My Korg Garget got updated to version 2 for free. Nice new features. A few new modules and support for external midi instruments.

Synth One is great. That’s a lot of functions for a free synth. They have an FM synth that’s free now also

I have this app and it's fun and fuk. It sounds REALLY good and kept my MOOG thirst in check for a LONG time. I mean it made my car system growl like a muhfuka.

A great great app. Best virtual analog app on my iPad. $14 USD in the app store.

I know you all heard me say it before but I keep on discovering stuff so of course I’m gonna spill the beans on it.

The app is able to save/load patches and there are lots of patches shared here.

Spent the last couple days digging into BeatMaker 3. Trying to get the workflow down better. I’ve spent so much time with hardware the last year I kind of just been skimming through mobile apps. I bought BM3 when it came out.

They have been working hard on this app. Support for AU, IAA, Audiobus is really good. BM3 is completely multitimbral with banks of 16 channel midi very configurable. That means you can sequence multiple hardware instruments with it if you have the interface that has multiple 5 pin outs on it and some midi thru boxes. Easily sequence 32 external channels while still using internal routing to run iOS synths and sound modules. The midi editing has improved greatly on it as well.

My wait for Akai to get the standalone MPC or if he’ll froze over and Roland ever listened and gave us an updated my series sampler, is over.

BM3 has all the features I wanted out of these. Midi controllers that take focus when you switch highlight of tracks works good also.

Midi mapping is super easy and supports easily mapping controllers and saving as template.

They have good browser for previewing samples and disk streaming samples. Hands down, for me, the best multitracking app similar to Ableton features. They have scenes and good time stretching as well plus good built in fx

Great job they’ve done.

****, I’m stressed over intua and bm3. The main dev. Matt is no longer on the dev team and we haven’t had an update since November. Very worried for the future. Rumor has it Matt is working on something new and I think it’s with the msx audio guys.

Hopefully they get another great dev and no one left hard to decipher code.

I haven’t experienced too many bugs with it although I’m sure there are some still. It’s a pretty fully fledged product.

I started with NanoStudio and moved to BM2 then BM3 but NanoStudio 2 is out now also. Haven’t tried it yet but tempted to. BM3 is really covering all my needs now though. Took a little while digging into it to see differences from BM2 and understand all it could do, but once understood, has been more of a translation from features I used in Ableton Live vs features in BM2. Its on a whole different level than BM2, that’s for sure.
