New IMN Podcast and Turning Your iPad into a Cassette Recorder

The new IMN podcast is up - download it or listen at the site or on WFYI HD2, Thursdays at 4pm and 10pm.

I'm a fan of a few iPad audio apps with retro appeal - like the Rebirth synth from Propellerheads and the Korg iMS-20 - but I have to shake my head a little bit at the new Tascam app for its iPad Portastudio. Complete with cassette-like transport. Really, though, the only reason it doesn't appeal to me is the lack of a decent mic to use it. That's not really Tascam's fault, though - the new iOS edition apparently reduced enough power to peripherals than good mics simply can't be used with power from the USB bus.

Well, that and the cassette interface. Recording on cassettes was not fun, and I don't want to go back there. I don't want to edit tape with razor blades anymore either, and working to keep my Model T up doesn't interest me, either.
