Does the perfect songwriting app for iPad exist?
Hey all. I've recently begun trying to use my iPad as a songwriting/demo tool. I've got an interface to plug my guitar in, and have loaded Garageband which I am semi-familiar with (I use Logic Pro for real production). What I want to do with the iPad is just sketch out tunes (rock songs, mostly) as demos for the rest of the band. I don't want nor need to be able to make professional sounding recordings with it. I simply want to be able to convey the basic feel, arrangement, and dynamics of a song to my fellow musicians.
My biggest issue I am having so far is with drums. Seems I either use one of the very limited selection of loops that come with GB, or I program the entire track by hand in the sequencer. I'm no good at being a drummer even with a real kit, and I certainly can't tap something useful out on an iPad with my fingers. Ideally, what I would like to do is have a good selection of drum loops that I can use as a starting point, and then edit them in the midi sequencer to fit the specifics of the song. Seems with GB for iPad the loops are all audio files, and so therefor can't be edited in midi.
Is there a better app for this? A better drum sequencer that can be loaded as some sort of plugin? Or a better library of loops that can be edited in midi?
Basically, I want to be able to get demos down quick with a minimal amount of drum programming, but still convey the sounds in my brain. Thanks!
