    Hi all.

    I am looking to get started in Ambient Music creation while mobile and love what I have seen possible on the iPad so far.

    My question is besides Garage Band and maybe a Korg, do you guys have any suggestions for programs for the iPad?

    Thanks Mike Kulis

    ambient apps suggestion

    i have been going through a bunch of music creation apps and i would suggest looking at these for ambient music creation

    i am really fond of SoundGrid, SoundGrid is very much like the Tenori-On instrument.

    gruvtron is pretty cool and similar in layout to the Tenori-on as well, yet feels different enough to me to use it and SoundGrid.

    Moog Filtatron is also good on it's own and to process external sound.

    Bloom, Troupe, Air -- Brian Eno help develop Bloom and Troupe. (these work on iPhone and iPod Touch too.) as does NanoStudio.

    if you find any better ones let me know too. :)

    Or you can get the official Tenori-On app for the iPad. ;)

    I think it came out after this thread was originally posted, but I recently got it and it is incredibly fun and intuitive; just like the hardware Tenori-On (except you can't upload your own samples yet; hopefully in an update?)

    The roost. I'm a pro musician, and amplitube (12.99) from the a[[ store is FAR and away the best recording app available for iPad at the moment.

    I don't know what you play, but it has the best guitar sound modelling I have ever heard. :)
