UNTIL THE DUST SETTLES

Traveling With Electronics : Until The Dust Settles

 

.....automatic updates off 

 

 

If you are using the iOS platform in any kind of professional audio context then you already know this to be true and right now as IAA (inter-app-audio) is being phased out it is time to protect the apps that you rely on from being rendered useless as the parade of abandonment marches forward once again.....here's the latest :  PSA: Don't update to iOS 12.4 if you use apps in AB output or IAA apps that use the mic.

with OS 12.4 already causing problems with IAA and OS 13 about to drop, not to mention the introduction of the new iPadOS, you might want to seriously consider freezing an iPad on 12.3.1 until the dust settles.....I'm just sayin' 

 

On to the more positive information :

DEMO/REVIEW OF MINILOGUE XD

 

I PLAY IN A VIDEO GAME ARCADE (with a portrait of pee wee herman behind me)

 

My good friend Mark Mosher who runs the Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meet-up

asked us to embrace “arcade sounds” in our mini-sets. 
I captured a 4 minute "video game sounds trivia recording" that
covered 20 classic game sounds into “Audio Stretch” on my iPad.
I scrubbed around that file for 12 minutes recording into “Audio Share”.
I cut that recording into 6 two minute files and opened them in “Samplr”.
My set was about improvising with those files.
