less hardware, more music !

As our software is getting more and more powerful inside laptop computers , ipads and smartphones, musicians can propose more easily open workshops for children or adults . At Audiorama, we are doing a lot in different schools and social centers. When you are going to schools with your equipment nearly every day, you begin to think about less hardware and lighter devices. When you bring 4 to 8 ipads, a laptop, audio and midi interface, a microphone and cables, you can put all these devices in one suitcase or a big backpack and roll it to the classroom. But if you have to bring also the speakers and a mixer, you need at least a second heavy suitcase and you begin to break your back … Well, we did that for years and that was really a problem ! Recently we solved it thanks to 2 wonderful little hardware devices, that we’d like to show you here :
– a very very little console to mix 4 ipads : Rolls MX42 – 4 stereo ins and 1 stereo out, passive, very simple and cheap, 10cm long, a very light but solid  little box. And if you need more ipads, buy a second one and plug it to your audio interface. You’re ready to let 8 kids play together on those wonderful ipads synthesizers, samplers, beat makers or any app you like to use.
But now even if they have prepared their individual music parts on little headphones, you want them to play for real on speakers and you know that good speakers are heavy. We tried good but heavy ones and little ones too, but not so good, not enough power, lacking bass frequencies. We discovered one stereo speaker that solved our problem :
iLoud : very well manufactured by IK Multimedia, this new little box is powerful, clean, stereo in one box and can work on it’s battery power a whole day.We have tested these two devices during the last 4 months at our kids workshops in Florida and in France. It changed our educational practice and you know what : we don’t need any power plug, all the devices run on their own batteries : laptop, interface, mixer, ipads, speaker.
Now don’t misunderstood our intention, this is not advertising. This is just to help you and let all of us think about that hardware problems in our everyday musician’s life.

a selection of musical apps on ipads and smartphones

2 types : audio apps can be played without a computer, most of them on an ipad and an iphone, but very little on androïd.
midi apps are designed to control parameters in a computer software or on any hardware electronic instrument.
AUDIO apps :
synths, samplers (sometimes emulations of mythic hardware devices, sometimes brand new multitouch ios devices) :
Moog : Animoog, Filtatron
Korg : iMS-20, iMini, iPolysix, iKaossilator
Propellerhead : Thor, ReBirth
Arturia : iSEM
edjing : one of the best dj app (also exists in androïd format)
IK multimedia : SampleTank
Retronyms : Phase84, SynthDrum machines : ElliottGarage : EGDR808 (one of the good TR808 emulations), Beat_Machine (F)
Workstations : Tabletop, BeatMaker2, Gadget (some of these can integrate other compatible apps), GarageBand,
Funny apps : it doesn’t mean that you cannot make serious professional music with them but they usually propose a limited but most of time very inventive access to sounds and are usually designed for non-musicians : (F is for free app)
Propellerhead : Figure
ZKM :  Small Fish (F), Sonor Field (F)
John Cage Foundation : CagePiano (F),
Larrson : 4’33”- John Cage (F)

MIDI apps :
Liine Lemur
(supposed to be also on androïd, but… )  the legendary multitouch french hardware has a second awesome career on ipad. On it you can design all the surfaces you need to control by midi or osc any existing software or hardware. Amazing objects, with all sorts of specific behaviours. It’s true : you can build anything with or without coding. Awesome for mixing, spatialization, live electronics, sound installations. Very professional.Other midi controller editors : Midi Touch, OpenOsc (also on androïd ?)
Some specific non-editable midi controllers for Logic Pro or other software

Of course, this list can’t be complete and new apps are released continously, it’s only the beginning specially on the appstore. It’s my selection at now. We are currently using these apps in different Audiorama projects for performances, installations, workshops.
If you happen to be in Florida tomorrow : I’m giving an overview of all these apps in an open and free workshop :
Saturday March 14th 2015 – 1 to 3 pm – at ACA Harris House 214 S. Riverside Drive New Smyrna Beach, Florida, USA.
I’m here in residence for 2 months and a half.
If you’re french : I’ll do a big professional workshop on AbletonLive + ipads + M4L – June 22 to 26, 2015 in Strasbourg, France.
