ARNIE'S FAVORITE MUSIC MAKING APPS 2016 EDITION!
These are the Android apps that I immediately install on all my devices. They are my favorites for music and chiptune.
FYI my current devices are Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (5.0), Nextbook Ares 11 (5.0), and a Chinese netbook (4.something)
My OldBoy! GBC Emulator (has a free version)
Gameboy Cart Tool (free)
My OldBoy let's you LSDJ (Little Sound DJ http://www.littlesounddj.com/lsd/) on the go with pretty good sound and perfect sav file handling. Gameboy Cart Tool will let you manage those savs and import/export lsdjsng files as well as flashing your EMS cart! Essential!
PPSSPP PSP Emulator (has a free version)
Caustic Editor for VolcaSample (free)
Piggy time! PPSSPP has gotten very good at running LGPT (Little GamePark Tracker aka The piggy http://littlegptracker.com/) on every device I've tried it on (takes some fiddling with graphics settings at first). The Caustic Editor will let you record, trim, normalize, etc all your piggy food.
Caustic 3 (free demo, $9.99 to unlock)
I'll admit I rarely (ok never) end up finishing tracks in Caustic but it's just so damn nice and interesting I can't not recommend it. A fully packed synth/sequencer environment for all your noodling needs.
Audio Evolution Mobile Studio (free demo, $6.99 to unlock, additional FX available for $1-$3)
And here's the icing on the cake. AEM is a full-blown DAW with its own USB audio and midi drivers, plug-in FX, and unlimited tracks, buses, inserts, DAMN THIS THING IS BOSS! This is the kind of app that makes me super excited for mobile music making.
