Bitboxland [iPhone, Sound]


Created by Francis Lam aka db-db, Bitboxland is a platform and tool for audiovisual creation and performance. Half soundtoy, half game, Bitboxland is a a unique and joyful audiovisual playground. Tap on the objects to make sounds or turn on/off music loops. Drag the train left and right to scratch. You can record up to 10 beat sequences and play back as a loop using the record and play buttons (at bottom right). The number indicates which program you’re recording to. To unlock more objects and beats, hit the clouds. You need to score over 500 to have the whole Bitboxland ready.

Francis was kind enough to share 5 promocodes with us. To win one, leave a comment below and we’ll pick 5 winners by random later today.

    It looks pretty cool. I'd like to try it in a live enviroment (a.k.a. DJ Set)

    I love the integration of gaming elements through music creation. Cloudie marginally caught my attention but I'm very much looking forward to this.

  • pleaseinsertacoin

    I never really got the point of 8-bit music, but this “bitboxing” concept makes sense. (BTW, yet another thing that would be even more amazing on some tablet-type device) Graphic elements look great, recording makes it even sweeter.
