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.

Ratings and Reviews
Anyone can craft killer beats with this superbly designed music maker. Lay down synth, bass, and percussion tracks with a few simple swipes, then tweak rhythm, tempo, and other elements until you like what you hear.
Fun music toy/tool
I admit I misjudged Figure. I gave it a second try a while back and it finally clicked for me. Maybe it was the inclusion of the "intro" in the current version, which wasn't present in earlier versions (and needs a switch to enable after it’s been dismissed!). Because Figure is simplistic, it was easy to misunderstand.
This isn't a professional musician's tool. You cannot edit the patches, and exporting stems for a DAW is probably clumsy (no automatic multitrack export, but I bet soloing a track and repeatedly exporting works ok). Still, there's no reason why Figure can't be used as a starter for a professional project or as inspiration. It certainly is fun to play with, and you can double the available tracks (or jam with a friend) by synchronizing two iOS devices (if you have access to another device).
I must apologize to Propellerhead for my earlier bad reviews. I get it now.
I love Figure.
I’ve been using Figure since it first released, and I still using it on a daily basis. Why use journals when you can say how you feel through easy to make melodies? I’ll still go back to old songs and either fine tune them or remix them entirely. I have no musical experience, mind you. I know nothing of song keys or structure. Choose a key, you’ve got eight bars, make something nice in a matter of a few minutes once you have it down. Devs, I would absolutely love to see the ability to two things: 1) Volume automation. Similar to how I can record the tweaks of different pieces of the song, I would like to be able to crescendo certain parts of the songs. 2) This one is a stretch, but I want the ability to send my song files to other friends with the app. Back when Propellerhead had the ability to share songs online, I’d share, have a friend download, then they remix it, then I download, then remix it... very lengthy process. Let me share my songs easily!
