Stumbled upon the Tweet a Sound application the other day, and thought it was pretty interesting. Tweet a Sound is a desktop application, created using Max/MSP, that allows a user to create various 60 second sound clips using the synthesis engine, and once completed, you can upload the sound script to your twitter. The idea is to copy the sound script from twitter, and paste it into your Tweet a Sound application. By doing so, you’re able to decipher the sound of the sound script, and you can play back what other users create. Kind of a nice and creative way to communicate with others. For more information on Tweet a Sound, be sure to visit » sound + design. You can also follow sound + design on » twitter.

The only real news we can see about Live 8 is through their video presentations, which are actually quite good. They go on to talk about their latest and greatest improvements with the application, new partnerships and new specifically-made devices.
I’m just having a hard time really hearing the thunder of the improvements. The upgrade from 6 to 7 was huge, enabling multi-core support, not to mention adding a slew of new add-on instruments for sound design and just plain fun. The new improvements, although great, really, just don’t feel as crazy awesome as the last upgrade.
