Yesterday, one of the better iOS music production sites (and a fine resource for music apps) iDesignSound.com called it quits. Owner Alex pulled the plug on the website + domain name in order to spend more time with his family. Fortunately he’ll still be lurking around in the iOS community. We wish him the best of luck for any future projects that he might be involved in in the far future! All good things must come to an end. It’s been fun but time for me to move on 🙂 — iDesignSound (@iDesignSound) April 14, 2014
The recently released DrumPerfect is a very deep drum sequencing app with advanced editing options. The UI however can get in the way of a quick workflow when building up a drum pattern. Luckily developer Marinus keeps a close ear to the user community and introduces a much needed improvement to the app in version 1.02. The grid view (featured image) is one of the significant improvements in the new update which should appear in the App Store somewhere today. This grid view allows you to easily sequence all your drum hits at once similar to DM1. Here’s the full […]
Funkbox, the classic drum machine emulating app received a big update this week which adds Inter App Audio and Audiobus 2 (with State Saving) support.

Here are the full update details: OS 7.1 […]

As announced, Audiobus 2.0 arrived on the App Store today. The new update that allows for multi-routing (via IAP), preset sharing (with state saving) and input support for multi-channel hardware has found a positive response so far in the official forum topic and it’s only a matter of time before Social Media channels will be flooded with shared presets. Workaround for In App Purchase crash A bug slipped through in the release as existing Audiobus users may experience a crash when purchasing the unlimited routing option through the In App Purchase. The app already directs you to a workaround that […]
The upcoming update for Cubasis on the iPad will be a big one, as the much wanted Automation functionality will finally be added in 1.8. Today, Steinberg released a teaser video on how this will look in the app. Cubasis 1.8 will be released this month.
I loaded up the new OS on my OP-1 and decided to draw the momupro logo using the new Sketch sequencer. Check out the video and the noise the new DSynth can produce at the end.
