Top Ten iPhone music apps from The Analog Girl

Another top ten iPhone apps, this time from Analogue Girl. Here's her list:

I love reading your blog and finding out about the latest and upcoming music apps for the iPhone!

And I would like to share my Top 10 (in random order):

I love how it is an all-in-one music making machine, from assembling beats and loops to sequencing an entire track and recording vocals on top of it. Amazing.

This is a very unique piece of software where you can either generate randomised beats or control the way the beat progresses. You can even record your own audio samples and incorporate them into your sequences. Innovative.
JR Hexatone? Pro

Modular synths in the palm of your hand with an easy-to-use, very cool interface. Hours get lost but definitely not wasted once you launch this app. Extremely flexible, very powerful. So many sounds and instruments you can create using Jasuto alone.

Sound Scope Space
It is intriguing to me how you can draw your own waveform and play a song with the sound it generates. Also nice to see how one preset waveform could morph into another.
Sound Scope Space

This is a sound app for both serious sound designers and almost everybody who loves a little bit of ambient music in their lives. Musical genius Brian Eno is the man behind its concept - a few taps on the screen will bring about soothing melodic pieces accompanied by calming visuals.
Opal Limited

This is an efficiently designed app where you can make a song in minutes, and good catchy ones may I add. Great for improvising with on stage or wowing your friends over dinner.

2 synths + 1 drum machine = all you need to make a song. Plus you get to perform live Kaoss Pad-esque effects by touching the screen.

Touch The Wave
I am fascinated by how you can scratch and manipulate a song just by touching and moving its waveform around. How sci-fi indeed.
Touch the Wave

A flashy piece of software which would captivate audiences on stage as you change its pitch/speed/etc just by moving your iPhone up and down. Definitely eye-catching.

Lovely app for recording and looping vocal or any sort of live audio. The results are often hypnotic.

About The Analog Girl
The Analog Girl is an electro pop artist from Singapore who uses an ever changing array of digital tools to make music including the Tenori-On, Ableton Live, MacBook Pro, Nintendo DS, Kaoss Pads and the Apple iPhone. I probably own more than a hundred music apps as I keep on discovering innovation in the palm of my hand, otherwise what I call an "appdiction".


“If Tricky’s dark and brooding Maxinquaye album was launched into outer space on a rocket ship commanded by Björk, it might sound something like the Analog Girl.” TIME MAGAZINE

“The Analog Girl’s electro punk xylophone beats are perfectly Portishead-esque.” MONOCLE

“Epic. Dizzying.” GIANT ROBOT


If you'd like to put forward your top ten then just email them in and I'll post them up.
