I can’t understand much of what is said in this video, but it hardly matters because there are some amazing works of wrist-worn kinetic art. The first half shows what looks to be wristwatches made largely of wood and perhaps bone. The second half focuses on a maker of high-end watches featuring unique uses of the tourbillon. The final products are quite different, but equally amazing.


Here’s What Apple Music Looks Like to Artists

IMG_4674

Apple Music, the company’s streaming / social / radio service, rolls out today. So you’ll see plenty of people talking about how it looks to listeners.

But how does it look to artists?

If you followed my previous advice about signing up for “Music for Artists” via Apple Connect, you may already be having a look. But here’s the big-picture overview.

Connect – Where?

Connect involves a few ingredients:
1. A Web-administered identity, connected to your iTunes account
2. A (read-only) presence with content in iTunes on desktop
3. The ability to both read and add content from the Apple Music app on iOS

First, you’ll need to verify an artist profile and wait for approval. See, previously:
Here’s How To Get Yourself on Apple Music – Even Unsigned

Once that’s done, you can see your account in iTunes Connect. Developers for iOS and the OS X App Store will find this familiar: there’s a Web interface for administering your identity, with the same name. It’s also related to a similar ‘iTunes Connect’ feature that for years has allowed labels and major artists to upload content to iTunes, though here we’re talking about functionality and content that appears in a new, unrelated section. From this point on, “Connect” will refer to the fledgling social media-style channel that appears in the new Apple Music.

And from there, you can … do nothing, actually. You can see if an account is verified, but that’s it. (You’ll see in my screenshot here Apple approved me as a soloist but appears to be waiting on my label for the duo I’m part of.)

No, to actually use “Music for Artists,” you have to switch to the app. So, whereas I can add content to Facebook and SoundCloud from desktop and mobile apps but also from the Web interface, Apple is apps-or-nothing.

To get the Apple Music app, you’ll need to update your software. On OS X, that’s easy – you can just update iTunes, without a restart. On iOS, you’ll need to update the entire operating system to iOS 8.4. (Android support is somewhere in the future.)

Let’s start at what you see as a viewer.

The Trent Reznor Social Network

Connect is based on “following” artists. By default, this is artists you’ve already got in your iTunes Library. On desktop iTunes, your choices are pretty limited. So, in my case, I was greeted with what appeared to be Instagram if Instagram were entirely about Trent Reznor. (Not a terrible thing, but there you are.)

reznoria

On mobile, you can choose to switch on or off the “automatic” follow feature (based on adding artists to your library). You can also drill down and follow or unfollow certain artists. You can also choose to “find more” artists, though that leads to a somewhat alarming selection of “recommended” artists that seems to be the same for everyone. (That or else I’ve made some horrible karmic error that makes Apple think I like One Direction.)

IMG_4672

You can still find artists manually, via a search feature. But there’s no Web interface, and that means no Facebook integration and the like.

You can “heart” content, comment, or share (via Apple’s standard sharing facility). Comments are public, but there’s a ‘report concern’ link (if someone starts saying something unseemly to Trent, which for me hadn’t happened yet).

And then you scroll forever. On iTunes on desktop, content lives in a fixed layout that doesn’t adapt to the width of your screen.

Adding Connect Content

You can only add content – for now – via the iOS app, not even via the new iTunes on Mac.

IMG_4670

The actual content is associated with your profile (or one of your profiles). It includes:

1. Message (Text, link)
2. Uploaded content (Video, photo, a song from your music library, or a Soundbite recorded from the mic)
3. Apple Music Library content

The library of Apple Music is the one way to go beyond what you already own.

The interface is ridiculously limited. Basically, you get access to your iTunes Music library on your device, and photos and video stored in your library, plus the ability to make these Soundbites. That’s it. I’m hoping that you’ll be able to share via other facilities, but for now, you can’t. So, for instance, there’s no obvious way to upload a snippet from a music creation app to the app – other than go through the library, anyway.

If you do upload music from your library, you’re presented with a metadata editing interface.

But for each of these methods, all content is uploaded from iOS only. Got some video shot on a DSLR? You have to first load that onto an iOS device before you can upload. Got a track you finished on your computer? Ditto.

This restriction is annoying enough on a service like Instagram. But at least Instagram has “instant” in the name, and serves the purpose of making photos immediate. Connect is geared specifically for pro creators, and there’s no clear reason it’s mobile-linked. Digging through Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, in fact, most stuff seemed to be archival.

One exception: GarageBand lets you export tracks directly to the service, from both the latest iOS and OS X versions. But, again, that means extra steps for a lot of content makers – adding friction to a service we’re not using yet. And even if we’re talking your iPad alone, most apps make it easier to upload to SoundCloud than it is right now to upload to Connect.

IMG_4669

You also can only upload one type of content at a time. So, for instance, say you’re on tour. You snap a photo with your iPhone and want to record a little soundbite. You can’t actually put those together in one post; you have to upload each separately.

How Connect Connects

So, it’s a chore to upload content – where can it be seen once it’s there?

Once you have that material, it can show up in a few different places.

1. It’ll appear in Apple Music to anyone who’s a “fan” – they’ve added your music to their library, they’ve bought your music on iTunes, they follow you directly via Connect, or they visit your artist page.

2. You can attach it to an already-existing album – basically, making “easter eggs” for your music on iTunes.

3. You can make an embeddable player at http://linkmaker.itunes.apple.com/

4. There is a Web page on Apple.com associated with the content, with a link.

5. A basic sharing function will copy that link directly or share it on Facebook or Twitter (though only once it’s posted).

And this experience is…

Well, absolutely horrible, unforgivably horrible, like no one had ever seen the Internet. SoundCloud alone can in a couple of clicks make an embeddable player and share audio to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, just to name a few. With a couple more clicks, it can keep up with my concert appearances from another service.

Just read the above a couple of times if it hasn’t sunk in:

You can only upload to it from Apple Music on iOS – even the latest OS X software doesn’t work. You can create embeddable content, but using a confusing, separate tool that (at the moment) only supports album content. And then once uploaded, it’s needlessly hard to share with other services.

Correction: It is available online. For instance, here’s a link that refers to a picture Moby just posted of some gear:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/post/idsa.c5999628-1fca-11e5-94d3-dd2e912b9efb

And that shows up on Apple’s site, though annoyingly the page template seems to be broken (unless they want those enormous margins), the navigation is set up to Apple’s products (in case you want to encourage your fans to buy an iMac), and the right half of the page is taken up by an ad for Apple Music subscriptions.

moby

Hey, Moby: you know, you could actually send that photo to CDM (or, heck, any music blog) and get more engagement.

Interestingly, Apple is sharing some content to Tumblr:

http://applemusic.tumblr.com/

But media there appears to be embedded directly, plus what as near as I can tell are hard-coded, manual links to iTunes content. That’s not anything like being able to share content in the way we’d normally understand or want.

Connect Comparisons

At the moment, “Connect” is about one thing:

It’s about getting content into Apple’s walled garden in iTunes – and now its streaming interface.

I don’t think it’s even fair to judge Connect based on the sweeping, hyperbolic rhetoric Apple used to describe it in its rollout. It simply isn’t what Apple described it as. This isn’t a way for artists to connect with fans, unless those fans somehow don’t know how to use Facebook, Instagram, SoundCloud, or a Web browser.

And Connect can’t even be compared to tools that do take advantage of the Web and social media. It’s simply technically a different animal.

What you can compare Connect to is a tool like Spotify for Artists:
http://www.spotifyartists.com/

Just like Spotify for Artists, Apple is using a verification process so that content associated with artists comes from an accurate source and can’t be vandalized.

Now, here’s the good news: Connect is better than Spotify in some ways, when you compare head-to-head like this. Apple’s verification process is easier – you don’t have to amass followers first. You can share extra content – those photos, sound bites, videos, and tracks, plus text. There is a sense of a mini social network. And there’s the app support for adding content.

The bad news: even Spotify for Artists is more powerful than Apple Music for Artists. (Huh, wonder where they thought of that title?)

Spotify lets artists add stuff that actually makes them money, like merch and tour dates (via Songkick, which also integrates with SoundCloud). Playlists are a better fit for Spotify. And notifications keep users up to date.

Plus, Spotify lets artists link to those artist profiles, whereas I couldn’t find a way to even link into Connect content.

To me, that’s a weak showing against an entrenched competitor. But worse still, Apple set the bar even higher – and it’s one they simply can’t reach. They went as far as saying Connect would revolutionize how artists talk to fans.

The problem is, artists already have more ways of connecting with fans than they can handle. This adds work with almost zero incentive.

Even Less than a Walled Garden

It’s easy to write a conclusion here, as it’s inescapable.

Connect is a social network that’s antisocial; it’s a tool for “connecting” that is disconnected from absolutely everything else – sometimes even within Apple’s own ecosystem. It seems to be mostly isolated even from the other apps on your iPhone, and only a fraction of its already-limited functionality is available on your Mac or PC.

When you do want to share, it’s a chore: iOS- (and GarageBand-)only, via a completely uninspired interface that covers only the most basic of functionality.

“Connect” is for connecting to fans, but apart from a comment or a ‘like,’ fans have very little control over even what they see on the service.

Most damning, apart from some comments or likes, you can’t really gauge how content was doing. There aren’t any additional statistics, for instance, that I could find, that would indicate how content shared is doing.

I can tell you this: my average Facebook posts on my personal page get higher engagement than Trent Reznor was today on Apple Music. So… uh…

Right, unless Apple Music absolutely explodes over the next few weeks and those same users prove to be heavy Connect users, it’s hard to imagine any of this will be worth your time. And I’ll leave it there, for now.

Mégaprojet immobilier à Pierrefonds: exemplaire, vraiment?

Plus j’entends parler du mégaprojet immobilier envisagé dans Pierrefonds-Ouest, plus je me questionne sur les qualités urbanistiques d’un tel développement résidentiel.

Pour vous résumer ce dossier, le maire de Montréal, Denis Coderre, a confirmé vendredi dernier vouloir aller de l’avant avec l’un des plus importants projets de développement immobilier de l’histoire récente de Montréal, celui du secteur de Pierrefonds-Ouest. Au total, près de 6000 logements pourraient y voir le jour d’ici 10 ans sur un site ayant une superficie similaire… au mont Royal!

L’administration Coderre assure que ce futur quartier se bâtirait en harmonie avec l’écosystème du secteur, et va même jusqu’à affirmer que ce projet sera «exemplaire».

Eh bien, n’en déplaise à M. Coderre, c’est bien mal parti.

Tout d’abord, il y a des lacunes flagrantes de transparence dans ce dossier, qui se négocie depuis 10 ans derrière des portes closes, notamment avec des promoteurs qui seraient liés à la mafia. Sans compter qu’un ancien consultant de la Ville, David Cliche, travaille aujourd’hui comme lobbyiste pour certains promoteurs liés à ce développement de Pierrefonds-Ouest. Petit conflit d’intérêt ici…

Autre lacune majeure: l’emplacement du projet. Pourquoi venir bouleverser un écosystème fragile et briser la ceinture verte du Grand Montréal alors qu’il y aurait bien d’autres secteurs de Pierrefonds qui gagneraient à être densifiés? Le communiqué de Projet Montréal sur le sujet résume très bien la situation:

«Le projet Pierrefonds Ouest prévoit détruire un espace naturel de la superficie du mont Royal. Il s’agit de la plus grande destruction de terres agricoles dans la région métropolitaine depuis des décennies. De plus, la construction de plus de près de 6000 unités de logement dans un secteur très mal desservi par le transport en commun ne fera qu’aggraver les problèmes de congestion dans l’Ouest de l’île. Peut-on vraiment imaginer 10 000 nouveaux véhicules sur les autoroutes 20 et 40? […] Il y a un grand potentiel de développement dans le cœur de Pierrefonds; il y a de nombreux terrains vagues et de stationnement qui pourraient être développés en plein centre-ville. C’est d’abord sur ces terrains qu’il faudrait travailler plutôt que de créer une deuxième ville aux abords de l’arrondissement.»

D’ailleurs, lorsque M. Coderre affirme que ce projet sera «exemplaire», il faut se demander par rapport à quoi. Exemplaire par rapport à des secteurs résidentiels de faible densité en banlieue? Peut-être, mais certainement pas aussi exemplaire qu’un quartier à moyenne densité qui permettrait de faire disparaître d’immenses stationnements de centres commerciaux plutôt que des terres agricoles.

Bref, on en vient à se demander si ce mégaprojet mérite vraiment de voir le jour. Chose certaine, il mériterait d’être débattu ouvertement plutôt que derrière des portes closes…

Audiomux V2 Turns Your iPad, iPhone into the Ultimate Plug-in

audiomux

Audiomux already changed how we use our iPhones and iPads. Out: juggling cables and audio interfaces just to record an app. In: using apps seamlessly on your computer via just a Lightning or (30-pin) Dock cable.

Well, if that didn’t make you interested in plugging your iPad into your DAW, this should. Using an app as a synth or effect on iOS is now about to be as easy as adding a plug-in — even on Windows.

Audiomux isn’t the only game in town. Apple announced this month at its developer conference that was baking some basic functionality into iOS for routing audio to a connected computer. What Apple calls “Inter-Device Audio” will turn your iOS gadget into a USB 2.0 audio class-compliant device – meaning it’ll appear as an audio interface on any computer, without installing a driver. It also mutes system sounds over that connection, so an alert won’t screw up your audio. But the new feature supports stereo output only, so it’s only useful for recording apps. And it requires iOS 9 – so it’s not out yet.

Audiomux already does more than that, and Audiomux 2 adds icing on the top.

Fundamentally, Audiomux lets you ditch the audio interface and integrate your iOS gadget via a single cable. It works with output – so you can record, or make samples, or add effects on your computer. It works with input – round-trip, even, so you can add iOS effects to projects you’re working on via your computer. And it works with multiple apps and even multiple devices, making iOS tools part of your studio rather than just the thing you use to distract yourself while waiting at a bus terminal.

Now, the power features:

VST and AU plug-ins. You can now add Audiomux support as a plug-in, so a synth or effect app on your iPad is the same as one on your computer – just with touch support and extra processing power.

IAA and Audiobus integration. By supporting Inter App Audio and Audiobus, you can use Audiomux with your favorite apps.

Mixing. IAA and Audiobus also integrate a mixer so it’s easier to keep track of volume, muting, and monitoring. There are send channels, too, so you can easily route apps and effects. In short, Audiomux is as much a centralized mixer as it is a tool for connecting to the computer – and using it means that using all those apps feels almost like having a studio full of gear attached to a mixer.

Windows support. Oh, yeah, all of this is no longer limited to Mac users – Windows works too (Windows 7 or later). And OS X support still works back to OS X 10.7. (I’m sorry, to anyone sticking with 10.6 – if you want the latest and greatest, it’s time to upgrade.)

You can grab Audiomux in a US$9.99 bundle with the also-essential Midimux. (I’ve been using that to sequence outboard gear, in fact.)

We’ll have a video tutorial or two in July, so stay tuned. In the meantime, there’s a great new guide to get you started:

Mad Zach Has Tips on Finger Drumming, Production, and His Free Live Pack

All those pads – it took virtuoso finger drummer Mad Zach to take advantage of them.

Mad Zach’s five free Drum Racks accompany today’s release of Ableton Live 9.2. Since he, frankly, makes most of us look bad with his agile use of the Push hardware, I wanted CDM to talk to him more about what he’s doing. He joins us to share some tips for live performance, production, DJing, and more.

64 Pad Lab by Mad Zach

Can you talk a bit about finger drumming? How do you practice / how do you stay nimble?

For me, finger drumming is a chance to truly play electronic music like an instrument. It lets me break out of the confines of linear music programming to infuse something alive into the sinews of my music. One of the things that interests me the most about it is the balance between sound design and performance technique. Because of how much power there is in great sound design and minimalism, there’s a lot of room to do something incredible which is actually quite simple.

In terms of staying nimble, I treat it just like I would guitar or drums — practice all the time. I don’t really do any special finger exercises other than jamming all the time and trying new stuff/patterns as I discover them.

You’re using Live 9.2 now. Anything you’re using in the upgrade (apart from the bits you added)?

I’m typically one of these people who never upgrades, but since they added the new 64 pad mode, it made sense. I also really appreciate the tuner. Other than that, it seems pretty much the same to me… which I like :)

Congrats on the pack; it’s really great work. How might people extend it in their own work?

The packs are really flexible, they can be used for finger drumming with a 64 grid, or also just loaded into a project and used for production. Additionally, all the waves have been organized so you can just sift through the one-shots and find something interesting to kick off an idea, or flesh out something you already have. Lots of sick stabs, bass noises, drums, atmospheres, etc. I often drag the waves directly into my timeline and chop them up directly, or drop them into a dedicated midi track with a sampler, and play them on the keyboard.

Okay, so that’s your pack. How might users go about organizing their own packs for performance and studio inspiration?

I usually like to start out pretty experimentally, just recording 30 minutes or so of different sounds – whether it’s synth noises, or sample manipulation, resampling, etc. I’ll set up my hardware in different ways and play around. Once I have a nice chunk of audio, I bring it into a Drum Rack and move the start point around looking for cool bits. The drums are a bit of a different story because they are more specific.

So, in my own music making, I like to use Ableton and Push alongside other drum machines, too – both hardware and software, so ranging from NI Maschine to the KORG volca sample and Jomox Xbase09. I’m curious, do you combine the Live workflow with any other tools? If so, how?

Yes, I’m a hardware freak. Mostly I just use Live for recording the audio and putting it in a Drum Rack. I’m always running MIDI out to my gear, processing the signal through a bunch of pedals, resampling it, etc. One of my favorite sounds in this selection of packs I made by chopping up an a capella, pitching it down, running it out through the Moog Moogerfooger Ring Modulator [MF-102] with some overdrive, resampling that back in, layering it with a long 808 kick and putting those together back through the Moogerfooger Cluster Flux. Then I pitched that down, reversed it, and booom, my favorite new bass sound!

zachstudio

And how do you go about DJing? Are you working with any hybrid live/DJ sets?

I do a hybrid live/DJ set that fuses my original productions with finger drumming sections. After much experimentation, I’ve come to that balance because I think there are certain things about DJing your tunes which are really good, and expected, while finger drumming offers something new and exciting for people. By fusing the two, I’m able to have the best time, and also give people a nice balance of what they expect, while surprising them with what they don’t.

Free Live 9.2 Arrives; Here’s What’s New – Including Powerful API Changes

live92

A free update to Ableton Live, version 9.2, is now available and out of beta. We covered this in some detail before:
Live 9.2 Answers Your Warp, Automation, Tuner, and Pad Wishes
Hands on with the Ableton Live 9.2 Tuner [Video]

But today, in addition to the release, we get a closer look at the free Mad Zach sample pack included to help you exploit all 64 pads of Ableton’s Push hardware — plus some insider details on changes to the Live API that will impact power users and add-ons for Live.

First, let’s review what 9.2 adds. It’s some subtle stuff, but details I think a lot of you were anticipating:

  • Better latency compensation. Lower latency for plug-ins and Max for Live, plus latency-compensated automation.
  • Warping sounds and works better. Downbeat detection is better (phew!) and you can Warp Selection for the first time. Also, warping is more precise and punchier (in the better-sounding Complex and Complex Pro modes).
  • There’s a tuner. Hardly earth-shaking, but good that’s finally standard – whether you’re using a guitar or synth.
  • Max 7. The latest-and-greatest Max is now baked into Live – and that’s a great thing, given the cool stuff Max 7 includes (a lot of it waiting on this very Ableton update).
  • Push is better at aftertouch. Push harder. Aftertouch implementation itself is improved, and it’s supported in more factory sound patches, too.
  • Push touch strip does mod. You can now add modulation with the Push touch strip – maybe even more useful than pitch bend (already supported).
  • Push has a 64-pad layout. Whereas previously triggering samples and such split the Push layout into a separate step sequencer and pads, now you can use all 64 pads if you choose.

And, the bonus: to exploit those 64 pads, you get a free pack from Mad Zach pre-loaded with samples to try out. He walks you through that video here:

It’s called “The Lab,” and the sound pack and accompanying video walkthrough help you work with those 64 pads (at least if you haven’t already lined up four MPCs in your sets), sound design, and production.

There’s more in Live 9.2 though, beyond just the features Ableton announced today. The developers at Isotonik tell us they’re excited about new improvements to the API. In fact, it brings some of the first major Live Object Model updates since Max for Live was released half a decade ago.

Say wha?

Well, the “LOM” is the means by which add-ons built by users and third-party developers in Max for Live interact with Live itself.

If you’re a hard-core Live geek, this means more power for you to create new tools. But even if you aren’t, it means that those add-ons will be able to do things they couldn’t previously.

And some of these changes came from – well, you. You users asked developers like Isotonik and the Crashologists team for changes. They asked Ableton for those changes. And Ableton – as of today – delivers.

I’ll cover the first round of add-ons separately, but here are some highlights under the hood:

  • Load a clip into RAM, right from the API (for greater performance
  • Move around playhead positions without losing sync with Live
  • Integrate more tightly with hardware
  • Set loops to resolution as fine as 1/32 notes (not just quarter notes)

If you’re interested, we can go into more detail.

But all in all, this looks like a good update – and it makes me excited to see what’s next from Ableton in terms of Live itself, and support for external hardware.
