    Unique concept
    Intuitive use
    Up to 3 layers
    Organic evolution of music
  • Cons
    Sounds aren't modern



Create layers of harmonies and set them free to evolve on their own

What if music mutated akin to bacteria? Hear me out - music and math have a great deal of overlap, so why not subject notes to the same evolutionary parameters as genes? That's just what you'll play with in Team Popo's BeatEvolve.

Add as many notes as you like to the grid; the app will automatically play them in waves as the line passes over their location. Place as many notes as you like in up to three layers that will play over each other; adjust the speed and the voice of the tones as you like. Then, when you're ready to set your creation free, select a method of evolution, and listen to how the notes organically change form.

There aren't any ads, but you'll have to upgrade to Pro to be able to save and share your creations.

The idea of organically evolving music is really intriguing, and I found it fun enough to play around with for quite a while, just to see what the notes would do differently with each pass. However, I've got to make mention of the sounds themselves - yes, there are several voices, but they sound like they're straight out of a MIDI keyboard from the 1980s. I wonder if there wouldn't be a way to make these sounds more modern, because the tool itself is really neat.

Team Popo's BeatEvolve is a groovy audio tool for music nerds and dabblers alike.
