Next Generation Creative Groove Engine

*** "There’s simply no other plugin out there with this exact functionality - Playbeat is the most powerful tool for rhythmic pattern creation and opened up a world of new possibilities for producers, composers and musicians" ***

- Musicradar, Nov. 2021 -

Playbeat is a creative groove randomizer plugin that generates beats and patterns for you.
Unlike an ordinary step sequencer, Playbeat creates patterns using algorithmic and random procedures for generating grooves by combining Steps, Pitch, Density, Flam, Volume, Pan and more.

Create infinite variations of the grooves while maintaining a sense of creativity, inspiration, and momentum.
No two patterns will ever be the same.

Unlike other groove creators that are limited to one specific algorithm, Playbeat innovates by using advanced sonic analysis algorithms to create or remix completely original grooves that never repeat and always sound great!

With the ability to generate and suggest different combinations for your beats on the fly, you'll always have something fresh and new, from simple pattern remixes to more complex drum beats.
The more you play, the more combinations you get.

With up to eight totally independent sequencers which can combine Real-Time Pitch Shifting, our signature Density feature, Flam strokes, Volume, Pan and more, Playbeat can create or remix infinite combinations of patterns in the most creative way.
Load up any audio file, edit or randomize the values and samples instantly. Let Playbeat take over and let it perform for you using our signature Infinity mode. There is no limitations on what comes out!

With Playbeat's totally new algorithm introduced to version 3.0, you now have the option to create unlimited remixes of patterns based on your current pattern to fit your entire song.
Edit your samples on the spot, and generate a new, fresh set of Remix patterns again and again.. and again.

The new Sample management and Preset management system allows you to add any folder from your computer, browse any sample and quickly drag and drop any sample to the Sequencers & Sample Slots to create your Kits.
Each Preset can be Previewed, categorized by Genre, or even swap Samples & Groove Patterns from different presets.

You now have the option to create your own personalized packs, all with your own Artwork, Name, Description and tagging, which you can export and share with another device or with another user.

I give this app 4 out of 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’m reserving the 5th star for the next update if they meet my requests. Best drum app & sequencer on iPad. Great beat starter for drums, percussion & sounds.I like the ease of use and the ability to save presets and recall them later for use. This is now my favorite drum app for creating patterns and rhythms in seconds on iPad hands down. It meets all my needs for getting ANY beat going with the new smart randomization algorithm. Use your own sounds or get there four FREE expansion packs. They also allow you to make your own expansions. 💭

***Next Update Must Have*** 👀🔜

-Add 64/128 steps (at 140 BPM no room for getting a rhythm going, only 1 bar).

-Add the ability to play/cycle thru the presets & create complete ideas.🆕

-Add the ability to save multiple presets in a preset to recall for song arrangement.🆕

-Add 16 sounds to fill my drum machine/ midi controller (complete a full beat/loop)🆕

-Add the ability to save a template to increase the work flow. (Drums ready for me)🆕

-Add the ability to save my midi mapping for each controller.🎹🆕
