Propellerhead has introduced Take Creative Vocal Recorder – a free digital audio recorder app for iOS, designed for quickly capturing musical ideas.
It’s designed with a simplified interface – with a single tap, you’re recording. It’s designed for use with headphones, so you can record in sync with built-in metronome, loops or beats.
The app also offers three tracks for fleshing out ideas and audio effects processing.
Note: Take is optimized for the built-in microphone on your iOS device. Wear headphones to hear your backing tracks. Best results come from using headphones (the ones without an integrated microphone) and recording into your iPhone/iPod/iPad mic directly.
Here are examples of Take Creative Vocal Recorder in action: Continue reading

You can also route the MIDI from your keyboard to apps and assign different key zones to them.
In addition, all MIDI transfer can be monitored in order to find problems or just to learn what MIDI is doing (normally) behind the scenes.
Here is a demo of MIDIFlow in action: Continue reading
