iTunes Description:

KRFT is a new approach to music creation. Build beautiful interfaces from a toolset of musical cells. Make anything from a funky groove box to a full composition, and everything in-between. Open the door to new workflows and inspiration.

Moving away from the typical 80s multi-track paradigm found in most music making software, KRFT is a unique and inspiring way to create music. By combining a variety of loops, dials, effects and more, you build your own customized musical Surface. These interfaces are a collection of musical functions and ideas that can be controlled and interpreted in real time.

The nature of this workflow allows you to make expressive decisions on-the-fly and create dynamic compositions that would be difficult to achieve in typical music software.

Download it now and rev those creative engines!

MODULAR MUSIC MAKING
Don’t be confined by pre-defined interfaces, make your own rules! Want to build a song? Add loops and groups to build a structure. Need to add a layer of jam-ability? Add drum fills, live effects and filters. Now get jamming!

POWERFUL SOUND ENGINE
A highly optimised and high quality custom sound engine is at the core of KRFT. Choose from 50 Bass presets, 50 Lead presets, 14 Drum Kits & over 50 Sound Effects to make your creations. Go deeper and tweak filters, effects and more to make the sound your own.

NON-LINEAR COMPOSITION
Rather than writing a song from start to finish, KRFT lets you play and re-interpret your composition giving you the opportunity to experiment and add flair in real time. Record multiple takes and export them to your favourite audio software or upload online.

However... It's limited to the built-in loops and sounds. As cute as the interface is... Just feels like remixing/DJ.

Yeah, I'm disappointed by that. It looks like it would be a fun platform if they opened it up... but they'd probably rather sell you lots of IAP sample packs.

Yup, I really can't get into pre-made sounds and loops to make music. Blocwave or whatever it's called is well-made but I haven't used it since I bought it. I can imagine it might be good for ideas though and Blocs does allow new user sounds.

Are you guys talking about KRFT? It isn't limited to built-in sounds or loops at all. Every loop opens up to a fully editable piano roll. Every sound can be edited as to its envelope, filter, reverb and delay settings and more.You can build your own complex setups from nothing, laying down loops and controls wherever you want, or edit the ones included.

if this isn't apparent to people who use the app, I'd say they have a marketing problem.

While you currently cannot import your own sounds , you certainly can edit the included sound set immensely to create your own sounds , it is a pretty decent featured synth and as above says you can make whatever patterns in whatever key you want from them they are not loops. Its a really interesting little app and decently priced for what it gives. If they get ableton link and IAA support it will really shine( and they say they are looking into these features)

Developer here --- the sound engine is actually pretty powerful and tweakable. It's not premade loops at all. It's actually more powerful than many other apps --- and yet it gets put in the "DJ Loops" pigeon hole for some reason. Hopefully we can find a way to explain it a bit better!

We would love to add in some kind of sample import --- just want to do it in such a way that it's actually useful rather than just a tick box. Any particularily good implementations out there ? Dropbox seems like a good idea.

I think we meant changing more than just envelope and FX.

However... the app is very reasonably priced so worth trying.

Visually it reminds me of an 80's computer game. Good old Sinclair spectrum isometric perspective.

Hi, weepy! Sign up for an account and I'll set you up with developer flair so your comments stand out.

As for sample import, I believe I can speak for everyone with a heartfelt request of AudioShare! Nearly everyone in iOS music making uses AudioShare to manage their samples and recordings across all apps. It makes the whole business of sample management simple and intuitive. It is even easier than using Jailbroken tools that used to be necessary, like iFile file-browser.
