Tango Remote can control the music playing on a users' iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, giving the user the freedom to access their music remotely.

    The Tango Remote app works on any two devices that have the application installed. One works as the player and the other serves as the remote.

    Tango Remote Music Player HD gives users an easy way to perform not only the regular tasks that are typically associated with a remote device but also offers some unique extras. For example, whereas an iPod stops when a playlist is finished, the Tango Remote app will continue on to the next playlist and the next. It's optional of course. The user has full control of all the functions and can look at the song queue to see what tunes are lined up to play, or what was that last song that played, remotely of course.

    * Access and control all iPod music remotely
    * Search or browse music library via artist, song title, album or genre
    * Just select a song and it starts playing
    * View entire song queue, not just album playing.

  • E2D Introduces Songvoo 1.0 For IPhone And IPod Touch

    28 Aug 2009, 19:06 by musicdish



    Hollywood, California - Elements2Dance (E2D) today is proud to introduce songvoo(TM) 1.0, their new iPod app and music companion for iPhone and iPod Touch. Developed specifically to leverage the iPhone's unique capabilities and interface, songvoo uses the entire display for the song title and artist of the current playing song. Users also can choose stylish themes to match their taste and lifestyle. songvoo serves as a great iPod companion for both casual user and music professionals alike, or anyone who has a large, constantly changing music collection to stay on top of.

    http://e2d.org/songvoo

    "I developed songvoo originally to fill a need for my own enormous and constantly growing music collection." said Jokton Strealy, resident DJ of E2D. "The included iPod app was not enough for my needs because the text seemed too small, and song names and artists appeared got cut off for lack of space because the album cover art is so big. I also felt that the interface needed to be more fun and look stylish. Apple opening up version 3.0 of the iPhone OS allows so much more freedom. Although created for music professionals, songvoo allows for extensive user customization which will appeal to a wider audience."

    Perfect for jogging, driving, and many other active diversions, the large, easy-to-read display shows at-a-glance exactly what song is playing and who the artist is. songvoo will look great in a car-mount or speaker dock. It even responds to all external remote controls like next song, previous song, pause, and play, including control from Apple's earbud remote.

    songvoo features intuitive, yet incredibly useful controls and work great no matter what the users orientation is to the screen, such as when the device is in an armband, or even when driving. Just tap once to play or pause, double-tap the screen to go to the next track, or go to the previous track with a triple-tap. songvoo also shows elapsed and remaining time for the currently playing track, along with a slider that can be used to skip sections or replay a certain part.

    Users can choose a new playlist (or songs) from their iPod library at any time, as well as choose music in the iPod app if they prefer, and bounce back and forth between apps with no problem. Additionally, it is possible to personalize songvoo in the settings application. Change font, colors, background image, or enable the shake to randomize feature and set these automatically.

Plug in a microphone, arm a track, record, and repeat. FourTrack works with the iPhone built-in microphone, a headset mic, or an iPod touch with a third-party mic and headphones. WiFi sync allows FourTrack recordings to be downloaded to any desktop computer with a browser. Tracks can then be loaded into any recording software (DAW) to continue working on songs. FourTrack is developed by Sonoma Wire Works, makers of RiffWorks guitar recording software, and by The Retronyms, makers of Recorder, the top selling (single track) recording application for the iPhone. Introductory price: $9.99.

    What is a Four Track Recorder?
    Stereo tape recorders record two tracks at a time on a cassette. A four-track recorder allows you to record one track at a time while listening to the other three. This allows you to record a guitar part, then add a vocal part, then add a harmony, and so on. The Beatles recorded several albums using only four tracks. Four-track cassette recorders were the first affordable multi-track recorders for home musicians. Multitrack recording software, like GarageBand and Pro Tools, allow you to record many tracks, but the principle is the same. FourTrack (the iPhone app) gives you the simplicity of the old-school cassette four-track in an affordable and convenient package. With FourTrack in your pocket, you can record music anywhere at the moment of inspiration.

    Requirements:
    Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch (2nd Generation).
    Requires iPhone 2.0 software update. iPod touch requires a third party microphone (see developer website for recommendations).
