Good idea this thread.

Horizon Synth - iPad only I think £2.99, based on JP8000. Only spent a couple of short sessions with it so far but seems very nice, easy to use though ARP takes a bit of thinking about. A manual would be useful in this regard but there doesn't seem to be one.

No-one mention garageband? Pretty neat as a sketch pad for 2.99

Request - anyone using any of the song chord charts / set list programs? Seen a couple that look interesting, one from Yamaha one from music room, but not sure if either do everything I want:
1. Loads of accurate chord charts for well know songs, transpose function.
2. Ability to write set lists

Both for iPad only.

Avid Scorch. If you use Sibelius it's great for displaying Sib files. I've used it to play concerts, and I'm going through and creating chord sheets using Sibelius and so far it's great!

Noteshelf. Simple handwriting tool, laid out in a notebook style with lined paper. Simply use your finger to write out things. Great for on the go chord charts, or performance notes from jams/sessions etc.

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?
