Making music with the Smule MadPad app is addictive

Smule MadPad

(CBS) - Attention, music fiends, this app will blow your mind.

Smule's MadPad, which is available on iPhones and iPads, is a virtual music instrument that's super easy to use. All you have to do is tap on a grid of audio-video clip samples to create beats and what-not. You can create your own samples too, by the way, or use ones Smule provides right off the bat.

Check out the video above for what could possibly be the sweetest use of the app.

If you find yourself creating a total masterpiece of a sound sample, you can share it with Smule's community for other players' use.

Interested? The iPhone version of the app will set you back $0.99, while the iPad version of the app will cost you $2.99. If you ask us, we think that's a small price to pay for hours - maybe even days - of fun.

Check out the videos below for other groovy uses of the MadPad.
