NEXT: Chris Wolfe YUMI:synth
Chris Wolfe YUMI:synth, £2.99
You may already know Chris Wolfe from his excellent Jasuto synth. His second iOS effort is a bowed string simulator for iPad - all sounds are synthesized as opposed to sample based, you can play two strings at once, and bowing can be manual or automatic. If you’re looking for a recommendation, Jordan Rudess has already given it a five star review.
Little Worlds Studio DJ World Studio, £11.99
Another iPad DJing app, this one has an interface that delivers both CD-style pitch bend wheels and scratch-friendly vinyl-style turntables. Automatic beat detection and matching is in place, as are EQ controls and direct access to the iPod library.
O-Music Ltd O-Generator Acoustic Music Maker, £2.99
This loop-based musical sketchpad has a circular interface that enables you to build up songs across six tracks. It contains real samples (acoustic guitar chords, for example) and allows you to construct multi-bar compositions and then to export them as a WAV or AIFF file. Other style-based apps are coming soon.
