With all my love, I have created a folder together the best mobile applications to support musicians . Musical discovery, composition, sound editing … There will be something for everyone!
Basically, I planned only to present some of my shots hearts applications. (Just as I had done for software in my article 6 free software and essential to compose ). However, given the number of interesting applications on the market, I have not managed to make my choice. So I decided to do things thoroughly amount you a complete file listing the best music apps across all categories. (Yep I’m like that myself p).
You will see that I have done my best to try to offer you the greatest possible free applications . However, you still find some paid apps in this ranking because for some of them, I just did not find the same quality of free counterparts (and personally I prefer to focus on quality for free ;) ) .
Similarly, I have tried to offer applications that are both compatible for iOS as Android . Unfortunately, in some cases I have not managed to find versions for both processors. Do not be surprised if you see some of the submitted applications are not compatible with your smartphone (but in most cases I did manage to you find other applications for similar functions ;)).
I hope this folder you will find some useful and fun applications. Meanwhile, I suggest you equip your smartphone and fasten your seat belts because I will take you immediately to a little trip around the musical sphere on mobile!
