And with Live Loops, it makes it easy for anyone to have fun creating music like a DJ. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play keyboards, guitars, and create beats that make you sound like a pro — even if you’ve never played a note before.

  • Needs more instruments and instrument creating interface, but great app.

    By B CopeDad
    This app is great for anyone; whether you’re just messing around, or if you’re a serious musician that needs portability in their work. Its pre-packaged sounds and free sound packs provide relative musical versatility along with the built in mixing options and editing tools. Its only downsides are that the instruments are provided mostly designed with a pop genre “sound,” if you will, and also that you can’t make custom drum kits to achieve a specific sound that you might want to have. The sampler piano, although useful in some cases, relies on microphone quality of the device you use, and aside from tone editing and sound shaping, the sample may very well stay as staticky as your microphone provides. All in all, the app is great as long as you want to make music with the instruments provided. However, if you want to diversify, I wish you the best of luck making a decent instrument from scratch.
  • Love the Roland Drum Machine addition!

    By Fifthcell
    I love the fact that there are now multiple Roland drum packs available to use! I’m really into making house/tech house/techno beats and this really is a dream come true for me! However I do also like making trap-type beats and there isn’t a pack that has a true sub bass. Most of the bass drums are tight quick hits, not long resonating bass drums... I would love to see a trap pack added in the future! I would also love to see a pitch changer for the drums too. Since I’m more into house music, I use the 909 open hat a lot, but I don’t like how I can only use it with one pitch setting...

    Good app I’m having problems uploading my music to other apps. Can you tell me how to do it correctly because everything I try doesn’t work and I really want to give it five stars and I will once I figure out the problem.
  • Thank you.

    First, the pun in the title was intended. Second, this app is amazing and free! If you have not downloaded it, you should! Thank you, Apple!
  • Love it! But...

    By C R A S H E D
    So, in all, I’m in love with this app! But for some reason it keeps crashing whenever I add an instrument or try and save the project. Please fix this
