What’s better than making music? Making music with a friend of course! And doing it instead of working, like Kalle and Mattias…
With ReBirth for iPad’s Duo mode two people can make squelchy techno music on the same iPad. Connect ReBirth to other equipment with MIDI Sync, or enable WIST sync to bring Figure or other WIST-enabled apps into the mix.

“Truly designed for mobile user on the go, Figure gives you drums, bass and lead synth, controlled by an incredibly easy to use touch interface that gets you sounding great literally in seconds. Slide your finger across the play pad and hear your bass line play. Tweak the Rhythm, Range and Scale Step wheels to get the result you’re after. Programming drumbeats is just as easy. Set the rhythm and play the drums with your fingers. You won’t want to stop. You won’t believe how amazing you and your phone can sound.”
Figure is available in the App Store now.
iPhone 4 or higher is recommended. Playback works on fine on my iPhone 3GS but recording fast drum parts tends to gets very sloppy.
