OMGuitar 2 is a free update to all the existing OMGuitar owners. Due to many requests, we decided to optimize the interface (which has been redrawn from scratch using 3D modelling) and replace the CH#RD matrix with the pre-defined chord boxes like in Futulele app. This video shows only pure unprocessed sound and some internal FX. A demonstration of OMGuitar with effects via Audiobus will follow soon!
Interesting to compare the difference between the GM sounds built into the Zodiac 2, and the Krikit engine sounds.
We will reveal the details about our DAW in the next few days! Stay tuned— Amidio (@AmidioInc) April 29, 2013

Many happy returns, and ...
@causticsunshine Thank you, I hope I can work on a sibling soon :D— Alex Matheu (@distraub) April 29, 2013
Maybe a chance of a sibling too ...
Just got this and it looks completely amazing.
I'll be posting on this over the next few weeks as I get into it. It's a big book, with 4 DVDs containing over 10 hours of video.
We hope for great things.

Doesn't look too bad for something being "thrown together".
Our next update - Hexatone 2! For iPad, coming soon. Meanwhile, we are still working on our DAW.— Amidio (@AmidioInc) April 24, 2013
Anyway, here's what's in the new release of GuitarTone:
- Audiobus added, GuitarJack Model 2 24-bit firmware update and bug fixes.
- Audiobus Input and Filter support now included: Record your guitar with the great sounds of GuitarTone in Audiobus enabled apps, like GarageBand, or filter the output of another app, like NLogSynth, before recording it.
- GuitarJack Model 2 24-bit firmware update: Update firmware on your GuitarJack Model 2 iOS I/O interface to get full 24-bit recording and playback using apps that support those features. Also, with this firmware update, input level controls in GarageBand and Multitrack DAW now work with GuitarJack Model 2. See sonomawireworks.com for instructions on how to update your firmware.
- GuitarTone sounds best with Sonoma's GuitarJack Model 2 audio I/O interface with 1/4 inch input, 1/8" stereo input, an 1/8" stereo headphone/line out with increased drive, 24-bit AD/DA converters, impeccable sound and no discernible noise. Perfect for studio quality audio on-the-go!
A post about this at the Arduino blog. It has an interesting mix of technologies, from Arduino and Android to conductive ink.
A mix of tracks made with gear from Mutable Instruments. Contains tracks made using Synths like the Shruthi-1, Ambika and Anushri. It's meant to showcase the instrument's sonic capabilities through actual tracks.
Everyone's using iPads in their studios these days.
Having already got the MeeBlip SE I think that the micro is going to be an essential next step for me. The micro Black has some awesome new features:
- A compact, surface-mount design. Keeping micro little is a big goal. We’ve added features without expanding the footprint. As you can see in the image, that has meant squeezing a lot onto the board.
- A USB port. MeeBlip micro still has standard DIN MIDI connections, but it adds USB. That means:
- MIDI over USB. You can now connect to a computer without the need for a separate interface. (Class-compliant support means the iPad works, too, via a Camera Connection Kit.)
- Easier programmability, over USB. The USB port also works for modifying MeeBlip micro’s firmware, so you can hack your micro or use firmware updates from us and other users – no more need for an additional hardware adapter.
- Knobbier than ever. 16:1 multiplexing now lets you add more knobs – you can have one for each parameter and still have knobs left over. We have direct switch inputs, too.
- No more lost patches. A snapshot save button writes the current patch to memory so that it’s saved when you turn off MeeBlip. You can change the default MIDI receive channel with that button, too.
Details here, and the news page for emSynth here.
- New Note Grid Sequencer: Matrix like 2-dimensional sequencer module to create melodies (in the Select View Menu)
- New Auto-Complete Modulation: Set Key Steps and connect them automatically with a smooth movement (special thanks to Karl for the hint and his help)
- Samples are now played when hitting the piano roll on running sequencer
- Fixed an issue with the Android 4.2 SdCard mount path
- Minor bugfix in the Note Step-By-Step record mode
- Minor bugfix in the note shifting module

Thanks for @discchord for pointing me at this video.
WARNING:Please not that in order to feed the signal to ZX you need to amplify it. It works perfectly if you are using a tape player ( or ZX +2 ) and the car cassette adapter.
Connect the device to the Spectrum put your files via iTunes/Mail or Safari and enjoy.
I used Sunvox on Android and Linux to create the music and wrote some Pixilang code to create the visualization. If you have any questions or tutorial requests about how to make your own music or visualization, let me know in the comments!
