Here is another great addition to the iPad’s music making app library. Gestrument puts music on a grid with pulses increasing in speed as you swiped left and right. Add a second finger and the pulse, volume and other parameters increase the further away your two fingers are places. Now imaging multiple instruments under your finger each playing notes according to a set of user definable parameters. Watch this video to see all this in action.

“Improvise or compose within the scales and rhythms you choose. Use parameters like pulse density, scale morphing, rhythm randomness or pitch fluctuation to find new paths for your musical expression and creativity. Use the tutorials or define your own settings to fit the musical style you want to play and compose in. Play on up to eight instruments at once – all with different individual settings.” –
