VidRhythm Review: Making Music Video Mashups on iPhone Quick and Easy

VidRhythm Review-4

Rating: VidRhythm Review: A great music app to create mashups of your own voice and video using some preset themes and music selection. With a group of friends this could be a whole lot of fun. VidRhythm {$1.99} is actually pretty simple in concept. You choose a piece of music and then a theme. The app then asks you to record … Read More

‘Future DJ’ A Real DJ Experience On Your iPhone

Future Dj

Rating: DJ mixing has never been my forte but the Future DJ for iPhone brings a real life DJ software kit to your iPhone. Let me first say that this app is no joke, it does many things that at first I found over my head but as I learned the app seemed more and more useful. A musically challenged … Read More

GarageBand Review for iPad

iPad Screenshot 3

Rating: Having just reviewed NanoStudio for iPhone it seems like a good idea if I take Apple’s widely lauded music making app for a spin. Especially now that it has come to both the iPad and the iPad 2. GarageBand on the iPad is a completely different beast to the likes of NanoStudio – but in the end it is … Read More

NanoStudio for iPhone – Awesome Digital Music Sauce!

NanoStudio Music Recording App for iPhone-1 Photo

NanoStudio Rating: About 10 years ago I had a fairly powerful Macintosh laptop (*a 540c if memory serves), a copy of Cubase (professional level music sequencing software), a MIDI interface kludge, a couple of drum pads and an Akai 2000 sampler. Off the top of my head that little lot probably set me back around $10,000 and took up half … Read More

ElectroBeats by David Guetta : Electronic Instrument for the Masses

ElectroBeats by David Guetta iPhone

ElectroBeats by David Guetta Rating: ElectroBeats is billed as an “intuitive beat making application conceived in collaboration with worldwide renowned and most demanded producer David Guetta.” And further described as an “electronic instrument for the masses”. So it has a lot to live up to… Does the app measure up to the hype?  A unique selling point of Electrobeats (“EB”) is … Read More

Polychord : Fun with Arpeggios on an iPad

polychord

Polychord Rating: One of my favourite things to do when I was a kid was to sit in-front of a big electric organ we had at home and play with arpeggios and chords. Occasionally I would have my Dad bring back some cool Korg keyboards from the college he taught at, so that over the weekend I could make weird sound … Read More

Magic Fiddle : Turn Your iPad into a Friendly Musical Instrument

Magic Fiddle

Magic Fiddle Rating: Magic Fiddle is exactly what its app title suggests. Another musical instrument app for your iPad. But this time based around a more unlikely instrument, the Fiddle. And yes, it really does work better if you hold it like a fiddle! Magic Fiddle comes from Smule, who have already had a lot of success with their “Magic Piano” … Read More

ThumbJam – Make sweet live music with your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad

ThumbJam iPhone

ThumbJam Rating: It’s rare to see an app with so many positive reviews and so few negative ones on the App Store. So we decided to check ThumbJam out. Apparently it can make anyone into a live performance pro, and groups of iPhone users into their very own synced up band! ThumbJam should not be looked upon as a tool for … Read More

Synth: Nice iPad Music App but not for Serious Musicians

Synth Rating: Any application that can make me feel like I have any musical talent must be pretty good and I’ve found that many iPhone/iPod Touch apps can do that and now on the iPad a plethora of musical iPad apps are coming out which will hopefully make me feel even more like a musical maestro. This time it’s Synth … Read More

Accordéon iPad Music App Review

Accordéon Rating: Writing the review for this application is possibly one of the most difficult reviews that I’ve ever had to write. Actually, let me rephrase that. Most difficult I’ve had to score. I’ll write my review and then perhaps you’ll see what I mean. Accordéon is exactly that, it’s an accordéon simulator for the iPad and in that it … Read More

BandMate: Personalized Live Music Calendar

BandMate Rating: Apple introduced ‘genius’ feature for songs first and then extended it for apps. Personalized suggestions make your next purchase very easy and certainly makes more sense. We have been noticing a rise in web and 3rd party applications which are offering personalized suggestions either for music or apps. BandMate is a genius app for all music lovers as it helps … Read More

Review: Jamble Music Mashups: Grandmaster Flash or Jive Bunny?

Rating: Jamble Music Mashups is a music app with a difference in rather than just allowing you a different way to play your own tracks it provides with a series of loops that allow you to create your own mobile music mix but is this a Grandmaster Flash of the app world or more of a Jive Bunny? Jamble’s point-and-mix … Read More
