Smule and Khush

The most innovated music software in the past few years has not come from Ableton or Steinberg. It’s come on iOS from Smule and Khush. Although you may not make a full on slick track using these apps the technology and wowness behind LaDiDa, Ocarina, Magic Fiddle and Madpad is great. The video above explaining that the two companies are getting together is very nerdy. That nerd factor is good though because when nerds and art mix I’m happy. I hope they add pro features (midi, audio export) to all of their apps.

“Smule, makers of such fine musically-tuned iOS apps as Ocarina, Magic Piano, and I Am T-Pain, have just announced their intentions to acquire Khush, the equally music-minded company behind LaDiDa (you sing, it generates a beat) and Songify (you sing / talk / cough / howl, it bends the tune into a song). Wonder-Twin powers, activate!” – Techcrunch

LaDiDa

LaDiDa is Microsoft Songsmith for the iPhone. It’s part amazing, part fun and part stupid. Here’s a song I made for my wife using LaDiDa:

“Julie is a putz. She drives me crazy she’s a putz. She’s got a black cat and he’s cool but Julie is a putz. She’s a putz. She’s a putz. She’s a putz. Yeah. She’s a putz. She’s a putz. She’s a putz. Yeah. She’s a putz. She’s a putz. She’s a putz. Yeah. She’s a putz. She’s a putz. She’s a putz. Yeah. Julie she drives me crazy because she’s a putz.” – Oliver Chesler
