Beatformer makes basslines & drums punch like Mike Tyson on a bender!
Lucked out & grabbed this when it was free for promotional period. This plug is magic, multibrand compression but in a more user-friendly package with a couple of its own tricks. It’s also great for making worn-out drumloops sound fresh & by how it emphasizes or ducks certain freqs & transients. I use this with Beatmaker3 & the plug’s never caused BM3 to crash, very stable.
The presets it comes with are good starting points & useful. Only feature I wish for is user patches, I often want to save settings to use on other tracks but have to dial them in every time.
All said, a must have app for iOS & DAWs.
I really like this AUv3 effect, makes my drums sound sweet. Just wish I could save my own presets but other than that good stuff. Cheers to the developer for making a solid AUv3 effect that’s free.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback and for reviewing Beatformer iOS app.
We are looking into this at the moment, so keep an eye on future updates!
Also, Beatformer will be free until the 11th of March so make sure you let your producer friends know. :)
Great sound for free, some audio crackle though
The app is wonderful. It does a great job at sculpting drums. I find with some of the settings, it’s best to separate any hi hats into a separate track and leave this to kicks and snare. Seriously the sound is great. Only problem I have is some audio crackle when I adjust settings or a knob o this plugin. Definitely a must have.

Thank you for your feedback. We’re so glad to hear you’re enjoying Beatformer!
As far as audio crackling is concerned, crackling issues are usually related to older generation iPads due to insufficient computing performance. We are looking into some optimizations that will enable Beatformer for iOS to run a little better in older iPads.
If this is not the case with your iPad, then it might actually be a bug, so please send an email along with a sample at email@example.com.
Either way, keep an eye on future updates - we’ll never stop improving for you! :)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
