Use separate tracks to layer harmonies, guitar, bass, keyboard, backup vocals, etc. Independent volume controls let you set the mix, and individual mute buttons to quickly cut out specific instruments.

Recording on the iPod touch requires the use of an external microphone.
The rhythm patterns (beat pattens) cover many of the basic musical styles including Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, Waltz, Hip-Hop and Latin. During audio recording and playback the selected rhythm track is automatically started and synchronized with the audio tracks. Selections in early versions of GigBaby! are limited, but future versions are expected to include dozens more.

The display shows current beat based on the time signature of the selected beat pattern, and time in seconds based on the starting time of the beat pattern. Tempo is adjustable from 30 beats per minute to 210 beats per minute.

What's New in Version 1.8
File transfer for iOS 5
I like it, but there are definitely some quirks. My biggest problem is that I can't figure out how to share what I've recorded. I simply cannot get my recorded demos onto my computer or anywhere else no matter how closely I follow the instructions. Not being able to export the recordings defeats the purpose for me. It would have received a higher rating if exporting was easier.
Can't transfer files - it just doesn't work on a mac?!
I've bought hundreds of apps over the past few years and this is the first one that just doesn't work. The recording bit is great, but of no use if I can't transfer the files to my laptop. Avoid this app.
I found this app extremely useful when playing my instrument. I highly recommend the use of the handy app. It will help you practice.
