I recently wrote an article about five of my favorite iOS music app developers. Christoper Rice (Holderness Media) was an easy choice for that list, based on his excellent resume of effects apps (Echo Pad, Swoopster, Stereo Designer, and Crystalline).

In my most recent post, I talked about my five favorite developers of iOS music apps. In a nice bit of timing, one of those developers, Igor Vasiliev, has just released a new app, AltiSpace.
