"... rocks like hell! I’ve never seen such a small music-application, that was so well balanced with the features."
"There's an app called TweakyBeat that we like quite a bit. It's a very simple monophonic synthesizer that's used in a step-sequencer-like way."
- Mouse On Mars (residentadvisor.net)
"Just been playing around with TweakyBeat. This is a great little fun app for synthy drum sounds. I love it."
You will make alive, ANALOG CIRCUITRY sounding, synthesized drum loops WITHIN SECONDS, while using a RIDICULOUSLY SIMPLE INTERFACE that makes this a joy. TweakyBeat is an uncommon drum machine with personality.

Many times I've felt indifference towards drum machines that are just a sequencer with a very common sound library with no real personality, haven't you?
I didn't want TweakyBeat to be like that. I wanted to built a simple drum machine that felt alive. TweakyBeat is quirky, monophonic and full of personality, and it produces electronic loops with tons of groove!
It's super simple interface makes you build loops in seconds.
It uses oscillators and synthesis, not samples, so you can tweak the hell out of those parameters, creating very alive, analog circuitry like sounds.
Just clear and fun to use.
Here's what some blogs think about it:
"You may be surprised what you can coax out of it with very little effort… This app should appeal to fans of minimal music"
"The iElectribe, Funkbox and TweakyBeat have become essential tools in my arsenal… [TeakyBeat] It’s a little drum machine app with a heavy swing and random option. Anything TweakyBeat creates could be a Berlinesque minimal track."

Ratings and Reviews
I remember downloading this app years ago. It's still consistently one of the best iOS apps I have ever used and it is still updated. This is my first review for an app. you can make ridiculous catchy beats in less than 1 minute of learning the app. Fantastic.
Great chip tune style drum/tone machine.
This is a very simple and easy to use app but surprisingly flexible and fun! It's Definitely a great tool for jams and idea sketching or creating drum sections for a chip tune vibe. Cool! I'm surprised it's free! Gj to the maker!
Wow it’s still here!
Was watching a moog documentary today and I remembered this amazing app. Thanks for keeping it going it’s a hidden jewel of the App Store.
