The Mobile Music Alphabet: G is for …

G is for Gliss

One of the great things about the iPhone is that it has brought so many new interfaces and interesting ways of making music. Gliss is a great example of a very different way of making music and manipulating sound.

G is for Groovemaker

Groovemaker apps for the iPhone and now the iPad have opened up mobile music making. Groovemaker have brought a good selection of genres to their loop apps and of course their new iRig looks great, but enough of that as it doesn’t start with G!

One of the great things about Groovemaker is that it is so immediate. You can be making music straight away, which is exactly what you want with a mobile app.

G is for Griff

I still have Griff, and even though it is one of the oldest mobile music apps it is still amazing. Griff is a mobile studio with multiple instrument and FX plug ins. Griff runs of PocketPC / Windows Mobile and is still an excellent piece of software today.

I think that if something like Griff came out for the iPhone now it’d be an absolute killer.

G is for GlitchDS

G wouldn’t be complete without GlitchDs, a great homebrew app for the DS. If you didn’t know, glitchDS is a free homebrew Cellular Automaton music sequencer for the Nintendo DS. It’s perfect for creating IDM and Glitch style loops.

G is for Groovestep

GrooveStep Digital Music Studio is a full featured music making application for the Nintendo DS. GrooveStep features an easy to use step sequencer for pattern based music making. You can make beats, melodies and full songs with GrooveStep.

G is for GuitarBud

I’ve only had one of these for a little while and I didn’t buy it to use with a guitar (more of that another day). I’ve found it very good so far and nicely built too.
