Welcome to Episode #3 of the iOS Music And You Podcast, the place where we discuss making music on the iPad and iPhone! This has been quite an exciting time for iOS music making as we step into a new era with the release of Audiobus. The enthusiastic response from the iOS music making community has been consistently inspiring as we’ve all embraced the next phase of mobile music creation. I’m once again reminded about the huge amount of creative energy that’s exploding as people around the world embrace these devices – you guys are awesome!
In the first part of the episode, we take a listen to some exciting new music from iOS Music And You Patrick Devaney, “Massive Dynamic.” This song puts together influences from both jazz fusion and electronica through Patrick’s iPad using NanoStudio. It’s a great example of the diverse influences that Patrick brings into his music. He’s regularly putting out some amazing stuff, so I’d highly recommend that you head on over to Patrick’s SoundCloud site and check it out! He does some really great stuff, so give it a listen.
There’s so many of you putting out great music from your iPads and iPhones and I want to feature your music on the podcast! Do you have a song that you’d like to be played on the next podcast? Submit your music by sending me a link to your song on SoundCloud.
In next piece of the show, I talk about this episode’s app pick, and it’s the one on everyone’s mind – Audiobus. I get into Audiobus compatible apps and discuss some things that you can do using Audiobus. If you’re looking for more information on Audiobus, you can always check out our resource page that tells you which apps are compatible with the app or you can dig into our Audiobus tutorial. As a bonus, I get into a quick tip that was inspired by my early work with Audiobus – hope that you find it useful!
I know that there’s so many great ideas out there about apps and how to use them, and I want to share your ideas with the world! If you’ve got an app suggestion or a quick tip, send them my way – Submit your ideas by sending me a message .
The last part of the show features an interview with the fantastic iOS music maker Michael Wadlow. He initially started getting into music making through physical hardware when he was younger, but put things aside until he got an iPad a year ago. Since that time, he’s made some unbelievable progress, becoming a highly admired iOS musician on SoundCloud, getting signed by both Deception Records and Tainted Buddha Records, as well forming a major artistic partnership with guitarist Jack Morefield. Michael has put together some inspiring music, showing us exactly what can happen when you put these devices in the hands of someone with innate musicality.
Talking with Michael was a burst of creative energy – so much so that we recorded a quite long interview. I’ve split it up over two episode; we’ll listen to Part 1 today where Michael talks about his background in music and his entry into the iOS world. You can hear Part 2 in the upcoming episode number four, which you’ll hear in a while. To get things started, we take a listen to a collaboration that Michael put together with Jack Morefield, “Gossamer,” some truly beautiful stuff.
I hope that you enjoy this episode of the podcast . . . before you know it, we’ll be onto show #4! As always, the most important thing to me is that I create something useful that’s going to help the iOS music community. So, if you’ve got ideas, suggestions, or even compliments, send them my way! Thanks so much for listening, enjoy the show!
