Beat-Machine Update

Beat-Machine was released in 2012 as an MPC-style Universal iOS drum machine. Today it got its first update since 2014 with added Ableton Link, improved MIDI output, and faster sample loading. This update also removes IAPs and makes everything part of the $2 price-tag!

What's new in Beat-Machine v1.4:

  • disk streaming sample player (much faster loading times, samples do not use any RAM)
  • improved MIDI output, bug fixes (MIDI responds on all channels)
  • mute and solo buttons added to mixer
  • Ableton Link
  • IAA Transport
  • Note repeat
  • Transport in the toolbar
  • new color themes
  • IAP's become standard gear
  • overall faster performance

Pioneer DJ Toraiz SP-16

Pioneer DJ Toraiz SP-16 is a wild new bit of gear from Pioneer and Dave Smith Instruments. Dave Smith makes some excellent synths, and more recently he's been doing some interesting collaborations. This Sampler/Sequencer is the weirdest by far though as Pioneer tries to get in on the standalone performance instrument market. The TORAIZ SP-16 looks amazing, I love those sequencer buttons, but it's pricey at $1,500.

DJ TechTools got some hands on time with the new instrument. I've embedded a jam here and there's also a First-Look Video, which helpfully provides a pronunciation key for, "Toraiz."
