*Reactable Mobile* enables you not only to create your own sound tables but also to act as producer by remixing tables of fellow Reactable musicians, adding your personal touch and share it again in a seamless way.
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
Slick, but Really Limited
Reactable has a really nice looking interface, and does introduce some pretty fun ways to directly interact with the playback of loops. That being said, the app is pretty limited in what it can do. I was expecting something more on par with Jasuto, or with the generative qualities of Aura Flux, or at least the ability to do some more complex manipulation of sound. Reactable offers a slick way to fiddle with the standard fare of filter sweeps, eq, etc, but doesn't go farther. Also, if you are looking for a compositional or sound design tool, look elsewhere. Reactable only sounds good when it's playing back loops you've created in other apps. It's ability to generate original interesting tones is very minimal. But if you are looking for a fun, touchy-feely way to play back some loops, Reactable could be the app for you.
Are there any intelligent developers left?
And the last update is unstable crashing Reactable all the time now making it useless now. Sigh.
Loading the update wiped clean what I was working on! I am really starting to get sick of irresponsible developers!
Last Kindle update made it completely unusable.
iOS 8.x should never have seen the light of day.
iOS 9.x has pregnant pauses and erratic performance issues with the last two updates.
OneNote last update causes the app to freeze when using 'x' to delete more than 4-5 characters in a large text only documents.
I could go on.
What I am seeing are developers that don't want to invest in QA/QC and just dump their buggy product on their customers and use us as beta testers.
Very special very deep
It’s not a DAW, it’s it’s own thing, a playground, laboratory
