The iPhone and the iPod touch are marvels of technology. I’m constantly amazed at what they can do. I was recently talking to Jordan Rudess (of Dream Theater) about the iPhone and its potential for music. He mentioned a new iPhone app called Bebot that he’s been working with. Check out this YouTube video for a great demonstration of Bebot.
What’s amazing is that some of the technology in Bebot was first seen in the Continuum, a very high-end MIDI controller. While Bebot isn’t exactly the same, the fact that it’s $1.99 is staggering.
The iPhone is clearly maturing. With people like Jordan helping developers understand what musicians need, the platform will continue to grow in new and unique ways. As it does, you can count on Max OS X Audio devoting more time to new musical instruments—iPhone and iPod touch.
