We’ve seen hundreds of music-making apps for iPad since the device launched in 2010, but Cotracks puts an interesting spin on the category.

It’s described as “a collaborative music studio for teamwork on a single iPad”, with the idea being that up to four people can manipulate loops and samples simultaneously on a single tablet, with the app’s interface adjusting depending on whether one, two, three or four people are using it.

“It’s like playing with a band, but this time you can record and play back your own parts, in perfect sync with others, and create the constituents for a great track at the same time,” claims the App Store listing.

The app includes a multitrack sequencer for up to 12 instrument tracks, and the ability to export music as separate audio clips for each instrument, or as a single mixdown. It’s the work of Finnish startup Futucraft, and costs £2.99 on the App Store.
