NodeBeat is an experimental node-based audio sequencer and generative music application. By combining music and playful exploration, NodeBeat allows anyone to create an exciting variety of rhythmic sequences and ambient melodies in a fun and intuitive fashion. Enjoy easy navigation, including drag-and-drop to add or remove nodes, double-tap to start or stop octave generators, and a quick shake to clear the screen.

Generators and Notes make up the two types of nodes. Generators pulse and play Notes within proximity. A Note is played in sequence, based on the distance it is from its connected Generator. Pause nodes to create your own beats or let them roam free to have them generate their own.
