Cool iphone music apps for boring times.. Know any?

Post by Rabalder » Fri Feb 10, 2012 9:19 am

Just got my first iphone..
Not really into games and all that normal stuff.

Been looking at the maschine app from NI. Any good?
I dont like garage band.
Animoog is pretty cool.

Any other musical apps worth checking out?

iMaschine is fun but pretty limited. Needs more features imo.. Even with its limitations, it is my most used music making app!

If you want more of a full DAW you should check out NanoStudio. The UI can be annoying with iPhones small screen. But it is a daw on your phone!!

Rythm is also fun little music making app. Wont get used much on my phone though..

Bebot is awsome! Even my father (who is not into music at all..) enjoyed it :D

If you are into DJing, check out TouchDJ. Bit buggy and the song import thing is annoying, but gets the job done.

"Rythm Studio" definately!!
The minute I opened it I was glued to my iphone for 2 hours!
Good sound and handy gui. Try it and be amazed.

NanoStudio is an amazing app. Like previous said, a DAW in your phone!

The thing that makes this app even more impressive for me is that it was created by ONE guy!
Compared to what N.I. knocked out iMaschine - a dev company with lots of money behind it and prob a dev team behind it too. It's a fun app to play with but is an embarassing release for such a big company!

Ricepad FTW!!!

Nanostudio, of course. Especially awesome with the SynthStation25 controller.

iMaschine is a no-brainer sketch tool especially if you have Maschine/Mikro.

Beatmaker2 is great for chopping samples. You can sample directly off the iTunes library on the iPhone and also has Dropbox support.

Mugician (free) and its successor Geo Synth. Synths specifically designed for touch screen playing, no tedious keyboards.

Fun
ThumbJam - fun app with lots of features.

MobileDAW
BeatMaker 2 - deep, sampling-mpc-alike, great audio rooting options -> if you like to work with samples. go for it.
NanoStudio - like "Reason" on your mobile device! One of the best!

IMO my favorites.
