Louie Iturzaeta writes to say PSP Rhythm has now hit version 6.0 with lots of new features. It’s pretty incredible to watch this application grow. I know we have some readers using this, so here’s what’s new:

  1. New user interface with programming grid, graphical knobs for parameters, oscilloscope.
  2. Sample Loading from Pattern Mode with up to 1000 sample folders with 1000 samples each.
  3. New skin format and support for up to 1000 skins.
  4. Mute/Solo function.
  5. Export Pattern and load it back as a sample.
  6. Bass Line synth reprogrammed.
  7. Time Stretch Effect.
  8. High Pass Filter Effect.
  9. Lots of bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Here’s the new UI, which has a definite hardware feel to it:

Of course, if you don’t like that skin, you can download or make your own. This is a PSP Rhythm 5 skin, but I enjoy the reference to FL Studio for Windows. It’s like Fruity Loops to go:
