Bebot - Robot Synth
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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 simple 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.
Although it's been 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/

BeBot, you tireless little tone machine!
It's blows my mind, no matter how long I play him; no matter how many octaves I put him through and how many chords I push on him, BeBot never gets tired... He just belts out note after note with confidence and a smile, pitch perfect! I love you BeBot. Charming and humorous interface aside, this is one serious and powerful app. Best synth out there and probably best music app altogether!
The app is perfect - it would be on another level if they integrated the ability to record sessions... Then maybe evolve to dubbing / multi-tracking. Please consider!?!?
Do not underestimate this app with its innocuous cute little robot face, it is a formidable synthesizer and makes for an incredibly expressive, lush performing instrument.
Despite owning countless super complex, new age synthesizers on iOS, I constantly find myself returning to bebot for a real solo. This is one of those few rare apps that you can play the bassline, organ riff, grungy guitar solo, cheesy saw flourish and bells on, simultaneously and on the *same* patch. Lovely.
Controls are fluid, the snap and the glide as well as the subtle LPF on the y-axis controller are perfectly calibrated for maximum eargasm, nice selection of oscillators ranging from sweet sines to thick drippy PWM, the effects are ultra-satisfying and boy oh boy that suboscillator hits the spot.
Bebot, I'm a slave4u.
Love This App!!
Besides being a great app for music noodling, this is one of the best apps for babies I have found. My 8 month old loves to play with Bebot and the controls are so basic, she doesn't accidentally exit the music making screen. All around awesome app for any age!
