"Songineer is an incredibly powerful and user-friendly music production suite." - AppAdvice
Songineer - Instant Composer for the iPhone is one of the worlds fastest methods to create melodic electronic music. It brings on the latest trend in mobile music creation - short, inspiring music pieces that can be created literally in seconds and shared with your friends right away.
There is simply nothing between you and the countless billions of awesome melodies, laid out on five pre-defined layers: beat, bass, keys, lead and atmo. Four 32-step patterns can hold a massive amount of thrilling polyphonic motives and cutting solos, enriched with on-board send FX: Tape Delay and Grand Stereo Reverb. The simple, thumb-oriented structure of the interface is the icing on the cake for anyone willing to make music without any tedious hassle.
Songineer is a unique scale-based sequencer, bundled with 30 original scales, which make the search for that perfect note combination a complete breeze. The innovative DNA Keyboard leaves no chance for any bad-sounding notes, and in connection with the big piano roll-style sequencer window it provides excellent quantized loop-recording and editing possibilities. Since the scales can be changed on the fly and the sequencer data is independend from the scales, the workflow process is highly addictive and gives fantastic results.
Manual input of the beat patterns is easy, but leave it to the extremely powerful Beat Randomizer, which is capable of producing of more than 256,000,000 cool-sounding rhythms. The beats make use of a dedicated beatpad keyboard with fixed drumkits and have their own LP/HP filter. It takes only a couple of taps to export the whole track to a MIDI file for using the freshly-generated ideas in studio work later on. Among other export options are .WAV, .M4A and multi-track dry .WAV.
Songineer comes with 20 great-sounding instruments and 5 modern drumkits, but you can extend your arsenal with 60 more instruments and 15 drumkits, available in 5 packs from the bundled sound shop. The carefully-selected samples come from the best hardware synths and drum-machines and blend perfectly with the latest-generation Amidio's CrystalClear audio engine. Audio and MIDI sharing are carried out through the new audio hosting service PlayMe.cc, created especially for mobile music apps. The URL to your track can be posted on Facebook or Twitter right from Songineer's main menu without any unnecessary steps.
Songineer - Instant Composer is a fresh approach to creating true mobile music, a source of endless inspiration and a really addictive short music track generator. Whenever you're a travelling musician or just looking forward to throw in some cool melodies, you'll love the error-forgiving simplicity and user-friendly beauty of Songineer.

Awesome tool is great fun too!
This app is so helpful for writing songs quickly, just like they say. I've already sketched out a dozen or so songs and tested transferring songs via midi file to Reason. Works great!
You can use major, minor or chromatic scales too, if you want to write more complex melodies that use more notes than are available via the many mistake-proof scales provided.
At first I found the look and feel a bit "toyish," belying the power that lies within, but its beauty has really grown on me. The design actually makes it clearer what all the functions do.
Please, please add undo. A must! Like others have said, it would also rock if we could add notes manually but that's not a deal breaker if undo is possible. Four bars is perfect for my purposes.
Thanks for the sweet app!
Amidio doesn't update their apps
I like all of the Amidio apps. They make great sounding, fun app. However, they put an app out every year and then drop all support and updates. I have several apps that I bought year one when App Store opened and I can't even find them anymore!! Amidio just dropped them as iOS updates came along. So beware The company makes ok fun apps but you may be wasting your money if they fail to support an iOS change. Also Amidio had opportunity to really rise to top of music apps but failed to update with current midi and audiobus support. They always just fall short with the development updates which makes me wonder if they are just chasing a buck. Sad. They could make a lot more $$ if they kept up with everything.
That's my opinion
Very cool app
This is a fun and easy means of creating short tunes that always sound great. The interface is intuitive and easy to navigate through. However, there are a few things I would like to see in future updates. There should be an undo button - I sometimes find myself accidentally cloning selected notes and replacing all of my previously placed notes. Also, I think it would be handy to have the option to write notes without having to record. All in all, it's a wonderful application. Thank you.
