Finally, a Stunning Music App That Never Plays The Same Thing Twice

Finally, a Stunning Music App That Never Plays The Same Thing Twice

One website constantly turning out advanced, eye-opening products is Kickstarter. Many of the best products are consistently new programs and tech innovations, including one new music app called Flux. This app lets users listen to an endless stream of original compositions, put together in random order by your phone. A completely new approach to music, this revolutionary music app may have a big effect on what we listen to, and how we listen to it, in the future.

    Benefits:

    Infinite Combinations

    Flux is a new concept and a new approach to music entirely. The music app takes music loops with similar characteristics and randomly matches them with sound effects, beats, and instruments that could go well together. By never playing the same loops and effects together twice, this unique music app can potentially craft infinite combinations of sound effects and music. This feature could ultimately make Flux a massively appealing music app.

    Original Lengths

    Since Flux uses many different types of sounds and music loops, it has the potential to obliterate our perceptions of how long a song should be. Endless varying blends could potentially play in all sorts of lengths, both long and short. This is an experimental step, at a time when most songs are 3 to 5 minutes long. This could mean Flux might eventually have a massive impact on the music industry.

      Infinite Graphic Options

      Flux pairs constantly original compositions, with a highly intelligent graphic system, which also never plays the same visuals twice. This means, to go along with new music, there’s also the potential for infinite graphic presentations.

      Save Feature

      While the app plays original configurations of graphics and music every second you listen, it also includes a favorite feature, allowing you to save songs. By creating a playlist, users can revisit songs the app created that piqued their interest. This means users can both experience original music, and replay songs they like.

        Social Media Integration

        This innovative music app also includes several social media integration features. This app makes it easy to share your favorite original music, and helps you connect to other Flux users. In the future, this might even mean you could listen to other user’s favorite songs.

          Drawbacks:

          Only One Artist

          While the features of the app have the potential to revolutionize the way we think about music, unfortunately so far the app only includes music from one artist. The app’s creator, legendary guitarist Adrian Belew, is so far the only recording artist involved. While Adrian’s accomplishments are far reaching, it would be exciting to see other recording artists contribute. The Kickstarter page alludes to Adrian recording all sorts of instruments and sounds, but the sounds offered by the app could still be limited. There’s no telling where the app might go once it is released, but it would be nice to eventually see compositions from all different genres, cultures, and talents.

          Limited Lyrics

          Another feature Flux is lacking is a wide variety of lyrics to go with the music. This music app’s Kickstarter page hints that new features are likely in the future, but for now Flux only plays a handful of lyrics along with the music. This is something that might lead the app to be more of a cult classic.

            All in all, this music app shows off some potentially revolutionary features. The ability to always have a new song at your fingertips is exciting, and puts consumers truly in control of their music experience. On the other hand, the limited scope of artists and lyrics, may stop some consumers from taking the plunge. Hopefully, this music app grows the base of sounds that the app uses to create compositions, so a wider demographic of listeners will adopt such a ground breaking approach to music. The app itself is an incredible source for new media and inspiration, and is likely to quickly be a favourite for artists and others looking for inspiration. The ability to constantly expose yourself to completely fresh media is a powerful way to keep new ideas coming. Though the app’s price has not been released, the Kickstarter page suggests that this app is meant for everyone, likely hinting at a low price point. The app will be available in Spring 2015.

            8 Replacements for Google Notebook

            8 Replacements for Google Notebook

            Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

            1. Zoho Notebook
              If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
            2. Evernote
              The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
            3. Net Notes
              If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
            4. i-Lighter
              You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
            5. Clipmarks
              For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
            6. UberNote
              If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
            7. iLeonardo
              iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
            8. Zotero
              Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

            I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

            Advertising

            In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
