GoBeats Free Drum App For iOS By Positive Grid
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

GoBeats

My quick and dirty demo review of GoBeats by Positive Grid. GoBeats is the world’s first free artificial intelligence drum app for iOS. I put this new app to the test today. GoBeats by Positive grid. Says it’s the world’s first artificial intelligence drum app. What this app does is listens to your playing and then tries to come up with a drum accompaniment. I got several different results from it. I played the same riff several times and most of the time I got decent results. The one in this video was my favorite. There were a couple tries where the groove didn’t have the right about of swing and feel to it and there were a couple tried where the tempo was off. Overall this is a decent drum companion. I like how it plays fills and adds dynamics by switching up to a ride cymbal. Is it really artificial intelligence? Well that might be a stretch. It does listen to the riff and seems to pick up on it pretty quick. Would like different kits to choose from. It doesn’t have a save or freeze option so if you get a groove you like and hit learn by accident that groove will be lost. Would be nice if we could export the groove as a midi. A count off or pre-count would be cool before the groove starts playing.

Bias-FX-Guitar-Effects

BIAS FX turns your iPad into a world-class, guitar amp-and-effects processor. It gives you an endless collection of insanely great-sounding guitar pedalboards, ultra-high definition stereo rack effects, dual amps and dual signal chain. You can share and download users and artists signature guitar pedalboards from the cloud.

All new advanced multi-effects engine
Positive Grid’s approach engineering BIAS FX with a no-compromise mindset, from a detailed touch in distortion emulation to the double precision algorithm in chorus, we strive for the best possible sound quality. A huge collection of newly developed, high-definition pedal and rack effects are included: gate, boosters, overdrive, distortion, fuzz, equalizers, tremolo, phaser, flanger, chorus, octaver, compressors, delays, spring and plate reverbs—everything a guitar player needs for massive tone, with all the flavor of both modern and vintage stomp boxes. Throw all that together – it is pedalboard heaven, but without the hassle of hauling around dozens of stomps in a heavy metal box and fumbling with a snakepit of cables. Show up at the studio or gig, boot up and play!

Insanely powerful, yet easy to use
BIAS FX is the most powerful processor ever designed by Positive Grid, yet its simple drag-and-drop interface makes it extremely easy to use. Dual amps provide the resonance and vibrancy of playing through two real amps set up together in wide stereo. When integrated with BIAS AMP (separate app), you can select a different preamp, power amp, cab, mic and eq for each of the two amps. Patch everything together, including all pedals and rack effects, in any order you wish in dual signal paths running in parallel.

Download pedalboard from the cloud
There are already hundreds of pedalboard configurations available on ToneCloud for you to own, and the banquet keeps getting bigger and bigger: Positive Grid are currently working with professional artists, producers, and engineers from all over the world to create a massive, ever-growing library of extraordinary virtual pedalboards and rigs for BIAS FX. Browsing and downloading from that library is a snap: All the effects and amps in each setup can be seen at a glance, because they’re stored as Pedalboard-like snapshots. Simply scroll through the online images to select the presets of interest, then tap or click to download.

Inter app audio routing engine
BIAS FX integrates a brand new inter-app audio routing engine, you can easily insert any Inter-App-Audio compatible audio apps in BIAS FX’s dual signal paths, just like connecting audio effects app with virtual cables. BIAS FX makes it easy to go nuts with your audio apps.
