iPad Music Apps?


#1316

played with it only for a few minutes… seems really nice! I kinda regret spending money on Synthmaster One… different kind of synth, but it was probably an impulsive buy, oh well

btw, is anyone here using Digitakt + Beatmaker 3 combo? I made a thread about it but had no replies so far… wondering how stable it is, I would like to trigger stereo loops and/or very long samples with it (via DT’s MIDI tracks)… considering the ammount of banks/pads it could be a nice companion, with a single session


#1317

Synth one is freaking awesome. Alot of sweetspots and the UI is super intuitive


#1318

Another +1 for synth one. So many great presets and well layed out UI

Just throwing the subject out there so we can get a pool of suggestions :slight_smile:


Finally, the perfect mixer? [Allen & Heath QuPac]

My bad… Didn’t think about that

I use that combo from time to time, what would you like to know? I‘ll try to help where I can :slight_smile:

Comparison of 3 popular granular apps by Jakob Haq:

iDensity (one of the best imo) is not included, but I guess it just didn’t make his top 3


#1326

yeah I dunno why he didn’t cover iDensity… and Quanta is around the corner so…


#1327

On the AB forum he said he only wants to make videos on apps on which he has personal experience. Quanta is not one of them yet.


#1328

well I already did some tests in the meantime :wink:
I was curious about the possibility of triggering samples, wich apparently does just fine (via disk streaming)
for now I’m manually triggering them with file players in AUM, but I might incorporate BM3 later on… seems like a good option to have a single session loaded with several long audio files (evolving synths, textures, vocals, etc.)
how do you use it? I’m interested in your workflow / uses


#1329

i basically use it like an sp404, so have a bunch of loops and slices on the four banks and trigger those via digitakt or on screen. I tried emulating a live sampling & slicing setup a la octatrack but gave up on it again rather quickly…I’ll probably just get an Octatrack in the near future :slight_smile:


#1330

For long sample i use Loopy HD


#1331

I use quanitloop, mostly for guitar looping which is its main design. It’s tip top imo, does everything I want, supports AUv3, can wire it into Aum via IAA etc. Wish it had more tracks.

I usually use it with a fixed number of bars, but i believe it supports arbitrary length loops. You can try it for free anyway. Limited to 4 tracks.

Korg Summer Sale:

Never owned Reason or used Rex loops, so not sure the new Stockholm REX player gadget is for me. Might go for Vancouver instead.


#1333

Whoa! Octo Rex for Gadget?! Sweet! I just now found out about this!

I’ve always thought it looked interesting from what I’ve seen, but I was never a fan of Reason- nor did I want to go in on another DAW environment

I’m going to wait for some videos to come out about it before purchasing. I don’t know how I would be able to convert a file to REX on my iPhone/iPad


#1334

OK quick question, going to buy Gadget for £19 here in the UK but what does it offer?. As I still see a lot of in app purchases.

ANy other must have Korg apps I should cop


#1335

You should take your time, the sale lasts a while, and read a lot of reviews. Running a search on the Audiobus Forum for an app you might be interested in is a good idea.

Generally speaking Korg are insanely slow with updates and they have not made AU versions of any of their apps. They have also not adopted other app-enhancing technologies (read: convenience) like the Files app.

Don’t fall into the mentality that just because there’s a super sale you should buy apps or IAPs. It’s so easy to do on iOS and you end up with a ton of apps you’ll never use. There will be other sales.

Just wanted to warn you because I most certainly fell into that trap and have loads of apps I do not, and probably will never, use.
