Propellerhead has announced the immediate availability of Figure for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Fast, streamlined and fun, Figure enables even an inexperienced musician to make amazing sounding original music in seconds.


Figure makes music making fun, fast and direct

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.

“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,” says Ernst Nathorst-Böös, CEO of Propellerhead. “Figure fits those needs, giving people the great sound we’re known for in an extremely engaging way.”

Figure features

  • Make songs with drums, bass and lead synth.
  • Play by sliding a finger across the play pad.
  • Always stay in key and on the beat.
  • No previous playing skills required.
  • Tweak and twist tracks on the fly.
  • Sounding amazing has never been this easy.
  • The sound of Reason on an iPhone, powered by Kong drum designer and Thor synthesizer.

Figure is available to purchase at the iTunes App Store for 0.79 EUR / $0.99 USD.
