Music app review – AmpKit+ by Agile Partners

As a music app developer for iOS, Agile Partners go right back to the very first day of the App Store in July 2008 and, as I commented in a previous review, I’m a big fan of their Guitar Toolkit app. Of course, the company also produce AmpKit – a guitar amp, cab, effects modelling package – that is available in a free version or the paid ‘+’ version that includes extra amps and effects.

Music app review – Auria by WaveMachine Labs

Ever since it was first announced, the prospect of WaveMachine Lab’s music app Auria has attracted a lot of excited discussion online. Well, now it is here (launched on the iTunes App Store on 17th July) and, even with only a few days of experimentation with the app, I think it is safe to say that Auria is, quite simply, a game-changing app for musicians wanting and willing to embrace the potential of music making on the iPad. Garageband on the iPad has bought DAW (digital audio workstation) … [Read more...]
