Mac and Music News

Music Hardware : 34one Released: Tap Tempo for any Keyboard or Sequencer - macmusicPloytec, a Germany based-company run by the people who brought you usb-audio.com, is about to release a new product called "34one," a battery-driven tap tempo pedal.

Synthesizers like the Korg Triton or Yamaha MOTIF / MOTIF ES offer fantastic arpeggio and live sequencing possibilities that are hard to use with a non-click synchronized live band. 34one solves this problem by providing easy-to-use tap tempo, in the form of a 9V block battery-driven pedal that generates MIDI Clock signal.

Music Software : Audacity 1.2: Major Upgrade to Free, Open-Source, Cross-Platform Audio Editor - macmusicAudacity, the free cross-platform sound editor for Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows, is now coming of age, after two years of development. 1.2 is the first major stable release since 1.0 in June 2002, but those years haven't gone wasted: the new release includes professional-quality dithering and resampling, new pitch- and speed-changing effects. Also new: cross-fade effects, screen display fixes, an MP3 tag fix, and audio problems fixed on Apple Power Mac G5s, plus much more.

Music Software : Nuendo Update: Networking and Panther Compatibility - macmusicSteinberg's flagship high-end audio workstation, Nuendo, has been upgraded to version "2.1.2.28." version. Steinberg has improved networking via LAN or via standard network protocols, plus compatibility with Mac OS 10.3 Panther. Nuendo 2.1.2.28 is a free upgrade.

Ed: Steinberg tends to get overshadowed on the Mac by Digidesign, Apple/Emagic, and MOTU, but they're an essential part of what Apple calls the "Mac music ecosystem": they offer unique features no one else does. The most exciting to me is the networking capabilities, and the ability to share audio processing resources across multiple machines. That's huge for studios and classroom labs, not to mention those of us who are collecting multiple Macs or working collaboratively. Any readers out there taking advantage of this capability? Hit comments and let us know. -PK

Music Software : Native Instruments Intakt Loop Sampler 1.03 Released - macmusicIntakt is a rhythmic loop sampler by Native Instruments. This new version adds some new features and improvements: MIDI controller automation, MIDI clock out in the standalone version, support for Open Sound Control and improved VST and RTAS compatibility. Intakt 1.03 is available now as a free update for current users on Mac OS X; the full version sells for $229.

Ed: MIDI controller automation is a big feature for this loop sampler. So, users out there: are you running this alongside existing loop-based software like Live or are you dedicated to one standalone app or another? Click comments for a little show-and-tell with your software rig. -PK
