If someone would have told me about this app 10 years ago I would have said how good can it possibly be? 10 years ago putting an app like this on a device as small as an iPhone was simply unheard of and even IF you could it would not have even come close to being useful, let alone good. But since the invention of the iPhone things have changed tremendously. BeatMaker is for those that are really into music and want to let their creative juices flow.
With BeatMaker you can arrange or “sequence” any sort of beat and sound you can think of. One can make their own sounds with downloaded or recorded Midi data enabling them to add different sounds or instruments to their creation.
The interface for this application can be somewhat overwhelming when first using it, I would suggest before diving into it that you read the instructions that will pop up when you first load the program, the instructions are very detailed and informative.
Also with BeatMaker you have a total of 16 drum pads ready and at your disposal, all are numbered and named for easy identification. Tapping a pad will give you the selected sound whether it be drum, snare, hi hat, violin and so on. The pads respond quickly but have been known to delay, especially if you sample across two adjacent pads.
There are so many options on this application one cannot simply remember all of them, honestly it is an app you just need to see for yourself, if you’re a musician that likes to create your own beats and sequences and work with different tracks I would highly advise this application. At $19.99 (U.S) it is a little more than your other iPhone apps but if you love music and creating it you will love this app.
