App Description

★★★★★ "Riff Machine is really fun, original, and easy to use. A Super App!" -- Apps4idevices.com

An interactive music box for iPad!

Takes 5 minutes to learn, but offers endless, infinite playful interaction with all the keys and modes of music, regardless of your musical knowledge!

Create smooth sounds and musical riffs instantly! Great for students and hobbyists, or anyone looking to trigger musical ideas! While you generate hypnotic textures, learn about the relationships between keys and musical modes.

Musicians and novices alike will enjoy how simple it is to come up with beautiful, melodious riffs and layered sequences. More educated players will also appreciate its unique control over keys & modulation, all the modes (major, minor, dorian, etc), rhythm and arpeggio styles.

Anyone, regardless of musical background or training, can play with different harmonies, tempo, mixing, note patterns, timbres of instruments, and more!

Manipulate the entire harmonic structure of your musical layers on the fly, or individually. Also play the instruments directly using the solo pads!
