Messing around with littleBits MIDI bit

I’ve been playing around with my new littleBits MIDI bit. It’s pretty easy to get to grips with. It handles USB MIDI and 5 pin MIDI too, which is very handy. It all worked very well actually. I tested it out using Genome MIDI Sequencer on my iPad. No problems at all.

I got it to hopefully make my littleBits collection a bit more useful. I think that it will. The down side is that it appears that one of the oscillators in my kit appears to have stopped working. Which is disappointing. I doubt that there’s anyway to fix it sadly. I guess I’ll just have to get a new one.

Finished a new track with NanoStudio

I’ve been a big fan of NanoStudio since it first launched, but I’ve rarely finished anything that I’ve started with it. Today I’ve finished a piece that I began ages ago. It’s an old track that I’ve re-worked and I’m really pleased with it.

AudioShare is an awesome swiss army knife of mobile audio. I used it here to record the track in so I could then move it into …

Which made it sound even better, or at least that’s what I think. The final track will be up on SoundCloud later.

Back at the Liberty Festival with SoundLab

So this is the second year I’ve been at the Liberty Festival with SoundLab. This year was a bit damp and wet, but fun nevertheless. We still had a lot of people come along and play and enjoy themselves, so it was a good day all in all. I’m glad that I was able to be a part of it.

Even though it was wet we had a steady stream of people wanting to try out new ways to make music, and experiment.

I’ve been a fan of this music app for years now, and I found this photo that I’d taken of it running on three different devices simultaneously. I still use it a lot for making tracks on my iPhone, so I must get back to using it on Windows Mobile soon. It’ll be interesting to see how different it is or isn’t.
