So this is weird... I was going to write about this the other day and the singer of Linkin Park killed himself. I guess I am older now as there is such a big itch to make bad jokes about the whole thing but I do feel bad for anyone affected by his suicide.
Linkin Park was the judges of the twelve finalists that have been taking place during twelve months and they found a winner as can be seen and heard in the videos.
It must be a strange bitter sweet victory for the winner...
Teoti Graphix have gone on Sample Pack rampage lately!
These last days he released around six more or so.
Most of them around a euro or so.
So if using Caustic take a look here:
here is the YouTube Playlist where it is possible to listen to them:
I want to thank Andy for bringing this to my attention and it must be good news for anyone using Studio One as their DAW. Being an official app from PreSonus they use the same setup as the DAW and they made it for free, it seems like a perfect controller if using Studio One.
PreSonus® Studio One® Remote is a free Android remote control app designed specifically for use with PreSonus Digital Audio Workstation Studio One 3 Artist* and Professional on Mac® and Windows® computers. It’s the perfect companion, both as a “second screen” app in a workstation setup or as a flexible mobile remote for recording, mixing and editing when away from the computer.
Studio One Remote is based on the PreSonus software applications framework and utilizes the UCNET protocol for network connectivity and remote control. This is the same technology that powers PreSonus remote control apps such as UC Surface, as well as the popular multitrack live recording software Capture™ (desktop) and Capture for iPad.
- Remote control of Studio One 3 transport and mix console
- Commands page for access to all Studio One factory and user commands and macros
- Control up to 28 plug-in parameters using Control Link
- PreSonus UCNET networking technology for ultra-fast connectivity
- Macro Control view for quick access to FX parameters
- Fast song navigation using scalable timeline, marker list and Arranger sections
- Control any Studio One system on the same network; control a single Studio One with multiple remote apps simultaneously
- Start Page with demo mode and integrated Quick Help
- Access multiple Cue Mixes with independent faders
- Access record modes, Pre-count and Metronome settings
- Remote control over critical PreSonus hardware functions (currently supported products: Studio 192-series USB 3.0 interfaces, Quantum Thunderbolt™ interfaces, StudioLive AI-series mixers, and StudioLive Series III mixers)
Compatible with Android devices running Lollipop 5.0 or later and a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 or higher. The Android device must be connected to the same wireless network as a Mac or Windows computer running Studio One 3 Professional.
* Studio One 3 Artist support requires the Studio One Remote add-on. Studio One add-ons are available at shop.presonus.com.

Nightradio the creator of SunVox and many nice apps have been using them to create these albums and now they are all for free.
To get them go here:
Palmsounds have been around for a long time writing about mobile music gear and apps.
Now he is going to split up and write about mobile news on CDM (Create Digital Music) which is another great site regarding electronic music and gear. I congratulate both of them on the decision.
Here is what is said on Palmsounds website:
If you’ve seen this post at CDM today, you may be wondering what’s happening. So I think I should explain really. As you might remember, this year saw PalmSounds hit the ripe old age of 11 years, which is a long time in anyone’s book. Right from almost the very beginning of that journey Peter Kirn was really supportive, and from there we’ve stayed in touch and on occasion I’ve written for CDM.
As of now PalmSounds is moving over to CDM, bringing mobile music and app news to an already great site. You’ll be able to find everything you’d normally expect at PalmSounds at CDM, right here, and of course, if you’re not a CDM reader already you’ll find a whole lot more to read there.
Of course you might be wondering what will happen over here. That would be a good question. To answer that you have to remember that PalmSounds started as my personal discussion on mobile music. It wasn’t really a news site at all, but that’s what it became. Now that I’m moving that part of PalmSounds to CDM, this site will really go back to its roots. It’ll be more about what I’m doing personally with my own mobile music rather than acting as a news site.
So please join me over at CDM from today for everything you’ve seen at PalmSounds and a bright new chapter for CDM too.
Mazesoft Soniface is something that I mentioned sometime ago and not really paying too much attention to it as to me it felt that it was too much flash and not too much substance.
Later installing it and starting to try it out it was pretty obvious that it is much deeper than eyecandy.
The eyecandy can get pretty intense and that is no way all there is as the sounds that you can coax out of it is great as well. But the big strength is not only the sound as it is the sequencers that you set up and manipulate that is important and fun.
It takes some time to get into it and I would say that a bigger screen is not a bad idea but tthink that there is a lot of people that will enjoy this and am curious what will be made using this app.
All in all on Android it Is the most exciting and different app to come out since Oscilab.
So big congratulations to have won the AppArtAward! You deserve it.
This is a synthesizer that have been out on iOS earlier but have now made the transition to Android as well.
Retronyms present Phase84 for Android, a next generation phase distortion synthesizer. Phase84 fuses gritty digital sounds with traditional analog punch. 🎹
Phase84 is an extremely capable synthesizer and features over 110 presets, containing all sorts of basses, leads, pads, bell tones, sweeps, atmospheric sounds, pseudo-realistic tones, and more. Experienced synth tweakers will be thrilled at the sheer variety of unique sounds that can be produced with this incredibly versatile synth, as well as musicians exploring Phase84 for the first time. Phase84 takes the basic phase distortion technique and supercharges it.
The origins of Phase84 began in the 80s. This form of waveshaping synthesis has its roots in Casio’s brilliant CZ line of digital synthesizers during that decade. It is designed to have the warmth of a subtractive (analog) synthesizer, yet be capable of the squelchy tones and sharp attacks of an FM synth. With Phase84, users can customize their waveforms much more than on the original Casio CZs.
Phase84 in particular can create warm pads, glitchy sounds, dirty basses, filthy sweeps, screaming leads, and anything in-between. For those familiar with the typical Moog-like synthesis, think of the "shaper" as being synonymous with "brightness" or "filter cutoff”. An organic semi-randomized unison mode helps it produce killer pads. The oscillators can be FM’d together for even more complex and rough tones, or phased using pulse-width modulation. Phase84 also has live performance features and uniquely customizable gate for maximum funkitude!
- More than 100 presets
- USB MIDI controller support
- Low-latency audio on both Samsung and non-Samsung devices
- Advanced Keyboard section
- Expressive Perform Mode with Groove Gate
- Precision Knob mode
- Preset saving in Standalone Mode
- Phat, naturalistic unison feature for super thick pads and sweeps
- Oscillator Section: 9 Params, 2 General-Purpose Oscillators, 1 Formant Oscillator
- Mix Section: 8 Params including Delay Amount and Pulse Width
- Envelope Section: Amplitude and Shaper Envelopes; fully visualized and interactive ADSR plus special Fade Param
- Delay/Filter Section: Stereo delay with loss modeling and a punchy overdriven analog-style filter
- 3 LFOs: More flexible than your average LFO, this has 4 waveforms, optional delay and repeat count, and can go into the audible frequency range
Phase84 is brought to you by Retronyms, pioneers of music production, performance, and expression on multitouch platforms. Retronyms is dedicated to making powerful tools that enable people to create, share, and engage through music and technology.
Need help? We’ll answer any question you have. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 😊
Phase84 is now available across all Android devices supporting either OpenSL or Samsung Pro Audio SDK! Also, users may now save their presets outside of Soundcamp.
