What is a good iOS equivalent app to a TE Pocket Operator for a beginner dabbling in beat making?
I was inspired by Andrew Huang — Pocket Operators! video and was looking for an iOS equivalent. I find it really hard to find good information seen I don't even know the language.
What I think I want is a ‘drum pad (?)’ on which I can load my own samples, either from directly recording via the phones mic or from my own library. Apps I found so far:
- iMaschine 2 — App hasn’t updated in over a year and gets a lot negative reviews
- Beatmaker 3 — No iPhone version and seems really intimidating
- Roli Noise — no feature to load your own samples, love the UI.
I know iOS isn't ideal for any of this, but I have no experience and I want to limit myself on what I can use. Music production can be a really deep rabbit hole and I want to try it frist before I’ll buy any kind of hardware.
