Every Monday, iOS Music Tunes will feature a piece of music made with an iPad, iPhone, or iPod – directly from one of our readers. There’s a lot of artistic potential in iOS devices, and iOS Music And You readers are putting all the fantastic tools to use in creative and exciting ways. This regular feature will be an opportunity to appreciate the interesting things that our readers are doing with iOS music, get some new ideas, and kickstart the creative process. If you’ve made some music with an iPad, iPhone, or iPod that you want to share, submit it now – you can get the info HERE. Now sit back and enjoy today’s featured reader on iOS Music Tunes . . .
Tell us a little bit about the piece, including what iOS devices/app you used to bring it to life.
This song was composed completely on NanoStudio, just like the rest of the tracks on my SoundCloud page.
Give us a little background on yourself as a musician.
I’m a Floridian drummer, formerly of Goldyours and Taste The Wine; I’ve played drums since 2000. I was introduced to experimental music early on and I have always been a fan.
Why do you use iOS devices to make music?
1. The convenience.
2. I got an iPad expecting to maybe use it for some minor M.I.D.I. control functions, having no idea about the range of synths available for iOS (!!!!)
Give us a quick tip – an idea that has helped you make your iOS music making more productive, fun, inspiring, or creative.
1. Use obscure drum sounds to play regular beats, and then tweak them to your own taste.
2. Use NanoStudio’s quantize function to generate (somewhat) random drum beats.
Give us a link to a place where we can hear more of your music and learn more about you.
You can check out all of Darc Miami’s music at SoundCloud Page.
