Bebot is a musical instrument that anyone can play. Instead of a keyboard, it has an easy-to-use touch control system. And it's all built into a friendly animated robot, who performs your music while you play.
Although it looks simple on the outside, inside is a powerful synth engine which lets you create and edit your own sounds and apply effects. The controls are easy to use, making it fun to tinker and experiment with sound. If you just want to get playing, there's also a wide selection of preset sounds.
The touch control system lets you lock in a scale so that you'll never play a wrong note, which makes it easy to play, even on your iPhone. It's polyphonic, which means you can use multiple fingers at once to play chords and harmonies. Plus, you can perform sweeping slides and expressive gestures that would be practically impossible on a regular keyboard.
While it's designed to be simple and fun, that doesn't mean it's only for beginners. Bebot has been used both on stage and in the studio by accomplished musicians and performers including Dream Theater, How To Destroy Angels and The Flaming Lips.
To see and hear Bebot in action, check out the demo videos at normalware.com, including a walkthrough demo by keyboard wizard Jordan Rudess.
Now with Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, you can connect Bebot to other apps such as GarageBand to record, multitrack and add effects, making Bebot more versatile and useful than ever. For more information about Audiobus, visit http://audiob.us/

Ratings and Reviews
Wow... on so many levels
this thing is stunning!
More for an iPad sized display than a phone I’d have thought.
Sounds are very good, think Herbie H / Dave Stewart.
I will be spending a lot of time with this one for sure!
Once again - Still Love It! Still Playing
I bought this back in the day when it first came out and I’m so chuffed with it. I just love the fact I can play it simultaneously with music tracks. The last update gave it some sound patches reminiscent of Jean Michel Jarre / Vangelis. Great stuff! Keep up the good work. (Oh and who knew..? The default preset sounds a bit like BB-8!)
My fave music making app
This app is the most intuitive and rewarding music app I own ...I’ve had it for years and it struck me the other day when I couldn’t open some other apps due to iOS upgrade that this might not always be in my life
Please keep this updated and don’t change much. It’s such a pleasure to play and for those of us not gifted with keyboard skills I’ve had the best lead solos out of this
Love for the Bot x
