Smule’s been racking up the hits with apps like Ocarina and I Am T-Pain. Their latest is called MadPad, and like the others, it’s well-polished, cooler than an arctic popsicle and impossible to put down. And today, it’s free.
The app lets you sample sounds from your environment and save twelve of them — along with a little video clip for each — as a set to play with later as a kind of drum kit. Which is pretty cool.
But the real hook is browsing all the sets users have uploaded online, or sharing sets through Twitter, Facebook or email. I can’t get over how slick the app is, too — well put together, and just super-fun to play with.
It’s only free ’till the end of the day today though, so jump on it. Also, I Am T-Pain 2.0 is on sale for a buck, in case you’re interested.
Edit: As rockarollr’s mad detective skills have sussed out, there’s also an HD iPad version — which he apparently couldn’t get to work. Seems to be doing ok on my iPad 2, though. Is the app quarreling with older iDevices, perhaps?
