updated 10:55 pm EDT, Wed July 16, 2014

Natural acoustic iPhone dock Eight now available

A new acoustic amplifier has been released for iPhone, composed of a natural wood construction. The Eight is hand sanded and hand oiled, making the wood structure the center of the design. Made of walnut and Birdseye maple, the iPhone dock features a built-in microphone, and its speakers are inspired by the shape of an ear, with conically-shaped chambers that produce aesthetically pleasing sound. The iPhone is accessible for use while in the dock, and its built-in slot includes a Lightning cable that can charge an iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. Priced at $300, the Eight wooden dock is available internationally.



SmartScore NoteReader music-reading app now available

Musitek Corporation has announced the release of its first music-reading app, SmartScore NoteReader, now available for iOS. SmartScore NoteReader is a derivative of SmartScore X2: Musitek's music-scanning software for desktop users. The app allows for the capturing of multiple pages of musical score (including PDF files) and music playback through their device. The unlocked version of the app, NoteReader Premier, allows Smart Score, IMI, MusicXML and image files to be sent to any email address, or to cloud storage.



The affiliated free SmartScore player can open files from NoteReader, and all recognized musical symbols appear on-screen for all app variations. NoteReader includes fully controllable playback, with instrumental sounds for each part and/or contrapuntal voice able to be selected. Drum tracks and a Karaoke view with scrolling lyrics and a bouncing ball are also featured. SmartScore NoteReader is free to download, with the Premium version available as an in-app purchase of $10.
