Xewton Music Studio Lite

The lite version of Xewton is now available if you’ve been meaning to try it out. Here’s what to expect:

Music Studio offers a complete music production environment on the iPhone/iPod touch with features and a sound quality previously only known to desktop applications and expensive audio hardware.

It combines a piano keyboard, 8 studio-quality instruments with sustain, a fully fledged 128-track sequencer, extensive note editing, reverb, real-time effects and much more on a user-friendly interface.


  • Photorealistic, dynamically configurable 60-key keyboard (85 in the full version)
  • Instant positioning via the slide gesture and resize with the pinch gesture
  • 8 studio-recorded instruments (16bit 44.1kHz sampled from real instruments)
  • Release and attack time configurable per instrument
  • Sustain samples
  • Pitch bend via accelerometer
  • Low-latency, highly optimized, high-polyphony, battery saving audio engine
  • High-quality reverb
  • Resonant filter effect
  • 128-track sequencer
  • Beat & metronome settings (tempo, signature)
  • Per-track mute, solo, effect bus, pan and volume adjustment
  • Edit whole tracks or bars, down to individual notes:
  • Draw, quantize, transpose, repeat, move, length, velocity, etc.
  • Autosave prevents data loss in case of an interruption (incoming call, home button)
  • Unlimited undo and redo
  • Detailed in-app help
  • Play or record 2 different instruments at the same time with 2 keyboard rows
  • Key labels (Cs only, all keys, all keys colored)
  • Supports both landscape device orientations


  • Projects cannot be saved, exported and transferred to your Mac/PC
  • Only 8 instead of 26 instruments
  • Only 5 instead of 7 octaves (85 keys)
  • No delay, equalizer, amplifier effects
  • No MIDI import/export
  • No add-on packages (+47 instruments)
