Bolasol updates Werkbench music app for iPad to v1.03

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 19, 2012 - comment 1 comment

Bolasol has updated its Werkbench steampunk beatbox music app for iPad to version 1.03.

WerkBench is a new kind of beatbox that is part loop pedal, part drum machine, and 100% beat-making magic. It’s powerful, easy to use, and there is nothing else like it. Get ready to be inspired!

WerkBench’s unique power comes from two live-sampling step sequencers. Each step in the sequence holds its own sample that can be recorded and manipulated in real-time.

You’ll be making beats and cool rhythms in seconds… and all of the sounds will be unique to you!


Workbench lets you turn the sounds of your world into music.

Changes in Werkbench v1.03

  • Added user-definable scales for the pitch knobs in fancy controls.
  • Big improvements to audio quality! PItches and echoes are now much more sublime.
  • Removed some click and snaps.

Workbench for iPad is available to purchase for $6.99 USD.

Peter wrote me a while back with some pictures of his latest project, a Jules Verne inspired analog synthesizer with etched brass control panels.

Peter Winterhill‘s synth is designed to be modular and re-configurable, so Peter was looking for a process that could be repeated in-house at any time in the future should he wish to add or change modules.
He used the electrolytic etching process Jake used for the Moleskine journals, but he’s made some really clever plate holders instead of Jake’s duct tape. SPWS has a little Q&A with Peter.

# Mark Griffiths Music: Wiard 300 Samples – Having got the Wiard 300 series up and running, I decided to take a quick canter through some simple patches and a few of the patch ideas on the Wiard site.

# ‘Oldest’ computer music unveiled – 1951 – A scratchy recording of Baa Baa Black Sheep and a truncated version of In the Mood are thought to be the oldest known recordings of computer generated music.

# BoxBeat | Karl D.D. Willis – a prototype toy that turns the surface of your desk into a beat making instrument. It uses contact microphones to detect different sounds from the desk surface, and a simple software patch to trigger audio samples.

# Spinalcat – A five month-long (graduate thesis) project concentrated on the development of a hardware/software interface for controlling musical events on a computer using a set of disk-jockey turntables and paper "records" that can be printed or drawn.

# Moving Music: 10 Ways for a Music Geek to Move House – Dave Dri shares some of tips he found useful in his own recent moving.
