iPhone Music Software: ReBirth is back!
Propellerhead Software has announced ReBirth (App Store link) for the iPhone – a new app that brings the classic virtual studio back to life.
As the promo video notes, ReBirth was a milestone in electronic music. It was an affordable application that turned your computer into a techno studio, complete with a Roland TR-808, a Roland TR-909 and two (2!) Roland TB-303 Computer Controlled Bass Line synthesizers.
People freaked out about ReBirth – because it gave you access to thousands of dollars of rare gear, in virtual form – and because it let you make and share techno music from your computer.
Now it’s available for $6.99 for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. And ReBirth for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad is another milestone.
ReBirth helped establish the idea of virtual studios. And while there are already many music apps for the iPhone platform, ReBirth is going to help establish the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad platform as a virtual studio, too.
What a complete no-brainer…….
For the price of lunch, you can put a virtual studio on your iPhone and carry it with you wherever your are. That’s pretty amazing.
And, if you think about how quickly ReBirth on the desktop evolved into things like Propellerhead Reason – it’s pretty clear that amazing things are coming.
Check it out and let me know what you think about ReBirth coming to the iPhone!
Note: ReBirth runs in iPhone scaled mode on the iPad, which is lame. This is something they should update asap! Continue reading
