Another day and another dubstep app. How many apps are in the iTunes store have that siren sample included? Because I review and demo a lot of apps I’ve noticed the same loops popping up in different apps. Go figure! And with dubstep apps there are a lot of apps with similar names. Dubstep Maker? That’s another app! While there’s no doubt dubstep apps are popular, it is getting ridiculous the amount that is popping up with very similar features.
Dubstep Music Maker has flashy HD paticle effects and Neon Retina graphics. What? The background graphics pulse and glow along with the music. While it’s a neat trick, the rest of the design is lacking in detail. There are 9 groups of squares that contain all the sounds. Your typical MPC inspired pads. Above the squares are smaller squares that you flick through to access more sounds for that particular group. There’s no order to what’s stored in the squares and you can’t replace the sounds within a group with something else. You can’t do much actually. Unless you’re memorized what’s on each pad playing is a hit and miss affair. Which is a shame as there are a few nice sounds. But like I said before: the sounds are familiar and are your typical dubstep stereotypical sounds. In other words don’t expect anything great.
But is it any good? I like the visuals. They’re not that great but without the flashy visuals the rest of the app would be pretty boring. On the whole the app is under done (the design of the pads for starters). On the most part the sounds are OK. There’s no effects section and it isn’t Audiobus compatible. For $0.99 it’s not going to break the bank, it’s no going to inspire to create amazing dubstep music either. As a party trick it wins hands down.
