Smule, popular for their Magic Piano, I Am T-Pain and Ocarina apps are at it again with MadPad. MadPad is essentially a simple sampler for your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
You can record the sounds around you directly into the iOS device and turn those into single “hits.” Tap on each sound to trigger it, and play it with an interesting rhythm and you have a fun beat made out of everyday sounds. The video above shows what can be done with random car sounds.
Here is the info from the app store page:
