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.

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.

Alex, the developer, is quite active on Twitter. While he's been waiting for Apple to approve this 1.04 update, he's already been baking 1.05. Originally he intended on adding MIDI next, for his own live performances, but one day on his lunch break he started programming in effects! Soon, in addition to glitches, you'll have more traditional effects to play with.

Here is a recent Glitchy Break by Alex "Distraub" Matheu, using Alchemy and Meteor along with his creation.
