I was on the bus yesterday and gave over some time to play with SoundGrid.

As I’ve mentioned before, one of the things I like most about mobile music apps is the ability to get started with something almost immediately. SoundGrid fits the bill. There’s always a balance between being able to get into making some music quickly and having enough control over the sound. I think that SoundGrid is quite close to achieving that balance.

I like the fact that I can start off a track and make something reasonable in just a few minutes then stop and start as and when I please. What I think it could do with is a little more control over the sounds themselves. Nothing major, but perhaps some basic synthesis so I could start a track and then adjust the sounds as I wanted them in real time.

Just a thought. SoundGrid is still and excellent app with lots of scope.

  1. Couldn't agree more about the “immediacy” factor. Not having to sit at my desk, or boot up a laptop, just press one button and start making tunes in seconds. Heck, I even use Bebot when walking to the shops – I can even leave it in my jacket pocket and play away without needing to see the screen.

    Same goes for gaming for me – despite owning a 360, Wii and every “last gen” console, it is my DS and iPod that get all the gaming love because I can do so immediately.

  2. Hello

    I'm very glad you like my app. I will be adding more sounds and will think about synthesis.

    You tried so many music apps, if you have any ideas for the next version that's currently in development please feel free to contact me, I'm always open for user comments and proposals.
