well....

this app is AMAZING. i've been addicted since i installed it a few days ago. been jamming a lot with my brother who lives in japan.

the way it works is it has a bunch of little preset instruments for drums, bass, melody, very similar to figure if you've used that. it also has microphone/line in. and then it has an 8 part looper that is continuously looping, with a really long history of buffers. i would break it down into 3 hierarchies:

1. Layer, the most basic building block. when you record anything, it gets added to the layer pool, which has 8 spaces.

2. Riff, which is a grouping of layers. each time you record a new layer, it creates a new riff.

3. Jam, the equivalent of a room. Each jam has a history of all the riffs the room has made. you can go back days and days into the memory, and supposedly, with the $4.50 subscription, you have infinite history.

A really cool thing is the FX section. FX can combine up to all of the 8 layers into a new riff. you apply the effects in real time with an XY pad, or you can do it from the parameter page. Usually when i enter a jam, i will rearrange whatever terrible EDM loop is going and try to turn it into something better. You can also change the BPM which also changes the pitch of the riff as if it was tape.

Endless is basically a really efficient workflow packaged into a very immediate and reactive app, that so far has worked very well. there is a lot of potential for other features. You can make a jam and invite people, but it would be cool if it functioned like a multiplayer game and you could browse a list of a bunch of public jams. Right now I think the public rooms are kind of a set number of categories that are all pretty cheese pandora EDM chillout/lofi beats to study to aesthetics, but the app itself has tons of potential.

the way you have to commit your ideas to print and move on really encourages a rapid generation of ideas.

i highly recommend installing it. it's free on mobile. i will post a link here to my dub techno room if anyone wants to come hang out. there is also a chat room.

Tim got cancer. He's a legend. Very tough roll of the dice. I think there is a gofundme if you're into that kind of thing. 

ooof sorry to hear that. 😞

yeah definitely adds a different context to this whole thing. it’s easy to laugh at a business that seemed a little bit off to begin with but worth remembering there are people behind it, and definitely terrible that this is the thing that caused it to ultimately go under. on the upside at least they hit their funding goal pretty quickly. in any case best wishes for the guy and his family

yeah. seemed like they had a decent user base. the go-fund-me says anything over the goal is going to help support the people who got laid off from the company. that's nice. i mean, he's in for a long ride getting this to be normal. the scar tissue alone is going to be a lot to deal with. the change on bodily function is going to be a learning experience. you don't remove your bladder unless you absolutely have to. i'm amazed there was even an option on the table to go forward. he seemed like an energetic guy in all the videos i've watched over the years. so, that should serve him well. gonna be a while until he can hold those kids though.

That's a shocking series of blows to deal with. I wish him a speedy recovery so he can enjoy being a new dad, and continue making great music and software which so many of us love. It's fantastic to see that they have smashed through their fundraising goal already.
