Xewton Music Studio
Bah is an iPhone app like any other.

A short tour through the aid is necessary to the intricacies of the workflow. At the same time is valid for all sequencers in the world.

I use it on an iPhone 3G not the last generation. At the same time, it is a book draft of spontaneous ideas so I rarely exceed 5 tracks, automation effects included.

Good smartphone on the sequencer for me it starts to date. At the time the other musicians took me for a madman on the subway with my Pocket PC and my Griff Studio winded.
I have never been able to draw from this thing. The workflow is complex and the performance of the machine light years away from today's mobile devices.

Instead Xewton Music Studio is a cinch and stability in the appointment. OK do not expect the level of computer sequencers for the piano roll mode edition. After many years of Logic, I used to have everything at hand ... then it requires some manipulations.
For example: either I missed something or you can not handle regions / patterns ... one can make copy / paste / move selection, that's enough for what I do.

As against the registration in real time via the keyboard (+ a little bit of Quantize on the track after that) it can go very fast: we choose the tempo, the instrument is fixed markers on the number of measurement and go. Seen as playing a trick well fixed via a small keyboard (zoomable) on a touch screen is not what is best in terms of accuracy, the undo on hand is our friend.

Right after the sounds are a bit outdated when compared to what you can today, but it's the job not to lose the idea of ​​the tube of the century came to you ... to the bathroom or even the office ... Before that I used a 4-track audio application FourTrack .. Very good but sing a bass line or melody in the toilets of a company or public transportation is not what is the best to go for sane.

I also have the application Akai Synthstation I prefer the sounds are electronic but, of course, and especially does not allow the recording in real time. We should not spend all the grid mode.

I also think the keyboard Synthstation buy 25 to Akai or other gadget in the genre for the time that I can carry around. But there is already no longer in the same use.

I tried GarageBand iPad, not bad at all but at the time there was no editing mode ... and then good, the iPad is less discreet and portable. I understand that there are four on the iPhone ... .. when I compare an iPhone 4 (5 or more now).

In conclusion, it was never for me to believe a prod to complete with it (anyway, I need to record audio very quickly in my components). But for doodling, whatever the situation, an idea for a song with at least beat, melody and bass line in less than 5 minutes, I have not seen better. And I try all the demo versions of equivalent products.

A minor complaint: it released the audio from the headphones. It's silly Andis has been forgotten (Akai Synthstation him out through the speaker).

Otherwise the effect section is nice as any (shame I did not see but good compression ...).
One could blame him unable to import samples or record audio, but again it's not my everyday use.

I changed the day there will be a thing of the level of GEIST FXpansion on smartphone (or not, however, is especially well-Geist to work the beats and sampling).

Xewton Music Studio
Installed directly from the iPod Touch. Once loaded, the app opens as the others. We can not be simpler.

I thought it was possible to develop a workstation equivalent of the 80s as the M1 or the W30 with the iPhone. The processor as the memory capacity was sufficient. It took patience, but that's it, we have it. The power of computer music-end 80s, early 90 in the iPhone (or iPod Touch).

This "mini cubase MIDI Sound Canvas integrated" works very well. The MIDI editor is complete and sound bank, though still sparse, already fun to play and use. An idea, a feeling: you leave the iPod and recorded his song in the subway, park, etc..

I was dreaming!

I use it for two days: I love it! The keyboard, reconfigurable leisure in width and in position, is very playable at the same time: one following the change in width we want to play chords or melodies.

The updates will bring you to export MIDI File (it will be essential: the idea is recorded and was then reworked with his "real" ... Cubase is my point of view the true interest of soft). It was a pleasure to deal with: it sounds correctly, some effects are effective.

Contacted, programmers are considering adding the "sensitivity keyboard" to own the iPhone: according to the position of the fingers on the button, the sound is louder or softer. (See Noise io). They promise more sound and even the ability to sample. Waiting, still waiting!
