Propellerhead Software's Figure, released earlier this year for iPhone, has been updated with a new iPad version and iPhone 5 support. The app aims to let amateur musicians create their own beats through powerful but easy-to-use multitouch controls.

NewImage

Truly designed for mobile user on the go, Figure gives you drums, bass and lead synth, controlled by an incredibly easy to use touch interface that gets you sounding great literally in seconds. Slide your finger across the play pad and hear your bass line play. Tweak the Rhythm, Range and Scale Step wheels to get the result you’re after. Programming drumbeats is just as easy. Set the rhythm and play the drums with your fingers. You won’t want to stop. You won’t believe how amazing you and your phone can sound.

If you are new to music making, getting started making great sounding tracks has never been this easy — and sounded so great!

If you are a seasoned musician – music creation has never been this fun!

Figure is a universal app for iPad and iPhone, available for $0.99 on the App Store. [Direct Link]

Just grabbed it. Nice little app for killing some time and making quick, entertaining music. Less feature filled than GarageBand but also much quicker to throw something together.

Will there come a point where people get excited about "makin' melodies" after they get over "makin' beats"? I know, the only function of music these days is booping up and down in clubs..

No. Also no to harmonies.

Requires too much actual musical knowledge & talent.
