Well if you Americans are done eating that turkey then it’s time to grab some pie! THEN you really need to grab some of these app deals for musicians!
If you are a music educator these apps are the top of my list for being the most useful to teachers. If you are not a teacher but are a musician these apps would STILL top my list as being the most useful for creating music! There are a bunch of other apps on sale but like I said…. these top my list as being apps you should be using!
My top pick is actually NOT an app on sale for iPad but instead for your computer – If you do not have Notion yet then this is the time to grab it! If you have Notion but have NOT updated then this is the time to do it! 50% OFF
OK… on to iPad/iPhone apps….
Cubasis – 50% off at $24.,99. If you don’t have an app to do multi track recording then these first two apps are the way to go, especially at these prices! PLUS Cubasis just had an awesome update giving us even more power but more about that in another post!
Auria Pro – 50% off at $24.99
Auria LE – $11.99 – The limited version of Auria Pro but still worth every cent!
AUM – Audio Mixer – $15.99 (down from $18.99) This outstanding app is THE way to integrate multiple apps and mix them all together on iOS
Audio Share – $2.99 – Use this app as the way to share all your audio recordings between your apps. You can also edit your audio recordings inside of this app as well. Record, edit, convert, trim, normalize, convert… it’s all there.
Impaktor – The Drum Synthesizer – $2.99 – Without a doubt one of the most fun drum apps ever made! Simply put on your headphones, open the app, turn up the volume and let your inner drummer go to town on whatever playing surfaces you may be near! Drum on the table, your cup, your friends head – it will all make for some interesting beats!
OnSong – $19.99 (from $24.99) – If you perform from chord charts then this is THE app that you should be using!
Now if you are looking for some apps to create music with – you know like a drum beat, a synthesizer app, apps that are effects for using inside of Cubasis/Auria/AUM…. here is my list of the best that are on sale:
BeatMaker 3 – $19.99 (50% off!) – oh wow is this a big one! Just a remarkable workflow that makes full use of the touch interface. Be prepared though to either buy some of their sound packs or import your own samples.
