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


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.
