Microbe Music Studio

Microbe is an all-in-one electronic music studio for PalmOS© Handhelds.

It takes advantage of the computing power of the ARM-powered devices and of the advanced sound manipulation features offered by the OS 5.0 to generate live, cool, synthetic, or sampled sounds. You are a DJ and want a tool to generate fill-ins, drum patterns, cool synth sounds, or sampled jingles? Do you like composing music while commuting? Do you think that the end of laptop music is coming soon - an omen to a new era of palmtop musicians? The Microbe is made for you. Enjoy!

Microbe runs on any ARM-powered device running PalmOS© 5.0, and supporting the standard PalmSource Sound APIs. It has been especially tested (and developed) on the Tungsten T Series. High resolution is not required, however, Microbe will look hotter and better on a hi-res screen. The support for Sony Cliés handheld is done through the installation of a hack emulating PalmOS© 5.0 Sound API.

Full-time, I'm an artist living and working in Japan, in my free time I like to fiddle with old tech, especially if it can be used for writing text! Check out my blog here: https://artvsentropy.wordpress.com/category/retro-tech/
