  1. Come on Synthtopia. 5 iPad/iPhone app news stories on the main page! If something truly innovative comes out that makes use of the iPads only unique feature – ie the touchscreen – then great, lets see it. But do we really need to be told about every new music app being released for this thing?

    1. Well, I would expect Synthopia to report ANY (working) new software or hardware if there exists an okay video about it… so yes.

      Love it or hate it, the iPad has been this years new-thing for a keyboardist who follows the gear industry. Yes, it's still underpowered and makes talentless people think they are Rick Wakeman… but you've gotta accept (as I think you do) that the multi touchscreen really has opened the door for uncountable new music possibilities that were unthinkable half a decade ago.

  2. total rippoff of the electribe graphic style, I wonder if the guy took it directly from the graphical ressources of the korg app, shame on the lazy designers!!!!!

  3. I am looking for a device that turns the ipad into an actual drum machine. Where you hook it to your electronic drum triggers and then use it as the brain. Has anything like this been invented yet? I guess you would need an interface that accepts the trigger inputs and then plugs into the ipad, should be simple enough and it could replace your $600 Roland brain.
