    It is unfortunate Grace.

    It seems that both YouTube and Apple are to cracking down on apps that allow downloads of YouTube videos. It would be nice if they provided a way of allowing us to offer the downloading feature without running afoul of the terms of service, but so far they have offered no alternative. 🙁

    Hi Dave,

    Anytune does not currently offer a mode of operation that behaves that way.

    If you have transcribe mode enabled, and have play/pause mapped to the foot pedal, then one tap of the pedal would trigger playback. A second tap would stop playback, and a third would take you back to the start point and trigger playback.

    I can see how your approach might be a nice alternative though. As far as foot pedals are concerned, it can vary with the signals the MIDI device sends. In general, to be the most compatible with the various devices, Anytune operations are trigger (or edge) based as opposed to sustain based. From a keyboard perspective (MIDI or computer keyboard), it is of course possible to detect a key down vs a key up. We aren’t currently planning a feature like this, but if more customers are interested in it we would see what we can do.

    Sean.

    Hi Ed,

    There is no Android version of Anytune at this time. So it’s unaffected. 😉

    We have added a video and some more information here:
    What is Play Next?

    The main thing to do would be to disable automatic app updates on your iPhone/iPad. After doing that you will unfortunately have to manually update your apps.

    You can also make a backup of specific versions of your apps. In iTunes, go to your Library -> Apps and find Anytune. Right-Click -> “Show in Finder” and then backup a copy of the Anytune.ipa file somewhere, so that if you do get updated you can re-install the backed up version.

    Unfortunately there is no real way of selling Anytune for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch outside of the App Store. It is the only legitimate distribution mechanism for apps on iOS devices.

    Excellent. Glad I could help.

    Cheers!

    Hi km,

    If you have the AutoLoop feature enabled, the A and B buttons will be greyed out.

    In the 3.10 and 1.1 release, when auto loop is on, we “locked” the A/B to the marks that were used to set the loop ends. This means that you can more easily adjust the A/B positions for setting up a loop because adjusting the loop adjusts the mark ends and vice versa. Several of our customers asked us for this, as it makes getting the perfect loops easier to setup.

    Having done that, we then found that tapping A or B when in auto loop mode was generally bad because it would then cause the linked mark(s) to accidentally get shifted to the playhead, which is generally not what you want to happen. Since the marks are controlling the loop ends, it made sense to essentially disable the A/B function.

    So if you disable the Autoloop feature, you should see the A/B come back to life, and work as you were used to from before.

    Hope that helps.

    Sean.

    Thanks for confirming.

    At the moment, Anytune does not support that feature.

    You are not the first to request it, but we have not had the time to build it as yet. I am not sure when we might manage to get it implemented. Sorry I don’t have much more to say on this topic at the moment.

    I think I understand what you are asking for now. You’d like to hear the audio when you’re scrubbing while paused?

    in reply to: Play Next/Skip Marks #503 |

    Hi,

    Yes, Anytune has definitely gotten a bit bloated and as a result has lost a bit of focus, and gained complexity.

    1) Skip Marks are kind of like a poor mans audio editor. If you want to skip a section of a song, you can turn a mark into a skip mark, and the playhead will jump from the skip mark to the mark that follows it. You can change a mark into a skip mark by going into the Marks editor, and selecting the top row (which will show Audiomark – Position Mark) with an arrow. Tap that, and you can turn the mark into a skip mark (or back to a position mark).

    Play Next is meant primarily for live performance. The idea is that you can break a song up into loops (either using loop marks, or regular marks + auto loop). Then, when you are playing the song back, you can have Anytune move to a new loop anywhere in the song once it reaches the end of the loop that is currently playing. We are working on a video that shows the potential for the feature. It is really designed to work well with MIDI or Airturn type foot pedals or controllers.

    So you’re almost right in your interpretation, except that Play Next is meant to be adjusted manually by choosing the loop that you want to “play next” after the current loop completes. You can do that by tapping the mark in the marks list.

    Play Next can be activated by selecting the Marks tab, and tapping the icon that looks like a circle with some dots and the playhead triangle in it.

    Hi – is there something in particular that you need help with?

    You can scrub the audio by swiping your finger on the large waveform to the left and the right, or you can drag the playhead using your finger. If you want to quickly jump somewhere, just tap in the small waveform and the playhead will go to that spot.

    Hi David,

    Unfortunately home sharing is not something that Apple exposes to thirdparty apps on the iPhone or iPad. So you can see and play the shared songs using the Music app, but Anytune does not have a way to see the songs from the share.
    You have a couple of choices.
    You can sync the tracks you want to play with Anytune using iTunes to your iPad. That is probably the easiest, since it is straightforward to sync to your iPad, and Anytune provides ‘transparent’ import of songs when they are in the music library on your iPad.
    If you subscribe to iTunes Match, then Apple will effectively allow you access to your entire music library on your iPad without requiring a sync via iTunes. With iTunes Match, you will need to go into the Music app and specifically download the tracks you want to play before Anytune can see them. Again, this is an Apple limitation – third party apps cannot initiate a download of a song from iTunes Match.
    There are other options like Dropbox that could also work, but you would need to put the song files into Dropbox first. I think iTunes sync would be preferable to that; especially if you have a large library.
    Hope that helps!
    Sean.

    Hi Lyle,
    Thanks for clarifying the steps to get the audio quality mode to change, and for the debugging offer… pretty sure we’ll have it fixed in our next update.

    The EQ preset does not adjust the pitch – The +24 semi  in the description is a reminder that the isolate bass EQ preset requires +24 semi to work at it’s best. It would be nice to tie the two together, I admit.

    Cheers!
    Sean.

    Hi Lyle,

    It sound like perhaps you aren’t in HQ audio quality mode? You need to be in HQ mode in order to pitch up 24 semi. 
    Try going into settings and changing to HQ mode. Note, that sometimes in 3.9.6 the audio quality mode won’t change properly (this is fixed in our next release). If it doesn’t appear to change (i.e.: you see basic or pro in the status area rather than HQ), then set to HQ in settings, force quit Anytune and relaunch it, and it will be in HQ mode. To quit an app in iOS7, double tap the home button to bring up the app switcher, and then swipe the app you want to quit towards the top of screen.
    We haven’t added an eliminate bass preset, no. We were mainly focused on helping people hear the bass line, rather than getting rid of it. You can certainly give it a go – EQ’s are fun. 😉 The only trick being that the isolate bass preset is designed to work with the +24 semitone pitch up – so the ranges are going to be off. You might try starting with the suppress rhythm guitar preset, and working down from there?
    Best of luck!
    Sean.
