From the ashes of Glitch comes Glitchamaphone for iPad

Online multiplayer social game Glitch may have given up the ghost this past weekend, but the game will live on in another form as the basis for a music creation app for iPad. Glitchamaphone, from developer Tiny Speck and audio designers GL33k, is bringing stylish music-making soon to iOS.

In a quick walkthrough of Glitchamaphone's features, the music creation app's creators show how to play and edit your own tunes. The spin-off app is capable of recording a user's real-time input and a grid-based editor makes more precise adjustments easy. Glitchamaphone is wrapped in the softly animated style of Glitch, Tiny Speck's MMO that folded after failing to find a wide audience.

According to a report from Venus Patrol, Glitchamaphone was originally planned to integrate with Glitch itself, allowing users to upload their creations to the game for others to share and remix.
