SoundSlate iPad App Review.

Are you looking for a way to easily mix up sounds to create an interesting new tune or even an innovative speech? Well, guess what! Now, there's an app that's especially designed to help you do just that. So, instead of going to a recording studio or to the store to buy the necessary devices, just go to the AppStore and download SoundSlate.

How SoundSlate works

SoundSlate's main purpose is to help you mix up different sounds. Whether you're a DJ, a musician or even a magician looking to create a one of a kind mix of sounds, SoundSlate is all you need to reach your goal. It's easier and faster to control it instead of using the devices in a recording studio. Plus, your final project will both sound and look good.

Once you download SoundSlate, all that's left for you to do is add as many soundboards as you like. Each soundboard is made up of multiple open spaces for you to add the sounds that you like. Just tap and hold on an empty space, and you're ready to go. You can choose a sound from a very diversified list provided by SoundSlate, or import it from your iPod Library. After settling upon a certain sound, it's time for you to add some final touches so that you get exactly what you are looking for. You can choose to activate the fade in option, fade out, repeat or stop other sounds while playing this one. Also, instead of picking up a song from your library or the SoundSlate playlist, you can add your own recording.

When you're done with the sound, it's time to move on to images and notes. If you want to make your sound more visual, you can add a picture from your photo library, your camera roll, take one, or pick a color. Therefore, when you're faced with a board filled with sounds, it will be easier to spot a certain sound, just by looking at it. Also, you can add notes and labels for a better differentiation of a particular sound from others. Once you've added enough sounds on the board, you can start playing (with) them. Tap once on every sound to play it, and again, to pause it. Or, better yet, pause or stop them all with a single tap on the buttons at the bottom of the screen. And, let the fun begin!

Too expensive for its features

Unfortunately, it's not all sunshine and rainbows with SoundSlate. While it is really easy to add a new sound, edit the soundboard or access the help menu, when it comes to editing a certain sound, this might prove to be a bit frustrating. I don't know if it's a bug or I misread the instructions, but I couldn't edit any sound after adding it to the board, no matter how hard I tried. And, since the app is not your average 99 cent app, it's only natural to expect the best from it.

All in all, SoundSlate is a useful app, if you're a DJ, a musician or even if you're just looking to make a speech seem more appealing by adding background sounds. However, if you're just looking to have some fun while mixing up sounds, SoundSlate might prove to be a little bit too expensive for your taste.
