AUDIOMODERN, developers of the creative MIDI sequencer Riffer, released Playbeat today! This AUv3 sequencer is generative, creating random beats and patterns for you. It is also available on desktops.

Playbeat App Store Description:

Playbeat is a creative groove randomizer plugin that generates beats and patterns for you.
Unlike an ordinary step sequencer, Playbeat creates patterns using algorithmic and random procedures for generating notes by combining Steps, Pitch and Volume.

Load, or import your own sounds and generate up to four patterns simultaneously to get polyrhythms. You can generate as many patterns as you want and never get the same one twice. That's because there is essentially an infinite number of different possible combinations.

New ways of creating grooves help to break new ground in music and sound design
Quick-fire Unique Rhythm patterns and discover New ways of creating beats on the spot.

Playbeat has been designed to promote music creation both in studio and live performance with a simple and convenient user interface. Endlessly variable and Endlessly interesting.

Playbeat also supports Ableton Link for tight sync between apps on the same network and MIDI Support.

Apps4iDevices posted a Playbeat tutorial, and Meerkat Music used the app on this psychedelic track. Embedded here is the official promo from Audiomodern Ltd.

We must hang out with entirely different types of junkies, because she doesn't look anything like the addicts I've known.

You need your eyes checked. She looks like a hired model and they had someone do her hair and makeup to make it look "galm but streetwise without being too grundgy, sexy with a hint of danger, but loveable and waiflike, independant young woman who is not too scary to men, clouds clearing, film at 11".

There is a free demo version for Mac or Windows on their web site. Worth getting for a play with.

Once you make a loop you can't export it to somewhere else, like AudioShare, but the dev has said on the AB Forum that loop export is next on their list.

The app sounds good, and the interface is a good balance of functionality and clearance.
