The best iPad/iPhone music-making apps in the world today Although there will be some who'll try and tell you different, iOS music making apps are not just toys. Many of them are extremely accessible, certainly, but this isn't to their detriment. And, if you want to get serious, you'll also find plenty of apps that boast features that are on a par with those of their desktop cousins. What's more, there's more than one way to approach these apps. If you want to start building the ultimate iOS studio, there's no better place to start. That said, there's also software that enables you to create productions from start to finish and, thanks to the likes of Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, you can actually use multiple apps together in a single project. Don't dismiss the idea of using your iPad or iPhone as part of your home studio setup, either. At MusicRadar, we've been taking a keen interest in the music-making app market from the very beginning, bringing you news and reviews of the best releases. 13 of the best iPad/iPhone iOS DAWs and workspaces

The best Android music making apps in the world today | Google grooves First the bad news: despite having a huge installed user base, when it comes to music making apps, Android remains very much the poor relation to Apple’s iOS. This isn’t because developers don’t want to release apps for Google’s mobile OS, rather that various problems - notably high audio latency and the fact that there are numerous devices and different versions of Android in circulation - have prevented them from doing so. However, all is not lost. Sonoma Wire Works recently announced that it’s developed a low latency audio solution for Android (though time will tell if device manufacturers will implement this into their products) and more companies seem to be taking a second look at the platform. What’s more, there are Android music making apps on the market right now: what follows is a guide to some of the best ones available (they’re listed in no particular order, by the way). If you’re got other favourites that you think deserve to be on this list, let us know about them.

Best of 2016: Kontakt Instruments 1. Wave Alchemy Revolution This one squeezed in by a matter of days into 2016 as it was released just prior to Christmas 2016. Revolution’s 8 GB sample library is comprised of 41,000 samples taken from 14 classic drum machines, slyly referred to as RV-808, RV-909, RV-606, RV-707, RV-727, RV-505, RV-78, RV-8000, RVSP-12, RvBOY, RvDX, RV-TRAKS, and RV-DRUM. Recorded on a pristine signal chain, resampled through a number of character-inducing paths, and programmed with the option of round-robin alternating playback or direct digital reproduction, each drum voice can be set to up to ten different character modes before being tweaked further, instantly allowing a wide range of incarnations for each drum sound. All this, of course, is presented in a 14-voice drum mixer, where each drum kit can be built from the ground up by mixing and matching from the different machines—808 kick with 505 hats, Linn Drum Snares, and 909 claps, for example. 2. CG Organic Atmospheres is a fairly specific tool.

Musique : le Premier Album Composé par une IA est sorti Un programme d’intelligence artificielle nommé « Amper » est capable de produire de la musique avec un minimum d’intervention humaine. Et le talent alors ? Cela ne compte plus ? A en croire « I Am AI », le premier album composé par une intelligence artificielle, il est désormais possible d’éditer des morceaux assez facilement. C’est pour son nouvel album que Taryn Southern, ex-candidate d’American Idol en 2004, a choisi d’utiliser Amper, une IA qui compose, produit et joue de la musique. Une grande première ! Ainsi, en parallèle de ses paroles, Taryn a donné des consignes mélodiques au logiciel afin de composer l’ensemble de la partie instrumentale, des accords aux harmonies. Une actualité qui repose la question du droit d’auteur pour les robots. Par le rythme, la mesure et la longueur des notes, la musique est avant tout une affaire de mathématiques. Est-ce la fin de la musique vivante ?
