Although recording music on your iPad may not give you the same recording experience you would get in a professional Nashville recording studio, thanks to a number of incredible apps, it definitely can be done. We’ve highlighted some useful studio recording apps for iPads apps that every budding musician should download if they want to experiment with creating some music.
GarageBand is an essential recording tool and an incredibly powerful app. Even though it might not excel in the fine tuning department, and it doesn’t offer much in terms of mixing, it enables users to create music whenever they feel like it. The app comes with an inbuilt pedal selection and extended app. It’s almost too easy transferring music you create to your Mac, and you can also share music with others directly from the app itself. Best of all, GarageBand is free of cost.
Music Studio is arguably even more powerful than GarageBand. Although it comes at a steep $14.99, it boasts an intuitive and extensive interface. There are a number of different instruments you can use through this app through a virtual keyboard. There are several tune banks that can be purchased for those seeking more options.
Another great recording app is MultiTrack DAW. The fantastic thing about this app is that it allows users to record four different tracks simultaneously, and up to 24 tracks in total if you are willing to pay for an upgrade. Single tracks can be recorded in stereo, and two tracks in mono. This powerful app offers an easy-to-use interface and an incredible amount of control over the final sound. MultiTrack DAW can be purchased for $9.99.
AmpliTube may cost $19.99, but it is perhaps the most versatile digital audio workstation out there. It has an incredible array of virtual pedals and amps that could almost make you forget that you’re working on a tablet computer.
