Dubspot’s Top 10 iOS / iPad Music Production & DJ Apps of 2011

Music production software for the iPad became the rage in 2011. With the release of the iPad 2 and iOS 5 we saw improvements in MIDI connectivity, cut and paste across applications, and more processing power to run DAW-like apps. 2011 also saw major musical instrument manufacturers such as Native Instruments, Korg and Moog getting deeper into the app market while indie companies like Liine, BeepStreet and Shoulda Woulda Coulda continue to refine their groundbreaking apps. While it’s nearly impossible to pick our favorite applications, we took some time to select ten apps that have pushed portable music production into the future.
