Win8ChucKBasicFrettingAndLegato Wi Fi, details below:
I got basic fretting (loose fretting… it won’t completely prevent quartertones, etc if you play them exactly), and legato rules. I am back to the ChucK engine while I get better acquainted with SuperCollider coding. This is just a Windows 8 based OSC controller. It works running into ChucK or SuperCollider
A brief video of part of the demo from tonight’s demo of audiobus.
What’s the difference between Audiobus and Virtual MIDI?
Virtual MIDI is a local communications channel for passing around MIDI messages like “C# 1, Velocity 127“, or “Modulation, 50” – simple messages that control how a synthesizer should generate audio. Audiobus is a communications channel for sending live audio, like the audible output of a synthesizer app, or the output of a guitar amp effects app, for example.
Audio tracks – Import WAV/MP3/AAC/AudioPaste & iPod library.
Wave editor – Cut, trim, normalize, reverse, fade in/out
Multi-tracking – Up to 8 track simultaneous recording
FL Studio Mobile HD – Now a Universal App
iPad retina display – Supported
Dropbox – Export to Dropbox. Import from Dropbox App.
Library – Amped Guitar & Bass pack in the shop
ZIP – Export improved to include all custom instruments, audio recordings and the project
NOTE: To load an FL Mobile 2 projects in FL Studio for Windows you will need FL Studio 10.8 or higher. In addition to use the Amped expansion you will need to delete the existing FL Mobile Samples folder, from the Shared Data folder (C:\Program Files\Image-Line\Shared\Data\FL Mobile Samples) then re-download it from the content library.
Where’s ANDROID will it EVER happen?! Yes. see here…
A quick first impression video of FL Studio v2.0 featuring audio tracks, Dropbox file management, and Virtual MIDI. If you’re already familiar with Xewton’s Music Studio, this demo will look pretty familiar…

FL Studio Mobile will allow you to create complete multi-track projects on your iPod, iPhone or iPad and, if you want, load mobile projects into FL Studio and take them to the next level. If it’s a beat on the step sequencer, a melody on the piano roll or a full song on the playlist, FL Studio Mobile has you covered.
The Tabletop guys are having fun on their Mobile Music Meetup
“This was our second Mobile Music Meetup. Carson Day played his semi analogue set, Ami L looped live and Jordan was the main DJ. We also had Keisuke showing us his VJ set all night long. It was a great evening and fun to see the mobile music community growing.”
Video details below:
http://www.pointblankonline.net/ In the next 3 episodes in our ‘Making Music with Apps’ series Danny J Lewis shows you how you can put together professional sounding tracks on the move. In this tutorial he starts off with the beatmaking using Native Instrument’s iMaschine.
This approach is all about making the most of the unique qualities of each app and recording the results into Ableton as audio clips. The advantage is that you are committing the sound that you have made to audio so there is no temptation to endlessly fiddle with the synth parameters or the intricacies of the midi patterns and you can get on with the task of arranging the parts to make that banging tune that your 8 bar loop had promised!

welcome to my house/mobile studio! just giving her a test jam out! hope you enjoy! Everything played live and fully improvised, no sequencing or loops were used.
