I spent some time with the latest version of ZoozBeat last night just to see what it was like compared to the previous versions. ZoozBeat has given itself the subtitle of “Music reCreation Studio“, which is an interesting idea.

The interface and general design of the app is much nicer than previous iterations, and the actual music (re)creation interface is much better and easier to use whilst the underlying concept behind Zoozbeat remains intact.

Although the interface changes are subtle I did find it easier to use and to start making some music with it. The latest version has an in app store inside it. I only gave this a very quick look, but it seems to have a lot of stuff in it.

One thing I wasn’t sure about was that when you save you have to have a ZoozBeat account. You can save your work as private or public, but if you don’t have an account you can’t save, or if you can I couldn’t work out how.

Given a quick try out I think I will give it some more time and see if I can make something of use with this app.

  1. Hi Palm Sounds,

    Thank you for reviewing the new ZOOZbeat.

    Yes! ZOOZbeat Musicians can save their songs without a free ZOOZbeat.com Musician account. In the next update — by December 25th — we'll make this intuitive. At the moment, yes, it is a challenge to find and use this feature.

    Until we make this intuitive, your songs can always be saved on your iPhone (or iPod Touch), even if you don't have a a free ZOOZbeat account. To access your saved songs on your iPhone, just chose the beat and you will see a list of all your saved songs using this beat.

    If you set up a free account at ZOOZbeat.com, you can save your songs and either:

    — share them with the world (select: public)
    — keep your songs private (select: private)

    Regarding the new in-App ZOOZbeat Store, by November 30, 2009, the new ZOOZbeat will have at least 33 songs or collections of songs from 15 Artists that you can either buy or redeem promo codes; plus, we're in discussions with many indie and major labels to add additional Artists.

    Thank you again for reviewing the new ZOOZbeat.

    On behalf of the ZOOZbeat Team,

    Dan
