ipad app with basic Live-like clip functionality?

Post by soundsliketree » Sat Jul 07, 2012 9:12 pm

I'm curious if anyone knows of an iPad app that has this basic Live functionality: the ability to load user samples and launch them quantized to the tempo grid. I'm looking for a way to use my iPad as an emergency back-up in case my laptop goes down right before or during a show, and I would only require this very basic functionality for this purpose.

Thanks for any info.

Electrify is exactly what you want.

Griid is a controller for Live on a Mac/PC. I'm looking for apps that actually hold the samples in the iPad itself.

Electrify looks to be the closest iOS app to Live that I've found. One thing that does seem to be different is that each clip in Electrify needs to be in a step-sequencer - which maxes out at 8 bars. I would rather just have a clip play the audio, plain and simple. Will keep tinkering/searching...
