Waxing Wave Chordopia v1.1 iOS Waxing Wave Chordopia v1.1 iOS
Chordopia is a chord finder app for iPhone and iPod Touch — a veritable cornucopia of chord voicings for the guitar, ukulele, and mandolin.


Highlights

It works both both ways! You can enter a chord name and Chordopia will show you chord diagrams for different voicings of that chord, often hundreds of them. Or you can go the other way by dragging the dots in the chord diagram to new positions, and it will show you what the new chord is called.
Sound — Chordopia not only shows you the chord diagram for each voicing, but also lets you hear how it will sound.
Custom tunings are fully supported.
Chordopia is not a fixed collection of predefined chord diagrams — it works by searching through every possible combinations of finger positions on your instrument to find the ones that produce the chord you want, all in a fraction of a second. It then shows you the best ones first, based on how easy it thinks they will be to play and how good it thinks they will sound.
Chordopia knows 50 chord types for each of the 12 root notes for a total of 600 chords, not counting variants with an out-of-chord alternate bass. The number of voicings varies by chord, instrument and tuning; for example, for a guitar in standard tuning, there are more than 100,000 distinct voicings to discover.

Compatibility:

Requires iOS 5.1.1 or later.
Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

What's New:

New predefined guitar tunings: Open G and DADGAD

Voicings using fret 12 and higher are now shown, when the "number of frets" setting permits

Virtual DJ Studio 2015 7.2.01 Virtual DJ Studio 2015 7.2.01
Soft / Mobile Applications 26-09-2015
Virtual DJ Studio in an easy to use application that gives you a mixer-board interface in which you can practice karaoke. Virtual DJ Studio (VDJ) is an MP3 Mixer for live DJ performances. VDJ also contains a full 10-band Graphic Equalizer, full support for Audio Plugins, a Spectrum Analyzer, and many more tools for DJs.

Feature-Filled DJ & Karaoke Software
Virtual DJ Studio is not like all of the other DJ programs out there. While other programs limit you to two players with a Cross-Fader, Virtual DJ Studio provides you with an entire studio.

Virtual DJ Studio gives you a mixer-board interface. Each line offers things you would expect from a typical mixer -- volume fader, mute, crossfader assignment, etc. Additionally, each line contains an MP3/WAV/Karaoke player, with all of the controls you might expect -- including a Pitch/Tempo control. If you have two or more sound cards/audio devices, you can route any line to your secondary device, for headphone preview or beat-matching. Alternatively, you might use this feature to simply allow more control with your external mixer.

Full Karaoke Support
The days of hunting down a Karaoke CD, finding the right track, and having only one or two singers queue'd up are gone! With a Laptop, you can replace not only your CD players; you can eliminate the need for cases of CDs, and take up less space than you ever imagined!

Supported Karaoke Formats
You can either play an MP3 that has a corresponding .CDG file, or you can play directly from a ZIP file. VDJ does this directly, with no need to create temporary files (like most other programs do). VDJ is the only Karaoke system that lets you seek while directly playing a ZIP or MP3 file, without ever losing sync!

Singers List
Even though VDJ looks different from other Karaoke programs, it still contains a Singer's List feature. When enabled, you can queue up any number of songs, along with the name of the person who wishes to sing it. From there, you can drag a song into a line in VDJ, or simply double-click to launch the file in the first line. VDJ will also display a list of singers/songs in the CDG window when no karaoke file is being played (for example, if your CDG window is connected to a second monitor, television, or multiple TVs, your patrons will know who's up next, and when their song will be up).

Easy to Use
Don't be intimidated by the number of buttons you see in the picture. If you have a knack for audio equipment, you will quickly pick up on VDJs use. VDJ comes with a complete Help file, including a Getting Started guide that will have you mixing MP3s in no time!

Headphone Support
VDJ allows you to use an extra sound card for CUEing, or Previewing, a sound file. You can use this feature to assist with beat-mixing (fading two songs together on-beat), or for simply previewing a song before playing it live. Many DJs use their laptop's built-in sound for previewing (since the quality of the internal sound chip is often lacking), and an external USB audio device for their main mix. This configuration allows you the flexibility you are used to with dual CD decks and an external mixer; just like a real mixer, enabling the CUE button routes that line to the headphone output (eg, to your Secondary Sound Card).

Plugin Support
VDJ now offers Plugin support. Third parties can contribute audio processing plugins that can be used within VDJ's Plugin Manager. VDJ comes with a few Plugins as well, including a Compressor/Limiter, a Low-Pass Filter, and Stereo Expansion.

KORG Module 1.1.1 KORG Module 1.1.1
Soft / Mobile Applications 20-09-2015
Maintaining its position at the forefront of mobile music apps, KORG now offers you a new style of performance and production with Korg Module for iPad. Ideal for performance and music production, KORG Module is a high-quality sound module app for iPad that contains a sound library over 1 GB. If you have an external MIDI keyboard and an iPad, you can play studio-quality keyboard and grand piano sounds anywhere. You can also use the sounds of KORG Module for the KORG Gadget music production app.

*** Five dedicated sound engines containing powerful tone ***
KORG Module has five dedicated sound engines, providing a number of high-quality sounds that can be played back on your iPad using the "NATIVE ENGINE”. These engines feature technology that was developed for KORG's historic line of workstations and synthesizers including: Acoustic Piano, Electric Piano, Clav, Organ, and Multi. Each display has carefully selected parameters, making it convenient and easy to adjust the sounds.

*** Welcome to a new mobile world, where your iPad and a MIDI keyboard is all you need for a complete setup ***
Just connect an external MIDI keyboard to your iPad and launch the app to transform your iPad into a high-quality sound module. It's easy to set up and start playing immediately, whether you're in your room, a practice studio, or performing live. KORG Module adopts an open hardware philosophy that allows connection to any MIDI keyboard. In addition to using a KORG MIDI keyboard such as the taktile, microKEY (25-key), or nanoKEY2, you can also use other manufacturer's MIDI keyboards that can be connected to an iPad.

*** Mobile music production in tandem with KORG Gadget ***
You can also use the high-quality KORG Module sounds inside KORG Gadget, the mobile music production app. If you have KORG Module and KORG Gadget, the five tools Salzburg, Montreal, Alexandria, Firenze, and Glasgow are added inside, allowing access the same way as KORG Gadget. These five powerful gadgets will add even more variety to your music productions, raising your music to the next level. Whether for performance or for production, both of these apps deliver ultimate sound.

*** Convenient set list function with a PDF/image score viewer and music player ***
KORG Module provides functions you'll find convenient in any environment. The set list function provides unified management of all the settings a player needs; it lets you recall the sounds in the ideal order, view music notation, or hear a practice song. The score viewer can load and display an image or PDF file; eliminating the need to carry along a printed music score. You can use the internal camera of your iPad to record and view hand-written memos. You can use the music player to select and play a song from the library of the Music app.

*** Power-up even more with expansion sound libraries ***
While KORG Module provides a powerful collection of sounds even with its basic set, you can purchase expansion sound libraries to further extend its sonic scope. As the first round, we present two titles: the third-party mobile premium piano "Ivory Mobile Grand" from SYNTHOGY, and KORG's own vintage electric piano sound set "Wurley Electric Piano." The added sound libraries can be used with KORG Gadget as well.

MusicTech Focus: Ableton Live 9 2015/16 is packed with workshops and features especially for you, whatever your experience with Live. If you are coming to the software from another DAW – as I did recently – we have just the feature on p6 where we look at some of the key differences and the parts of Live that might confuse you on first inspection.

But if you are a more seasoned user, there’s plenty in this special issue too, including the final parts of Live expert Martin Delaney’s mammoth Ultimate Guide To Ableton Live where he looks at everything from adding effects right through to the mixing and mastering processes.

Adding to what is officially the most amount of workshops we’ve had in one issue, there are also specific gear, software and accessory reviews – so you can add to your Live set-ups – plus features to help take your music making to the next level as we look at what it takes to run a pro studio and how to collaborate with like-minded musicians across the globe.

So 40-odd pages of Live workshops will have you powering to music making, and there’s plenty more to help you progress once your productions are done.
