Try to limit yourself to one app, and why.

  • KEW, it's awesome.

  • Spacecraft

  • Nanostudio 2 hands down.

  • The Waves plugins for Cubasis...

    Modstep - Only one I could find that does a loop clip Abletone esque thing with freakin tempo changes. Gotten a lot done in it. All my iOS musicing just started in 2018 so that is why it isn't a new one.

    NS2 - suits my way of thinking

  • I can’t beleive I am saying this but iMPC Pro 2 (iPhone) just wow

  • Xequence, but I am not sure that this was from 2018.

  • SynthMaster One

  • Audiokit D1, once you ignore the pads it is a really good bread n butter synth, or will be when it is AU.

  • NS2 because it’s solid as a rock, CPU efficient, and I didn’t need to use anything else to get a decent tune done.

  • apeMatrix by far. Has replaced AUM for me. NS2 still has a few too many shortcomings to be seriously considered by me (no audio yet, per pad external effects, inability to record AU with AU midi plugs, etc)

  • StepPolyArp Unit.

    Best for 2018, one of the best ever.

    That’s in my top five definitely, along with Riffer.

    This ^ spacecraft and sunrizer.

    (I limited it to one line of text lol)

  • I’m with others who mentioned NS2. I’m flying in it, and for me this is astounding. Super clear to use, super solid and a joy to work in.

  • Does the combination Reamp + Woodpressor/NYCompressor count as one app :*

  • Spacecraft

  • Can't limit it to one:
    Synthmaster One
    Spacecraft
    Riffer

    Sorry!

  • Gestrument Pro purchase...
    and
    GeoShred ‘s AU3 free update!

  • Possibly KQ Dixie or tardigrain. Both are CPU efficient, reliable, with an intuitive UI. Both can make a wide variety of sounds, and they're fun. :)

    Agreed. Their best app since iKaossilator. And that was my favorite app. KEW is a powerhouse

    Pls explain

  • All the above but Bleass stands out for me. Smart fun.

  • KQ Dixie/LayR/SynthMaster One. I cant really decide between those but they got a lot of love from me last year

  • Nanostudio 2 for me.

  • RatShack Reverb. I had been waiting for Audio Damage to port it to iOS for ages and when it finally landed I was like a kid in a candy store. Also loved Klevgrand's DAW Cassette and AudioKit's Synth One. We were all pretty spoiled this year, to be honest!

  • NS2: 70% because it makes writing songs easy. 30% because it's finally out already and the rest of life can resume waiting and wondering as regards the desperate matter of when D1 will go AU :)

    What do like about it? I thought it was anything but smart in design and execution but I’d love to hear a different take

  • There are so many good ones out there so I will have to go with two of them. First Ravenscroft 275, it was on sale and was just too good a deal to pass up. the best piano app out there in my humble opinion! And second is Samplist, an all around great app that I find very useful in all my work, plus the Dev keeps updating it to make it better and better!
