  • Favorite IOS music apps and what i hope they get in 2013

    Garageband:

    More smart instruments please!

    user loading of samples for the drum machine

    for new ipad and ipad 4 - 16 track support

    proper mixer with faders please!



    Korg iPlolySix:

    replace the hideous sequencer page with something that's more readable as the piano roll page is VERY difficult to get on with...the TINY red l.e.d that denote that you have a note playing is DIMMER than the white button!....

    serously...go ahead keep that if you want but give actual users the option of a page they can SEE their data they are entering!



    Same with the drum edit sequencer page...LIGHT UP drum notes and not just a TINY red l.e.d. that's dimmer than the white button .... or grey button!



    take a look at DM1's edit page...easy isn't it?



    DM1

    longer patterns please..64 step

    time signatures other than 4/4



    sharing of user created sample based kits





    Sunrizer

    add a sequencer/basic drum track and maybe give us 2 synths to play with!

    basically go down the ipolysix route but with proper sequencer pages and drum edit pages we can USE!



    Animoog

    add a drum kit to the 4 track area so we can sketchout ideas with just the Animoog.



    Loopy

    If ios and the ipad hardware can stand it...can we have 16 or 24 loops and maybe the option to chain loops?



    Korg iMS20

    love it already but anything extra would be...well really cool!



    thanks for listening!

    M3000 HD (Mellotron) - Midi support!! This app would be amongst the best of the best (IMO) if I could use a controller to trigger it.



    Geo Synth - I love the concept; the stock patches are ok at best.

      P.S.



      for expensive ios apps like steinberg cubasis - they need to put the money where their mouth is and offer a demo version...i'm not going to throw

        iElectribe needs note sequencing so that it is possible to grab control of bass lines and whatnot.



        For the most part though I am sorry to say that I have lost interest in iPad music-making for the time being. It is just me. My iPad version 1 is showing its "age" too - slow and crashes lot on many web sites. It gets used mostly for reading, surfing, note-taking (still fine with NoteTakerHD), and watching stuff on YT or Netflix.
        Gribs

        ...Music can be used to stimulate mass emotion, while mathematics cannot; and musical incapacity is recognized (no doubt rightly) as mildly discreditable, whereas most people are so frightened of the name of mathematics that they are ready, quite unaffectedly, to exaggerate their own mathematical stupidity.

        G.H. Hardy in A Mathematician's Apology (London 1941).

          I should also point out that it would be nice to see a dedicated B3 and a dedicated Fender Rhodes type app (like IK multimedia did with igrand). All the organs and EP's that come bundled sound a tad cheesy at best to me.

              There are some Rhodes sounds in Sampletank but I'm not sure if it supports a sustain pedal. I have a Kontrol49 and it doesn't see it.



              C3B3 sounds ok but doesn't support swell pedal on my rig, or midi control of Leslie speed, draw bars, percussion, etc..

                  I think it responds to "volume" and also "sustain" as the Leslie speed? I have a cheap Samson Carbon 49 controller coming in today and I'll check it out when/if I find my camera connection dongle .

                    Nope, sustain doesn't hook up to the Leslie speed although it looks like I can remap, here's a map of the C3B3 functions:

                    - Upper Drawbars: cc #70 to #78, midi channel 1

                    - Lower Drawbars: cc #70 to #78, midi channel 2

                    - Pedal Drawbars: cc #70 and #71, midi channel 3

                    - Leslie Run/Stop: cc #81

                    - Leslie Slow/Fast: cc #80

                    - Upper Vibrato: cc #85

                    - Lower Vibrato: cc #86

                    - V/C Knob: cc #87

                    - K-Click: cc #93

                    - Percussion On/Off: cc #94

                    - Percussion Volume: cc #102

                    - Percussion Decay: cc #103

                    - Percussion Harm.: cc #95

                    - Reverb: cc #82

                    - Overdrive: cc #111

                      BTW anyone here mess with this stuff?

                      http://www.audeonic.com

                      Looks like it can remap, I'm wondering if it can split the keyboard for C3B3?

                        Thanks! This info got me going.



                        Sampletank does support sustain on CC64; I came to realize my Kontrol49 doesn't like my Yamaha FC3 half damper foot pedal.
