Beatmaker... Is it worth the price??

For the past few weeks I have been looking at this app beatmaker... Problem is it's about 24.00 aus. Anybody have any clue if it's worth it

I bought BeatMaker when it first was released. If you're into beat making, it is the best thing since sliced bread. The developers even see fit to update every few months. Which is nice. It's a very capable piece of kit. You can make your own beat pads with free downloadable software, even. It's a great, great app.

At first, you might be a little put off by the seemingly complicated mess of it all, but give it some time and you'll really come to appreciate it. BUY!

Be patient with it and have fun.

Also, watch a few youtube videos.

Yep, definitely worth the 20 dollars. I got it back in December and have made a ton of great beats. And this is compng from someone who had no prior experience with making beats

Beatmaker is not a game, but it's worth the money.

Beatmaker is brilliant! I use it in conjunction with Noise.io to sequence full synth tracks on the go. Best two music apps I ever bought (excluding ocarina).

I'd say for $20, this app is already on sale. It blows my mind I have software like this running on my phone. You don't even have to know how to play music to be able to bust out a sick beat. Get It!
