Based on the very same audio and graphics engine as the Reactable, the mobile version brings a complete range of objects to multi-touch devices:
• Generate sound with a set of generator objects including are loop players, synthesizers, oscillators and input object.
• Modify generated sounds with a set of effect objects including wave shapers, delays, modulators and filters.
• Modify other objects parameters with a set of controller objects including sequencers, LFOs and accelerometer.
• Modify the settings of the entire table with a set of global objects including tempo, volume and tonalizer.
The new version gives you mobile access to the brand new *Reactable Community* where you’ll be able to listen and remix tracks created by your friends and musicians, to watch videos of their performances, to comment and to share your favorites.

Ratings and Reviews
NOT "crap" – plus how to use / how to import
Have experienced NONE of what Congas Jones claims here, this is a perfectly behaved and very usable app. I note that the other app he recommends was actually released same day as his bad review of this one, makes me wonder if his is one of those 'planted' reviews to try to divert people....... I say Reactable is worth a try and I suggest you make your own mind up, don't be trolled by suspicious rants!
PS There IS an online manual available via their website, also a page explaining HOW to load your own sound files so ignore those who say there are no instructions or no way to import your own sounds.
After having played around some more with this, I've completely changed my 5 star rating to a 2 star one. I was far too rash. The app crashes often upon clicking the menu button. The limitations to creativity are apalling; I don't see how I'm able to create anything decent with only 2 oscillators and sequencers at any given time. It might even be possible, if I could sample an instrument to then be used as a loop, of which 4 are allowed at any time. But you can't, and for that matter, you can't save an export a session either, making this app even more useless and time wasting. This is absolutely dreadful. I only gave it a second star because of the excellent concept. But as it stands, unless this app gets a major makeover, it's a terrible waste of money. Be warned!
This toy has huge potential, but lot's to improve, for example it is not clear will be samples synchronise as well as a duration of each sample? And most important thing in my opinion is that you have 4 loop boxes where you can set 4 different samples,this is far not enough to create a proper track or mix it well.. 4x4=16 samples you can play with in real time.. That's not serious guys. Also would be nice to see vsti's in futher updates! Some lack of instruments, but like I've said very big potential to it will become professional tool. Get this app, you won't regret!
