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.

Makes piano technique more fun for kids!

This is coming from someone not using this app for performance, but simply for my piano students to have a free (!) app that acts as a metronome to practice scales and chords in a much more exciting way.
I loved it as soon as I opened it and love that the drums don’t sound like those lame MIDI instruments. Excited to find out all I can do with it!

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.

This app is Awesome!!! I looked all over the App Store for a simple drum beat that works not only well, but just the way I wanted !! Preprogrammed beats on the go with excellent midi capabilities!! Most people who are looking for beat or drum machines are not drummers lol
