NodeBeat is in my 24 Apps of 2012 as it’s one of the few that has gone very cross platform and made a real success of it. I think NodeBeat’s success is in part due to how versatile it is. If you’re not a musician and just want it to play some music for you it’s excellent. If you’re using virtual MIDI and want to connect it up it’s good too. But it operates at both ends of the musical expertise spectrum without dumbing down for any user or making itself overly complex. That’s a nice piece of design.
So I look forward to more functionality in NodeBeat in 2013 and also something new I hope from AffinityBlue, and, if their prototypes are anything to go by, it’ll be fun.
