How do you get kids composing, creating, playing and exploring? Give them some inspiring tools, some technology that allows for easy manipulation and creation. Native Instruments has been around for a long time creating hardware and software. They also are releasing apps for iOS devices, like iMaschine2.
iMaschine 2 gives you and your creative mind a way to create music anywhere, easy ways to rearrange those ideas that pop into your mind and then allows you to share your explorations with others. After all, what fun is music that you keep to yourself!? Give your students a real audience by making it easy for them to push their newly created masterpiece out to their friends, family and your community.
Seeing as how this app gives your kids an easy method of sampling and recording they will be fusing electronic alongside their voice/instruments without thinking twice about it.
You get pads, keys, step sequencer, arranger, a smart keyboard, sampler, and some really pretty colors in this new version. The smart play keyboard gives you a way to play chords, arpeggios and scales, all leading to more ways to get something that sounds “right”. If you have an iPhone6s you even get to make full use of the multitouch capabilities! iMaschine2 is one of the first apps to really dig in and use this new tech in a music app. Multitouch gives you a way to play different velocities, will change the repeat rate on the pads and gives you instant access through use of pop up menus.
