Beatsketch

I just wanted to mention that I did this thing called Beatsketch last year. It lets you make music on the web without having to know much about making music.

BeatSketch from Sebastian Zimmer is a collaborative music production tool that Sebastian developed for his Master’s degree in Computer Science. A song consists of multiple tracks, and each track is backed by a grid-based sequencer. Any changes you make are synchronised between connected collaborators immediately. It also supports mixing the final song down to a WAV file for downloading. An impressive set of features and a very useful exploration of possible methods of implementing collaborative working.

Development

Unfortunately, I haven’t found much time lately to work on the app, although there clearly is some work to be done. If you are seriously interested in helping me on this, let me know.
