"a bit like musical crack" - Synthtopia
TonePad is the easiest and coolest way to make music. Discover the inner musician in you. Create songs by simply touching the screen and seeing notes light up.
If you like Andre Michelle's ToneMatrix or the Tenori-On, then you will absolutely love this app.
TonePad features a clean minimalist user interface with a full 16x16 matrix. The sound quality remains excellent regardless of how many notes are playing at the same time.
You can save an unlimited number of songs. The current song is also saved automatically on exit.
Please use headphones for best sound. Stayed tuned for more customization features to come. If you like the app, please write a review. Thanks!
What's New in Version 1.30
- App updated for iOS 8
I’m so glad this app was resurrected. I had it years ago on my first iPod touch and loved playing with it when I had a free moment. It’s not a sequencer, it’s not a multitrack recorder, it’s not a music composition tool. If you want those things, there are other apps for that. This is just a delightfully simple tool for building pretty musical phrases. Maybe calling it a toy would set the correct expectations, but I see it as a little gem living on my phone.
(Actually this version has ads, which spoil the aesthetics somewhat. If the developer added an in-app purchase to remove the ads, I’d buy it.)
Beatwave is an app that is Ten times more than this. This app used to be fun but you can't make a decent idea for a good song because you can't change octaves, you can't change tempo, nor can you even make a heavy sub synth to make your woofers go "Wub" very loudly and deeply. Of course, Beatwave can make your woofers go "Wub" a bit, but if it got "that" update then that "Wub" goodness would be extra crispy. Sayonara TonePad. Bye bye, indeed.
I love this thing, but long for something that allows more time and has more pitches than the pentatonic scale. It's way fun though!
