Beat-Machine from Primitive Digital Software for free today

A simple but quite powerful MPC-like groovebox with both Ableton Link and Midi Master/Slave (i.e. send/receive) clock sync. Can load samples from AudioShare and AudioCopy and has a step sequencer with velocity control. Great for using with external MIDI gear too.

  • Not pretty but has skills, much like self etc.

  • Also has a great sample set and maybe my favorite bit reducer. Can get that early sampler crunch out of this app with easy. Also, the groove and swing stuff is great.

    Yes, it ain’t pretty but it’s a great drum app. Looks like the FX IAPs were rolled into the base app at some point so if you like drum machines I can’t think of a reason not to grab this while free. Or while it’s paid, if you’re reading this after the sale.

    Simple & easy. No fuzz. You don’t need a PhD to use it.

  • i think this app just replaced my volca sample D=

  • Thanks for the ad placement! It's going to be free for a while; maybe forever. It's been out for 5 years and I think it's run its course. I'll still fix bugs of course, so you can report them if you find them. Someone left a review mentioning it disconnects from bluetooth - don't know if they mean MIDI or what but I'll get it fixed when I find it.

    I just finished my B.S. in comp sci so I've got more time to put into the next one... school was a big time sink near the end.

    This is a great app. I bought it a while ago. Great for sequencing samples of all kinds. Anyone contemplating this “just do it”!
