Really having fun with this, add someTuna Knobs and you have a portable synth/controller in one. If you can deals with virtual keys.

nanoloop! $3.99 for android and ios

 

http://nanoloop.de/

 

Description

Nanoloop is a complete sequencer/synthesizer/sampler package, optimised for mobile use. It runs smoothly on a wide range of phones and tablets, including older and low end devices.
The interface fits any screen resolution and can be customised with adjustable font/icon size and white/black color schemes.

- Easy to use sequencer, suitable for rhythm and melody
- Automatisation of all parameters
- 8 channels, each can be synth or sampler
- 8 patterns per channel
- Load samples from SD-card
- Sample via microphone
- Trim samples
- Re-sample
- Polyphonic FM-, PWM- and noise synth
- Song editor with loop function
- Send and receive projects via e-mail
- Compatible with iOS version
- WAV and Ogg Vorbis export
- Sharing projects and audio in Dropbox and SoundCloud is possible when these apps are installed.

The interface has been simplified and in most cases, a long press on an icon reveals info and/or a menu.

The Synth

Nanoloop's FM synth offers a maximum of flexibility within a small set of parameters. It comes with a stereo modulator detune effect and covers the typical clean bells and Rhodes-like sounds, spheric pads, thick beats and basses and all kinds of exotic sounds and noises.

The Sequencer

The stepsequencer visualises the rhythmic structure in a compact 4x4 square matrix, which makes it very easy to lay out patterns.

The Sampler

Besides A/D envelope, loop function and start offset, the puristic sampler comes without effects. You can record up to 6 seconds via microphone or load samples from SD-Card (WAV with 8, 22, 44 or 48 KHz).

Note: Nanoloop does not need an internet connection. It does perform a license check though during the first 10 minutes via internet when running for the first time. Once the check was successful, the result is stored locally permanently and you can work offline.

 

much more for gameboy!

If we're talking about iOS, check out Korg's MS-20 and Electribe clones, the VCS3 clone and Peter Vogel's Fairlight CMI clone.

thought you guys might be interested in this article:

Basically, the reason why most of the music app is mostly on iOS is because Android has always had latency issues with sound synthesis. Looks like the new Android L API has a lot of audio improvements.

my app STROM has just hit the App Store:

https://itunes.apple...rom/id907044543

 

check it out, it's a pretty awesome lo-fi sampler.

it also has deep support for the Elektron Analog Rytm drum machine.

 

It's the most IDM app on the planet.

Korg DSN-12 for the Nintendo 3DS is currently on sale for 50% off. $19 in the US, not sure what it is in other regions.

 

http://www.korg.com/...ers/korg_dsn12/

 

I've had it for a few weeks now, and it's a lot of fun! No way to export tracks though, so you'll need to record from the headphone jack.

Any suggestions for iPhone-compatible apps? Most of these are iPad only. I'm really enjoying the GarageBand app in conjunction with amplitube and ampkit, Propellerheads Figure is great as well. The AUFX processing apps look really good and will likely be my next purchase, but I'm interested in synth solutions with inter-app/audiobus support. Any experience with the mastering apps out there?

Since I don't think it's been mentioned yet. For Android you have most notably Caustic 3 and FL Mobile Studio. Caustic 3 is the better of the two.

That said there is a bit of audio lag. It honestly isn't a big deal, but I only used these apps to get down midi/ melody/ drum ideas so it's no biggie to me.

Though I've been thinking of picking up ds-10 or the Korg m01d for my Nintendo 3DS. Anyone have any experience with these?

I'm sure many of you know this one, but I think it greatly deserves its own post in this thread. Considering how self-contained and cross-platform it is, you can easily share tracks across devices, so I find it pretty much ideal as a mobile music-making app.

It's incredibly cool, definitely the most interesting of these on the go music softs. Unfortunately I found it very cumbersome to work with, my fingers are either gigantic sausages, or there's just too much stuff crammed in there for it to flow nicely on a smartphone.

Yeah, this, and the Android version has terrible latency at least on my phone. I think that's the OS's fault, though, and it might not be so bad on newer versions.

It's definitely not the most elegant tool. I think something simpler that lets you build complexity incrementally would be better on mobile.

For example I'm loving LGPT on PSP, although I think by "app" you mean iOS or Android.

For those of you with a Nintendo3DS the Korg DSN-12 is 50% off at the moment. It does stuff like this, but you don't have to make dubstep innit.


Edit. Shit, it's already been posted.Sorry guys
Edit 2. Oh, that was last year. Not even sorry anymore.
