I've been creating mobile electronic music for quite a long time, ever since the first Korg Trinity. Jump forward 20 years and mobile music has evolved tremendously and now we have the king of touchscreen tech in the iPad.

There are seemingly thousands of music-making apps available for the iPad. Some are fantastic, some are downright loathsome. Finding a high-quality, truly useful app is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Enter BeatHawk. Made by desktop software aficionados UVI, Beathawk is a perfect blend of simplicity and sophistication. The sound engine is 2nd to none and its usability leaves most other apps in the dust. I'm blown away. Plus, being able to load BeatHawk as an AudioUnit in a more robust DAW like Cubasis is the icing on the cake. I’ve actually started using it as a go-to AU rompler as well.

The only downside I see is the amount of money I'm going to spend on IAP purchases 😂



Definitely one of my favorite music making apps, and I have most of them :) The IAP music packs are top notch as well, worth every penny. After browsing the manual for just a few minutes & watching the soundtestroom tutorial videos, I feel like I have a solid grasp of how it works. Its an extremely efficient and logical workflow , easy to get your head around & very inspirational. I consider Beathawk an essential app in the pantheon of iOS music making brilliance. Elite.

Great possibilities!


--When this first came out I bought it and didn't like it, they refunded my money (Apple used to do this). Yesterday it was free so I thought what do I have to lose annd so with a much more experienced perspective to how to use the iPad and apps I found that this is great!
I've bought a few of the iap's and loved them all so for me this is fun, easy to use and opens up a lot of possibilites for my duo.
Thanks for making this free yesterday!!
