The Beat Station is a rhythm machine for practicing guitar, bass, keyboard, or any type of instrument, and also brings to production and live performance the ease of not requiring live drums and a drummer. You can control verse, chorus, transition, fill, intro, and outro sections using different modes of operation. Connect Bluetooth MIDI Pedalboard lets you control all sections hands-free. When you hear the rhythm patterns and start to control them live, it is truly like a versatile drummer playing along with you.

Easily play rhythm patterns with loop pads. Each rhythm style includes 12 rhythm patterns: intro, verse, chorus, six fills, two transitions, and outro. You can switch rhythm patterns in real-time as needed during your performance.

You can use the Pedal mode to play rhythm patterns with four footswitches. By using a Bluetooth MIDI pedalboard, you can perform operational tasks without having to take your hands off of your instrument.

You can connect rhythm patterns to create a complete drum track that's appropriate for your own song, and play it automatically.

Luv it....... where ya been all my life!!!

As a bass player who plays a lot alone, this app has been the breath of fresh air I’ve needed to rekindle my passion for just plucking around on my bass. I arrange a song pattern on the app and throw some patterns and notes at it, just as good if not better then having a drummer in the room with you. Now the price for a year of use is reasonable so thanks developers

I like this app but it needs some changes

I was hoping for more variety on the loops. So I spent hours doing the sequence for a song to get it just right. It would have been SOOO much easier if you could play the sequence at any place in the song instead of having to start all the way back at the beginning EVERY time. I needed to fix the bridge sequence several times and had to go through the entire song every time. More instructions would help too. I thought I was saving my changes every time I hit 'save', not so…learned the hard way how to save my work. Please fix. I hesitate to pay $30 until these issues are resolved. Very time consuming but I would gladly pay the $30 otherwise.

A few things I would fix

The pop acoustic kit has a good sound to it and enough variability in the beats to make the standard version interesting.

One thing that’s frustrating is that the tempo resets to 100 every time you switch the beat from say pop 1 to pop 2.

Other than that this app seems useful for practice. I wouldn’t be a hardcore user that would buy the premium version to compose in and then export midi. If anything I’d want to see a one time fee to just unlock all of the sounds.
