It's about time we did another round-up of some of the tracks we've been listening to over on SoundCloud. Here is this week's trio of tracks. We think they really show off what can be done now with the raft of music creation apps we have on the iPad. See what you think:
'Forever I Know' by onwardvoyageur
This song is just beautiful and sounds great. Played using a Ukelele, and the Pocket Organ / ThumbJam / GarageBand apps on the iPad, plus (presumably) onwardvoyageur's 6 year old Daughter on piano, we think you'll like it.
'Thursday, Two PM' by Victor Lams
We're not sure if it is the cute vocals, kooky instruments or just the number of apps used to create this song that makes us love this track, but love it we certainly do. Our only criticism, it's too short, so we have to keep playing it again. Great job and great production Victor!
'Sonic Vibrations (Original Club Mix)' by Sensadark
A change of pace now. Sensadark contacted us to let us know about his tracks on SoundCloud that were all created with Korg's wonderful iMS-20 app and we are glad he did.
This kind of uplifting club sound is just what we need pumping out at full volume on a dark, dreary wet day in England's so-called Summer. We're not so sure our work mates agree, but we're much happier now. Turn it up loud!
Over to you
We hope you enjoyed listening to our picks this week, be sure to leave a comment either here or over on the tracks at SoundCloud and let us know what you think.
