Portable Music Studio App – Beathawk


Beathakw by UVI has got to be one of the best looking apps I’ve seen in a long time! This is one more amazing iPad app to add to your toolbox – currently it is listed for only $4.99 which is an introductory price.

The app has a bit of a different approach to working with what at first seems a pretty familiar interface – for instance…. if you have a melodic instrument attached to one of the 16 pads you can go “into” that pad to get to a keyboard of sorts that will then allow you to play melodies. There are several other interesting takes on “conventional” methods of an app like this.

The design is beautiful and the sounds are wonderful. The capabilities you gain from an app that is only $4.99 makes this well worth your time and the space it will take on your iPad!

There are a bunch of videos on their website that you go watch to give yourself a great understanding of what the app sounds like and is capable of.

Here is the list of features….
