Beatsurfing – impressive MIDI interface for iPad

This iPad application lets you design MIDI instruments from the ground up and then play them in a unique way: by sliding (‘surfing’) your finger across the screen. This very special approach to beat making and production allows for more creative expression and brings back a human touch and feel to your MIDI habits.

– Create swarms of MIDI objects that fit your most delirious setup dreams. Just drag&mod.
– Overlap objects on layers, create new organic systems that bring back a human feel to your performances.
– Each object can interact with your DAW and/or alter any other object’s behaviour, creating an infinity of combinations.
– In-app editing: switch between edit and play modes in a split second.

Build an instrument and play it, like a partition, in a 1000 different ways.
This video features 4 “operators”: the Line, the Circle, the Polygon and the Fader. Each of these operators allows you to build your own MIDI instruments from the ground up as if you were drawing them on the screen. The distribution of the objects and the trajectory of your fingers then help to reintroduce variety and a human feeling to your performance.
