The Beatmaker revolution

It's not free but very cheap (approx USD 20) for having an equivalent of Akai MPC2000 within your iphone and/or your ipodtouch! I tried it during my last trip in Ibiza (especially waiting for my flight in the airport) and it was not only entertainement but indeed you can consider make a real track with it. The only negative aspect is that the general volume button is not implemented yet which is really annoying so plug headphones for a better experience!
