Every week, 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 . . .

Sweet 16
Gunn Rouche

Tell us a little bit about the piece, including what iOS devices/app you used to bring it to life.
It’s piece was made with a bunch of new toys I picked up (Magellan, iPolysix, & Loopy) and some old ones (DM1, Sunrizer Synth, & NanoStudio) all made entirely in app this time using Audiobus and MultiTrack DAW to bring it all together.

Give us a little background on yourself as a musician.
I’m an amateur musician. I’d fallen off the production bandwagon due to other (career related) commitments, but I’m looking to put some more stuff down now, on the move.

Why do you use iOS devices to make music?
Mobility and convenience – I can be anywhere and throw down a beat or riff. Also . . . some of the sounds that come out aren’t half bad.

Give us a quick tip – an idea that has helped you make your iOS music making more productive, fun, inspiring, or creative.
Figure out your workflow first – since the last time I put something up here, I literally sat down with a pen and a bit of paper and worked out the best way for me to put tracks together; from sketching out ideas, to recording, to pushing midi blocks around, to mixing and promoting. Workflow is personal so there is no one right answer – try a few options and find what works for you.

Give us a link to a place where we can hear more of your music and learn more about you.
You can check out more music from Gunn Rouche on his SoundCloud site.
