I’m still a big fan of RJDJ. I always will be. When they first came around into the iOS scene (before it was iOS of course) they were one of the most, if not the most innovative creators of music making software. And, they still are.
But I continue to enjoy some of the things they did from day 1 as well though, and some of these older scenes are still brilliant for reacting to your environment.
And what’s more it’s a really cool reactive app as well, which makes it even more of an honor to be in the app. If you haven’t tried it, then you need to try it. What more can I say? Seriously, if you know and love RJDJ or the Inception app or that kind of thing, then you should give this a go. You won’t regret it one bit
Oh yeah, and if you hadn’t noticed, the preset name is AshPalm, for Ashley from PalmSounds.
Messing around with stuff is great fun, and if there’s an iOS app that is superb fun, then it’s Jasuto Pro Modular. I haven’t played with this app for ages, and so it’s great to get back into it and discover stuff that I’d started but not done anything with.
The patch, or sketch, or whatever the proper name is, that you can see above uses a sample file that was recorded using RJDJ on a journey home one day. The idea was to record a week of travel sounds using RJDJ and then create patches for it in apps like Jasuto Pro.
I must work out how to get the audio out on this track, but perhaps on another day.
That’s pretty much all I can say about that really. I was thinking about making my own scenes and remembered RJDJ’s RJC1000 application for the mac. I’d tinkered around with it before but not to any serious degree, so I thought I’d give it a try again, but it won’t load properly in Lion, so I may have to try running it on Leopard on my old mac mini.
Not ideal, but I can’t see RJDJ updating it any time soon as they’re too busy with loads of other stuff. Not that I’m complaining you understand.
I tried out a couple of new RJDJ scenes today. I hadn’t noticed them before. They are:
- I site & hide
- Norra Vinter
The first one I wasn’t too impressed with as it was more of a thing to promote the artist, which is fine, but not for me really. The other one is a bit more interesting, but I haven’t had enough time to get into it properly as yet. Once I’ve spent a little more time with it I’ll write a bit more about it. Even so, it’s nice to find some more scenes to play with.
I should really get on with writing one of my own shouldn’t I.
I’m really into using RJDJ for recording now, so here are my latest batch of sounds:
The following recordings were made at a young musicians concert:
