What's New in Version 3.2.0
• Added the new preset sounds "Factory 2" to nine gadgets.
• Various other adjustments to improve stability and ease of use.
So much sound and lots more!
This app is really good. It's got many different instruments to use as well as extra optional instruments if you purchase their separate apps. It also works good as another sound source for GarageBand if you have it set up. My only problem with this app has to be the price. I want every sound but that was probably over $100 and I still have in-app purchases on Module to get! One other thing, why is the Darwin gadget exclusive to iPad? If iWAVESTATION is similar to iM1. and the one is available on iPhone, why not add support for iPhone? Plus, I want a Polysix gadget. If you have the money, and your music expedition needs more, get it and as much more as possible.
A Useful Tool for Composing
The sequencer interface is enough of a reason to use this app. It is very intuitive if you have a working knowledge of scales, chord voicings and meter. Reading music or proficiency on a piano is not required. The sound library is large and allows for some customization.
The app is great for composing and arranging quickly especially if you don't have a studio to work in. I'm able to write melodies, harmonize, edit voicings, and experiment with different timbres on the fly. Quality demo versions of instrumental tracks can be produced quickly. Some sounds could make it to a final mix too.
It's a mini Ableton. Sometimes quirky, but some of that is the iPad Air 2. I love the program! And having the iM1 in the mix is AWESOME!!!! I would love to see audio added. But if not, there are easy workarounds! Keep it up.
Update October 2016: Still great. An audio track would be wonderful!!
Update January 2017: The new synths are great!!! I love this APP!!!
Update: an OSX version that just updated to include Milipitas!! Plus, the synths open as plug-ins in other applications!!! JOY!!!
Still LOVING it!!
