Tabletop for iPad, from Retronyms, is a modular environment where you can mix and match different devices. Select from more than a dozen devices including samplers, mixers, effects, sequencers and more. Buy only the gear you need from an expanding catalog.
Tabletop is the first musical environment designed from the ground up exclusively for the iPad. Each device has its own uses, characteristics, personalityâ€”ranging from classics like drum pad samplers to touchscreen effects.
Plug the output of a keyboard into a delay to add an echo, or wire it up to a mixer and adjust the pan. Chain up multiple effects to create new and evolving sounds. Tabletop is an audio playground where you can create beats, compose songs, mix live, make mashups with samples from your iPod library… the possibilities are wide open. Just drag the devices you want to use to the tabletop and chain them together like you would with real hardware.
Tabletop has been designed to fit nicely into your studio. Move your sounds to and from Tabletop using iTunes File Transfer, sample from the mic, line-in, or even from your iPod library right in the app. Plus, support for AudioPaste lets you paste sounds from other iOS apps.
