Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
**Special introductory sale!**
This is the iPhone version of WerkBench. It has been completely redesigned for the iPhone and touch devices!
WerkBench is a new type of beat box with a playful interface and powerful features.
At the heart of WerkBench for iPhone is a step sequencer that let you instantly sample sounds into any place in the rhythm and then alter those sounds in real-time.
The concept is simple and powerful. You will be making beats and cool rhythms in seconds... and all of the sounds will be unique to you!

--"Fancy Controls" (pitch, lowpass filters, envelopes, and more!)
--Edit pitch and level independently for every step!
--Funky lo-fi tape echo for spacey effects.
--Save and load loops or whole sets of 4 patterns.
--Export loops and recordings via Audio Copy, iTunes file sharing, and email.
--Custom scales (never play a wrong note!)
We hope you love it!
Requirements: iPhone 3gs and up.
Werkbench is a fun sequencer that sounds really good.
The UI is clean and laid out nicely, although it looks kinda gimmicky with the kids wood block feel to it. Makes it seem kinda toyish to me.
A few things I would like to see for me to upgrade my review.
-Midi Clock sync
-be able to paste audio into the steps using Sonoma ACP or General pasteboard.
-sample editor (nothing crazy, just a way to trim audio samples)
-AudioBus (input and output would be nice)
Until there are easier ways of getting audio into the app it will just collect virtual dust on my phone considering I don't beatbox or make music with junk laying around my house.
Other than that it does what it's supposed to really well.
Better than iPad version
This is my favorite iPhone app by far. Fast, fun, easy to use. No unnecessary bells and whistles. Who cares if you can't trim samples? Embrace it's limitations and be creative with it. I honestly don't feel like this needs anything else.. It's perfect!
Simpler and more to-the-point than the iPad version. I use the iphone version waaaay more!
What a delight! WeekBench has quickly become my favorite beatbox and all around rhythm machine. Thanks for making it available for we non iPad IOS music junkies!
