Figure is an iphone and ipad app for creating music and sound loops. To create music, you simply drag your finger across an instrument to create a pattern. You can combine patterns across drums, bass and lead guitar. Each pattern can be adjusted for tempo and key. The volume of each pattern can also be adjusted individually, then blended with others. When your happy with the music you have designed and created, you can export it to sound cloud or itunes, or send it to your classmates and teacher via email. It is a good app for students from grades 3 - 6 to use for designing and creating soundtracks to use in video/movie projects or to use as bumper music in podcasts.
