Incredibly easy to use beatbox for a buck is the Figure for iPhone concept. Propellorhead Software wraps drum machine and synthesizer into one app, designed from scratch for mobile, powered by their top of the line Reason virtual recording studio. Figure transforms your tiny touchscreen into a super-touch-aware performance box where you can build tracks by tap or slide, and experiment with changes in horizontal and vertical movement around the screen. There are also prepackaged patterns and rhythms, and ample controls for tweaking track construction, sounds and mix. The product video effectively demonstrates how simple it is to program a dancefloor in your head on the commute to work, while the guy right across from you is obliviously lost in his tablet—sign o’ the times!
