Ableton Push is specially designed for making beats, with step sequencing and pad modes that work side by side. This video demonstrates how to make a natural-sounding, nuanced beat using Push.
BeatPad is a MPC like software for the iPhone and iPad. In the video the guy recreates LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It”. It’s not perfect, but it’s close.
I was a fan of the SampleTank vst for my computer, and it’s cool that it is now mobile with the iPad. SampleTank gives you 16 instrument categories. Choose drums, pianos, bass, guitars, synthesizers, strings, or percussion.
I don’t own a iPad, so I haven’t used FL Studio on it. So I found a interesting video of someone making a techo type beat on the iPad.
