bip is a fantastic creative tool for playing, recording and performing musical rhythmic patterns. Starting with the simple idea of a programmable generated beat, touch and hold gestures are used to select beats and patterns. Patterns can be mixed and matched along with a touch-strip controller for transforming beats. Choose from track templates for quickly creating tracks or spend the time importing and tweaking beats with your own samples.
bip offers hours of creative composing and live performance.

Features :
• simple and clean interface
• create a variety of rhythm's while touch hold and slide finger across beats
• all beats can be programmed to play in time including complex sub-divisions
• a touch strip for changing parameters of any beat, loop or entire track
• record beats and parameters to create expressive musical patterns
• arrange patterns on the fly for each track
• use to compose, arrange AND perform live
• load track presets for quick music making

Ratings and Reviews

Great little groove box


Once you learn the user interface and how it works (which isn't hard thanks to a clean and clever design), you'll be making grooves/beats/tracks in no time. Really fun, sounds good and it's fast to work with. So this will be one of those apps that I, alongside Figure and iKaossilator, quickly can grab on my phone and lay down some beat with, wether I'm at home or out and about. The main difference here being that with bip you can actually produce more complete tracks then with the mentioned groove boxes.
It works just great on the iPad by the way, so don't worry about it not being universal (at this point at least).

Love It

I find the bad reviews this app is getting to be unfair. If you know anything about music then bip is a piece of cake. (There is included documentation if you need it but I didn't.)

The interface is clean and pretty, the pre-loaded sounds are great, and it's fun and inspiring to use. The Dropbox implementation is fantastic and I can't wait to load my own sounds into it soon.

I'm tired of people ripping on these amazing apps because they don't know what they're doing and they expect the developers to hold their hands and teach them how to be musicians. Go to college and be an accountant or something.

Already awesome, can get better


This is already a fantastic app. Only took a couple of minutes to get acquainted and I was up and running. Think of it as an advanced version of Figure. I do have a few recommendations.

1) Longer retrig lengths for individual beats. Unless I'm missing a setting, it's hard to really drop much in the way of a pad into the mix.

2) File system for samples. It would be great if I could put all my drums, basses, and leads into different folders for easy grabbing.

I'm definitely looking forward to using this to generate fodder for my octatrack!
