Hey, Look What I Made...
by Chris Randall
That project I kept mentioning that I couldn't talk about? It's now available. Since you're reading this blog, you're most likely a musician, and since you're a musician, you most likely had a TASCAM Porta One, or one of the many rip-offs from the likes of Fostex. Portastudio is a more-or-less complete clone of the Porta One for the iPad.
It works pretty much like you'd think it works. It can utilize a USB audio interface via the Camera Connection Kit, or use the built-in mic or a headset mic. (Normal iPhone earbuds, e.g.) Render to WAV, which shows up in iTunes in the App Sharing section. Since it's going to be the first question, and will most likely be asked by Beauty Pill, I'll go ahead and answer now: yes, we'll be adding Soundcloud uploading.
Anyhow, there 'tis. US$9.99. Let me know here or via email if you have any issues; if you write TASCAM support, the email will eventually make its way to me anyhow, so you might as well go ahead and jump to the front of the line.
