also, my current actual musical obsesssion? learning music, and learning how to make and write and play it. Started with the Ukulele and the internet almost 2 years ago, and now has began to involve guitar, writing, drumming, re-learning piano, harmonica, synth, and mixing. I'm not great yet at anything, but I'm learning it, the DIY way. Let me hook you up with some free aps that have been really grabbing my intention in iOS and giving me some charge to play with:
iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch (all platform instruments):
Beatwave: A complex and well featured tone matrix/tenrion/grid sequencer like app. Virtually identical versatility on iPhone/iPod Touch or iPad, but a bit easier to use on the pad. Has multiple music scales and settings, from fully harmonic ones to chromatic. You can customize anything from your instruments to your scale, and this makes it astoundingly powerful. It is what I call a "true free app" in that it is not an add run version of pay app (it does, however, feature a store where you can buy more instrument sounds).
NlogFree: a really cool and flexible synthesizer keyboard with a virtual keyboard interface, and immense flexibility in its sound and settings. (for example, by combining the xy interface and keyboard hold settings you can turn the thing into a theremin). lots of samples and again, ad free.
synthy recorder (free):
cool synth keyboard which can record wavs of the various synth sounds you create with it. can be glitchy, and the free version is ad driven. still really cool.
Mugician: an outright cool and unique instrument for iPad, and it's very hard to describe. It's kind of like a virtual 13 string base for your ipad. killer stuff, found about this one through the Gorillaz album the Fall (part of what has made me explore more instruments on iStuff. another true free app, this one is also freeware of sorts. look it up.
that's it for now.
