I know it is a tenuous use of valentines day, but I thought I’d post a little something about the 14 apps I love the most for mobile music, so here goes. I hope you don’t mind too much
Like many of you I keep going back to Bhajis to do stuff. It is still an amazing piece of software.
Jasuto / Jasuto Pro is a truly amazing piece of software which keeps on getting better and better.
I was using this on the train just the other day and more and more I find that DopplerPad is one of the first things I use to make mobile music with my iPhone. It is starting to be a real hub to work out from.
Bleep!Box is so versatile and tweakable that sometimes I get lost in the minute detail. Nevertheless a brilliant music making app, and soon to get some audio paste goodness
I’ve enjoyed using Mixtikl since version 1 and have found it great to use, whether in version 1 with loops, or in version 2 with amazing generative content. Superb on any platform.
Who would have thought that we’d see a 16 track recorder on a mobile phone? As apps go MultiTrack has a great and simple user interface and is very straightforward to use.
Sunvox runs on more platforms than I actually have, and I think I’m running it on 4 now. I’ve used Sunvox live running on my old Treo 650 and recorded tracks with it on my iPhone. It is a classic mobile music app.
Toro mini is a lovely little app. The developers seem to have vanished for now which is a shame, but I love this app, it is real fun to play with.
The latest version of Argon makes it a really useful synth, and I especially love the loop recorder.
MeTeoR was the first ever multi-track for a PDA and is an amazing piece of software with fantasic effects. It is a great Windows Mobile app.
Since version 3.1 of Looptastic this app has got lots more useful, and I can see it beng really important from now on.
The penultimate app in my list is a great synth app which is brilliant for learning how things work and also for making fun noises. Circuit Synth is a great little app.
Finally Megasynth, an app I love becuase of the sounds it makes and what you can make with it. For me it is my own little Dr Who sound studio. Brilliant!
So, which apps do you love?
