Retronyms has partnered with industry giants like Akai Professional and Arturia to create some of the Tabletop-Ready Apps, like iMPC, iMini, and iProphet! Using the Tabletop features of time stretching and pitch shifting, you can slice loops and time stretch them to different tempos and pitches in iMPC Pro. You can also use sliced loops from purchased AudioCopy sound packs inside Gridlock and iMPC Pro. Loops from these sound packs will automatically match the tempo of your sessions.

Tabletop is an audio playground where you can create beats, compose songs, mix live, make mashups with samples from your iPod library, and more... the possibilities are endless. Plug the output of a keyboard into a delay to add an echo, or wire it up to a mixer and adjust the pan. Chain up multiple effects to create new and evolving sounds.

iCoSMiiCzz ,

Quite a detailed review.

Well for starters im gonna talk about the equipment available in tabletop
The drum machines, effect and the mixers are the things which i have absolutely no problem with. But such as the synth and the turntables, wheres the creativity. With the synth i can only see an ADSR option, it should be like a more watered down version of nlog synth, that would be a massive improvement. Reason for this is that users could be able to create new sounds and fx instead of presets. Also the turntable are ok...But when it comes down to sampling of them. Its a long and hard process. Maybe waveform view and chop markers? Now i noticed a giant bug with the ipad 2. It just keeps closing once trying to open the app, everytime. I hope this may have impact and take this review on critically. Because this app has major potential, and may even be better than certain over apps such as beatmaker if some work is put in.

As old as this app is it is still one of the best on ios in my opinion! As i have tried most of the big name apps on ios . And after spending a lot of money buying various apps over a period of 10 years or so. I still was not satisfied with the results i was achieving. Then I decided to give tabletop another go , as when i 1st bought tabletop i did not have a clue how to use it properly. Well what can i say apart from I’m very happy i took another look at this app, its amazing !!


Absolutely Brilliant

I’ve been using this brilliant app for about 7yrs, I still have so much fun which comes with creativity of this app. MISS THIS APP AT YOUR PERIL.
