Music creation is a field of software that is not particularly well represented on the iPhone - the small screen may be off-putting to some, but it is still possible to create audio masterpieces on your mobile. This is something that Tweakybeat aims to prove.

With something of a retro look, TweakyBeat is a simple drum machine that can be used to create your own drum patterns. Despite the iPhone's relatively small screen, TweakyBeat manages to pack in a large number of options.

With the app installed you have an eight pattern step sequencer at your fingertips complete with tempo, pitch and volume control. Patterns can be easily copied and pasted between blocks ready for editing and manipulating and before you know it you can build up a complex layered sound.

Your creations can be saved in the app ready for playback and there's great fun to be had experimenting with different sounds. Whether you view the program as a serious musical tool or just a bit of fun, impressive musical creations are just a few screen taps away.
 

Verdict

Transform your iPhone into a drum machine with this retro synth tool.
