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.

So much potential here! Was amazing but feels dated now.

When this app came out, it was everything I wanted in a tablet jam station, but the aesthetic, performance and method for instrument integration hasn't remained current.

I think if they showed it some love, it could become a welcome alternative to aum- reduce the highly skeuomorphic look a bit, open up compatibility to auv3 and maintain support for the latest screen sizes and it would be truly competitive and appealing to many people. The spatial/environmental metaphor is extremely well-executed and has many thoughtful touches; it is a rare case where the interface adds to the fun of making music, but is still competent and sophisticated. Here's hoping there is a plan for tabletop, it deserves to live on!

RS3 patch editor wont work!

It was only a dollar upgrade, but it turned the RS3 into a REAL synth. I cannotaccess the patch editor within tabletop; and standalone version crashes immediately whenever i open it! I really was getting into all the sounds of the RS3 thru the patch editor, but that functionality now seems lost; its no more than a preset bank with ADSR….. WHY?????
