Line 6 releases new apps for MIDI mobilizer
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-11-19)
Line 6, Inc. announces a dozen new apps for the MIDI
Mobilizer™, the only MIDI interface for Apple iPod touch, iPhone and
“Developers are doing an amazing job of harnessing the power of the
Apple devices and turning them into serious music-making MIDI machines
– all made possible by MIDI Mobilizer,” remarked Chris Grigg, Mobile
Products Manager at Line 6. “Prepare to be completely amazed at how
much you can do with such tiny, affordable gear.”
MIDI Mobilizer is the most simple, compact, and portable Line 6 device
yet. It easily connects directly with any Apple iPod touch, iPhone or
iPad and coupled with MIDI Memo Recorder (a free app available for
download on the Apple App Store), it allows musicians to conveniently
play, record, and backup MIDI data any time, anywhere.
Following the announcement earlier this summer of the free MIDI
Mobilizer Third Party Developer Program, over 70 app developers around
the world are working on new apps that will support MIDI Mobilizer.
In addition to MIDI Memo Recorder, there are currently a dozen apps
available for MIDI Mobilizer: NanoStudio, NLogSynth Pro, NLog MIDI
Synth, Music Studio, Pianist Pro, StepPolyArp, MIDI Surface, Little
MIDI Machine, MIDI Live, bs-16i, and S1MIDI Trigger.
NanoStudio, for example, is a techno-styled, full-featured virtual
recording studio complete with 16 sample trigger pads, a comprehensive
sequencer, a sample editor, a mixer and 10 FX units. Another is NLog
Synth PRO, which is a professional virtual analogue synthesizer with
192 factory sounds, powerful synth features, and more. Pianist Pro,
an 88-key virtual piano for the iPad, has been highlighted in Apple
commercials and recommended by the New York Times, Rolling Stone
magazine, and others.
These apps are just the beginning – many more are in development and
will be available soon.
MIDI Mobilizer is compatible with millions of MIDI (Musical Instrument
Digital Interface) devices, from classic and modern, including
synthesizers, digital pianos, effects processors, and Line 6 guitar
amps and POD® products.
MIDI Mobilizer is available now, with an estimated street price of $69.99.
