There was a Revolution yesterday...
I have decided to talk in the YouTube videos...
It's just horrible for me, but after 50 years, I have to accept my voice....
Who knows perhaps that in 50 years more I will start to sing...
OK, it's cool, but what I have to say here?
The same things that I already said in the Video?
Yes, perhaps that it can be cool for deaf man...
At the same time, I am not really sure that a lot of deaf people are looking my YouTube channel...
So for this time, I will say nothing more here...
Just have a look at the Video demo...
A Super App!
While I was writing the name of this App in the title field of this post, I felt a little bit...
(I didn't talk about this in App Store description....)
... a little bit weird, as everytime that I have to write the name of one of the Apps from this developer....
There's a Revolution!
Also, or perhaps because of this, I could not launch the Countdown yesterday...
All the shops were closed...
I don't know why...
Perhaps that the Thaï people get the info about the revolution before you...
Have a nice day or night depending of where you are in the Galaxy!
This App is terrific! Awesome!
I will keep it into my iPad until the end...
I mean, not the end of my iPad...
Because this App can convert a sheet music into a MIDI file!
Multi voices sheet = Multi MIDI file channels!
Sheet Music Scanner can also convert a music sheet into an Audio or a XML doc.
Play it also. You can select an instrument from the built in sound library (Check out this list in the tutorial below), transpose your music sheet by semitones, set the pitch in hertz and the Tempo.
How it works?
You take a photo with the camera of your iDevice or import a file from you camera roll, another App,...
Then you light your cigarette, and you play the sheet music.
Does it works well?
Watch the video demo...
Sheet Music Scanner is great for people who can not read a music score.
Great for those who like me, need the same time to read a page of a music score as the Cancer Ward Novel by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn ... Awesome for those who can read As SLow aS Possible - from John Cage as fast as this review but need to convert it to an audio or MIDI file..
A Killer App, a Must Have!
Review by Ed
URC is really awesome.
The App Store description is totally honest and explain everything better than I can do.
So, this is the App Store description. In bold characters my comments...
The Ultimate Rhythm Coach is your own personal teacher and the best rhythm-training tool that’s always at your fingertips!
Yes, it's true, URC is really awesome because it comes with a lot of features that you will never see in another App.
The Ultimate Rhythm Coach is full of settings and features designed to make your learning experience easier and better while also providing nearly infinite new ways to challenge yourself.
I also think that URC can be a great tool for music teachers....
The Ultimate Rhythm Coach uses traditional music notation, and with it you can create customized rhythm exercises or simply generate an exercise using only the notes and note groupings you want to practice. You can even create and save custom rhythmic figures to include in generated exercises! So easy! So fast! Unique to the Ultimate Rhythm Coach is the ability to program your own metronome completely independent of the exercise’s time signature. First of the first awesome feature that I have never seen in another App... Exercises can be saved, printed, and shared via email, SMS, messengers, and social media.
Visual Read Ahead: The exercise will disappear at the specified distance (in 16th-note increments) ahead of the cursor to develop the ability to "read ahead". Second Unique feature... A great idea!
Loop Areas: Isolate selected portions of an exercise to repeat.
Mute Areas: Turn off the audio for selected portions of an exercise to test your timing accuracy. Third one, and one more time a great idea!
Easy Notation input / edit: Unlike a lot of notation software, entering and editing notation with URC is user-friendly.
Advanced Metronome: Compose a metronome that is independent of the exercise. Program a syncopated 7/8 click to play underneath your 4/4 exercise!
Multiple Time Signatures in one exercise: Easily create mixed-meter exercises.
Tuplets: Create complex polyrhythmic figures in subdivisions of 3, 5, and 7
Hide Playback Cursor: Challenge your ability to follow along without the aid of the playhead. Good idea...
Hide Bar Lines: A unique challenge to test your ability to accurately read rhythm without the reference of bar lines. Too...
Count-Off options: Select a 0, 1, or 2-bar count-off, or 1 bar each of the Basic and Advanced metronomes.
Visual Metronome: An option to have the screen flash in time with the metronome.
Exercise Library: Save your created exercises or practice with one of the many pre-loaded exercises.
Sound Bank: Change the sound of the metronome and the exercise playback.
Audio Pan: Pan the exercise and metronome independently to R/L channels.
To conclude, URC is really awesome, very very well think. It can be use by all musicians from beginners to experts. By music teachers too.
A Killer App! A Must Have!
Review by Ed & the developer
A very big KAP to David Ventura
Sound quality: very good!
Audio Processing: very good too (I don't know at thus moment if we can slow down or speed up the loops... I only tried the 2 band EQ and the Reverb)
Features: a project comes with several Tracks. You can mute tracks. Export them (I remember AudioCopy and iTunes files sharing), Audiobus.... Check out the App Store description below..

The App Store is closed. For 1 week. So no App of the day, no New Apps, Updates, or Sales...
2 days ago I wrote that I will post the Quantiloop review....
I didn't post it...
As you know or not, I live in little home in wood in Bangkok.... I don't have glasses at my windows... So every night animals comes to visit me... Sometimes weird ones that I don't know.... One time it was a big snake... A very long one... Around 2 meters... I talked to him... I said that, if he likes he can stay here to take a rest.... He answered: spsssss, spsssss, then he went.... To tell you the truth, I was a litle bit scared... But since I am living here, in this place like no others in Bangkok, I learned a lot and I am no more scared about anything, excepted to broke or lose the 3 things that I need: my 2 iPads and my guitar...
So, I share my room with a lot of animals... Geckos, Lezards, and a family of rats... Yes! They are really nice... A little bit crazy sometimes... But really nice... The only problem with them is that they love my guitar's strings and this night, 2 days ago, I forgot to close my case....
When I wake up., There was only one string alive... All the other died in horrible pain I guess...
Now, I have to go to a music shop to buy a set, but it's raining non stop here in BKK since 2 days and it's really cold...
If you are a clmatoseptic, come in Thailand...
So, I will post the review as soon as I will be able to go to the guitar shop...
(I have a little bit more money now, with my new job... Casting editor... Enough to rent a room in a condominium... But no, I,don't want... I love this place... I love all the people in my Soï and around... They take care of me... and protect me. I know that all the things I am talking about could be strange for Western people.... But I love my life... I love to be poor....)
Also, from now, I will post a video each time that I will receive a new App...
I noticed something and it's the only way for me to earn more views on my YouTube channel...
If I need this, it's because of the developers...
I know that some of them are looking the video's views when I am asking for an App...
It's too bad because at this moment more and more people are visiting this blog everyday.
Between 300 and 400...
Videos have never been the reason why people came to visit Apps4idevices. Because of a simple reason... Most of the visitors already know an App when I posting the review.... No, they come here for the tutorial, to check the UI, all the features.... How an App works. And also for help... For the hotline....
Do you like to know what I noticed?
I join a group 1 month ago on Facebook... the iOS Audio Units group.
Everytime that I am posting the review of an Audio Units App, I share the post on this group.
Everytime, I can see that more people are visiting A4i. Around 100 more than usual. These days I can have 500 visitors. But the videos are not over watching. Perhaps 10 or 20 more views ... for the same reason that I have described above.
2 days ago, I posted the Groove Rider GR-16 Let's open it together post. It's not an Audio Units App so I didn't share this post.... In 1 day this video has been watched 100 times...
So, I will have to do this from now..
So, all my apologies for my horrible English accent, the noises in the background, all my English mistakes, my horrible voice and everything....
This night I received 2 new Apps. Gamebi and Songform rhythm track.
The Gamebi video is already on YouTube.
(This time and the next time I will not open an App before to make this post.)
This morning I was not be able to do the Let's open it together post for Songform despite that I started to record it. In fact, when I launched the App, a download has started... 100 files... I have a 4G connection only... so, I had to stop the video...
Because of this, the image below.
I will launch the Countdown for the Sunday Contest #020 tonight....
Already a lot of Apps...
Have a nice day or night depending of where you are in the Galaxy!
I joined a Facebook group last week.
Home Studio Recording
One man was asking how we are backuping your Projects files...
CD, DVD, hard dives, or Cloud (Dropbox, One Drive,...) was the answers.
CD & DVD... I did this a long time ago and I was not really happy with this solution... Too many CDs or DVD and not so reliable. Worst, when I was traveling, it was impossible for me to carry all my CD cases...
Hard drives: not reliable at all...
Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, or others Cloud services can be very expensive with time....
There is another solution, totally free with unlimited storage, with unlimited possibilities...
This is what I do. I have a secret website where I save everything. My Audio files, images, emails,...
More, I have my favourite music playlists, radio, my resume, some movies,...
There are a lot of way to do a website for Free and this even if you don't know the HTML. (Note, that the HTML is very easy... On the Web you can find a lot of templates....)
I am using Weebly but there are a lot of other offers... I am using Weebly because I am working with an iPad only and their App is very well done.
Below I show you some pages of my secret website.
(Don't be scared! It's very easy to do this a,d if you need help feel free to contact me.
This solution is much more reliable than others, totally Free and allows you to access your files from everywhere in this Galaxy!
When I am starting a new job, I always create a website.
I add a password (HTML) because we use it to share everything and to communicate. Me, the Artist, the Manager & the Production.
I create an upload page where everybody can upload Files.
I add a music player because it can be borring depending of the file size. (Unlimited file size & storage)
I create a page where I can always be able to recover the material they gave to me...
I create a page for each tracks. Easy to download and listen to the different mixes, arrangements of a Track...
Same, at the end for all the tracks. In every page there is a comment section where everybody can communicate
At the end, I create my private page, with all my work.
I also have my secret website...
I) My desktop
2) All my Audio loops
3) My HTML codes
4) My emails
5) My images
6) My favourite radio stations, my mp3 and movies when I am travelling...
6) My resume
7) My tabs
8) All my Apps
9) All my very private documents...
(A limiter limit the sound and leave intact the rest of the audio material. For example if you limit at -5dB everything that goes above this limit is turned down. A maximixer limit the sound at a given value and boost the sound above the specified threshold.)
La claque” in French!
The “Slap” in English!
Watch the video demo…
I don’t want to talk anymore, and by the way, I can’t…
I am down… KO!
I need 2 minutes...
You can read the App Store description (a part):
Maxima is an audio effect designed to provide automatic gain control of your audio materials to ensure that the levels stay consistent and never exceed 0dB. It's a clever combination of dynamic processors that can be set to provide a gentle transparent signal boost respecting the initial dynamic or significant colorised level maximisation. Thanks to a unique signal path, algorithms and a small set of parameters, Maxima makes a complicated task easy.
In addition to the classic final stage application, Maxima excels on individual tracks too. With a few changes it's easy to go from the common gain deviation compensation, e.g. for vocals, to drastical audio changes that will bring your audio material to new territories: boost reverb tails, flattenize drums…
>>, this will help on setting the right parameters and have a visual feedback.
Maxima is magic! And its power is so incredible that anyone can use it ... from the beginner sound engineer to the most confirmed ...
From now, It’s my secret weapon.. So take care!

I am so happy!
LumBeat has just released the Mid East Drummer App!
I am so happy because I am a Persian !
So, it's sure that I will not be really objective....
No,, not really...
There are some new features that could excused me if I concluded my review like this:
The best of the LumBeat's App!
First, you can set the Time Signature when you are creating a pattern. (Assymetrical too! 7/8, 5/8, 15 / 16, 11/ 16 ..)
Because of this, we can filter our search with a Time Signature (load a Pattern)
There are also 2 tracks for the Cymbals and you can set the Ghost Rolls separately for each track (as well as the Jamming sensitivity)
For each Percussions, 4 Samples.
Now, for those who don't know,ow the LumBeat Apps....
It's a Drum Machine like no others.
The best one!
Because in each of these Drum Machines the developer has put a very litle human inside...
And this human will play Rolls or Jam (play fills) all along your patterns...
There are also a page the "Live Pads" where you can assigned 8 patterns to 8 Pads.
You will be able to control them via MIDI.
There is a Song Mode too and a Sound Module mode with allows you to use all the LumBeat's Apps as a Sound Expander.
And one other thing, everytime for each of his App, the sound is perfect.
I forgot also the 4 effects: Compressor, EQ, Delay a,d Reverb.
East Mid Drummer is perfect! The Best of the LumBeat's Apps!
A Killer,App, a Must Have!
Review by Ed
Yesterday I restart the Let's open it together post
Despite that this post is horrible for me to do... My voice, to listen to my voice... A might are! And in English with my so perfect French English accent... Top!
But it's the only way to earn more view for the YouTube channel...
So, all my apologies for that.
Yesterday, I posted 3 Let's open it together videos.
Groove Rider GR-16 Awesome!
When an App's name contains thebwords Rap or DJ, I am always scared...
But LooptunesDJ is Awesome too!
I love it... Very well done and easy to use.
I have to hurry up...
I have to make some moods for the next casting for Puma
Have a nice day or night depending of where you are in the Galaxy
Because I can read everywhere a Policy...
