iPhone/iPad iOS music making app round-up: Week 44
The Strange Agency Donut, £6.99
Compatibility: iPad (requires iOS 4.3 or later)

This is quite a tricky one to explain - check out the The Strange Agency’s website for further details. Essentially, though, it’s a phrase looper that lets you record and stack up loops… but you can do all kinds of things to these loops to create interesting sounds. File under quirky but interesting.

Maz & Kilgore Drum Toy, £0.69
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad (requires iOS 3.1 or later)

A rhythmic app that “thinks the way drummers do”. Beats are created by twisting dials and moving sliders - Drum Toy forces certain beats while leaving others to chance. It’s unconventional, certainly, but the developer believes that it can serve as a ‘funky practice metronome’
