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.

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.

Sorry, I forgot to mention "Music Studio"! The best there is for making your own music. Not just beats.

Hello everyone. I have the 64gb iPad 2 Verizon and I am buildinga portable studio around it to make songs with all my friends.


I am getting I rig mic
Studio track
Multi track
before the update to the new one so it's cheaper and I get a 12 track program that does more than 3 effects with a smart programming work around.

I already have GarageBand but it can't export tracks to other places on iPad with out syncing to comp first. :(

But I don't know what beat making program to get.


Here is my desire:

It has most samples and sample packs are coming out free or cheap.
It has a lot of instruments
It has a samplqe feature equal or greater to garage bands.
I'd LIKE it to support universal copy and paste or. AT LEAST be able to export files on to iPad with out computer sync.


Gonna buy everything today but look more into beat program.

Thanks for advice guys

Oh also I'm seeing the limitation on my piano skills. Is there any program where I can input the sheet ,usic and it simply plays for me?

Also voice changing and such is very important to me but voice live or whatever comes with the irig micas not an iPad app. Will that hurt me? Is there some other way to do this?


OHHHHHH! those are called MIDI FILES! What a great idea! superb invention 90s! :p

Also, I'm a kn3wb. I've just been doing so much research that I now know what I want.

Hello, i am willing to share something interesting and effective with all of you, i know a program that can record music and edit them. It's an all-inclusive method, allowing you to record music from grooveshark, pandora, last.fm etc. Besides, you can also edit them and make them for your mobile ringtones. Just trim and crop them.
