We know Propellerhead Software best for their ReBirth ‘techno micro composer’, which is a powerful electronic music-making tool (including an app version), but famously intimidating for casual users. Now Propellerhead has something for them too: it’s called Figure, and is a 69p iPhone app.
“Create an addictive beat before the next bus stop or lay down a beefy bass line while waiting in line at the bank. Figure will have you making music within seconds yet is deep enough for endless play on a transatlantic flight,” explains its App Store listing.
That means messing with drums, bass and lead synth with a tactile touchscreen interface, and partnerships for Propellerhead to use Reason’s Thor synthesizer and Kong drum machine for the sounds. It looks great fun.
