Having reliable apps available to you on your portable devices can help to make the music recording process more mobile and flexible. Music apps out there can assist you with tuning, editing and songwriting. Here are a few of the best apps for Android.
ChordBot is an app that will help with the songwriting process on the guitar immensely. The chord sequencer is very user friendly. You can complete entire songs within the app and then export the songs as MIDI or WV file formats. This app costs $5.
PocketBand is a great app that is useful for both DJs and recording artists. It contains polyphonic synthesizers for 125 instruments, 35 drum beats as well as a synthetic modulator.
