  1. talk about a long wait time for the update
    it was announce quite a while back
    be neat to try out the new items

  2. BeatHawk was already great. The newest version is jawdroppingly amazing. An absolute must and a steal cost-of-entry wise.

    1. Totally agree, This version puts everything else in this league to shame.
      AU is just the icing on the cake.
      Love it 🙂

  3. Another app for making unimaginative “music” with gimmicky sounds and beats. Bland bland bland. This generation of kids think it’s music. It’s not. The demo was awful. Sorry but far better music was made with a Fairlight back in the 80’s.

    1. I just bought it on a whim for 7$, sampled some random vocal into it and made a little song linked with ableton that sounded quite “Farlight-y” by sampling with the iPhone mic so there’s that 😉 No need to use the built in presets…
