Rej Poirier of Single Cell Software has introduced Caustic Editor for Volca Sample – a free, multiplatform (Android, iOS, Mac & Windows) app that lets you import, load, record, edit and upload samples for the Korg Volca Sample.

Auxy is a new app for iPad that the developers say is designed for ‘beat making without distraction’.

Our app removes technical barriers to give everyone a better experience.” Continue reading
