FunkBox giveaway – five copies of virtual drum machine app from Synthetic Bits to give away

Download from iTunes App StoreFunkbox logoOne of my favourite virtual drum box apps – FunkBox – got its first significant update in quite a while earlier this week. FunkBox was always a very cool, fun, and easy-to-use virtual drum machine. It has a very useable collection of classic drum machine kits and good pattern editing and performance features (the ‘roll’ button, for example).

With this update, Synthetic Bits have bought FunkBox right up-to-date in terms of iOS music production technology by adding support for both IAA and Audiobus 2, with the latter including State Saving support. In addition to its previous merits, it is now an app that is very easy to integrate into a wider music production/recording workflow.

If you don’t yet own a copy of this app, thanks to the generosity of Art Kerns at developer Synthetic Bits, I now have five copies of the app to give away to readers of the blog. 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 Monday, April 14th, 2014. Make sure to enter ‘FunkBox’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future app 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 in 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. And if you are already signed up for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)
Funkbox now supports IAA - note the IAA transport panel located top-left and Audiobus 2 State Saving.

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 details required to download your free copy. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to download ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

You can read a full review of FunkBox here and about the recent update here. If you can’t wait for the draw to give it a try, then click on the link below to purchase and download the app from iTunes 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 :-)

    1. This is a good one, bought it back when it was released in 1876. Love the old skool interface/graphics. Lots of nice drummachines included. I believe the Audiobus State Save for this one can also include the samples from any custom drum kit (which could be useful when sharing etc).
