These apps are the ones that I have found to be the most helpful in creating music. There’s many to choose from but I recommend these. Download these apps and experiment with the highly advanced tools that are available to us today.
1. Figure by Propellerhead
As far as actually making music, this one continually tops everyone’s list. It is incredibly easy to get into a beat, make it interesting, and even write a song.
2. Logic Remote
If you’re a logic user like me, then you absolutely have to get this app. Put your phone on the same wifi as your computer and you will instantly have control of your DAW from your phone. It’s really an awesome creation and you’ll love it if you find yourself in your closet trying to record vocals without an engineer’s help.
3. Loopy HD
Everyone loves a good looper and this is definitely the one you want. It’s been seen by millions being used by Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show as you can see below.
If you play an acoustic instrument of any kind, or you need a pitch pipe, then this app is a great choice. I’ve used it for years now and it has a great interface and works very well. I’m originally a fiddle player so I like a very precisely tuned instrument
You’re going to need a simple metronome if you plan on living in the music world so you better get one. This one I have used for a very long time and is very simple. You can easily tap out tempos and change your voicings. Simple and effective.
If you need to get your audio from Loopy HD into say Garage Band, you can use this app to route your signal digitally. This is very useful if you’re trying to do some unique things with your signal for live settings or for recording.
This is a simple sequencer and beat making app that I use all the time. It’s incredibly simple to use but very powerful. Whenever you’re bored sitting on the train, pull this out and have some fun.
