Canadian musician and YouTube personality Andrew Huang has now released his very own iOS app called "Flip", a music sampler app for beginners and already capable of doing their own music.
The new sampler app was developed and created by Huang, along with other musicians and music app creators such as Oliver Greschke, the creator of the Elastic Drums and Elastic FX apps, and Christian Blomert who developed the TouchAble and Studiomux apps.
Flip is described as "the most powerful portable sampler" and will become a 9-channel sampler. Music can be created and produced, and the process would encompass even from start to finish (from scratch up until exporting). Every track will have its own EQ or balancing capability, equipped with a variety of audio effects. There will also be an amount of 19 automatable parameters.
Music arrangement can also be executed on the app. The music editing aspect could also be run through a midi keyboard that is already set inside the app. Tools for mixing and mastering, audio exporting, and live recording are also available for Flip. It also is equipped with an Ableton Link to support its stem exporting and project sharing options.
It also features an additional sample packs option, wherein users can purchase other music sample packs and Flip projects produced by Huang and other music producers such as Bad Snacks, Cuckoo, Kilamanzego, Rachel K Collier, Pusher, and Chuck Sutton.
The Flip creator states that he conceptualized and made the app for music producers who are beginners, amateurs, or professionals in creating music. He aims to give a music experience to music creators in which they could explore more on their creativity, as well as to provide an "intuitive and fun" music production process.
