Last Christmas…I bought my iPad Retina. It took some time to decide about the platform, because actually I’m more into Android. But, iPad has some good MusicMaking possibilities, so I decided to spend that $300 more to buy my fourth screen 🙂
I’m now the proud owner of an Asus Notebook (6 years old, running Vista, slow when booting, but still working fine when up and running), a HTC One X+ smartphone, a Sony E-Reader (overloaded with > 1700 ebooks) and an iPad.
Talking about music: Garageband is Apple’s Flagship music app, but actually it is just a collection of out-of-the-box samples you can order and re-order. More interesting stuff is Image-line’s Fl Studio Mobile, Propellerheads Rebirth, the original desktop-version is now a free download, and Korg’s iMS-20.
Today I put together this little piece of music “Korgelig”- a portmanteau of “Korg” änd the Dutch word “korzelig” – “grouchy”. Not worth to assign an opus# to it, but I uploaded it to SoundCloud. My skills definitely need to be improved, but practice makes perfect – or at least permanent.
Another little composition I made a few days ago was with ReBirth – baptized “ReBird”.
What’s in a name? Probably the squeaky sounds 🙂
