iOS Music News Around The Internet:
Thanks to everyone for checking out episode #23 of the podcast, which featured part one of my interview with Photophore Synth developer Nick Dika. It’s a pretty cool synth and I’m always thrilled to see new developers bring quality synth apps onto the scene. Big shout-out to Jeff McCarthy from Supersonic Tartan Death Machine who got some inspiration from the show and picked up Photophore It was a great episode that included Phase84 as my app pick, a look at new features in AudioShare, and music from Julian Wollny – you can check it out HERE

Speaking of the podcast, I talked about my new Patreon page on the show, something that I’m currently really excited about. It’s a way that you can support the show and insure it’s continued long life. Some of you may already be supporting other folks doing great work covering the iOS music world, like Tim Webb, Doug Woods, Jakob Haq, and more – since you’re already using Patreon, it’s easy to add your support to the iOS Music And You Podcast. I’ve embedded my video introduction to Patreon below – check it out and then please consider becoming a supporter of the iOS Music And You Podcast – you can do that HERE.

This month, the podcast has theme music from Sean Garland of iOS MARS. His music will open the show throughout the month of January, and we’ll be changing things up in February. I’m currently accepting submissions for February theme music, and I’d love to see everyone put a track into the running. It’s a great way to make people aware of your music; I’ll be sharing the song as well as links to your various websites. You can check out the current submissions and get the full details HERE; throw your music into the mix by sending me a link to your track.

Perhaps the biggest news of the week came from the folks at WaveMachine Labs, who announced the upcoming arrival of Auria Pro in the near future. This new app will bring some highly desired features to Auria, including the ability to program MIDI from within the app. It will also include the FabFilter 2 Twin synth built into Auria Pro, real-time audio warping using Elastique Pro 3, audio to MIDI conversion, and much more. Auria has a very dedicated following of users (including myself!) that will be very excited to use this new app. The folks at WaveMachine Labs have said that Auria Pro will be priced at $49.99; current users will be able to upgrade to the Pro version through a reduced price inn-app purchase. Auria Pro will be available in Spring 2015 – personally I can’t wait; they’ll be showing off Auria Pro at NAMM this week, so maybe we’ll hear more soon. For the time being, check out the pictures below. and then get the full scoop HERE.

Alexandernaut, the developer behind one of my favorite apps, Arpeggionome Pro (you can hear me talk about it on episode # 19 of the podcast), has a new app on the horizon. I’m not exactly sure what this app promises, but based on the amazing functionality of Arpeggionome Pro I’m really excited. We do have a sneak preview of this new app through some SoundCloud snippets. I really like what I hear – that constant rhythmic motion is one of the things that I love about arpeggiators, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing what this offers. Check out the SoundCloud clips below and if you’ve got any guesses about the app, leave them in the comments below!

There are a lot of great apps on the horizon, and one that I’m really anticipating is AUFX:Push from Kymatica developer Jonatan Liljedahl. He’s given us some amazing iOS apps in the past, including AudioShare SECTOR, AUFX:Space, AUFX:Dub, and more. It’s always great to hear about apps coming from developers that we respect and Jonatan certainly gets ultimate respect from me. In the last couple of weeks, he has announced the upcoming arrival of AUFX:Push, another effect app that we don’t know mmuch about. We did get a nice sneak preview this week though, in the form of a snapshot of the app in action. It looks like a compressor app, which I think will make a nice addition to my Audiobus signal chain. Check out the picture below – if you have other ideas, leave them in the comments!

We’re fully past 2014 at this point and moving deep into 2015, so it’s time to start looking ahead. Fortunately, over at iPad Music, they’ve got their eyes firmly focused on the future. They published a great article this week entitled “iOS Music In 2015,” that muses about a lot of things on the horizon. They talk about Auria Pro, the upcoming port of Cyclops from Sugar Bytes, the possibility of Massive Synth coming to iOS. It definintely provides some food for thought . . . and adds a bit of potential excitement to the future of iOS music. It’s definitely worth a read – you can find it HERE.

I love the weekly Haq Attaq videos from Jakob Haq – he does such a great job of combining some humor and entertaining visuals with solid information about iOS music apps. This week, Jakob released a fantastic new video that actually shows us how he puts these videos together. I love the way that he pulls back the curtain on Haq Attaq here and introduces us to some cool iOS video production apps. In addition, Jakob sent out a nice shout-out to the iOS Music And You podcast which is much appreciated! You can check out the video below and then make sure that you subscribe to the Jakob Haq’s YouTube Channel.

There’s no better way to start off the week than be getting some inspiration from our peers in the iOS Music Community. We got a new track from Sealpt this past week, a fantastic guitarist, better known as Shawn McClure. His latest, “All That Glitters,” is another inspired instrumental rock track, this time constructed using Nave, BeatMaker 2, Audio Mastering, AudioShare, Audiobus and iProphet. Rheyne returned with Live Jam #112 this week, bringing us more of his electronic looping that combines hardware, Ableton Live, and iPad music apps. This time around, he’s using Lemur; if you haven’t checked it out yet, check out Rheyne’s first album collecting a number of his Live Jams – you can find it HERE. Enjoy the tracks in this post – I can’t wait to hear what you create this week!

I’m always excited to hear new music from the iOS music community – I just need to hear about them! So, as you’re putting tunes out into the world this week, make sure that you let me know so that I can share them with the world. You can send me a link via e-mail, post it on the iOS Music And You Facebook Page, or tweet me – @iosmusicandyou. I look forward to hearing your music!
