Act Now and get Retronyms' Amazing Tabletop App at a Bargain Price

From the video above you can see that Retronyms' new iPad app Tabletop does something pretty special. As soon as we purchased this app and started playing around with the demo sessions we were really blown away and our minds are now racing with the potential this app offers musicians.

Modular Power

Created exclusively for the iPad, the modular device approach and simple interface design belie the power that this app has in store for musicians, both pro and amateur. We think it will become especially useful when linked up to other iPads, extending the workspace or syncing with apps like iElectribe or similar, especially for live performances.

Great Introductory Pricing

The app is currently enjoying some keen pricing under Retronyms' launch promotion, you can get the app with 9 of the 15 modular devices included for only $4.99 in the App Store. These devices together would normally cost you $50, so it is great value.

In addition, most of the extra modules are currently on sale at $0.99 to celebrate the launch (usually $2.99) as in-app purchases. Act quickly to get your discounted copy of Tabletop!

Here is what the pros are saying about it:

Huge Potential

We have only just begun to play around with Tabletop and, although we are far from professional musicians, even we know this could be huge. As more people experiment with Tabletop and start creating songs or live performance recordings with it we think it is going to be one of the more significant app developments in the iPad music scene.

The video below illustrates just one way Tabletop can be used, in this case for creating samples from the Turntable using the recorder and incorporating them into a live mix. It is nearly 7 minutes long but stick with it as the end result is really interesting. Enjoy, and get experimenting with Tabletop.

    I have already this Retronyms app in my iPad and I found many creative ideas from there. This tabletop app will help to understand the issue and through this anyone can learn more about the app and the iPad tabletop.

I own most of the major music apps on my iPad 2. While some of them are quite intuitive for music making, none of them come close to Tabletop in ease of use, features and potential. Sequencers are limited by their design. Tabletop takes a plug-in approach that allows for a wide variety of tools. I was able to create my first song in a matter of hours after purchase (see the group on SoundCloud) rather than days, which is what most other apps used to take me. Some people complain about the investment in the add-ons, but really it's about $70 to buy all existing add-ons, which is worth it to me if the app meets my needs and expectations... and it does. I find it enjoyable to use Tabletop, not a chore, and I keep coming back to it throughout the day to work on new beats and a new song. I haven't loaded any of my other sequencers since I started using Tabletop, the only reason would be to get samples or sounds. I also own a producer version of FL Studio with a lot of samples, which I'll be importing into my iPad as needed. My ultimate plan is to get an iPad 3 come income tax time, make it my main workstation and my iPad 2 a sound generator hooked in via Wist. I'm loving it if you couldn't tell. I'm not a professional, I'm a novice, a hobbyist having a blast.
