have not tried this but it is a different approach and for free and no publicity!
This app uses a self-consistent method to translate amino acid sequences into audible sound. The sonification method uses the normal mode vibrations of the amino acid building blocks of proteins to compute an audible representation of each of the 20 natural amino acids, which is fully defined by the overlay of its respective natural vibrations. The vibrational frequencies are transposed to the audible spectrum following the musical concept of transpositional equivalence, playing or writing music in a way that makes it sound higher or lower in pitch while retaining the relationships between tones or chords played. This transposition method ensures that the relative values of the vibrational frequencies within each amino acid and amongst different amino acids are retained.
The characteristic frequency spectrum and sound associated with each of the amino acids represents a type of musical scale that consists of 20 unique tones, the “amino acid scale”. To create a playable instrument, each tone associated with the amino acids is assigned to a specific key on the screen of your phone, which can be played. The app allows users to record sequences that were played, edit them, and share them for further processing (e.g. creating synthetic proteins based on the music composed, or predicting the folded structure of a sequence created through music).
The approach of creating audio representations of protein sequences offers a new avenue for understanding sequence patterns, variations, and mutations, and offers an outreach mechanism to explain the significance of protein sequences. The method reported here also offers insight into the effect of mutations through sound.

Lately been looking for a travel guitarso this is interesting as it is small and light weight and can be used as a midi controller... But for around 360 monies it is not cheap.
Also been curious to control hardware/softwareand would love to find a way to play synthesizers with guitar so looked this up.
Read one review and it seems that it does not allow for bending etc when playing synthesizers and do not know how well it works with the app plus weird strings.
SO maybe this post is a little bit redundant but in either case putting it out as it could be worthwhile to test it out if possible and having the monies.
There is some similar news that should be posted that is more interesting if you like to make synthesizer sounds with guitar and do not care about the midi part... (tomorrow?)
With the neatly designed Jammy Guitar mobile app, you will mix practice and pleasure in the most fun and effortless way.
Shape your unique sound by choosing your guitar type and applying FX pedals to it. Explore a variety of guitar tunings available at a single tap.
Train your sense of rhythm playing to an easily adjustable metronome. Jam along to 20 live recorded full-band backing tracks — it's like having a whole band in your phone!
Don't know how to jam? No worries! Each backtrack is accompanied by a set of appropriate notes that you can combine into solos so even a beginner will be able to drop some cool licks! The best thing is that you can use most of those features with your ordinary guitar as well as with Jammy.
Yapps this is a good read for developers and want to be developers...

Sharing this as the experiment is exciting and having a couple of reverse delays there is a lot of possibilities to explore... Unfotuntaley it is a little bit hard to do this directly on Android.
Annoying person but he has a lot of interesting videos on circuit bending etc.
Like the "Will it pedal" series where he takes cheap effects and make them into pedals. One thing seeing the other day that I liked was he made a lofi distortion pedal from a cheap hearing aid...

So for this holy day of 808 Samples From Mars have let his 808 pack for free for some days. Normally 39 Monies and well worth a download as it is comprehensive.
Need to give away your email and register but it was painless.
Here is what is said from the main man:
Happy 8/08 day ! Last year we celebrated this holy holiday by re-building the 808 From Mars from the ground up. And this year, we're celebrating by giving it away for free !
I know, I know - you probably already have 808 samples. But. We built this library with one of the best sounding 808s I've ever heard. It's been multi-sampled through an API console, cleanly and with tons of different hardware processing.
Anyways, decide for yourself :)

Having this as a beta and loving it, am happy to say that the developer is back into getting it out for Android after a break. He did a VST/AU version and have spent all his time to get that in order but now that is done it is time to work on the Android version again.
Spoke about it before and it is one of the apps that brings something new to the table.
Simple but yet deep enough to take it somewhere deep.
Actually it is one of those apps that feels a little bit like cheating, creating great music without making much effort.
Still it is unique and as it works with samples it is up to the creator to take it farther...
And it can also be connected to midi!
It comes with two tracks using the same controls and seperate sequencers.
The video below is a new one and may give the impression that it is only good for soundscapes, and it is true that it is definitively easy to create intriguing soundscapes but there is a lot of other possibilities and there is a bunch of other videos as well showing off what can be done.
Highly recommended and hope that it does not take too much time more before officially released for Android users!
Seeing the video below and hearing something that small and battery powered that sounded more or less good was thinking that it could be interesting for some people here.
There is a Android app that gives a lot of control over a lot of parameters and there is drum loops built in as well.
Have been thinking that it would be good to have a small battery powered amp for some time as there is chance that will take my guitar to the street one day when economic pressure become to severe...
The price is a little bit steep at a around a hundred monies and there is better options for small practice amps specially second hand for that price but it is probably hard to find something this portable with this sound.

The record label started releasing Caustic produced tracks only but is now also accepting tracks made otherwise as well. It is not really my cup of tea being very dance oriented pop styleelees but have kept an eye open as the tracks have always been well produced and being Caustic centered.
How they are as a record company is not known to me but should be interesting for anyone producing dance music to look into?
