Tell us a little bit about the piece, including what iOS devices/app you used to bring it to life.
I used Loopmash on my iPod Touch and then sampled it into a Korg Micro Sampler. I then sequenced and recorded the song into a Boss Micro-BR.

Give us a little background on yourself as a musician.
I’m an ex-drummer, but I still play congas. I got into iOS music after selling hardware that I never could find enough time to use.

Why do you use iOS devices to make music?
There are several reasons:
1. Ease of use
2. It’s portable.
3. It sounds great.
4. It’s innovative.
5. There are new apps all the time.

Give us a quick tip – an idea that has helped you make your iOS music making more productive, fun, inspiring, or creative.
Get a USB audio interface for your iPad – it opens up a whole new world of sampling!

Give us a link to a place where we can hear more of your music and learn more about you.
