    Glad some Android developers are bringing some cool apps to the Playbook platform. Nodebeat is one such app and is a native port and don't mistake it to Android Runtime(JVM) port. Here is some cool work done by the developer and he deserves a lot of appreciation from Blackberry community. I hope people buy such apps and encourage developers to bring wonderful things to the Blackberry platform.

    WOW! incredible app. To tell you the truth im a hardcore MorphWiz fan so im kind of skeptic on other apps but yours is SO AMAZING. A good combo for my music projects! hope it keeps improving, very clean UI and very good performance! 5/5 Stars for sure.

    Thanks manytone! We find people enjoy it more over time too since they learn more about the possibilities.

    iSin, we love Morphwiz too and appreciate the kind words! You can even have both running at the same time - for example, have NodeBeat play some generated stuff in the background while playing Morphwiz over it!

    This app is very well done and a lot of fun; so many options to explore!

    I did notice that a swipe from the top bezel did not bring up the menu, but brought up the keyboard.

    Also, is there a way to snap the pitches to the vertical grid? I changed the scale to a straight major scale and the grid was not always consistent; some of the pitches were in-between the grid.

    This app is amazing though; very unique and very responsive.
    You might want to consider adding some screen shots in App World so that NodeBeat can get featured.
    Thanks so much for bringing it to the PB.

    Thanks for the comments Dr.Deebs and robtanz!

    We actually have screenshots, but they're pending approval. For some reason our previous ones were removed before release and the new ones haven't been approved yet.

    Can you explain more about what you mean by vertical grid? The pitch itself is determined by the note selected and not by position on screen. The distance a note is from a generator determines the time in which it'll play. So, the background keyboard is actually independent of the notes in terms of what pitch will play.

    Thanks Seth, I think I figured it out. I was playing on the lines of the background piano (brainwashed by too much MorphWiz) instead of the middle of the piano keys

    The more I use it the more I am loving it!

    Is there a way to set up the nodes to use one waveform (sine), and then solo over it on the background piano with a different waveform (sawtooth)?

    Thanks again.

    Ah right, Dr.Deebs. I get the same confusion when I play Morphwiz. I keep forgetting that the note is where the line is. Yeah, for NodeBeat it's more like a piano. So the middle (between the lines) is the 'key' (note). I'm glad you figured it out though.

    Currently you can't change the keyboard and notes waveform independently, but that's something we're considering for the future.

    NodeBeat works well with bridge remote too. I hooked the PB to the TV, sat on the couch, and set up all my sounds using a 9900. It worked great. You can even play the background piano (single notes or sweeps) using a touchscreen BB.
    No sound through the HDMI port though which is too bad.

    It's not impossible, it's just not the default behavior or present in any sample code. I just got HDMI audio output working in Caustic so I'll push that out soon on my end. I'm willing to share my source with any audio app dev working with the native SDK if it can save them a few hours and get more apps supporting HDMI out.

    CausticRej, we use the Native SDK and would love to get help with integrating audio over HDMI out.
