Recording music on iOS? Been there, done that. A major artist recording its latest album on an iPad? That's something new, and that's what Gorillaz has done for its latest release: The Fall. Anyone can listen to the album for free, but members of the fan club can give it a download and archive it for future posterity. How'd the band make it? We can't say, but surely there was some cell-shading involved, and here's the list of apps that were said to be used:
Speak It! / SoundyThingie / Mugician / Solo Synth / Synth / Funk Box / Gliss / AmpliTube / Xenon / iElectribe / BS-16i / M3000 HD / Cleartune / iOrgel HD / Olsynth / StudioMiniXI / BassLine / Harmonizer / Dub Siren Pro / Moog Filatron
We've included one track below for you to listen to yourself and hear what the pinnacle of modern iPad harmony sounds like. We're no music critics, but it seems safe to say it's no Tomorrow Comes Today — which we also embedded, purely for comparison purposes.
