If you are looking for the best and most robust music studio app for the iPad, you have likely considered GarageBand, NanoStudio, and FL Studio. FL Studio Mobile offers a downscaled version of the popular PC electronic music-focused package – and while almost everyone loved the original, the lack of integrated sampling and limited editing and complete absence of a quality synthesizer were glaring omissions.
With the upcoming 2.0 release (free for existing owners) Image Line looks to address these issues and more! As part of this they have released a couple of preview videos to show off new functionality. Let’s check them out:
Here is a preview called ‘recording guitar’ that shows off some of the new tracking features as well as instrument creation.
Here is a preview called ‘Sampling Stuff’, showing off sampling percussion to use as instruments:
Both videos show the utility and functionality added by the new version, which are both highly anticipates and look very well integrated. They are also planning to upgrade to 8-track simultaneous audio recording. As of now there is no estimated release date.
