Today INTUA released BeatMaker 3! This long awaited sequel dramatically modernizes the classic app to a full-fledged DAW. While every part of the app has been revamped, the biggest new feature in here is fully-integrated AUv3 support.
The original BeatMaker 2 was released on iPhone, and didn't gain iPad support until about a year and a half after the iPad 1 launch. BeatMaker 3 has launched as an iPad only app. Here's hoping it will be Universal someday!
