Welcome to another episode of sonic TOUCH - the show dedicated to music creation on the touchscreen device. We are primarilly focussed for now on iOS devices - this may well change as other platforms become viable.

Circumstances dictated that this was shot remotely at the last minute so apologies for any loss in quality. We discuss what we might see at NAMM next week, our Top Five Apps from 2011, then Gaz takes a look at Grain Science synth and the esoteric TC11.

As ever, we look forward to your comments and suggestions.

The review of Grain Science was much appreciated. I was on the fence and certain that I didn't need another gimmicky iOS synth. Thanks guys!

Nick and Gaz: if you haven't already, check out Redmatica's GBSampleManager, a Mac program for managing, creating and editing instruments for the Simple Sampler in GarageBand Touch. The real draw to GBSM is the ability to transfer complete EXS24 instruments from Logic to your GarageBand Touch projects - GBSM turns GB's simple sampler into a multi-sampler sans filter. The software costs only $4.99 US and is available in The Mac App Store.

I like IOS and MIDI    Said...

Also check out the MidiBridge app that allows you to use your "old" Akai SynthStation 25 and Line6 Midi Mobilizer v1 with CoreMidi apps...

Great show. Regarding experimental interfaces nothing beats "the Movement I-V" app in my opinion. A kind of tape-loop controller.
