Hi Tim,

what is your take on HyperTunes?

I haven't played with it enough to fully comment with a recommendation, but I think this demo video gives a good overview of the features and what it can do.

After watching all of the available tutorials on the HyperTunes site, it finally made sense as to why I really needed this app, as it provides a logical way to preview and arrange the thousands of MIDI files and snippets collected over nearly 15 years! HyperTunes contains a stock General MIDI Soundfont for playback but one can use a better quality General MIDI Soundfont if needed. The app has a decent number of demo MIDI files to play with, which really helps to grok how everything works together. For MIDIphiles, this app is a work of absolute genius and highly recommended! It's just awesome to be able and combine different elements and instrumentation....to experiment with various arrangements of a song before laying it all out in a sequencer or DAW.

I also bought NanoStudio this weekend and after playing with it for a couple of days, completely appreciate why this app has such a devoted following! The Eden synth is simply amazing and the programs's interface is extremely intuitive, so the workflow should prove to be quite efficient. Even without Audiobus, I can see myself doing most, if not all of my MIDI sequencing in this app!

Nanostudio remains the business. A steal at full price.

@Will fully agree with the Nanostudio :)

@Tim I did see the videos, I think the app overall is a built upon a good idea, but I'm afraid I can't commit to Hypertunes, especially after reading this review (the only review I found) http://evolver.fm/2012/07/09/hypertunes-promises-modular-songwriting-for-ios/

It has Virtual MIDI so you can control other apps, but still, albeit it's on sale today, I'd much rather recommend Genome!!

My 0,02 EUR

As the evolver.fm reviewer correctly surmised, HyperTunes works best with smaller snippets of sounds that can then be combined into sections or various arrangements of a song. Personally, I think the reviewer's approach was completely off base in trying to import entire classical piano pieces into the app! So many of these reviews that you find on sites (like evolver.fm), are pretty half-assed...because the reviewer probably spent an hour at the most, fumbling around the app without really learning much about it. They are worthy of a cursory glance but not much else!
