Sure, You Can Make An Entire Song on the iPhone, But It Will Probably Suck

Not your path to musical greatness, if this song is any indication.
An Israeli duo calling themselves Ilan & Sipo have posted a video on YouTube showing off a song they made entirely with an iPhone. Aside from the final Pro Tools session, every last note, effect, filter and vocal recording was done using the Apple smartphone. So is it any good? Well...

First: it took over 17 apps to get the job done on "Blanket," including virtual recreations of 303 and 808 synthesizers, theremins, string instruments, drum machines, and analog synths. 

Impressive to be sure, doing all that work on a tiny device. But there's one thing being overlooked here: the music itself isn't actually good.



I think I'll wait a couple days for Gorillaz to release its iPad-produced opus (on Christmas Day) and listen to that. Nonetheless, here's a list of all the iPhone apps used to make the song, according to TechCrunch:

iShred
Bassist
Thereminator
NlogSynth
Aragon
Retro Synth
ThumbJam
Ellatron
Beat Tap
DB-303
i808
ReBirth
Shaker
Drum Meister
iTimbales
3D Drum kit
AudioMicro
