Amazing groovebox that gives you an hypnotising music-making experience. It's an innovative step-sequencer and MIDI controller that lets you make unique loops and melodies. You don't have to be musical to get up and running - just randomly pinch and swipe away until something catches your ear, but also there are plenty of advanced synthesis features here too for the savvy musician.
The app is easy to pick up, it is fun to sketch out ideas. You can play for hours but also produce high quality tracks of any music style within minutes. Check the support page (2beat.io/oscilab) to see a 2 minute video, watch and hear for yourself what's it all about.

So Many Possibilities
This is a great app to explore. It is very easy to come up with an idea and then to morph it into something completely different. And then you can use MIDI to control other apps! Lots of fun and very worth it.
So much fun
Very intuitive. Was making great sounding grooves in no time. Still exploring all the possibilities.
Coming up dangerously close to the dreaded “1Y” since last update, from which few apps return. This needs to be updated for iOS 11. Please developer, do not abandon such a stellar app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
