« on: June 21, 2011, 12:02:47 PM »

Avast Thar Mateys,

       This be a handy looking device.  Aye recoomend ye check it out.  http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MidiMobil?utm_source=CSE&utm_medium=PPC&utm_campaign=none&utm_term=MidiMobil-iPhoneiTouch_MIDI_Interface&zmam=89202644&zmas=1&zmac=2&zmap=MidiMobil&SID=0  Perhaps the good inspector 109 and his gallant crew can integrate it into the Zendrumdrive.

That's pretty cool Pyrate!
Looks like it could just go inline between the Zendrum and Zendrumdrive if what it's recording/sending is MIDI data.

To make it REALLY cool, we need the ZendrumDrive App so you can trigger sounds in the iPod.

In all truth, that can't be more than a decade off once the tech catches up.

Futureman recently brought this to my attention.
Dynamics are the hang up.
Any app writers listening out there?
We've already got the core samples...more to come.

In this context I'd imagine that "more dynamics" == "more samples".  You can tease a bit more out by analyzing trigger patterns, but ultimately for dynamic realism you're talking about storing (and streaming) tens of gigabytes of samples.  Poor little iPhone would break down in tears -- heck, even a low end PC has trouble doing this faithfully (as we've probably all encountered by now).

That said, there probably is a middle road that can be followed.  Perhaps something along the lines of Roland's COSM technology where you start out with a smaller set of samples and then rely on digital modeling to alter the characteristics and dynamics.  In fact, I'd be very surprised to hear that Roland, Alesis , et al were NOT working on such an app.  I thought I'd seen some apps before that used FM synthesis (aka old skool) which probably makes using an iPhone as a sound source a reality, but you'd never expect high quality from that.

If a tiny portable sound source is what you're after, then the V-Machine (or variant) is probably what you're looking for:  http://www.smproaudio.com/index.php/en/products/v-machines/vmachine

If cost is an issue and high-realism is not, then a small Roland or Alesis SR drum machine might be worth looking at.  These are also good as back-ups for when the crap hits the fan too, as they don't take up much space in your gig bag.

Garageband for iPad 2 would be a good place to start?

To be able to do this all apps need to be compatible with the multitasking possibility. When you open een 'wifi server' and switch to the remote control app no connection will be available.

If that works though and I can work with the music studio I think it should be possible to create whole songs with just your iPod and a WiFi connection. I also downloaded the app 'FingerBeat' it's a sampler with which I had loads of fun

Well looks like Alesis might be onto something?
