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:

  3. […] So what of the MPC-500? With that cheap-looking screen and the four ‘missing’ pads it seems very, very expensive at $1,299 list ($799 street). There are certainly plenty of cheaper and arguably more powerful ways to make music on the move – I use the incredible Bhajis Loops software for Palm, and there are options for PSP and DS. But the vast majority of MPC haters are people (like myself until a few months ago) who have never used one for any length of time. If you get a chance, give one a try – there’s something great about a device that has matured and evolved over almost 20 years and is now as close to a real musical instrument as any piece of software-in-a-box has a right to be.
