With electronic music, musician usually write the music in software and the computer is the interpret. After years as electronic musicians we were boarded by filling endless spreadsheet to make music. In 2002, we were touring in Europe, having no fun on stage, while seeing amateur rock band in their garage getting lots of it. We then decided to create Herrmutt Lobby as a research lab for live electronic music.

10 years later the band has become a collective with musicians, software developers, electronic engineers, … and our hard drives and shelves are full of homemade instruments, softwares and tools. Our music and concerts are true live act, the kind that you can rock or fail, the one with danger on stage.

Then we discovered that all that technology we created was the magical tools that help people without musical knowledge to feel what it’s like to rock the house. We used it in workshops, art installation and finally we made PlayGround. A platform where the public, no matter their skill level, can play, all by themself, their own live version of tracks made by hand picked great artists from around the world.

We’re now one of the Best App of 2016 and we’re featured as a demo app in Apple Store. But the most heartwarming for us is the awesome feedback we get from all the music enthusiast who found joy making music with PlayGround.

We will be glad to hear your feedback and suggestions. Let us know on Facebook, Twitter, or email us at …

Amazing app, truly a must get.


Buy all their packs if you can afford it, they are all unique and versatile. Nothing like it on the App Store, not even close. There are a million little Easter eggs hidden throughout the packs, I dare you to find them all.

You can loop, change tempo, screen and audio record, and generally do trill things. Developer is on point too; I had an issue, and the CEO personally emailed me to make sure it was fixed.

Top to bottom, a truly amazing app. Soul Glo, Chains, and Vapor Dream are some of my highlights. But I broke the bank and got all of them... they are just too sick, so calling it worth.

My only advice for playground peeps: skill cap is way large on some packs. If you made feature-rich kits that aren't as complicated as calculus (think Chicago) you might sell more, and I could rock out more stress free from time to time.

I love you Playground!

Bringing organic music to the iPad

Ill bee

This is the first app that has felt like I am making organic music with. The sounds are amazing and highly expressive. It maximizes space and pushes the limits of what you can do with a screen.
The only things I would love to see expanded is the looper feature (I would happily pay as an in app purchase if it were tweaked a tad), and Audiobus support.
If I don't want to put a project and template together in Ableton with Lemur, this has ALL the fun and versatility of the end product.

Thanks all. I REALLY love this app. As an experienced musician, I have hours of fun... And think that anyone could.
You truly created a new kind of instrument here like nothing I have seen!

Original and creative


There are a lot of music making apps on iOS and most of them fit the expected paradigms - keyboards, fretboards, etc. This is not one of those. As the blurb says “easy to play, hard to master” but a whole lot of fun right from the start. Put on a pair of headphones and have some fun.
