ReBirth for iPad
By Propellerhead Software AB
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
ReBirth is back! Propellerhead Software's legendary Techno Micro Composer has been resurrected and customized for the iPad. ReBirth faithfully emulates dance music's three backbone devices: The Roland TB-303 Bass synth and the Roland TR-808 and 909 drum machines. Combine these with FX units, fully featured pattern sequencers and a gorgeous-looking interface and you're ready to make killer tracks on your iPad. Share your music with friends on Facebook, Twitter and more using the built in sharing features.
2 x TB-303 Bassline Synthesizer with pattern sequencer
The original Acid House and Techno bass synth. Unrivaled power, unmistakable sound.
TR-808 Drum machine
Roland's sub-heavy 1980 beat computer. Instant hip-hop.
TR-909 Drum machine
The go-to beatbox for everything House and Techno. Press play and you're dancing.
Tempo-synced digital delay
Bouncy and hypnotic, always in time with your music.
Compressor with threshold and ratio
A bare-bones compression unit for added beefiness.
Distortion unit with amount and shape
Raw and rugged distortion for that extra edge. Works wonders with any 303 bassline.
Pattern controlled Low-pass / Band-pass filter - a tweaker's delight.
Device specific mixer sections with pan, delay sends and FX switches
Includes 7 original user mods with alternative sound sets and graphics
Share function with easy publication of songs to Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.

Disappointing -- and definitely not for iPad Mini
Very disappointing that Propellerhead have tried to squeeze the whole of the old Rebirth interface into the IPad without the option to zoom in/pan around. It's incredibly cluttered -- and on iPad Mini everything's so small it's totally unusable.
As soon as I'd downloaded the app and started it up I felt a sharp sense of disappointment that intensified as I tried to manipulate the controls of the emulated instruments. It's just a total mess of an interface at this scale. Coupled with the high price of the app (relative to similar apps) it's just a terrible offering.
Would have one star were it not for the quality of the sound, which remains as good as Rebirth ever was -- but don't buy this. It's incredibly depressing to try to use it and not a satisfying way to make music. Propellerhead should be ashamed.
Ok, I now currently own all the propellerhead apps. Figure being 1st, Thor being 2nd and this being 3rd. Paying 10 pounds for an app, I should expect some really good package. It's not even in HD, it's too fiddly, the same as Thor, too fiddly. The mods are so low quality in picture you can barely see it, everything is really complicated and not simple like figure is. Really really disappointed spending 20 pounds on both Thor and this app, I've wasted some time. All I've got now is two apps that don't work very well and I wish they did. Plenty of sounds and things to be made from this app but unfortunately not in this state. Sort it out and update both Thor and this. Else you're getting nowhere 3/10
I absolutely love this. I wish I could afford the real thing (2x303's, an 808 and a 909) but this does the job so well. Sounds fantastic.
