Woow. Look at that background.
Wonder if that is their office or it is the pace he lives in.
Guess n-Track Studio is doing good.
They have in any case produced a series of tutorials that covers all aspects of the Android version of their DAW. Think that if anyone is looking for a Mobile DAW there is only two real options and that is n-Track and Audio Evolution Mobile. Both of them can use external sound cards and have all the basics covered when it comes to editing/mixing/effects etc. But the workflow differs pretty much and there is some basic other differences as well.
Both offers demo versions and recommend to test both as in the end it is a question personal preference.
So to see the series of tutorials follow the video posted below...
There has been some waiting for this since the development was at 95%.
As usual there is a lot of improvements and with a couple of them being a little bit leftfield.
The biggest so far is the sampler update which brings a lot of more functionality and possibilities to it. Just check out the video and as you can see it is possible to use effects modules directly in the sampler, with envelopes (amongst other things)!!!
There is supposed to come some more stuff that is not announced yet... suspect that it involves more Pixilang integration as there already is some ways to use Pixilang inside Sunvox for some cool things...
To test it on a PC/Mac/Linux go here (aso a list of all the new stuff):
This app is growing constantly and always with more useful additions.
This time dynamics is at the frontlines, making static rhythms disappear.
As seen in the picture above it is possible to access sliders underneath the step sequencer to control velocity, move each beat forwards in micro steps (that is just great) and finally make the beats fire differently for each pass of the sequencer.
It is fantastic additions to an already full featured app.
To read more about this update go here:
So this is not a big thing but thought that it could be interesting to share anyway as it is Halloween. Have been obsessing about the character Samara Morgan from the first american "The Ring" film since it got imprinted on my mind twelve years ago.
Liked it so much that have not seen it since, as it should live on untainted in my memory bank forever and be a constant source of inspiration.
In either case was working on some sounds the other day for a song called "Samaras Moon Box" and using the Android app "Flux" through some effects this came out and a lot of the sounds have the same character as Samaras voice.
So if you dare, load them up, take some mushrooms, turn of all the lights and whisper her name.
Then there is seven days to unload the samples unto someone else (as I am doing now...) or death will for certain occur!
A preview of what is to come by the same developer of the Lo-Fi noisy interesting Dragon drum machine. Here is what he says:
Mobile music app Fang Synth demo. Everything can be modified by tilting or shaking the device through accelerometer control. Contains a stepped arpeggiator with diatonic scale locking, wave shaping oscillators, resonant filter, and a multi fx (including formant filter, pitched delay, reverb.) Can do strange sonic textures or complex evolving arpeggios
Remixlive is being sold as a remix of already made loops, but is that really fun for anyone serious about music making?
Luckily it is also possible to do direct recording and load loops all made from scratch. What makes it attractive too is that it is made with performance in mind and as such can be used in live settings and jams.
Like that the effects comes with X-Y pads and not faders or similar.
So it can be a good thing to look into Remixlive if working a lot with samples.
Anyho this is not why this post is being made it was more to mention that it is more control over the sample editing with the latest update which makes things more interesting.
This version adds Waveform zoom, a new feature offering more control and improving the sample editor!
Display samples in full screen and edit them accurately:
- Edit start & end points to create a new loop.
- Adjust ADSR sample parameters to make them crispier or softer.
Reacatable will release a new drum machine by the 15th of November.
If this is something and there is an itch to try out right now go here:

Have tried a lot of the glitch apps with the thought of using it as material for videos.
The one that so far have been the best is Glitch! by Luca Grillo.
Most Glitch apps do not allow for direct video conversion and had to take a lot of photographs and later import into a video editor. There is a fair amount of glitch effects in the free version, but there is a video function in the paid version where it is possible to choose after recording which one you want to use.
It is a little bit of a lie to say that the end product is a video. What really happens it is that the app transforms the video into images and then recompiles them, effectively making more of an animation.
In either case it is excellent for anyone that wants to add a little bit extra to a music video for example. So for me the 3€ spent was a good investment and am having a lot of fun with it!
Yes must mention to that it is actively developed. In the two months it has been installed there has been two/three nice updates.
Photo editing app that allow you to quickly generate random and real glitch in your picture without using photoshop or computer!
Upload photos from camera or gallery, edit with multiple effect and filters.
Save your artwork or share it with everyone.
Become a digital artist, create real and completely random glitch, to add that "nerd" touch to your pictures!
★★★★★ Amazing app
★★★★★ Awesome updates
★★★★★ Sweet app. Keep up the great work
Imperfection creates uniqueness out of diversity.
By changing the paradigm, that which standardisation views as an error, to the free thinker becomes the unexpected source of a new beauty.

----- HOW TO USE -----
You can simply swipe several times the image with your finger in X and Y coordinates for generate errors in your picture.
• Touching the screen on the BOTTOM-LEFT you'll have your original picture
• Swiping on the TOP-RIGHT you'll increase number of errors
• Change resolution and image quality for generate stunning combination of glitch!
• Try different effects ( VHS scanlines, 3D, Window Lag, Pixel, Wave, Hacker, Triangol)
• Make Mp4 or GIF animations and share it via Whatsapp, Facebook or Instagram
• Hashtag #Glitch4ndroid

In several usages in information technology, the therm "glitch" is a systematic error, typically found in an electronic or computing device.
This bugs, usually keep devices from completing their main function properly
----- WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION -----
Just like doors of perception, glitches are everywhere and all around us, even if you can't perceive them:
lagged digital decoder signal, TV screens in metro, broken DVD players, bad mp3s or old and damaged SD cards.
Thanks to cyberpunk and sci-fi movies, this concept created and evolved in subcultures and music influences.
WHAT'S NEW💎 Increased video output resolution
💎 New WARP effect! ⚡ Totally revisited ⚡
🔧 Fix: mirror 3d in video
Fix: animation speed in output video
Fix: Image loading error
Fix: 3D wrong initial color
This app is made to work together with a midi controller that is based on the instrument called hang instrument. It seems to be a very nice midi controler but it costs a lot of money...
Luckily for us there is this app that is well made and have loads of virtual instruments inside that is laid out like a hang instrument. So it is of course tied into scales as there is not the full twelve notes. This is an advantage as it makes improvisation easy and the octave changes are easy to implement. Some effects are built in and recording as well.
The sounds are good and there is no ads and free!
Also like that there is midi out, so can be used to control hardware.
One thing to point out is that having this layout breaks the normal piano thinking and at least for me it makes me come up with a different type of playing rhythmically and melodically.
So for live recording very interesting. (Depending on device/latency)

is A little bit of time ago wrote about an app that took wifi signals and translated to music sequences.
Well looking around for some choir apps the other day stumbled across this one. It is the same idea but with a
much nicer execution and instead of grungy chiptune noises it using female voices.
It is for free and ad free and looks pretty nice.
Can not be used for too much music wise though, but it is fun to have installed like the other app to directly illustrate how saturated or clean our airwaves are...
It seems that Reactable have stopped supporting their online side of things where people could interchange "tables" and so forth. Plus that since they released their new app for iOS the Android app has not been updated. It is a pity as Reactable have been working pretty good on intermediate devices, and if someone is into cooperating or sharing their musical adventures, that is no more.
I wish I could ask them what is going on but as they have never answered me the 3-4 times I have written them since starting this website do not have the energy to write them again.
Just writing this if you have been thinking about getting the app to say that maybe there is no more support and there is no more social networking if you do.
Read that the next SunVox update is close and I am like a little child giggling knowing that my favorite toy will be arriving next week for my birthday.
Saw this video now and listening to crappy portable computer speakers can not hear any difference but just knowing that it speaks about the coming update makes me feel tingly and excited inside.
This is all pre fixed and there is not much to do except put the sounds to be triggered in different ways, but it sounds great and think that to kickstart or get some ideas for ambient works it functions just fine.

Member the good old days on Android when every second music app that came was a Theremin based app? And now there is a new one from the late 2016 that looks good (have not tried it as my Google Play is hooked up to Paypal and that account is empty at the moment Wink Wink...).
Some effects and other parameters to adjust.
The developer is also hold accountable for a web app called BlokDust.
This is a multitouch synth instrument. Play it by touching and swiping the screen, changing the waveforms and sliding the effects to create anything from traditional sci-fi theremin sounds to deep scuzzy soundscapes. Use the looper controls to record, loop and overdub layers. Then if you wish to save or share your recording, hit the download button to send your wav file to other compatible apps like Messages, Email, Dropbox etc.
The original Theremin went live in 2014 on the web at femurdesign.com/theremin. Over a million hits later and hundreds of requests for a record button, I have redesigned it. Now the Theremin is ready for you to experiment with.
-- SPECIFICATIONS --
• Record, loop and overdub options.
• Multitouch allows up to 8 tones to be played simultaneously with your fingers
• 3 sliders: delay, feedback and scuzz
• 4 waveforms: sine, square, triangle and saw
• No internet needed, works both online and offline
• Download the loop as a .wav file
• Loops can be shared with other apps like Mail, Message and more.
• Optimized for mobile, tablet and large screen

Gizmodo "Just mess around! Twiddle those faders! Swipe and click with reckless abandon! Turn the volume all the way up, give the dog a panic fit, and make your neighbours think the street's being invaded by giant cabbage people from planet Zok. Trust me, this will never get old.”
Dangerous Minds “New online theremin simulator kind of sounds cooler than the real thing. Check it out and annoy your co-workers.”
Mashable “Messing around with this virtual theremin is completely addicting”
