Heavy Ephemera Wiresq, £1.19
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch and iPad (requires iOS 3.1 or later)

While many iOS music-making apps are designed to be picked up and used by anyone immediately, this one looks a little more involved. It’s a sequencer that users wireworld – “a cellular automata that allows for the construction of digital logic circuits to generate audio triggers”. A basic synth with a filter is part of the package, too. Check out a video demo.

mobileRhythm, mR-606, £3.49
Compatibility: iPad (requires iOS 3.2 or later)

One look at the interface and name should be enough to give you an idea of what this is - a vintage drum machine that takes inspiration from classic Roland hardware. This being the case, there’s a step sequencer and a range of tone-shaping controls. A Universal version that works on iPhone and iPod touch is also available.

This one won’t actually be released until 2011, but we thought you’d like a preview now. Konkreet Performer is an innovative-looking MIDI/OSC controller that’s designed for live performance, and promises to “reconnect the musician’s actions directly with the music”. Check out a demo video here.
