Video: Building an Orchestra with Music Studio

At the moment we are battening down the hatches here in the UK whilst a massive storm is on it's way in - so we are stuck indoors.  This is a perfect time to get creative with your iPad and try out those projects you've been meaning to have a go at for a long time.

Enter this very impressive video demo from Xewton on how to make a stunning orchestral soundtrack on their Music Studio app for iPad.  There is even a free Lite version you can try out first.

At the moment Music Studio is on sale for 33% off at $9.99 / £6.99 and the in-app instrument packs are also on sale at 50% off, so if you like the Lite version grab the full app now during the holiday period.

Video: iPad Arrangement of 'Leaving Earth' from Mass Effect 3

Computer game music can sometimes rival the production values and emotional impact of feature film soundtracks, often being written by professional film score composers, as is the case with BioWare's Mass Effect 3.

Originally composed by Clint Mansell (former member of 'Pop Will Eat Itself' turned film score composer), this brilliantly played iPad arrangement by YouTube user billkramme (creative Bill Kramme) uses the new orchestral/strings Smart Instrument in GarageBand for iOS 1.2 to great effect.

We were impressed at how great this sounded, what do you think?
