Figure makes it easy to create great-sounding music in seconds.

Create an addictive beat before the barista brings your coffee or lay down a beefy bass line while waiting for the bus to arrive.

Figure is intuitive enough for beginners to make music within seconds, yet deep enough for you to get lost in endless play on a transatlantic flight.

Simply slide your finger across the play pad to record and tweak catchy drumbeats, memorable melodies and fat bass lines. Just bring your inspiration and Figure will help you take care of the rest.

Amazing! But I need more

This is the most intuitive easy to use mobile music making app on the market. There are only three things that stops this from being the ultimate mobile sketch pad.

1. Export to midi - the rhythms and compose mode, coupled with the awesome swing/groove settings are so much fun and easy to use it’s an absolute shame you can’t spit out midi to import into a DAW.

2. Sound Packs - the in built sounds are highly useable and with a little bit of tweaking can be very very good. But it’s a shame that you cannot purchase additional sound packs. It seems the obvious add-on and commercially could work right nicely for propellerhead. I’d splurge on new sounds in a heartbeat if the option was available.

3. Pattern mode - to sequence simple pattern changes. Part of the beauty of this app is it’s simplicity. So I wouldn’t want to introduce too much complexity. But man once you have a nice groove created it would be nice to create a simple arrangement with some patterns and scenes.

Please, please, please let us see these features in coming releases. But regardless, this is a killer app. And maybe the best sequencer I’ve come across in any form.

Best interface for writing music whilst travelling

I have used Figure since 2012 and thousands of tracks later, I am still impressed by the simplicity and brilliant execution of its design. Figure is to mobile music composition what Ableton’s session view is to DAWs. I hope this never gets obsolete or outmoded. 10 years on and I’m still finding new ways to twist that limited set of sounds to do amazing things. I wish there was an easy way to export all songs at once for 8 repeats each and to export MIDI. I’d also love for there to be a hardcore Figure enthusiasts community. Reminds me of the tracker days.

New stuff

I have been using this app for many years now. I love it with every part of me! It's the best app. Anyway to the point -it would be great if we could play way more notes at once. A way to make a longer than 8 bar track . A way to make you're own sound and if not then keep adding more sounds. Thank you!
