Nord Beat is free and out now!

Clavia, makers of the beautiful Nord synthesizers, have released Nord Beat for the iPad. This 4-track CoreMIDI step-sequencer is free! It was programmed for Clavia by Jonatan Liljedahl, the guy behind BitWiz and Audio Share.

Features:

  • 8 Patterns
  • 3 Velocity levels
  • Velocity faders
  • Adjustable pattern length (1-16)
  • Copy/Paste patterns
  • Flexible cueing system
  • Shuffle
  • Mute button for each track
  • Tap Tempo
  • Pad mode with velocity zones
  • Load/Save song
  • MIDI Setup (Channel/Note number)

Buy Nord Beat on iTunes: Free


It is worth pointing out that although you can sequence 4-tracks, you can only sequence 1 note on any given track. This limits the usefulness of the app to just drums. I'm sure Clavia would like those drums to be in the form a new Nord Drum. Still it is cool and free, and nice of Clavia to make it open to any MIDI destination; rather than tied to just the Nord Drum.

For some reason this was pulled from the store very soon after it was released.
I like it; it's nice looking, easy to use, and gives you another way to sequence MIDI, whether you're using virtual, or core MIDI.
The price is also very agreeable.
