The earlier announced B-Step Sequencer by Monoplugs is now available in the App Store.

Transform your iPad to a real music-sequencer workstation with B-Step! The sequencer comes with native support for one or two Novation Launchpads. B-Step supports CoreMIDI, Virtual MIDI ports, Network MIDI and a lot of MIDI hardware devices! It also supports MIDI Learn, so you can control B-Step’s user interface with any MIDI […]

Kapture, the recording watch that allows you to capture every last 60 seconds with the tap of a button is scheduled for delivery this Summer. A new update was posted on the device’s Kickstarter page about the progress the Kapture team is making hardware- and software-wise. The watch has been made thinner and a new clasping mechanism is introduced in the production-ready prototype (which doesn’t look all that secure from the pictures). The associated app is also taking further shape, with the ability to conveniently categorise your audio recordings. Let’s hope it provides some proper export functionality for mobile musicians. […]
