Intua BeatMaker - EMusician

Intua BeatMaker

BeatMaker (V. 1.3.2, Intua; $19.99) gets my vote as the most comprehensive music-production app on this platform. It turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a full-featured, loop-based, trigger pad-equipped production environment. It even works as a sampler and lets you edit the start and end points and place your samples — or imported WAV files — onto trigger pads. (File import/export is supported through the free BeatPack software for Mac and Windows.) It has two effects buses, a pattern-based sequencer and step sequencer, and a passel of included content kits from such artists as Richard Devine. It too requires some time to learn its UI, but it's surprisingly intuitive and powerful.
