App Store Description

Figure makes it easy to create great-sounding music in seconds.

Create an addictive beat before the barista brings your coffee or lay down a beefy bass line while waiting for the bus to arrive.

Figure is intuitive enough for beginners to make music within seconds, yet deep enough for you to get lost in endless play on a transatlantic flight.

Simply slide your finger across the play pad to record and tweak catchy drumbeats, memorable melodies and fat bass lines. Just bring your inspiration and Figure will help you take care of the rest.
