Buy FMScreen on the App Store

FMScreen is Frequency Modulation on the Cheap

A couple of months ago, I was given the opportunity to review a number of synth apps for the iPhone. In that round-up, I took a look at pro, one of the deepest and richest apps I've come across.

Buy Perfect Rhyme on the App Store

When It's Time for the Perfect Rhyme, Keep this App Nearby

Are you a dietician but aspire to be a musican? When you rap do people tell you it's crap? Then it's time for Perfect Rhyme. AliMusic's Perfect Rhyme is a dictionary for musicans, poets and people like Muhammed Ali, who need to rhyme from time to time without making it a crime.

Buy FourTrack on the App Store

FourTrack is a Big Step in iPhone Music Production.

When developer Sonoma Wire Works set out to create a multi-track recorder for the iPhone, they enlisted the help of Retronyms, creators of the best selling Recorder iPhone app. Together they built FourTrack, the closest anyone has gotten to creating a rich-featured, studio-quality multi-track recording app for the iPhone.

Buy Bebot - Robot Synth on the App Store

Bebot Chirps Its Way Into Your Heart

The App Store is flooded with a number of inexpensive apps that serve a very specific purpose. A prime example is Bebot, a "Robot Voice Synthesizer." I have to say, I did not have very high expectations for Bebot, mostly because I didn't see the utility of the app.

iTurn is a Dead End

iTurn is a Dead End

There isn't much to say about iTurn. It does what it claims, sort of, but iTurn is just too simple an app without enough options or controls to keep it interesting. After loading iTurn, you're presented with a turntable interface, with the only feature being a volume knob.

Pocket Tunes Radio is Number One with a Bullet

NormSoft's Pocket Tunes Radio is a slick app that puts hundreds of Internet radio stations on your iPhone and iPod touch. Pocket Tunes Radio comes with an extensive list of pre-loaded stations — organized by every music genre you can think of.

Buy Wunder Radio on the App Store

Wunder Radio Connects to Radio Waves from Around the World

Joseph Campbell once said you can tell a lot about a city by its tallest building. I'd like to think you can deduce a few things about a place by its local radio stations as well — which is why I'm utterly fascinated with Wunder Radio, the latest release from the folks at Weather Underground.

Buy Harmonica on the App Store

Harmonica is as Close as you'll get to the Real Deal

Harmonica is a little app created by Benjamin McDowell, developed in the same vein as Ocarina. It's designed to be used like a real harmonica. Just like the real thing, you place the iPhone in your mouth and slide from side to side to play notes.

Buy DigiDrummer on the App Store

DigiDrummer Shines in Perfect 10 Performance

Until now, I hadn't been convinced that the iPhone stood a chance at being a legitimate replacement for any music production hardware or software. It seems I've been wrong all along. DigiDrummer from Magnick Software is quite simply the greatest drum machine for the iPhone to date.

Buy iDrum: Ministry of Sound Anthems on the App Store

iDrum Ministry of Sound Runs out of Steam too Soon

iDrum: Ministry of Sound, from developer iZotope, is a neat little app that lets you recreate the feel of your favorite beats from different genres.

Buy Drum Kit Pro on the App Store

Drum Kit Rolls but It Doesn't Rock

If you're easily amused, you'll like the Drum Kit app from CrimsonJet. It's a six-piece drum kit that you can play using your thumbs. Tap the snare, bass drum, cymbals to pound out a beat. Choose from among four flavors of sound: classic, rock, hip hop and techno.
