SUPER QUICK INTERFACE
• Compose and tweak beats fluently in an all-in-one window interface, without ever hitting stop.
• It’s all about touch: build up, vary, mangle and break your patterns with a swipe of your finger.
• Compose up to 16 patterns, and arrange them in the 16 step queue to build entire songs.
TWEAK YOUR OWN SOUND
• Have endless fun with the real-time sound manipulation by recording various effect and parameter sliders (Automation).
• Add that personal touch and record your own sounds while jamming, with the super fast microphone recording feature.
• Get creative with a large library of over 400 included samples in 4 categories: Drums, Bass, Percussion and Keys.
• Take your custom sample library on the road by importing or pasting sounds from other apps.
• Surprise yourself and make endless variations of one loop: give each of the four channels a different length.
• Every recorded parameter automation can have its own length too, resulting in ever evolving rhythms or melodies.
• Create your own original grooves by changing the swing amount and BPM per step.
GREAT TEAM PLAYER
• Play together with Ableton Link and sync multiple apps and devices over WiFi.
• Get your recorded tunes out there and export your tracks to Soundcloud or Mail.

This is an awesome app!!! I also love Figure. Triqtraq is Figure on steroids!!! Adds chords, several layers of tweaking and song pattern building to what Figure offers.
Whew... ok got that out... Now... what helps make it 5 stars and more...
1. Need universal iPad version.
2. Needs to work in landscape and portrait view.
3. Need a user manual, preferably built into app. Going to website to look at videos for help is a time waster, and a bit of a turnoff...
4. More granular control over chords would be awesome. As is, the pitch control over chords functions more as an effect than as a transposing tool. Having said that, it's already awesome...
If you are willing to spend 30 mins to learn the app, and a little time to grow w it, this baby will just give and give :-)
Love. Pure love.
Update: keeps getting better. Now has Ableton Live Lite export feature. This app is sort of like a software emulation of a simple hardware sampler, like a Boss SP-303 or something, but with automation. Great beat maker.
Got this app a couple days ago. Didn't quite understand it at first. Put a little thought into it. It's beautiful.
Put in a pattern, automate it, get it to sound how you want.
The price is so good for what you're getting.
It's like a Korg Monotribe in the digital domain, but it has a pattern sequencer, so it's like a Korg DS-10.
Just get it.
