Re: Re: Worth getting iPod touch for Live Looping only?


You should also be aware that a number of the iOS apps utilize the
motion sensors in the iPod Touch: so you can use gestures as well in
your performance to control various parameters (I'm thinking, again,
of ThumbJam and MorphWiz that allow you to designate just which
parameters that will be...vibrato, flange, whatever!).

Exciting times...
