blog. SoundPrism Pro is essentially a MIDI performance app. Rather like apps such as Chordion, Gestrument and Synthecaster (all of which I have reviewed previously on the site), SoundPrism Pro does include its own audio engine and has a small collection of sounds built in to it, its real strength is as a performance interface that uses the touchscreen to allow the user to send … [Read more...]
