Sing a beat and have it automatically and instantly converted to a drum machine beat! Plus you can record audio tracks to fully capture your musical ideas - super fast. It's the ultimate musical sketchpad.
The revolutionary VoxBeat drum machine analyzes the kick, snare and hat sounds that you sing ("beatbox"), and assigns high-impact stereo drum samples to your beatboxed kick, snare, and hat sounds. It's amazing and intuitive. It is the easiest and fastest way to program beats: just sing them. You can also just touch the screen to enter or correct drum hits, in real time.
You can also add audio tracks to capture your ideas. Make a beat, sing a bass line, play guitar, sing a melody, mix, add effects if you like. Then you can export to WAV or AudioCopy, or link to another app via Inter-App Audio. Email your ideas or import via iTunes.
VoxBeat is the ultimate musical sketch pad looper and features:
-Five drum kits with 9 sounds each
-Additional drum kit groups for only .99 cents
-6 tracks total (3 for drums, and 3 for either drums or audio)
-Training capability to better recognize your own voice's kick, snare and hat sounds
-Preset saving and total recall

Ratings and Reviews
Very interesting concept
you can program a beat by beatboxing it. You can also manually enter, but singing it is more fun. The app is pretty deep if you go into the settings page. Nice one!
Does what it says, and well, but with no MIDI export—well, why?
I like the way this works. I’ve been trying Humbeatz too, and this is just ten times more usable. I wind up with beats that are approximately what I intended (though being able to change the quantization grid density would be nice), unlike with the other one. This /could/ become part of my workflow. I have long loved the idea of being able to create finished beats starting with beatboxing and/or tabletop drumming. (This app works great for the latter too.) But without MIDI out, I can’t do much with it without having to do an additional, manual step. Meaning, notate the beat on paper and copy it over to—say—Funk Drummer. Obviously, we’re spoiled with all this tech, but that’s kind of a pain, and it slows me down.
So much fun + useful for documenting music ideas on the go. Tutorial videos on the developer’s website are very helpful for learning and taking advantage of all features.
