"This track features 3 instances of the new lexington/arp odyssey gadget. Get this song free here: http://hankastral.bandcamp.com
With all the gear options out there I also like sticking with one program and Korg gadget is perfect for what I want to do. If you don't know what it is here is my own overview:
Korg gadget is a complete IPAD electronic music workstation - like a propellerhead's Reason for mobile.
To make music you just pick any of the following 'gadgets' from within the program and start composing:
Drum machines/Drum Samplers
London: drum sound module Gadget designed specifically for dance music but with the right FX can fit any style really. Has 8 Tracks.
Tokyo: 4 track analog-type drum sound module with lots of tweak potential. Sounds great with London.
Bilbao: One-shot sampler (up to 2 bar length samples but mainly aimed at drum hits) 16 tracks. Import your own sounds! Basic FX though
Abu Dhabi: 1 bar loop player. (Again import your own loops) Lots of glitch potential
Amsterdam: 4 slots for variety of drum hits and sound FX. Factory library only
Gladstone: 20 acoustic drum kits
Chicago: think 303.
Kamata and Kingston: Chiptune
Darwin and Marseille: M1 and GM sound module
Glasgow: Synth strings and Triton sounds
Madrid: Real sounding acoustic and electric bass
Salzburg: Multi-sampled grand piano
Brussels & Miami: monophonic modern sounding bass/lead synths Can pump and bass wobble
Wolfsburg & Phoenix: Polyphonic synths (wolfsburg like a modern VST and phoenix like a prophet 5)
Berlin: Arp Odyssey
Dublin: Semi modular synth
Chiangmai: Bell type sounds
Helsinki: Absynth like ambient polyphonic synth
Montreal, Alexandria & Firenze: Real sounding electric piano and organs
Kiev: Vector synthesis.
Insert FX, comp and EQ on every track plus global reverb send. Independent MIDI channels on each track. IPAD AIR and above at least 20 tracks. Most of my songs use about 10.
Obviously there are lots of other great apps out there. See:
