How To Make An iOS Music App With Just 100 Lines Of Code

Developer Nick Culbertson has released a series of tutorial videos, demonstrating how to make an iOS music app with just 100 lines of code.

The first video, above, looks at making a synth app with just 100 lines of code. The next video, below, looks at making a drum pad app with 100 lines of code:

The final video, below, looks at making a sequencer app with 100 lines of code:

Obviously, these aren’t intended to be the most sophisticated music apps – they’re intended to be simple starting points to show you how you can get started with music app development for iOS. They also demonstrate some of the power of AudioKit, an open-source framework for creating audio apps for iOS & macOS.

The AudioKit demo apps are available as open source via Github.

  1. most iOS apps look like about 100 lines of code; that’s why they’re only worth a buck.

    just means the libraries are super-dee-dooper-dee-bloated, and they’re doing all the work.

  2. One hundred lines of WHAT code? There are only about a thousand programming languages. Java? Python? C? Rust? APL? No, not APL. That would be only one line of code. Forth? Wait, iOS has its own code? Swift? Why? Oh, Apple. Right. If they can’t control it, they buy it, absorb it, put it out of business, and then raise the price ten times. And everybody thinks Apple is just dandy.
