"... rocks like hell! I’ve never seen such a small music-application, that was so well balanced with the features."
"There's an app called TweakyBeat that we like quite a bit. It's a very simple monophonic synthesizer that's used in a step-sequencer-like way."
- Mouse On Mars (residentadvisor.net)
"Just been playing around with TweakyBeat. This is a great little fun app for synthy drum sounds. I love it."
You will make alive, ANALOG CIRCUITRY sounding, synthesized drum loops WITHIN SECONDS, while using a RIDICULOUSLY SIMPLE INTERFACE that makes this a joy. TweakyBeat is an uncommon drum machine with personality.

Many times I've felt indifference towards drum machines that are just a sequencer with a very common sound library with no real personality, haven't you?
I didn't want TweakyBeat to be like that. I wanted to built a simple drum machine that felt alive. TweakyBeat is quirky, monophonic and full of personality, and it produces electronic loops with tons of groove!
It's super simple interface makes you build loops in seconds.
It uses oscillators and synthesis, not samples, so you can tweak the hell out of those parameters, creating very alive, analog circuitry like sounds.
Just clear and fun to use.
Here's what some blogs think about it:
"You may be surprised what you can coax out of it with very little effort… This app should appeal to fans of minimal music"
"The iElectribe, Funkbox and TweakyBeat have become essential tools in my arsenal… [TeakyBeat] It’s a little drum machine app with a heavy swing and random option. Anything TweakyBeat creates could be a Berlinesque minimal track."
Check these app store reviews!!
• "What an addictive app. Intuitive and simple to use, you'll instantly be creating amazing original loops." - Screamlab (Canada)
• "Every now and then you stumble upon one of those cool little apps that turns out to be pretty sweet. It's a great little sequencer with some cool sounds. Kinda unrefined and not perfect, but thats part of the charm of old sequencers." - Shineumbreon (USA)
• "Minimal electro grooves are created in seconds! Possibility of editing and sounds really fun!" - AndrewTek (Italy)
• "Simple but amazing… This little app is great for producing glitchy minimal beats" - Callanish_H (UK)
• "Pure dirty, bleepy, filthy fun…" - AdSpace (UK)
• "… if you're looking for something maybe more to the music side of the "music toy" sort of app, this is your guy right here. If you're in the right sort of mood, you can just fiddle with this thing more or less forever." - Firstboyonthemoon (USA)
• "Good for minimal house, chiptune, and all sorts of stuff." - C.M. Bell (USA)
• "Excellent analog beats in a simple interface - exactly what an app should be!" - David Abranavel (USA)
• "Super fun, and one of the best I've found for making chiptone or 8bit style beats." - adoredregardless (USA)
If you were thinking about getting a similar hardware drum machine, it would probably cost you 100+ dollars, TweakyBeat is just 2 dollars (USA), so you can get TweakyBeat and still go buy the other one too!
Get TweakyBeat and start making those quirky beats!
What's New in Version 1.7
Midi Sync, AudioBus, and Inter-App Audio
Excellent drum synth app
I've played with quite a few drum and pattern-based music apps, but this one is my favorite.
The interface is straightforward and intuitive and the more in-depth features (being able to type the tempo, MIDI sync, etc.) give it an actual usability as part of a setup. The parameters are all tasteful and useful. While being a mono synth may seem limiting for drum patterns, it keeps the app from getting over complicated and allows for full view of everything that's happening all at once. Freedom to have any color be any sound you want allows for great expression where other drum machines and apps have you tied down.
Thanks, and I look forward to continuing my use of this app in my music production.
Great! UPDATE 2015
IAA plus MIDI plus Audiobus??!! WOW - greater than ever! Just ran it through ToneStack in AudioShare. Very nice!!
Still great - even greater with the new features. All my requests below have been added and then some. Nice!
The ability to record to aiff and the stop/start button are all this needed. OK -audio copy/paste would be nice.
Randomize and customize some loops, export them and further tweak in the DAW of your choice (Caustic anyone?). This is not your tired old drum machine!
Thank you for a fantastic, fun & feature filled app - intuitive, inspirational, & did I mention fun?!
