- Record a cover song and show off your vocals: pick a loop, have a friend play guitar (keys, synth etc.), add a bass line and then sing or rap over it.

Ratings and Reviews
Prepare to be impressed
I got the iPhone version a while back and then got this when I got my iPad. Having more tracks and the bigger interface is pretty great. I'm a singer and I just love how fast I can record my new song ideas. I figured that if it's good enough for the Gorillaz to use on their album, should be good enough for mine, right? We've used tracks from StudioMini straight into Pro Tools for my new album. Great job on the iPad version, a nice companion to my iPhone StudioMini.
Easy Professional Recording
