Propellerhead Figure Is Now Available

New iOS app is designed to make music-making fun, fast and direct      05/04/12

Following on from our Messe preview, Propellerhead has announced the immediate availability of Figure for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. They say that, fast, streamlined and fun, Figure enables even an inexperienced musician to make amazing sounding original music in seconds.
A Propellerhead PR person told Sonic State, "Figure for iOS is designed from the ground up for mobile environments where users want to make some music fast. Even non-musicians will quickly be playing their own beats and songs with drums, bass and lead parts. With an incredibly easy-to-use touch interface, Figure offers a huge amount of control with simple gestures. Figure is deceptively deep, facilitating many ways to tweak sounds and parameters--making it entertaining and inspiring to use for a minute or for hours. With major synth power under its hood, powered by Propellerhead's Reason, Figure sounds phenomenal too."
Ernst Nathorst-Böös, CEO of Propellerhead, had this to say, "In our foray into music making mobile applications we have discovered the interface and operating environment are, of course, different from a computer's--touch, small screen, earphones, no external input devices, etc. However, mobile users' aspirations are quite different as well. They desire immediacy, a diversion, to start playing fast and most of all to have fun. Figure fits those needs, giving people the great sound we're known for in an extremely engaging way."
