Rob’s top 10 iPhone Music Apps

Ok, here’s another top 10 iPhone music apps, this time from Robman, author of the great Musique non Talent blog.

I can get so much out of this. I can even play it on the move, like walking to the shops! The sound is phenomenal.
Bebot - Robot Synth

the snares, the toms, the kicks. Just like 1980.

more fun live than it should be. Still the most “accomplished” music composition app.

t’s the finest guitar simulator on any platform I know.
iShred: Guitar + Effects

Wivi band
seriously, physical-modelling wind instruments with (rudimentary) breath control. On your iPhone. Unbelievable.
Wivi Band? 15-in-1

finally displaced Cowbell Plus as my percussion weapon of choice. So much playability in there!

fantastic virtual analogue synth. Getting better all the time.
NLog Synthesizer

the most playable 2 synth/1 sampled drum app I own. Again, performance control is the key.

Looptastic producer
needs a few more features (poke poke) but my favourite loop-based app.

just scratching the surface, but a mighty impressive start. Sampling is cool.

Wow, that was hard! Even after some recent “harsh” spring-cleaning I still have 77 music-related apps on my iPod, so choosing 10 was tricky.

Rob, I know what you mean about choosing just 10, and the 10 will change on a regular basis. Mine is for sure.

Create amazing and bizarre alterations using the power of the Orb. The Orb responds to gravity and your touch. Bounce, tap, and throw the Orb hear the sounds of another world.

Play audio backwards, forwards, frozen in time, and everywhere in between.
•Control the pitch independently from the playback speed.
•Start warping right away with the 8 built-in sounds, including drums, textures, and vocals.
