iOS music on iPad 3 (ios 9)

I have a friend with a iPad 3 (iOS 9) who wants to try iOS music making. She never downloaded garage band so she can’t download it now. Any suggestion of free app to try out if she likes iOS music making?

  • Nano Studio (not to be confused with Nano Studio 2)

    NanoStudio by Blip Interactive Ltd https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nanostudio/id382263651?mt=8

  • Sequencism works pretty well on iPad 2 and is free. You can load free sf2 files in it. You can also download GarageBand with her appleid on a device that can and then download the old version afterward.

  • Caustic

    A bunch of synths work pretty well.

    Does she have some musical background or does she just want to try some for fun?
    Korg Gadget LE is free and quite powerful already, it runs on iOS9 too.
    And yes, NanoStudio 1 is a great one not to miss!
    More free options: Music Studio Lite, Remixlive, Auxy, Intua BeatMaker (the old version 1)

    She has a couple years of piano when she was a kid.

    Thank you all for your suggestion. I will install them tonight.

    I recommend to start with Gadget LE, it's probably the easiest to get into (confirmed by my 8yr old niche :) )

  • Sunvox also works, but that would be kinda mean.

  • Agree on Gadget. I should put mine to use, since it's collecting dust. I could use as a sequencer but it doesn't support AU midi.
