Figure for iOS - Coming Soon from Propellerhead for $1

Propellerhead logo 500px

 

Get your musical creative juices flowing for minimal outlay with new 'Figure' app from the venerable Propellerhead Software.

Digital sound sketching

Figure has been designed to work as a digital sketchpad for your basic beat ideas while you are away from your usual desktop, maybe riding to work on the bus or train, taking a break from other tasks, in the office at lunchtime, etc.

Figure looks like a surprisingly powerful creation tool from what we have seen so far.

Reason to be joyful

Existing Reason users (as well as users of other digital audio creation software) will love Figure's ability to quickly shape new Drum, Bass and Lead/Melody ideas. There is also the opportunity to add some parameter "tweaks" that can usher in a reasonable amount of complexity to the patterns they create.

The Developers see this as a platform they can add functionality to later, so we can expect more from this app in the future.

Sonic State's video demo

Here is a fairly comprehensive demo filmed by SonicState at Musikmesse a few days ago, which will give you the best idea of what to expect from Figure. Watch out for the very nice X/Y touchpad feature at around 4:55.

Export?

We haven't seen any info on exporting the recorded sounds from Figure yet once you are back at your desktop, neither in this video or the in presentation from Propellerhead at Musikmesse (link to around 8 mins in, when Figure is demoed).

Hopefully there will be some sort of export option to make Figure really useable, otherwise it may just be limited to a toy for messing around on.

Figure should be out very soon at the great price of $1/69p and we're really looking forward to getting our mitts on it.

What do you think? How useful will you find this "little slice of Reason" on your iOS device?
