BeatPad 3.3 for iPad
Here’s a snippet of a cool beat made using BeatPad 3.3
BeatPad 3.3 ($6.99) is a drum machine with a built-in 4 track audio recorder for you iPad. The newest version comes with more sounds than its predecessor and even boasts a slightly cheaper price tag (supposedly).
It’s cool that you can type up and save lyrics to a particular beat right within the program. This is great when you get some quality lyric ideas while you’re working on your production, which often does happen.
You also have some great exporting and sharing options in being able to upload your work directly to Youtube and Facebook. BeatPad comes with quantize capabilities and a built-in sound library to get you up and going. The stock sounds are decent and it seems that XME will continue to expand this library. This is promising because it’s the one thing I think BeatPad needs most – a bigger and better sound library.
It’s worth mentioning that customer service is pretty good too.
BeatPad 3.3 is a quality music production app for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. I would recommend it to anyone looking to make music on one of these platforms.
