Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Special price reduction to mark the release of our amazing new app: Looptical Music Studio.
As featured live on stage during the Steve Jobs Keynote Speech at the Apple WWDC 2008, and listed in the iTunes 'Top 10 Music Applications' for 2008.
Band is a collection of virtual instruments that lets you play and record your own tunes from a simple interface.
As well as a piano, bass guitar, and drums, Band also features the innovative "Twelve Bar Blues" instrument, that enables anyone to play blues backing and guitar solos.
This app was released in 2008 as one of the very first musical instruments, and indeed one of the very first apps, for the iPhone.
What's New in Version 1.7
Added hi-res icons for iPhone4 and iPad.
Some minor graphical tweaks.
Requires iOS3.0 or later.
Extremely limited in functionality. It's really only capable of 'music by numbers'. No real support after release besides some bug and compatibility fixes, so you can safely assume that no extra functionality will be added in future updates. Doesn't seem right to advertise this as anything other than a simple toy for non-musicians.
The things it does do it doesn't even do well, with cheap sounds that have audible cutout points and very limited use of the few instruments offered.
There are plenty of good apps for content creation but this is not one of them.
Misleading description and reviews, undelivered promises.
This app was one of the reasons the App Store took off when it was first set up. The demo that the creator gave for Steve Jobs at the keynote was brilliant and it went down really well with the audience.
This being said the app hasn't really changed in all that time. No new instruments just compatibility with the latest iOS :(
One can only hope that the developer is actually working on bringing something new to the table soon.
This app is ok but it needs more. We should be able to record us singing aswell as the instruments, we should be Able to determine when the cut off points for the instruments are and we should have a wider selection of instruments. I payed money for this app and honestly it should be better.
