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.

Great app with even greater potential

I have used this beat making app for years now, before and after Alihoopa came along. Figure has never disappointed me when it comes to sheer ease of composition. Ideas are easy to generate and if you know your scales and modes, you can have a lot of fun here.

This DAW only allows for one kind of meter, so nothing beyond duple. No 3/4 or 6/8 which is a glaring omission. Other apps share this dissapointing limitation, but Propellerhead can do better.

I love their onscreen controls. The ribbon-style synth control is great, with the root notes darker on the control surface. The drum sequencer is remarkable.

My only want is for MIDI control as well. I could spend all my time using this app if only I could play their excellent sounds using my 88-key controller. I can do this with other apps like Groovebox and Gadget , which is why I am prone to using those more often than Figure. Of course, Figure is great on the train 🚃 where it may be difficult to use a midi controller. I just think it could be great for both home and mobile use.

Thanks for reading!

Glad it’s back in the right hands! Would love to see the new integration with Reason! I hope there is a way to transfer Thor patches into figure. I think that’s the engine Figure is based off of. That would be a game changer for me. Also a batch export function to get figure’s individual instrument wavs/aiffs and.... midi data (omg plz) quickly into Reason. Or hopefully you’re adding live midi out from figure into reason to control reason rack synths with figures wonderful sequencer.
On a side note, it would be nice if the Reason compact app (not this app) could match the same scales and swing as figure songs. This is my one main gripe with RC.... that and the auto save. Dear heavenly synth father, please get rid of auto save in reason compact. Love you guys
