One of the most promising tools of the last view years – the platform independent DAW Bitwig Studio has eventually been released yesterday. It is available for MacOS, Windows and Linux. Bitwig is a Berlin based company, originally founded by former Ableton developers. The relation to Ableton is something that put the expectations of Bitwig to a comparative high level in the field of DAWs.
We’re gonna check out Bitwig in depth during the next few days and let you know what we think. In the meantime: get yourself a demo run for free. Since the save and export feature is disabled in the normal demo version, we recommend to go for a trial license, which requires registration. Head over to https://www.bitwig.com/en/account/register.html and give the next generation of platform independent DAWs a serious go.
Bitwig‘s press division just released the official release date for Bitwig Studio: March 26, 2014…
It looks like Bitwig Studio will be available from the very beginning aswell for Windows, as for Mac, as for Linux.
You are using an iPhone 4 and you coincidentally updated to iOS 6.1.3, which cannot be jailbroken at the moment. Since you saved the SHSH blobs you think you can restore by doing a replay APTicket attack with TinyUmbrella or Cydia. Sadly iTunes shows errors like 1600, 1601, 1602, 1604 etc.
If you have an iPhone 4s or iPhone5 you can stop reading here. This article will not be able to help you. The iDevices with an A5 CPU or later cannot be downgraded with replay attacks at the moment. Continue reading →
There is a a lot of fuss going around the latest Retina equipped Mac Book Pro’s. Looks like the MBPs can be delivered with either a Samsung display or a Sharp/LG. The problem is: the Sharp/LG displays seems to produce ghosts on the screen. Apple says there might be “image persistance” in some rare cases, but did not admit that it is related to the type of display used. Anyway the Apple discussions forum provides a huge thread.
So if you wanna make sure that you don’t have a Sharp/LG display in your MBP just type this line: Continue reading →
Good news for the App-a-holics among us. A specific audiostreaming protocol is to come to the iOS platform. It’s named Audiobus.
While formerly the export to the cloud or via iTunes to the Host-PC/Mac was required, now using Audiobus we can stream audio from one app to another. Release date is december, 10th and the pricetag is named with 10US$ according the german tech news Heise.de.
Several apps will immediately receive updates to support Audiobus, among these are:
Funkbox (audio input)
JamUp XT and JamUp Pro XT (efx)
Loopy and Loopy HD (audio input and output)
MultiTrack DAW (audio output)
NLog Midi Synth and NLog Midi Synth Pro (audio input, efx and output)
Rebirth (audio input)
SoundPrism Pro (audio input)
Sunrizer Synth (audio input
More apps supporting the Audiobus protocol to come, as Apple is said to have this protocol officially allowed. For developers an SDK is available. Check the vids for some more insights… enjoy fellas…

In his latest book “Raising generation Tech – Preparing your Children for a Media-Fueled World”, Jim Taylor, psychologist explores how nowadays technologies shape the lives of our children.
He argues that many parents as digital immigrants should think twice before they use media technologies to have their children – the digital natives – entertained.
According to Amazon.com “The essential message from Raising Generation Tech is that excessive or unguided exposure to popular culture and technology is not good for children.”
Well, but is that really something the people didn’t know before Dr. Taylors book release? Or the other way round: does Dr. Taylor really expect the entertainment media addicted people who themselves grew up in front of the TVs to read his book to change the way they raise their children?
Taylor’s intention is great and we think many people second his thoughts, but we are rather not entirely convinced by his strategy…
This Top Ten List is the MetaParadigma’s Editor’s choice of Apps available solely thru Cydia. Cydia is the alternative software distribution platform available to users, who have jailbroken their iDevices.
So you may ask: why jailbreaking anyway? Ain’t there enough software on the App Store?
Well, let’s answer this with another question: do you wanna have a fancy Gameboy like smartfone, for which Apple decides what allowed to be installed do you wanna have a handy pocket computer which you can configure completely?
Checking the site’s current access statistics shows a kinda interesting result: many unique visitors come from California (as half as much as are coming from whole Germany). We wanna take the time to say thanks from Berlin, guys ;-)
