Ratings and Reviews
Bringing organic music to the iPad
Tons of fun "maps" set up with highly customized sound packs...played in time with the stroke of a finger (or more).
Like Lemurs customizable MIDI maps for us lazy folk...and there is even an Ableton MIDI contest.
This is the first app that has felt like I am making organic music with. The sounds are amazing and highly expressive. It maximizes space and pushes the limits of what you can do with a screen.
The only things I would love to see expanded is the looper feature (I would happily pay as an in app purchase if it were tweaked a tad), and IAA and AUv3 support (which I hear may be coming soon alongside some out of this world features like map editing!!)
If I don't want to put a project and template together in Ableton with Lemur, this has ALL the fun and versatility of the end product.
Thanks all. I REALLY love this app. As an experienced musician, I have hours of fun... And think that anyone could.
You truly created a new kind of instrument here like nothing I have seen!
Issue with looper
Ive been having an issue with the looper where it appears it will begin to smash all of the different input points at once. Meaning a simple 1-2-3-2 progression becomes a jumbled mess. Ive got an iphone 6 and the the ipad pro, 1st gen and they both experience this problem. Tried updating my phone because it was getting worse but its just life now. Ive been trying to record more and i cant get a single good session recorded because it consistently decides to add in its own archaic syncopation ): am I the only one being tormented by the rogue looper.
The 2 beat looper is fine usually, but thats it.

You’re not alone we’re working on it ;)
Great app with a few issues
I recently started using this app about a month or so ago and i absolutely love it!! I’ve used other beat apps similar to this but i really like the layout of this one. Instead of just pads you press it’s almost like a rhythm game where you slide your fingers across the screen to create music. I have been having issues with the looper and sometimes the app will crash on me randomly which could be because of the device i’m using (iPhone 5s). Other than that i love this app and am excited for future updates!
