Music production\editing\DJ apps
Hello, I am loving my new iPad (got on black friday). I am running iOS4.2 and am waiting for a untethered jailbreak, till then im staying legit.
I made this post cause I am wondering if any of you have found production\editing apps that you use on your iPad. Here are a few that I have found, the first ones being my favorites. i mostly make dubstep\electronic type songs.
Korg iMS-20 - classic but amazing recreation of the MS-20 analog synth. It produces great sound and you can download session data of songs created by iMS-20 and uploaded to soundcloud and then edit\manipulate the data to your liking. It has a zoom function for those of you who cant see well. Overall my favorite production app, and ofcourse you can bounce\export your sounds you made.
Korg iElectribe - I use this for making beats mostly, it is a recreation of the Electribe-MX drum machine, but you can make awesome sounding beats and songs in it. Very dynamic and sound is great.
Akai Pro Synthstation - This one was hard to put here, because its UI is so horrible to navigate to create wht you want, but it has awesome effects\drum sounds in it, in which you can assign to a 16 key MPC style pad layout, and so much more. Id only give it 2 or 3 stars though cause of the hard to navigate and use UI.
ElectroBeats by David Guetta - I downloaded this last night (full version is 10$) and almost immeadtly upgraded to full version. You can make awesome electronic music in it with its samples included. I emailed customer support and they do not have the agenda to make you able to set your own samples (.wav, ogg, whatever) to the pads to make your own custom beats. Still a good amount of pre-set samples though.
Beatwave - the instruments aren't the best, but oyu can create cool sounding music with it. Grid morpher function is awesome.
Virtuoso piano free - the best free piano app Ive found yet. very simple but great sounds.
Soundrop - Can create cool rhythms on the go, and it is fun to use. free version is useable.
I am going to be buying Seline HD soon, it seems like a amazing app for production. I am torn whether i should buy djay, its got a high price tag.. also, if any of you have messed with them, which would you reccomend between the choice of iSequence and Looptastic HD?
Thanks for reading, ready to hear your comments!

I just downloaded Looptastic HD - i love the fact im able to import my own .wav files and use them as loops and one-shotters. This is truely a awesome and dynamic app with tons of free samples\loops.
Currently I'm working on a giutar learning app, so I'm taking often a look at new apps in the music arena.
IMHO it seems that the developers didn't yet enter the big game for music composing. I mean no top quality products. The few good ones are about playng, not about producing.
Hope things will change.
Most interesting music apps (production)
Hi kundalinichi, here's the fruit of some research I did a few weeks back. The apps with asterisks are the ones with best reviews. So far I have iElectribe, Rebirth, MoltenDrums and AC 7 (remote control for Logic). All of these programs are great to one extent or another. Looking forward to getting iMS-20, it looks like the pick of the bunch (I like dubstep too).

Santelia - That may be true to some extent, it seems developers are just now realizing the potential of iOS for music editing\production. I am a beginner on software based DAW applications, so I found it extremely hard to get a working understanding of Ableton Live, which from asking many of my friends that are into DJing\producing, they said would be the best and easiest.
There may not be a "all in one" solution for composing\editing\producing, but there are upcoming apps that do exactly that. you can use the audio copy\paste feature in Looptastic HD to export your loops\beats into iSequence (which is an amazing multi track sequencer from what ive got so far - I cant put it down. It is at the top of my Music folder now.) Also, artists are also finding its potential slowly. Deadmau5 has been seen on stage using iPad for controlling (even if its just TouchOSC or another midi controlling software), also in 1-2 days the Gorillaz will be releasing an album supposedly created and produced SOLELY on the iPad. Which is pretty amazing, IMO. I am quite ready to hear it, and find out what apps they used...!
@chowdown, awesome list, I found some apps like ChipTune that ive seen on videos but could not identify. Thanks for the list, I hope it helps others also! Seline HD looks promising, especially with its layout configuration, I have not yet purchased it, waiting to see how it evolves and how the community likes it.
I completely reccomend iMS-20. It has been an awesome learning experience to use, and it can create some awesome sounds. the soundcloud integration makes it that much better, being able to download session data of others that have used and uploaded tracks with it. I can create synth lines, bounce them to .wav, and integrate them into Looptastic HD with a nice bassline to get a dubstep beat going, and sequence it and set up the patterns with iSequence.
touchAble looks awesome, but it seems a bit overpriced for its features seeing you could just use TouchOSC\LiveControl. I am still learning the ins and outs of Ableton Live 8 to begin with so I cant say much on its useability, but TouchOSC is awesome for the price.

Just downloaded MorphWiz, and BassLine - i found bassline off the Gorillaz page of their new album created solely on iPad - And morphwiz off youtube videos. Two very cool apps!
The Apps used by Damon Albarn for Gorillaz "iPad album"...
Solo Synth [No App Store Link Available]
Mellotronics M3000 HD
Dub Siren Pro
Moog Filatron [No App Store Link Available]
i like Intua Beatmaker
and I think DJAY is absolutely worth $20
There's a new one SynthTronica that allows to import our own samples and transform them..
the new Quixpin 2.0 dj app is supposed to allow the use of a midi controller. On their site they show it used with a vestax spin. That will be an interesting set up. I personally am looking forward to using the Ipad with the Numark idj Live controller along with the Djay software
