Here is a initiative worth participating in that is worth participating in.
nanoloop long-form minimalism
Compilation submissions are now open!
Let's make some long nanoloop tracks!
This is a compilation for those who either can't write tracks short enough to be considered for the usual chiptune compilations, or for those who usually write short tracks and want to experiment a little. Basically anyone who wants to write long-form tracks :D
I've made these a little more strict than I first intended, but consider it a challenge to get creative.
- Any version of Nanoloop is allowed (including multiple copies of same/different versions). This includes the iOS/Android versions, but to even the playing field, please avoid using external samples.
- MINIMUM length of 10 minutes. No maximum.
- ANY genre is fine, but a minimalist/repetitive version of chosen genre is encouraged.
- Submitted tracks must have some consistency throughout the compostion. Tracks with multiple sections are great, but try to avoid a "megamix" of clearly very different pieces. This isn't a collection of EPs.
- NO external effects or sound generators, with the exception of using EQ/compression. Please note that I may get these tracks lightly mastered/limited just to get volume levels consistent.
- External clock signals are permitted, ONLY to control speed of sequencer.
- Editing after recording is permitted.
- Collaborations are permitted and encouraged.
DEADLINE AND SUBMISSIONS
I'd like to get this closed by 1st October 2017.
Upload your submission to Dropbox, Google Drive, your own hosting, or similar, along with a text file containing your artist name, track title, and any additional notes including the version(s) of nanoloop used. Feel free to get as academic or wanky as you like :D
I'll aim for a mid-October or early November release, depending on how long it takes me to get artwork together and master it.
To submit tracks go here:

This is an interview with the guys performing using four phones and Roli's noise app.

Wrote about this recently and it is still in Beta at this moment but think it will be out soon.
So this is exciting as this means playing live with Android will be less annoying for real musicians and for anyone not depending on sequencers for their music making.
Also as there already have been a transition of iOS apps getting in on the Android market this will probably be meaning that there will be a lots more coming.
Hopefully with this new audio engine there also will be someone making app interconnectivity?
There is two developers that already have adopted their apps for low latency.
Ahh can you guess the first one?
Of course the developer of G-Stomper that always works on keeping his apps to the highest standard and then there is the developer of Mikrowave/Kosm that is keeping his apps relevant.

Interesting new app for people that wants to jam over many devices but also include hardware into the mix! It is made by the developer of G-Stomper Studio (and family) that have Ableton Link built in already (Ableton live is not required for Ableton Link enabled apps).
Lately there has been more and more apps available with Ableton Link the latest one being brought to my attention is Beatonal.
The app is still in Beta but the developer is searching for more Beta testers until it gets fully released.
Last but not least:
Early BETA testers can grab it for free until 22nd of August 2017.

I did buy this on discount and there is some positive things that makes it worth having.
There is also a lot of things that are not so good (specially for the full price).
Mainly the positive things are that there is many good sounds that gets modulated by using the X-Y pad. As it can be set to scale and tempo it is nice to record into a DAW for example and come up with things that can be hard to come up with in other ways.
Also there is the possibility to import your own loops.
It is fun to play with but can probably become boring fast after some days/hours as the sounds are a little bit limited and the sequencer is just for five looped instruments/parts that can not be arranged more than turning them on and off. So to use it for longer arrangements it needs help like said before.
The sounds are very EDM oriented and there is not easy to find oddness and weirdness to spill out of it. It would be excellent to have the interface of Kaosillator for some more glitchy/weird sounds and rhythms...
Anyway I do not regret getting it as it has already led me to add some nice details in some things recorded.
