Addictive Pro Synth is out!

I am a bit behind the times but there is a new iPad synth on the scene and it is a monster addition to a steadily growing options for making music with your iPad!

Addictive Pro is still currently on a 40% off introductory price – I have no idea how long that will last and I AM behind in posting here as I am in the middle of Marching Season!

Addictive Pro is by VirSyn who is no stranger to the mobile music making scene! With this release they add an app that strengthens their foothold for anyone making music these days. 

Here is an idea of what you get – Adictive Pro is a synth that takes hybrid synthesis and gives you many different ways in which to shape and control the complex sounds. There is a four part polyrhythm Arpeggiator included inside of the synth which should excite an music educator – I mean come on! Polyrhythms? Easy access to controls for the modulation, an easy to understand arpeggiator section and a stellar FX section (7 studio standard effects available concurrently!) all gives you great control over the synthesis (Virtual Analog, FM and Ringmodulation)

The app supports CoreMIDI compatible keyboards, Virtual MIDI, AudioBus and InterApp Audio as well. Maybe they will even work on creating an audio unit component to this synth (not holding my breath on that one though)

Here is a demo….

MET Podcast News

As Chris posted on his site –

“We have some good news about the ME&T Podcast…we have already overwhelmed the free hosting features of Podomatic.  As a result, we’re looking for a service that can handle the storage and bandwidth of our podcast.

The answer is SoundCloud Pro Unlimited, which is $135 a year (this represents a discount over monthly billing).  We will be moving all of our existing material to SoundCloud and adding new episodes there in the future.  If you are following on iTunes, hopefully the feed will update with the new RSS feed.

Paul and I are wondering if there is a music education company out there that would be willing to sponsor the hosting fees for SoundCloud Pro for the podcast.  In exchange, we would be happy to read an advertisement for a YEAR for that company during the “break” that we have built into our podcasts.  Please send us an e-mail if you are a company that would be willing to sponsor our Podcast!


Have you missed the Podcast?”

We are almost ready to share our 3rd MET Podcast Episode with you – This time we have a wonderful interview with another great music company that focuses on music education!

MET Podcast Episode 2 featuring PreSonus is out!

Chris and I have had a great time putting together this second episode of The Music Education and Technology Podcast. As a guest we had Micah Blouin from PreSonus as a guest. It was wonderful to talk to Micah and get information on the new updates that have taken Notion to version 6 and Studio One to version 3! We also talk about solutions that PreSonus have to make our jobs as music educators easier. 

In the first half of the Podcast we talk about a whole bunch of technology that pertains to music educators! So many things to discuss as these past couple of weeks have been very active!

Auria Pro is on 50%off sale!

There are a couple of main DAW apps for iPad that are just as full fledged as you could hope for. In fact, a couple of them exceed most people’s expectations! Auria Pro is one of those apps! Actually, when it was first announced people said the announcement was a fake because it sounds too good to be true. 

Well Auria has just kept on getting better. 

It is currently on a nice sale which puts this fully in the “buy now” category. 

Buy It Now! ( just make sure you read the system requirements because those are important to understand. )
