Utku Uzmen Manipulant, £2.39
Compatibility: iPad (requires iOS 4.2 or later)

This is by no means the first customisable MIDI control surface to be released for the iPad, but this isn’t to say that you shouldn’t give it a try. You can add buttons, knobs and faders, and you can trigger multiple overlapping controls with a single touch.

Alkex Instruments Amen Break £0.59
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad (requires iOS 3.0 or later)

This is very much a one-trick app, but we like the look of the trick. Essentially, it enables you to mess around with the all-conquering Amen break in real-time - you can trigger slices with your finger, change the pitch by tilting your device and combine the buzz and pitch features for drills.
