  1. I agree with Kent. iPhone does not have the necessary platform to support any type of musical creation. Maybe in the future? Wouldn’t be bad if you caught some inspiration while at work or school.

  2. Now if it was a tr-909… you might have had me. Even if it was an 808 it still wouldn’t have proper midi timing without some sort of converter. *wink*

    Long live the 909

    Funny how many know it alls there are on the net. Look around douche canoe, there are tonnes of music apps for the iphone already out there.

  4. OK, hands up, it was me! I couldn’t resist adding my lovely TR808 pic to my iPhone and people seemed to get very excited about it when I posted it on Flickr!

    But hey, here we are nearly a year on and it seems the iPhone does have platform support for music creation. There are all kinds of music apps available. Beatmaker is good; http://www.intua.net/products.html I also use VoiceRecorder for sketching out those ideas too.
