App revisit: Noise IO Pro Synth

Noise IO Pro is arguably the first synth for the iPhone/Touch. It’s still pretty amazing to this day. Amidio haven’t done anything with it for a long time, although I thought there was a suggestion that they were going to issue an HD version or an update of some kind. Still, it’s worth remembering this app as a real groundbreaking event in mobile music history.

Trying out Netflix

I decided to check out Netflix to see if it was worth the £5.99 a month that they charge. So I’ve started out my trial today. My first look through showed that a load of things that I’m interested in they just don’t have. So that’s not a good start, but they do have a few things that I’ve been meaning to see or catch up with, so I’ll try it out for a while and see how it goes.

One thing I’ve noticed is that the picture quality isn’t always wonderful and the service cuts out on a regular basis.

Happy Record Store day

Great to see that this is being kept alive. I have very fond memories of time spent searching around in record stores for something unique and interesting. Especially second hand stores like the sadly missed Beanos which used to be in Surrey Street.

I hope that events like this keep people visiting record stores, not just on a day like today, but far more often.
