Frontier Design Group have released version 1.1 of BeatStudio for iPad, iPhone & iPod Touch. The update includes two new free downloadable sample packs, the ability to edits beats while playing or looping, two new snare drums, the ability to use the accelerometer to trigger sounds, and various bug fixes.
Playing, recording, and editing percussion sounds is fast and easy with BeatStudio. Bang on a custom drum set, build up patterns with multitrack recording, or change and adjust your beats with the precision editor. BeatStudio has an intuitive interface that’s easy and natural for beginners, yet flexible and powerful enough to accommodate experienced players.
Beat creation begins in BeatStudio’s performance mode. Sporting a clean, inviting layout, performance mode lets users quickly map a set of sounds (from a built-in library of 30 percussion instruments) to record a track. Tracks can be entered free-form, with a metronome, or along with a backing track imported with iTunes, WiFi, or AudioPaste.
Once the beat is perfected, a seamless switch to multitrack mode allows looping, editing, and layering of multiple percussion tracks. Flexible tempo and quantization settings control alignment for recording and editing. And a full screen editor provides the ability to fine tune tracks to fix stray timing, and add or delete events.
