Propellerhead Software, developer of music-centric software apps, has just released Figure, an iPhone music creation app for instant inspiration.
Figure allows amateur and professional musicians to create quick, original music in seconds by entering drum, bass, and lead synth beats. Figure features an easy-to-use interface that even non-musicians can use to produce their own music. The app description even claims that no previous playing skills are needed to use the app.
Propellerhead’s CEO, Ernst Nathorst-Böös, describes the inspiration behind the creation and interface of Figure, saying, “mobile users’ aspirations are quite different... They desire immediacy, a diversion, to start playing fast and most of all to have fun.”
Gesture controls are used to tweak and alter sounds. Users play Figure by sliding a finger across the play pad. The sound is always kept on key and on beat. The synth sound is powered by Propellerhead’s Reason, a popular virtual studio.
Figure is available now for only $0.99 on the App Store.
