I should have posted this earlier...I guess I was just lazy. This is a pretty awesome app. You "paint music", the color you use determines the instrument; it plays while you paint but you can also save a "painting" for playback later. The note is bent by painting along the y axis, duration is controlled by paitning left to right. I don't think there are any standard audio export options, but it is a fun, easy musical toy. Plus you can rage and see what plays

Oh, you can export your composition as an m4a file or use Soundcloud...I din't think those features were available when I got it. Cool!

Cool app! Thanks for the heads up! I was enjoying messing around with this app when it got my daughter's attention. Now I'm not sure I'm going to get my ipad back from my her anytime soon. She's been having a blast drawing pictures and hearing the music they create. App is easy to use and works great!

Thanks for the heads up - for some reason it is reminding me of Instant Music for the Commodore 64...

I'm always amazed when I think back to what developers did with 64 KILOBYTES of memory and no internal storage.

...that also tangentially reminds me of a break-dancing game for the C-64 I used to love...I need to hunt that down.
