Beatsurfing copes perfectly with Djs, music producers and passionate music folks that want that want to provide something original when it comes to music.
For $11.99 from App Store, you get to connect and control any MIDI enabled audio or video software through a MIDI interface or through Wi-Fi. So the easiest way for playing with Beatsurfing and conneting the controller to a computer is through Wi-Fi. You also get to control Hardware and also other iPad apps.
The app was designed for live performances and studio productions and the user gets the possibility of drawing their own controller, having 4 objects available: the Line, the Polygon, the Fader and the Circle. Beatsurfing is not like any regular app, meaning that you don’t get to hit objects on the screen for performing music, you only have to slide over with fingers along routes, colliding with objects, triggering samples or effects. Dare to play a piece of music that you like and afterwards reinterpret it in many ways.

The service, part of iCloud, was officially released last November but spread slowly because of some inconsistency problems. It has been refined and it appears now, glorious and available to a big list of new countries from Latin America and Europe, totaling 37 countries that can access iTunes Match.
Didn’t find out about iTunes Match by now? Well, I guess this image covers all your curiosities about the service:
It works pretty simple: once purchased, the service scans your iTunes collection of songs and tries to match them with the ones already existing in the iCloud. Your songs are uploaded only if not found and the nice thing is that you can listen them at any time, on any device played back from iCloud at 256-Kbps AAC DRM-free quality — even if your copy was of lower quality. You can also import and store songs from CD’s.
We are waiting to access it also from Romania
