Just tried Animoog on a whim and it's a bundle of fun - quite an original take on the idea of a synth. Loving it at the mo...

Yes, I've just downloaded the Animoog and it's fantastic fun. Not a synth man myself, but I'm now desperate to incorporate this into my trad Irish music sets................................

Check out DM1 as well - it's on special offer of $1 for this month - it's a great electronic drum.

+1 on the Animoog!

It's really is an amazing instruments, very interactive and expressive.

After playing with it for an hour, I ran to Apples Feedback pages and suggested that they would implement a "Virtual USB Audio interface" in iOS.
So I could just plug it straight in to my Mac and it would appear as a USB interface in Logic, and I could record any audio out from the iPad/iPhone directly on to an audio track...

+1 for Animoog - definitely the most fun I've had so far with an ipad synth, well implemented for the touch interface and at the current price an absolute steal!

I'll also give a +1 for Animoog.

Also of interest for the iPhone and iPad is Filtatron( from Moog as well) which is also $0.99/£0.69 at the moment ( [url=http://www.moogmusic.com/products/apps/filtatron-99¢-limited-time-only]http://www.moogmusic.com/products/apps/filtatron-99¢-limited-time-only[/url] ).

I'd also want to mention that Garageband ($4.99/£2.99) is now a universal iPad/iPhone app - haven't downloaded and tried the iPhone compatible app yet but love the iPad version - amazing to think you can run something that powerful from a mobile phone.

Having got GarageBand for the iPhone I am now in the process of importing about 50GB of my Apple Loops into it for a total pocket studio. The App has no problem importing and working with standard Apple Loops also WAVs, MP3 and AIFFs which is cool. Has anyone heard of anyone managing to import GarageBand instruments (or EXS24) into it?

Animoog! Again, because it's now out for the iPhone too. Separate apps, but the iPhone version has the same cheap as chips intro price that the iPad version originally had. So worth grabbing..

To answer Paul Farrer's question above - I've been using EXS24 instruments in GarageBand for iPad. You need to use Redmantica's GB Sample Manager on a Mac to do it but it works a treat. And with the EXS24 sampler itself now available via Mainstage for only £20.99 on the Mac App store I've been able to build my own EXS instruments and then use these in GarageBand for iPad.

You might be interested to check out "Cubasis", a recently-released DAW for iOs by Steinberg/Cubase. It looks great but I have been unable to try it myself as it is not compatible with my older, original iPad.

I found the "younity" app to be extremely useful for both accessing my music files from my Macbook Pro and Macbook Mini along with being able to access the files on any attached external drives. The app also allows me to share music files i am working on from any of my devices using my iphone and send them to my friends on facebook. Its pretty cool and there are no storage limits so I can access as many bytes as I have stored on my devices.

The app is free for both iPad, iPhone and iPod - http://getyounity.com
Requires iOS 5.0 or later

Am looking at Cubasis. 24-bit recording capability due in the "soon-to-be-forthcoming" 1.6 release. From what I can tell, it's a one way thing, can't import a Cubase project into Cubasis, just the other way around. Few bells and whistles (things like automation aren't there) but still it seems like a fantastic way to record remotely for Cubase users. Comes with a little synth too (Monolog), not my cup of tea, but people seem to like it. I've never touched a Mac machine, so the learning curve will be steep with the iPad I'm sure, but I'm looking at this for the holidays.

Has anyone here used Cubasis? ... I'm wondering if the standard Cubase audio cycle record/lane behaviour is reproduced there?

Another "mini-DAW" app for iPad - Auria . Has anyone used it? 48 tracks, can record 24 tracks simultaneously, 24/96, delay compensation, double precision mixing, automation ... sounds truly amazing!

Adding a bit of info: Auria doesn't have "cycle record" w/ stacked lanes for Audio, according to the really helpful mod on their very friendly forum. Cubasis does have that fxn, according to the mod on their forum.

Also, they use AAF to export their projects, which Cubase does not have. There is a workaround suggested to bring it into Nuendo first (as it does accept AAF-formatted projects) and then into Cubase, but uggh.

I've been working the Logic Remote app into my workflow.

Recently picked up Launchpad and the Groove3 app.

SP Pro is an interesting alternate midi controller.

My focus is on on-the-fly instrument playing, and these are what I would recommend:

SampleTank: for all other generic instruments.
WI Orchestra: Good woodwinds, brass and piano too.
