Back in the day, producing quality music requires a lot of work to do. You have to go to a music studio to record your songs and mix them altogether. You even have to spend hundreds of dollars just to get things right. Nowadays, we now have the iPad that just does the task, and little to no costs. All it takes is one simple download from the iTunes store and you’ll get useful apps that will help you produce your music with the same quality as the ones those popular music idols produce. Here are those apps:
Don’t have a band yet? Then no worries, while you’re still on your way to get other great musicians like yourself, you can have GarageBand for now. GarageBand is a useful app that turns the iPad into different instruments like a keyboard, drums, and other string instruments. Record your produced audio so you can sing and play your own instrument while you listen to your recorded songs. There’s also a guitar amp included. You can even make your own ringtones with this app. Priced at $4.99, this app surely does wonders when you lack other instruments to play with.
Having difficulties singing? Here’s Improvox, as its name implies, it improves how you sing. And it really works. All you have to do is move your fingers on the touchpads on your iPad and you can correct your voice’s pitch. You can even add different vocal effects like echo, flanger, reverb, and the fun auto-wah. With a $3.99 price tag, you’ll get closer to perfect your singing.
Songwriter’s Pad is a fun and helpful app that helps your creative juice flowing. This app will simply eliminate that annoying writer’s block for you when you can’t find the right words to express your emotions. Be it happy, sad, angry, or scared, this app has it all. You can even find rhyming words if you want to write poems or you want your songs to end in a creative fashion. Priced at $14.99, this app will let you get the right words to get you on the mood for writing.
Forget those heavy amps for your guitar; it’s heavy enough as it is. You’re recording music so you still don’t need earache audio, yet. Priced at $19.99, Amplitube is an app that makes your iPad act like a guitar amplifier. It has noise filters, delay, fuzz, and over drive functions. Plus, there’s also a guitar tuner and a metronome to get your desired tuning and tempo. And since it’s connected to your iPad, you can jam with songs on your music library so you can practice songs you want to cover. Although note that you need a device like the GuitarConnect Cable or the AmpliTube iRig to connect your guitar to your iPad.
If you want to make music into a career, then SunVox is an essential app to have. With SunVox, you can compose music anywhere you want. Also known as the most powerful music creation tool, this nifty sequencer offers top of the line features for a very low price of $4.99. Present in-depth customization and synthesizing music, you’ll give your music the best quality it can have. It’s also available in other devices like PC, Android, and Mac so you can work on your music whatever device you’re using.
