  • Export via built in http server. Download your patches, songs and to your PC or upload new ones to your iPhone, all over Wifi.
  • UI Additions – Added a handy trigger button to the edit page, so you can hear the sound you are editing without having to create a pattern sequence. Also added arrows on all sliders for easy value increment / decrement.
  • Init button – Now it’s even easier to start from a clean slate.

bleep!BOX is available from the iTunes App Store for $9.99 USD. A free bleep!BOX Player version is available to allow users to do everything they can do in bleep!BOX, except for the ability to save.

WaveMachine Labs iGOG

WaveMachine Labs has released iGOG, a drum machine app for the Apple iPhone / iPod Touch.

iGOG uses WaveMachine Labs own patent-pending VelAUcity technology to accurately measure how hard the pads are hit and dynamically respond. iGOG’s drum sounds are based on Drumagog — it plays standard Drumagog files, providing up to 384 multisamples per drum. iGOG also features a mic trigger mode which works like Drumagog, allowing you to trigger drum sounds using the iPhone’s built-in mic. Just tap your desk and iGOG turns it into a drumkit.

iGOG for iPhone features

  • VelAUcity – iGOG’s proprietary VelAUcity technology does the unthinkable and turns the iPhone’s screen into touch sensitive drum pads. Play loud, play soft, or play a full-blown crescendo on a crash cymbal, iGOG will capture every nuance of your performance. Just plug in your headphones and start playing. NOTE: VelAUcity is only available on iPhone devices. if you’re using an iPod Touch, VelAUcity is disabled.
  • Multi Samples – iGOG uses Drumagog’s powerful playback engine to create life-like drum sounds. Each drum pad can contain up to several hundred samples, each recorded at various dynamic levels. Tap the snare pad gently and iGOG responds with a softly played snare.
  • Sequencer – iGOG’s sequencer allows you to record midi sequences, which can be played back either within iGOG or exported to your computer. iGOG can also import standard midi files.
  • File Management – iGOG features a Mixdown mode, which creates a .wav file of the sequence you’ve recorded. File Transfer allows you to move files back and forth from iGOG and your computer. iGOG allows you to record drum parts in perfect sync to an mp3 file.
  • Mic Trigger Mode – In this mode, you can play drums simply by striking other objects (a table, your knee, etc.).
  • Multi-Positional Pads – iGOG’s Multi-Positional Pads allow hi-hats and cymbals to shine. Alternate between open hats, closed hats, or even hit a semi-open hi-hat. Play the ride cymbal and work your way from the edge to the bell, iGOG will capture every nuance.
  • Additional Kits – iGOG features a Kit Store which allows you to purchase additional kits.

iGOG is available for purchase from the iTunes App Store for $4.99 USD.

Lucky Frame Mujik

Lucky Frame has announced the release of Mujik, an iPhone application for making music in a fun, accessible, and intuitive way.

Mujik uses a revolutionary graphical approach that invites players to explore world of sound.

The simple and charming interface allows the user to make their own personalised music quickly and easily. By picking books off a shelf, flipping them open, and chasing the dust mites across the page the music becomes your own – or just float away on a sonic balloon!

Lucky Frame is an Edinburgh-based company that received critical acclaim with the Wii LoopMachine, creative music software for the Wii remote, which was featured on BBC Dragons’ Den, as well as magazines, newspapers, and television programs around the world.

The same approach that made the LoopMachine special has been applied to Mujik. Lucky Frame founder Yann Seznec says “Most music software is very intimidating and hard to use – we believe that doesn’t have to be the case! We make fun tools that anyone can use to make their own music. Mujik is unlike anything our there – it’s adorable, engaging, and musical. It encourages you to explore and discover the features and quirks. It’s not rocket science, it’s just fun.”

Lucky Frame has been supported by the British Council, where Yann was a finalist for the UK Young Music Entrepreneur Award, NESTA, which awarded Yann a Starter for 6 award, Edinburgh Pre-Incubator Scheme (EPIS) at the University of Edinburgh, and Scottish Institute for Enterprise.

Mujik is available through the iTunes store, and will be free for a limited time.
