Here’re their top picks for Apps you can get today, that’ll help you on your musical journey –
Ryan: “I use this for tabs and reference for lyrics, since the times we busked, up till today – when we’re playing at bars and events.
Pro-tip : i upload local songs onto UG online so i can both carry them on the cloud, and start making singapore music accessible. UG is good for transposing and learning chords real quick. especially the good tabs/chord charts.”
Ryan: “if i had an iPhone, Acapella. Its good for recording layers and loops for multiple parts of a song and for generating some ideas!”
Merv: “I use it to create beats on the go! I love that long commutes can turn into music producing sessions.
It contains a step sequencer that can be used to quickly programme drum beats, and a sampler that I use to sample my beatbox sounds. This allows me to explore different grooves which I can then learn and use in our performances.”
Steph: “A familiar one to most people! I use it to listen to music on the go and even when I’m at home. I love that there’s a variety of playlists, and how I can discover new music with it.
I also love the idea that I can find music from a wide range of genres, from indie bands like A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, to music giants like James Brown. It has also been very useful in learning new songs and for rediscovering old favourites.”
