ReBirth for iPad

By Propellerhead Software AB

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.

PCF effect
Pattern controlled Low-pass / Band-pass filter - a tweaker's delight.

Device specific mixer sections with pan, delay sends and FX switches

Mod support
Includes 7 original user mods with alternative sound sets and graphics

Sharing features
Share function with easy publication of songs to Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.

Dropbox Import samples please?

Great app although the glorification over the touch sensitivity and with the price is a bit extensive. That's all my friends and I are seeing.
It was really disappointing to me when i found a cheaper app that serves the same function, but more and even let's you IMPORT your own samples, which should really be allowed in all music apps nowadays.

The UI looks really muddy and out of date even with the other module things downloadable. And 15 dollar apps should all have retina display support regardless of who you are.
Bumping up the sound quality would be great too.

Wow! Runs on an iPad 1st Generation!

If you need the sound of ReBirth (check online demos and samples) this app delivers. It takes awhile to wrap your head around all of the controls, but its worth the effort.

Please don’t take away Gen 1 iPad support, Propellerheads! Its getting harder and harder to find powerful apps like this one that will run under OS 5.1, so I really appreciate it when they do.

The only feature missing for me is MIDI clock out. I would love to use this app is my master clock. For now I am forced to use the MidiBus app to sync stuff, which is working OK, but wish ReBirth could act as a powerful master, not just a wimpy slave!

I have encountered one problem … sometimes when I launch Rebirth and then select a song, nothing happens. The program won’t start. When this happens, it requires a reboot of the iPad. So until this is working correctly, I can’t use this for live performance.

ReBirth: 303, 808 & 909 King

Ok, I have had this app more than a year now and it is still my favorite app if I want to use 303, 808 and 909 sounds.

Now that I have learned the workflow, it is very easy to create loops and send those via audiobus and integrate to your studio.

It may be the old app, but to me it is worth it and has proved its value time and again. Thanks Propellerhead!

Last Review:
I rember that computer music was not as common as it is now and I remember people talking about this app in the original form. I was amazed to see it here and did not hesitate to get it. Back then, I was a kid and could not afford it but now I have it. The learning curve is somewhat challenging, but the results are cool, especially when you start playing with the knobs. Well, better start practicing!
