Welcome to another installment of PadGadget’s weekly music column. You may have already noticed how important music is to the writers around here. At least half of us are musicians of some kind. Our own Sam McGuire has even written books on the subject. Each week, we track down apps and accessories we think musicians and fans of music will enjoy. Last week, we told you about IK Multimedia’s new (and strange) gesture-based effects app controller. Now, you don’t even have to touch your iPad to turn up the shred on your rock star solo.
This week, we have a fun sampling rig that will make your iPad sing like its summer all over again and the dance party has just begun. Caustic – version 3 is a synthesizer app inspired by the rack mount design so you can mix and match samples to create a dance beat that will get your heart pumping.
