Do you want an iPhone app to make beats? And produce like totally awesome tracks with a zillion channels and plugins and automation and 808 simulators and stuff yeah? Oh. Well, this is not for you.
Mujik is more than a music app – get away from fake sliders and buttons and enter the world of Mujik, with charming graphics, lovely music, and a wonderfully tactile interface. It’s not rocket science, it’s just fun.
The web loves Mujik! Here is what people have been saying...
Listed in the Gizmodo "Essential Apps Directory"!
"At its heart, Mujik is a drum sampling machine. That description, though, doesn't do it justice: the interface is inspired and artistic, the instrument choices, albeit limited, complement each other beautifully. The end results are phenomenal, especially if you musical tastes lean a little toward right field."
from Create Digital Music:
"Musical technology is often designed to be “hard” in character. Interfaces are cold and technological-looking, futuristic like spaceships, or made to replicate antique gear to make guitarists feel nostalgic. Musical interfaces consciously avoid anything “childish” – calling something a “toy” being the worst possible insult – and they’re certainly never whimsical.
That’s why the real news about Mujik isn’t that it’s a new iPhone app, or that, after a few weeks of teasers, you can download it today on the iTunes store. The news is that it’s a musical interface with lightning bugs."
From The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW):
"Every so often something hits the App Store that is interesting but difficult to explain. At the same time, it is enjoyable to use, and you tip your hat to the people who thought it up, even if it has no real practical use."
"If you have been intimidated by sophisticated music creation tools available in the appstore, you should definitely give Mujik a go. It’s a fun and enjoyable way to begin creating music."
Apps Addicts: 10/10 review!
"This app is very difficult to explain, but so simple and entertaining to use. It is sure to entertain anyone who tries it out for hours at a time. The basic rhythm playing behind the effects is so entrancing time will literally melt away and you will find a half hour has passed since you first touched the app and dove into it's world of rhythm."

For lil squarepushers
This isn't really a music making app--this is an app for having fun making music. Its whimsical interface is perfect for children and adults alike. I think it's particularly suited to kids and novices as most everything they can make with this application will sound great. There's a surprising amount of depth to the application, but it is not necessary to master right off of the bat. This app lets you explore.
If you are a serious musician looking for a hardcore music-creation application and is used to the interfaces of DAWs and software synths, I can imagine that this app may just seem strange. I don't really think it's the best fit for you. On the other hand, if you want to introduce someone--a child or a novice--to making music by remixing; if you want to pique their curiosity; this is a great app for that.
Weird, but not in a good way
Sometime "intuitive" controls need real explanations. This application is hard to understand, and when you fool around with it to see what it does, you can't undo it if it is terrible. I'd like a reset button. The graphics are cool, but it doesn't seem like there is much to the basic music to change. I'm not really sure what the hype is all about. Just because it is unusual doesn't mean it is worthwhile.
Beautiful little app for exploring music in a completely new way. Brilliant graphics, lovely music, a totally new experience.
