There are many reasons to love and be excited be Andre Michelle's Hobnox AudioTool Demo. Many of them were explained by Peter at CDM when he covered the Beta a month ago. My favourite feature? If you don't touch it for a while, the lights go out, leaving the LEDs twinkling in the twilight. In case you haven't seen it, it's the first teaser for a modular Reason-style music environment, working entirely in Flash in your browser. At the moment there are 2x303s, 1x909, 8xstompboxes and a mixer. An 808 will be along in a few weeks, and then interesting things will no doubt start to happen. Love the way it can be enhanced and tweaked constantly - there's no monlithic application to download. There's a nice discussion of the merits of luxurious 3D interfaces over at Analog Industries, where Chris has announced Dubstation 1.5, which looks beautiful: Commenter Tom: "IMO could have done without the fake jacks and 'table top' background" Designer Chris: "Those jacks aren't fake."
