The screen of your iDevice displays a grid. When you choose a beat, it will run through the grid in regular intervals, showing up as a colorful luminous line. To set accents, you tap on individual boxes of the grid. Since all tones are coordinated, your accents will automatically adjust and complement each other. When a continuous beat runs across the grid and hits one of the selected boxes it creates a light effect. Ten instruments are included in the app, more than 200 additional ones may be purchased via in-app. Before the song is completely finished, you may jazz it up with one of twelve sound effects, including Tremolo or Echo. Your work of art can be stored in the app, send out quickly in a number of different ways, or be installed on your iPhone as a ringtone.

Conclusion:
The app, which works intuitively, not only makes it easy to compose songs. Because of the colorful grid, and the continuous beats and melodies, something really cool looking is being created. The effects let musical layman understand in a playful way how melodies develop and how you can complete them.
