Buddha Machine - iPad edition

By FM3 Productions Ltd

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The Buddha Machine is a palm-sized plastic box that plays meditative music loops composed by Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian.

The New York Times calls the Buddha Machine “beautifully useless,” while the Washington Post describes it as "bliss."

This iPad version allows you to mix the music of SIX Buddha Machines to create your own evolving ambient symphony!

Featuring hypnotic music designed to create a calming presence in today's fast-paced world, the Buddha Machine’s colorful charm provides an experience that is hard to define. Essentially, it's a box with a life; a tool for living, and to many, a friend.

What's New in Version 1.1

What the iPad was made for

Brilliant 69p app which is lovely and fun and just what I want from my iPad :-)


Nice sounds, great to combine the varying textures. Inclusion of the Audiobus sdk would make this app infinitely more useful & enable its inclusion in live performance. Please add Audiobus !


It's really good, buy it now.
