S4 Industrial & Rhythm Composer - New free apps!

Sobal Corporation has been busy! They now have two free apps up on iTunes, that are actually worthwhile. Perhaps even more surprising, they a worthwhile free apps that aren't trying to hit you up for In-App Purchases!

First up, Rhythm Composer, got an update bringing in support for AudioCopy as well as Virtual MIDI. This elaborate groove-machine app has support for up to 64 patterns, making it one of the most versatile rhythm apps. This is right up there with the $20 iElectribe, including similar features such as instrument sound shaping and effects. It is limited too only a few samples, but I'm blown away by the fact that this is free.

Following right on the heels of that update is a new app that is also free! Industrial composer offers the same feature set, but this time with some "industrial" samples for your gritty grooves.

I have used s4 standard app since it first came out. I somehow let the industrial version pass me by. I agree completely that for free these apps are great. A developer that is on track with what his vision is and a developer trying to bring more features to his app to keep up with the ever changing music app trends. All while giving the app to all those that stumble across it.

This style is respectable in my opinion. The developer is trying to deliver a quality product while keeping monetization in check. EVERYTIME I look at apps like these it makes me think that the developer is really doing for the love of the game and his own growth in this business. He puts his hardworking and time into an app. Learns how to add more advanced features and gives them to his users.

I hope more people jump on board so the dev can work up a big enough following to keep on moving forward with his app development. I am a supporter and you are correct in saying this is one of those free apps that are actually worth having.

The app is more then a single noise maker and it has enough built in functionality that you don't feel like the app was thrown together without a common goal in mind. This app gets 4 stars from me. freesoul.
