Chelsea Canales's curator insight, February 19, 5:19 PM

Launching the music area in YouTube was a very good idea. Although people just look for music on their own terms on YT, this section can help organize it.

 

This is smart on YouTube's part, as long as it is put under peoples' recommendations.

 

I would say this is a major resource for audio professionals, considering it is all about streaming and another platform for public streams.

Chelsea Canales's curator insight, February 19, 5:35 PM

Audiobus, ‘Missing Cable’ Between iOS Apps, Launches December 10 | Evolver.fm

Audiobus, ‘Missing Cable’ Between iOS Apps, Launches December 10 | Evolver.fm | Music & social media | Scoop.it

Based on our understanding, Audiobus will let one app identify the songs playing in another app, let you sing autotuned nonsense into one app and record it with another, scrobble what you’re hearing across multiple apps, and all sorts of cool stuff. A future version should even let music apps on different iOS devices play audio to each other in real time, allowing any app to allow people to play music together using apps on different devices (a la Apple Garageband).
