Simple sample based music making on a phone


#1

I am no expert on this subject but I am definitely enjoying playing around with ideas on my android phone using Koala Sampler.

It is inspired by the old school Boss SP-303 as used by Madlib, J Dilla, Animal Collective and others.

Anyone else find interesting low budget tools one can use on a phone for working out musical ideas?

Maschine for iPhone: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/maschine/maschine-for-ios/imaschine-2/

And of course, Garageband for iOS (free): https://apps.apple.com/us/app/garageband/id408709785

I should mention I’m on Android and Koala Sampler is on that platform as well.


#5

Don’t forget Groovepad for Android.


#6

Was NanoStudio all the way for me.

But they recently upgraded and a key feature hasn’t come online yet. Hard to conveniently time-sync samples, (including your own recorded vocals).

Once that gets added, I’m back in.
