This is a free app courtesy of Mixvibes. Here you can follow your dreams of becoming a beatmaker.
You can use the hundreds of pre-installed loops to create layered tracks across multiple genres like Deep House, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass, Grime and many many more.
This is extremely addictive as you play around with kick drums, snares, synths and loads of sound effects.
Very cool indeed!
Another incredible free music app is Radio Garden! Remember Google Earth from back in the day when you could spin a virtual globe and then zoom in on a random town anywhere in the world? If you do then you will get Radio Garden in an instant.

You can be in Oslo one minute and Sydney the next listening to their location radio stations... this isn't hours or enterianment...this is days and weeks of musical satisfaction.
