This is one truly excellent music creation tool. I dare to say it's an invaluable tool to have on your iPad if you're interested in making more than basic tracks.

This app interface and complexity are identical to the OS X and Linux builds, so you can move your projects from your iPad to your Mac, and back again. Having a desktop quality music tool on a mobile device is outstanding.

The tools are much more enjoyable to use on the iPad touch interface. I love that I have a way to support the developers of this app, and I hope they continue to improve the application (though I cant think of anything it's missing! If anything it has more features than I am currently capable of utilizing).

If you're looking for something more than a basic music tool or a virtual instrument, this is the app you're looking for.

Update: As of the latest build from mid December 2010, I'm totally pleased. From the new GUI color options and new tools, to the much faster performance on iPad, I'm very, very happy. A big thank you goes out to the developer for continuing to improve on the original release, and keep maintaining Sunvox as one of the best music tools available on any mobile device.

5/5 stars

A little time spent...

Upon opening this app, you may just be thinking..."dear god... How do you.... What tha...." but trust me o' fearless app consumer, this will change after you spend a bit of time familiarizing yourself with the layout. There is no manual outright, but playing around yields great results. When you discover the different zones of the screen and what they are for, you'll be cooking up something in no time. I've purchased a great number of musical apps, but this one is by far the most imaginative and interesting to play with. You will NOT be disappointed. Genius.

5/5 stars

SunVox rocks!

I've been using music software on computers since around 95. So I've seen tons of software come and go but I must say, sunvox is awesome. Very intuitive if you have messed with other trackers and leaps and bounds ahead of any other music production apps on iOS. If you're having problems figuring it all out maybe go download the pc/Mac software (free) and go thru the tutorials!
