    I use all of these:


    By far my favorite is GrooveMaker, and you can export them to royalty free MP3s. Try the free version. After that, Looptastic HD.

    StudioTrack for iPad on the iTunes App Store

    - Studio Track for multitrack recording.


    Reforge for iPad on the iTunes App Store

    - Reforge for simple audio editing.


    - BeatMaker, GrooveMaker, MorphWiz, Looptastic, etc., for music production. Most of these apps support AudioCopy/AudioPaste and work together beautifully.

    nice. ill check all those out.

    i have the beatmaker demo and electribe and patternmusic. id buy another korg app if they ever make more down the road.

    studiotrack daw is also really good. it helps when i want to record on the spot and it lets you layer multiple tracks. thumbjam is solid too, not much for beats but it has a lot of instruments that you can use, make loops with and copy/paste.

    Ive been wondering if it would be possible for ableton to create a stripped down version of the program for the ipad. i dont see it happening soon but i would buy that in a second if they ever made it and it was supposed to be good. im curious how much the pad can handle with a program like that. the most similar one now from what ive seen is probably the xenon app which is limited in some ways but has potential for good sounds

    My iPad is a little too small for serious music production, but I think it doubles as a pretty badass futuristic multitouch MIDI/Wifi controller. TouchOSC paired with Ableton Live has been the highlight of my ipading experience.

    I bought GarageBand thinking it was gonna be better than what it is. I shouldve known at 4.99 it wasnt gonna be spectacular, but Apple sure hyped it that way. GarageBand doesn't have the Beat making capabilities a lot more other beat making apps have. It's very simple and I was kinda disappointed. The best feature in my opinion is the Sampler. It's pretty good. But the rest is too simple and smart and takes the real fun out of making music.

    If you want a good beat machine app, try BeatMaker or BeatMaker 2. There a little pricey for an app(14.99-19.99) but they have the best quality over any other beat app I've tried.
