Music Composition Apps for Recording Ideas

Hello Composers, Mike here! :smiley:
Are you using any cool smartphone apps to record ideas for new music compositions?

I am currently using the “Music Memos” app on my iPhone. I simply use it to hum in ideas with my voice, then I can then drag and drop into Logic as a starting point for a theme, riff or rhythm.

I also sometimes use an app called Chordbot, which not only let’s you easily create chord progressions, but also has a lot of different playing styles with different instrumentation. Of course the sounds are crap, but it can be a good starting point for inspiration and ideas :slight_smile:

What apps do you use do record ideas with? Share your tips in a reply here. =)

Yeah I use music memos a lot. It’s amazing. You can record your idea. Add a baseline and drums if it’s a song and it will even let you add notes and lots of other great stuff (only on iPhone though)

And since it is in the cloud you can drag and drop it from iCloud drive into Logic! :smiley:

I tend to use only my voice, humming riffs, melodies etc.

I use Maestro, free and really good. I use it for voicing exercises mostly, as I can easily listen and hear the mistakes. Usually any time I sit at my midi controller I come up with a melody or chord progression. I record it and can develop and orchestrate latee.
