Thoughts on Thump

I was mucking about with this app yesterday, in a very Sunday afternoonish way, so I thought I'd write a few words about it.

Of all of the 2 synths 1 drum machine apps I've tried this one I've found very friendly indeed. I don't know if it is because the interface is a lot like Microbe on the Palm, or at least reminds me of Microbe anyway, but I've found it really easy to use and play with.

Both synths are really easy to use and have piano rolls to add notes. The amp and filter envelopes are straightforward and the effects although limited in some ways give a good range of sounds.

Most of all I like the drums though. You can do a lot with these drum sounds even though I think they're sampled. Pitch and shuffle are available, and there's a good choice of drum kits.

The app has a share function which I haven't looked into as yet, but doesn't seem to have and export to a WAV file. I'm hoping that will come in a future version.

All in all I really like this app, it is great for fiddling with in brief moments, which is what all mobile music making apps should be really.
