Bebot is a musical instrument that anyone can play. Instead of a keyboard, it has an easy-to-use touch control system. And it's all built into a friendly animated robot, who performs your music while you play.
Although it looks simple on the outside, inside is a powerful synth engine which lets you create and edit your own sounds and apply effects. The controls are easy to use, making it fun to tinker and experiment with sound. If you just want to get playing, there's also a wide selection of preset sounds.
The touch control system lets you lock in a scale so that you'll never play a wrong note, which makes it easy to play, even on your iPhone. It's polyphonic, which means you can use multiple fingers at once to play chords and harmonies. Plus, you can perform sweeping slides and expressive gestures that would be practically impossible on a regular keyboard.
While it's designed to be simple and fun, that doesn't mean it's only for beginners. Bebot has been used both on stage and in the studio by accomplished musicians and performers including Dream Theater, How To Destroy Angels and The Flaming Lips.
To see and hear Bebot in action, check out the demo videos at normalware.com, including a walkthrough demo by keyboard wizard Jordan Rudess.
Now with Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, you can connect Bebot to other apps such as GarageBand to record, multitrack and add effects, making Bebot more versatile and useful than ever. For more information about Audiobus, visit http://audiob.us/

Incredible! More looping functionality?
I absolutely love this app. It has honestly brought me so much joy since I’ve downloaded it, and I’ve used it in both casual and more “serious” musical contexts. One thing that I think would be amazing is updating the functionality of the looping on the app; being able to control exactly how long loops are, perhaps adding a click track, making much longer loops, and other functions would bring this to the next level for me. Thank you for making such an amazing product though.
Incredible App - Just 1 Request...
This app is something I randomly purchased back when I had the iPhone 4S, and amazingly, it was not abandonware, like so many other musical apps of the past. It went from simply a fun novelty, capable of keeping my 2yo daughter amused, all the way to a refined set of parameters that could be tweaked to make some super dope sounds and run inside of AudioBus 3 for using to make real music! What’s not to love? The only thing I would like to special request is a set of tweakable modulations and adjustable filter (for the brighter sounds) to go with the sounds and effects. Maybe an envelope for modulating the amplitude of Bebot’s vocals, a full controllable or even slightly limited (I don’t want to be greedy) LFO, and a simple resonant LP, HP, BP filter like what you find on the Behringer Neutron or something like that. That would make this absolutely top notch in the all time hall of fame apps, as far as I am concerned. Even if you do none of these things, it is still an incredible app, and I just want to sincerely say thanks!
It’s just an app for passing the time. My 7yo daughter and I enjoy it immensely. We don’t play anything as one would play a piano. It’s for having a good time. For just making nonsense yet at the same time it’s very soothing. Sometimes, when I’m just by myself I might pull it out and play with it.
I guess the app has been around since 2010, maybe ‘11. I’m glad it still is. It deserves its own place as something unique and not cheesy. I hope it never goes out of date.
Best regards to the dev and for the rest of the people, download it.
