The Best Top 5 iOS Music Instrument Apps

Top 5

The best top 5 iOS Music Instruments apps is something many blogs cover but I wanted to through my 2 cents in. There are many apps to choose from but only a few are worth it. I’ve found hundreds of apps but narrowed my choices down to 5. This is just my opinion so bare with me.


1. Moog Animoog – My all time favorite app to use is the Animoog. Moog put so much attention into the sound that it rivals many hardware synths and plugins. And when I say hardware synths, I mean the ones that do virtual analog or some PCM Rom player. This app gets a thumbs up from me so grab it. I was fortunate to get it for 99 cents.

2. Korg iPolysix – This app is impressive to say the least. The sound is amazing. The app has a pattern sequencer. You can have two tones of synths going. The sound and quality is top notch. It can put some computer plugins to shame. Absolutely worth grabbing.

Beatmaker 2

3. Beatmaker 2 – You know this is may passion. Beatmaking is something I do constantly and this is what my blog is about. Beatmaker 2 has come a long way from its humble beginnings. I purchased Beatmaker 1 on my iPhone years ago and loved the concept but now Intua has almost perfected Beatmaker 2. Now I won’t say Beatmaker 2 rivals other samplers but its perfect for getting sketches done. It’s perfectly capable to do everything you would expect a MPC to do. It just missing one core feature to make it perfect. Drum Layering. If Intua adds this, Beatmaker 2 would be the King of sampler apps. It still won’t destroy a MPC but with some skill, you can get it to sound close. This is worth getting.

4. Sunrizer – Sunrizer reminds me of a Roland JP 8000 synth released in the late 90s. Back then I think Roland made the best virtual Analog synths at the time. I couldn’t afford one but every time I visited a Guitar Center, I could never take my hands off of one. Now I get the sounds of a JP 8000 on my iPad.

5. Magellan – The app is pretty good. I kind of use this for filler sounds. You get some workable sounds and tweak ability. This app gets used quite often and it’s awesome. Grab it.

Well there you have it. These are the best to me but I’m sure many will have different opinions. If you haven’t tried them out, I suggest you do.
