ReBirth for iPad

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.
What's New in Version 1.4.4

It does what it says, you want to jam and create your own beats here it is.. Now if they would make reason for iPad would be unbelievable. Still me favorite.
An old favorite since the beginning.
Back in 1997, I was working with hardware and looking to buy more. Then a friend showed me a brochure for ReBirth. I was amazed at what I saw in the screen shots. Soft synths were in their infancy at the time, and I had to get onboard after reading how convincing this brochure was. Sure enough after building a PC and buying ReBirth, I was even more amazed to be sitting there with 2 303s and an 808 on a computer screen coming to life through my speakers. The 909 wasn't added until 2.0. But Peff made the Techno Box mod before then which had 909 samples loaded. Right around the time 2.0 was released, I bought the Keyfax Phatboy MIDI controller which had about 12 knobs and I was in heaven.
Fast forward to 2011 with a Mac Mini and Reason, ReBirth hasn't been touched since it resides on a PC in the other room. Once in a while I'd play around with it. But since I got an iPad 2 years ago, it's been nothing short of a reunion with ReBirth. All the fun is at my fingertips and I can take it anywhere with my iPad Mini 2. What a difference coming from a piece of software that was tethered to a large computer tower and CRT monitor almost 20 years ago. Times have changed and technology has advanced. But no matter how many top shelf music apps I have, it's still a lot of fun being able to use the software that started it all for me without having to fire up that dusty old PC. Thanks to Propellerhead for keeping ReBirth alive in 2016. Please add Ableton Link soon.
Still the go-to app for 303/808/909 sounds
Ok, I get that there are a myriad of apps that have these mainstay sounds and others are easier to use, but this app still resonates with me because it is still valid after all this years, just like the hardware counterparts. If you do not have yet, give it a go.
