I posted a full review of UVI’s BeatHawk iOS music app here on the blog a just after it was released. I was hugely impressed with BeatHawk. There are drum/groove box apps that perhaps pack in more features than BeatHawk does but I actually think UVI have struck a brilliant balanced between functionality and ease-of-use with the approach they have adopted in the initial release.
Anyway, UVI seem keen to keep things going forwards with BeatHawk and a number of updates for the app have appeared on the App Store. These have included a few few minor fixes listed, changes to the audio and MIDI preferences, a significant memory optimisation for improved performance and the addition of IAA instrument support to go with the IAA audio support.
Laure Ledien from UVI was been kind enough to provide me with 5 copies of the app to give away to readers at the Music App Blog. Entries closed yesterday and the winning names were drawn at random out of the hat this morning. Again, many thanks also to everyone who entered. The winners should have now received an email with details of how to get hold of their free copy but, for information, the readers names drawn out the hat were:-
Incidentally, if you do appear as a winner in one of these giveaways and you don’t seem to have seen an email from me with the promo code details, then do make sure you check in your junk, trash or spam folders just in case your email system has ‘filed’ the message there :-)
BeatHawk is gradually becoming my ‘go to’ pad-based beat/groove construction app simply because it is – once you have spent just a short time with it – so intuitive and streamlined to use. Anyway, check out the full review here and, if you didn’t win this time around, then click on the link below to purchase and download the app from iTunes… Oh, and if you want to be in with a chance of winning in any of the giveaways that I run here on the blog, then just join the email list; all members of the list are automatically entered.
Here’s hoping the winners enjoy using the app….
