Glow Beat : Glowing Beat Box
Glow Beat is the perfect cross between an old school analog drum machine like the Roland 808 and a lighted peg-board. There are eight sampled drums which you can program across a 16th note matrix as well as three memory banks which you can switch between in real-time. You can also adjust the volume of each individual drum and adjust the beats per minute in real time. The glowing theme is fun to play with for kids as well as adults and the timing is precise enough to use as a metronome. If you are looking for a simple and inexpensive beat machine to freestyle over or just a simple interface to learn or teach rhythm concepts then Glow Beat is for you!
This app has potential for bands or independent musicians that lack a drummer; where else can you find a drum machine at this price?! This app would be great for a dj that just wants a solid bass beat to scratch and mix over or a two-year old that likes to sing. Glow Beat is a smart app purchase any way you look at it -- enjoy!!!
