Posting this video in anticipation for the interview with the man himself that will be posted on Monday-
Stay tuned and dont F####ng miss the interview!!!
By the way the video starts going Supreme Mpa application by 3 1/2 minutes.
Children of the night maybe here you can find dark musical caresses in any sound...
Well forgive for posting about Paulstretch here
but as an excuse Nanoloop was used as example.
Paulstretch have been out now for about three years and is one of those amazing softwares that is maybe made more amazing as it is for free.
If you never heard of it before or never tried it it is something that should be on your computer as it works really good and can do things that no other software that I know about can do-
It can stretch audio like nothing else-
it can stretch a second to lifetimes of listening!
It comes with a fair amount of different parameters to play with
even functions for binaural beats.
It got some attention some years ago when somebody took a Justin Bieber song
and stretched it out for an ambient half hour excursion-
now there is a crazy amounts of videos/music being Paulstretched-
here is one that caught my attention-
Personally really like to stretch out string quartets-
as strings are really nice for stretching as is choirs...
Also prepared some samples using a 12 second piece composed
and totally unmixed on Nanoloop,
then stretching it to 20 seconds- one minute- thirty minutes.
Remember all of this is unmixed and if you just apply a bit of mixing you have something really nice.
Almost couldn't resist to at least cut out some bottom end but was thinking it is nicer to hear everything unprocessed and you get the idea of where you can go from here.
So now if you are in hurry to release a lot of music for a horror movie... fret no more!

Heres a link to an interesting interview regarding one of the bigger companies future plans for Android-
As have been suspected for some time now there seems to be
more and more interest from companies developing for ios to break into the Android market-
and as comes up in the interview it is just a matter of a little bit more time.
Fruity Loops have been working on Android App for a long time and one of the bigger companies already made it this year- Irig.
Will be an exciting year (and a little bit sad).
Thanks Palm Sounds for posting the interview.
Some performance enhancements and one new "scene" for finger drumming.

Felt before that ReLoop looked interesting but was limited
unless your loops were in tune and prepared it was hard to start to have fun,
now that is over as this new updates makes it into something really useful when it comes to loop based music production.
As of now when you load the loop into the timeline it will adjust to the bpm
without going up and down in pitch and of course now you can tune your loops that is already there in the timeline without affecting the length of the loop
and single note samples in the same timeline can be tuned keeping their length making it usable for building melodies...
and of course the pitch will stay the same lengthening or shortening the loops.
Well these changes with recordable automation and effects makes it into something that is enough to really create some original music without well adjusted loops...
One word of warning though it wont load older projects without funking up the loops so it is a good idea to save the loops you have been working on as audio before upgrading.
Also the audio engine now being improved and with the new functions you are going to need a stronger phone- recommended at least 800 mhz so if it was working on your phone before be aware if it is under 800 mhz before upgrading.
Finally words from the developer-
Now ReLoop is what I always meant it to be -
a mobile version of ACID by Sony (originally by Sonic Foundry).
It is good to see this latest video from Solar Lune just to get an idea how you could approach song making in Sunvox.
You tube link:
Link to The Sunvox file of the song:
It could be just what you need to push you to the next level if you want to improve your singing or instruments where the tuning are not fixed, or just as ear training...
Yeah my singing could definitively be more in tune!
Was going to post one thing related with Nanoloop but dont have time to finish it, so here is instead for your viewing pleasure... A cool live mix made using Nanoloop Courtesy of Dr Squ.
So here is the latest creation of Gilzad to help you with your mixing/mastering efforts...
So here is an deeper explanation that you can read written by Mr Gilzad himself-
A Compressor with a lookahead feature is able to duck the sound earlier than a triggering peak appears. You get virtually an attack time that goes below zero. This is done by delaying the signal that shall be compressed and by sidechaining the compressor with the same, but undelayed, signal. The later a signal arrives at the compressor's normal input, the earlier it will be compressed by its undelayed copy on the sidechain-input. One thing, that we could not do in SunVox, becomes possible that way: Hard Limiting.
Here's how a mastered output looks like with a bunch of Exciters, Multiband Compressors and final Compressors. As you can see, peaks still get through, although we've entered the stage of hypercompression already:
But if we exchange the last master compressor by a Lookahead Compressor, we get a boosted volume and all the peaks are limited:
What is it good for?
The example file
The example file shows what exactly the Lookahead Compressor consists of and how it's built. You'll see an Amplifier that is connected to a compressor and to an Echo module. And you'll see that the Echo module is connected to the Compressor, too.
What is happening
The Amplifier feeds the Compressor's sidechianing-input. So there's no latency between the Amplifier (labeled 'Input') and the Compressor's sidechaining input. Furthermore the same Amplifier is attached to an Echo module (labeled 'Lookahead') and this Echo module is attached to the Compressor's normal input. The Echo module is used to add latency. So between the Amplifier and the Compressor's normal input, there is some latency. In this example I've set it to 2 ms as I found it works best for hard limiting. Now, whenever a peak from the Compressor's sidechaining-input exceeds its threshold, the delayed signal will be attenuated. As an example, a bassdrum reaches the sidechaining-input first and 2 ms later it will arrive at the compressor's normal input. This way the normal input will be ducked/attenuated earlier. That is by the time the peak arrived at the sidechining-input. That's looking ahead. The compressor knew what was gonna happen before it actually happened.
The demo file
This time the bypass feature is in the demo file, where you can simply unmute the "COMPARE" DSP. Doing this, you'll exchange the Lookahead Compressor by a usual Compressor. You'll notice how the usual Compressor sounds quieter and still its peaks lead SunVox's master output into clipping. Muting the "COMPARE" DSP again, you'll see how a song (well, just a pattern) is being played back together with a complete mastering chain at full loudness. If you feel like, render out the song and see how a maximized waveform appears in your audio editor.
The SunSynth module
The SunSynth module offers all the controls of a usual Compressor plus one for the lookahead feature. Since the inner compressor's side-chaining input is occupied now, it won't be available for anything else anymore (and Metamodules don't route different inputs through anyway). You might notice that these hard limiting configurations have a couple of drawbacks, too. One is the added latency. Due to some buffering the native Compressor adds some latency of 1 ms already (totally usual), but adding the lookahead feature will cost even more latency. That's because the DSP can't look into the future, it'll only buffer the sound a bit longer and compare to tha past. Another drawback is, when you hear clicks and little distortions here and there, which is just a natural case. If you did this with the Maximizer in Renoise, you'd hear similar issues and the Fast Lookahead Limiter by Steve Harris will also act like that, if you push it too hard. In such cases you have to use the Compressor carefully. Luckily we are able to change the attack an release time here. One of my tricks is to compress dull parts with soft parameters and bright parts with hard parameters. By automating the Compressor through the timeline. The idea is, that you won't hear the clipping artifacts in bright moments anyway.
Thanks for reading and downloading.

Pixilang a programming language that is used for example in creating the applications Pixitracker/Pixitracker 1 Bit, Pixelwave and Spectrumgen am not sure but it is a big possibility that is is also used for Pixivisor...
Anyway even though slowly trying to learn how to program a little bit (very slowly).
Must admit that Pixilang flys high and out of reach for me but it does comes with some already made goodies when it comes to audio and image manipulation
and if you now how or understand how these things work
you can create all kinds of fun things...
Anyway here is a list of the new features and it looks very interesting:
This is a cool workflow video,
with the bonus of the guy rapping to the finished beat in the last part.
Rapping in Russian so have no idea what he is saying... but he's good!
This is kind of nice as you can see how you can use this app.
The second video is with bad sound but couldn't resist as his ultra cool mother
sweeps by in the background.
Finally developers can correct and fight those pesky irritating hurtful comments
and sleep at night.
It is really cool as it will clarify things and lead to communication
and hopefully better applications!
In the beginning it will be the applications with the "top developer badge",
but hopefully soon it will be regarding all the applications.
now I am off too drive all the developers CRAZZZZYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!
One of the best of the guitar Chord applications,
It is pretty complete in anything related to Chords
with all kinds of settings for tuning other string instruments etc etc,
it also manages to pack in a good tuner better than any of the free tuners
that have occupied space on my telephone-
always ended up using "Gstrings" which is excellent but that is also all it does-
Tuning that is.
With this free gem you get so much more like ear training,
a really good metronome, a controllable frequency generator... and more.
You can tell that the developer have put in a lot of thought in everything
that he included in this application, the only thing it doesn't have
that the application "Chord" (that I use) have is the scales function,
but then again it does have other functions that you couldn't find on "Chord"
and remember as it has so many other functions it is kind of recommendable to install this free application if you are any kind of instrumentalist.
Especially if you are any kind of string player...
Smart chords & tools
