Will there come a point where people get excited about "makin' melodies" after they get over "makin' beats"? I know, the only function of music these days is booping up and down in clubs..

Just grabbed it. Nice little app for killing some time and making quick, entertaining music. Less feature filled than GarageBand but also much quicker to throw something together.

I like this app, but was a bit disappointed they didn't use the extra screen real estate to maybe add more drums

Look, I may have Figure on my iPad, but I put on my pants like the rest of you--one leg at a time. It's just that when my pants on, I make gold records.

No. Also no to harmonies.

Requires too much actual musical knowledge & talent.

Stupid Monkey can beat on logs though!
