BeatStudio v1.1 – Fast and Easy Groove Creation with over 50 new sounds

Lebanon, New Hampshire – Frontier Design Group, creator of popular music apps GuitarStudio and iShred, today is pleased to announce the immediate release of BeatStudio v1.1 featuring two new Free Sample Packs of sounds designed to create drum and percussion tracks on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch the fast, easy, and fun way.

The new FREE Sample Packs include:
* Vintage Analog Drum Machine: Go back in time to a day before digital with these (25 ) bleeps, bloops, and bops.
* Vintage Digital Drum Machine: 30 great sampled drum sounds from classic early digital drum machines.

Believing that you can’t have too many sounds in your arsenal, the new Sample Packs go a long way in creating just the right sound for your preferred percussion style. Latin, Salsa, Afrobeat, Trance, Rap, Reggae, and Rock – all come alive with the new sounds of BeatStudio v1.1. Try any of the 4 different hi-hats to get that clean delivery and rock sound of the 70’s. If you’re looking for the exuberant style and raw polyrhythms of Afro beat, try claves with the different congas.

In addition to the Free Sample Packs of sounds, we’ve updated the original sound set with two NEW built-in snare sounds to bring improved tonal qualities to your tracks.

A unique feature with this release is Stomp! With Stomp, you can use the iPad’s and iPhone’s accelerometer to trigger sounds by shaking the device or by stomping rhythmically with it on your knee. For example, mapping a Kick to the Stomp feature can give you a more natural drumming experience of using both your legs and hands.

Keeping time was never so easy!
