Heard of an iOS app called Beatsurfing? Since the world came to know about the app back in March, many were eagerly waiting for its launch. The app has finally arrived at the iTunes app store.
Beatsurfing is a custom MIDI creation app which helps users to create custom MIDI instruments directly on their iPads. Herrmutt Lobby and Yaniv De Ridder created and designed the app which was released by VLEK. The Beatsurfing allows you to draw a 3-dimensional controller and use it in two different and complementary ways.
According to the guys behind the app, you can tap it like you would with your regular MPC or any other beatmaking device, but the best and most innovative use you can make of it is definitely by surfing your fingers along routes, colliding with objects, triggering samples or effects.
Apparently, this very special approach to beat making and production allows for more creative expression and brings back a human touch and feel to your MIDI habits. It’s all about movement, and bringing back this intuitive way to make music.
Beatsurfing will be all yours for $11.99.
