"Addictive - Like a Deep House or Techno version of Brian Eno's Bloom and Trope apps. Uptempo ambient for headphones at work. Kids love it, too. One of the best generative music apps I've found." - Top Review
"This is a great app. Experienced musicians and laypeople alike can enjoy their music within seconds." - AppAdvice.com
"Another bold step forward in iPad musical devices, which turns networks of nodes into bumping beats." - Belinda Lanks - Fast Company's Co.Design
"Relaxing and Fun. If you’re the sort who enjoys playing with meditative toys like tabletop Zen sand gardens, you’ll probably enjoy this relaxing and visually appealing sound app." - Gianna LaPin - 148apps.com
"More than anything, it’ll be a calming oasis in the chaos that is a typical day in a modern city. If it all gets too much, as it inevitably does, just plug in your earphones and sculpt some sounds by moving around the nodes on the screen, simply making music and letting the ambient chimes wash over you. Until your boss tells you to stop messing around and get back to work, that is." - Kevin Holmes - thecreatorsproject.com
"If you like generative, reactive or ambient music- Nodebeat is a vital addition to your app collection. It is easily on par with the likes of Bloom, Slewpi, Aura flux, Curtis, Reactable and the rest and is super user-friendly...You can get lost in this ambient world for hours if you are just into playing at home, but if you are part of the new wave of live performers that are using iOS devices for live performances then you too should grab this app! You will astound your audience with mesmerizing spaced out grooves like never before!" - Zac Laurent - www.evolutionarymusic.org

Fun little app
This is a cool little music maker which plays relaxing random tones that you can control. The interface is easy to understand. You build your own tone generating systems that move slowly on the screen and link to each element when they get close to each other. This linking process sets up a new tonal or beat pattern. Just select “listen” and watch the demo set-up do it’s thing, or create one of your own. Very unique, interesting, and creative and fun, even if you have no musical talent!
I don’t even like music
But this app has opened up a whole world of play!
Loving NodeBeat for years!
I’m super happy to see NodeBeat getting some updates! Keep up the great work. ❤️
