JavaFX: A Musical Gathering
By dannycoward on Aug 12, 2009
There's definitely an arc in the adoption of a new technology. From skepticism, to release, the odd stumble, to the evidence of more widespread experimentation, to the first commercial applications.
Indaba Music (from the Zulu indaba: 'gathering') is a collaborative music site, and debuts one of the first commerical applications of JavaFX: the Indaba music console. Currently in alpha, it gives Apple's GarageBand a run for its money, with the ability to lay down multiple music tracks, from prerecorded clips, to those of your own making, to those your friends gave you. Then the fun starts when you start applying musical effects to your composition, and exporting back to your friends.
The Planetarium marks the arrival what is a truly capable and polished online JavaFX media manipulation application, with a special composition which you can download here. (Vocals courtesy of the Janitor).
