NEXT: Stochastik Drum Machine

iPhone/iPad iOS music making app round-up: Week 58
Stochastik Drum Machine, £2.99
Compatibility: iPad (requires iOS 5.0 or later)

Yes, it’s another iPad drum machine - one that comes with more than 1000 sounds and a step sequencer - but this one sets itself apart by enabling you to set the probability of each step being triggered. This way, you can be sure of creating interesting, non-static beats (that’s the theory, anyway).

An update for this iPad drumpad controller, and one that brings the ability to share presets with other users, bouncing for touch pads and sliders, Virtual MDI support (so that you can use it to trigger other iOS apps) and resizable pads. Various other tweaks have been made, too.

EarSlap Circuli, £0.69
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad (requires iOS 4.3 or later)

Another ambient music creator for iOS. This time, circles are the dominant creative theme: the sound that you hear is dictated by their position on the screen and the way they interact with each other.
