Record your voice, your fridge, your neighbour's dog or let your computer speak and make loops and rhythms out of the sounds immediately.
RealBeat concentrates on simplicity and fast results. No steep learning curve or cluttered screens! Get creative in an instant!
RealBeat is a sampler software that enables you to record sounds, cut and loop them and create rhythms out of them. It also features an easy way to let your computer speak in different voices and use it as a source material for rhythms and loops. Finally you can export created tracks as ringtones to your iPhone (via iTunes).

Ratings and Reviews
Simple and useful
I've quickly made several rhythm patterns that I'm going to use in songs. It's very quick and easy to use, and a lot of fun. I wouldn't mind a few more features like a filter, adjustable swing, etc.
Could be a pretty interesting app, BUT...
I was really going to be happy with this, playing with interesting rhythms (2 against 3, 3 against 4, etc.) despite how simple it is, and probably overpriced, but then I discovered a HUGE flaw. YOU ARE FORCED TO DO EVERYTHING IN EXACTLY SIXTEEN NOTES. Not sixteenTH notes, but 16 notes, that is: one more than 15. I cannot believe how dumb this is. This makes it pretty nearly useless.
The writer of this program is very creative. This app is simply a joy to use. The elegance of the graphical interface cannot be overstated.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
