iPad iPhone: Prophet 64 running on C64 app (working)

Yes it works! Can't wait till this app is updated for the iPad native resolution and Bluetooth Keyboard support is added. I got this running on iDOS also.

PPG Wave 2.2 Synthesizer "Modulator"

iPad iPhone - Beat Twirl (Chop Samples)

Beat Twirl is a "beat slicer" app. The app lets you analyze existing sounds on detect their rhythm with its note onset algorithms. With Beat Twirl you can work with drum loops and rhythm patterns, easily enhancing them with additional percussion sound, or create new patterns.

With Beat Twirl you can:
  • Change the tempo (time) of drum loops without changing the pitch.
  • Analyze percussion patterns and find the underlying timing.
  • Mix-in additional percussion sounds, or replace the original sounds
  • Export single beats from a sound file.

iPad DOSPad CoreMidi Control PS2 controller Interface

CoreMidiControl is a simple AVR microprocessor based project for hooking up PS2 controller with iOS device that support CoreMidi. Apple iOS doesn't provide support for attaching game controllers directly into iDevices. This project overcomes the limitation by implementing a hardware device that pretends to be a class compliant MIDI device. Controller movements and button presses are then transferred via MIDI messages and converted at the receiving end back to controller events.
Included in the project is a sample application for iPad that displays controller thumbstick movements and button states. I've also included a patched version of DOSpad that let's you play DOS games with PS2 controller via joystick or arrow pad emulation.
Although the iOS API supports multiple players (controllers) the hardware part doesn't. However, adding support for additional controllers, mouse etc should be trivial.
