Backbeater iPhone App At 2011 PASIC


This is the best part of going to drum shows: That moment when you run into a hopeful little startup company that just put the fruit of their ingenuity onto the market. Such was the case when we ran across Backbeater, an iPhone app that the company describes as a “tempo monitoring system.” It’s just the opposite of a metronome, so that instead of keeping a strict tempo to play along with, it analyzes the consistency of each stroke and provides immediate feedback. We’ve seen similar ideas encased in boxes, but not available in iTunes. Pretty cool software.
