Ninebuzz, developers of some fine guitar apps for the iPhone (i.e Guitar Jam Tracks – Scale Trainer) has just released Beats+, a multi-genre drum loops app for all (aspiring) musicians.
BEATS+ is a simple and fun collection of drum loops for stress-free jamming and songwriting accompaniment. No assembly required! Ranging from 1 to 4 bars in length, these loops are great for casual practice or exploring song ideas. Plug into Hi-Fi speakers for the best sound (or just play right from your iPhone!).
The app comes with over 50 drum beats created by a professional drummer, including loops in the Pop-rock, blues, jazz, and R&B categories. A one-touch tempo control also lets you easily adjust the tempo from 60 – 190 BPM. A simple enough app for sure, but having these beats accompany your jam session is pretty awesome – especially for only a buck. If only apps like this existed a few years back, I may have saved myself $200 with the M-Audio Blackbox. Take a look at the cool demo video of Beats+ after the break.
