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 has been kind enough to provide me with 5 copies of the app to give away to readers at the Music App Blog so, if you are tempted by the app but still haven’t taken the plunge, now might be your chance to win a copy.
As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out.
You can enter the draw in one of two ways.
- First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Friday 27th March, 2015. Make sure to enter ‘BeatHawk’ in the message subject line.
- Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future promo code giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered if every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ’25 iOS music apps to get you started’ guide.
As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the necessary promo code. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to use the code ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.
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 but if you want to be in with a chance of winning a free copy, get in touch or join the email list before the deadline.
Good luck :-)
