Bebot is a musical instrument that anyone can play. Instead of a keyboard, it has an easy-to-use touch control system. And it's all built into a friendly animated robot, who performs your music while you play. Although it looks simple on the outside, inside is a powerful synth engine which lets you create and edit your own sounds and apply effects. The controls are easy to use, making it fun to tinker and experiment with sound. If you just want to get playing, there's also a wide selection of preset sounds. The touch control system lets you lock in a scale so that you'll never play a wrong note, which makes it easy to play, even on your iPhone. It's polyphonic, which means you can use multiple fingers at once to play chords and harmonies. Plus, you can perform sweeping slides and expressive gestures that would be practically impossible on a regular keyboard. While it's designed to be simple and fun, that doesn't mean it's only for beginners. Bebot has been used both on stage and in the studio by accomplished musicians and performers including Dream Theater, How To Destroy Angels and The Flaming Lips. To see and hear Bebot in action, check out the demo videos at, including a walkthrough demo by keyboard wizard Jordan Rudess. Now with Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, you can connect Bebot to other apps such as GarageBand to record, multitrack and add effects, making Bebot more versatile and useful than ever.

  • Why complaining?

    By crazyivanov
    It’s just an app for passing the time. My 7yo daughter and I enjoy it immensely. We don’t play anything as one would play a piano. It’s for having a good time. For just making nonsense yet at the same time it’s very soothing. Sometimes, when I’m just by myself I might pull it out and play with it. I guess the app has been around since 2010, maybe ‘11. I’m glad it still is. It deserves its own place as something unique and not cheesy. I hope it never goes out of date. Best regards to the dev and for the Reston the people, download it.

    This little guy is a straight up savage and believes in no-one. He will deceive you and make you doubt him.. He will sing his soul...Ever-Lasting fountain. Effects,Strumming and tweaking synths! It's doing music with a twisted twist.

    Even if nothing changes in this app but compatibility patches, this will always be a must have for iOS. Always and forever.

    I can’t believe this quirky little synth still runs great on my latest phone. Warms my heart. Still sounds great, and it just a blast to play with.
  • So cute hours of enjoyment

    By dookiechowder
    I love bebot. He is like family. Cool addition in the future would be a sequencer (id even pay if it was an in-app purchase)! iPhone needs more pick up and play synths like this!!!
  • One of my favorites

    Every year or so I fire this little guy up and end up giggling like a child. It's so much fun to play with!

    By Moof Masterson
    I find this app so fun to play with but my 3 month old son also loves it.
  • If I never touch this app again...

    The 30 minutes of pure joy was well worth the 2 bux. I can't wait to use it on my iPhone at work!
  • Bebot=BB-8

    By Obnad
    Okay, first let me just say that I love this app...easy to use, makes interesting sounds...for a musician/experimenter like myself it's what I look for in sound apps. I try to stay on top of new music apps, I like to try them all...and Bebot has always been in my arsenal. Now flash forward to The Force Awakens...BB-8 "the scene stealer" I had read that when they were making BB-8's "dialogue" that J.J. Abrams used an iphone app....well, THIS is the app you are looking for....straight Bebot sound right out of the box(in the film it is obviously processed more but this app is the main component and is certainly the one that was referred to.). Kinda surprised the developers haven't touted this fact yet. You will have a lot of fun making BB-8 phrases.
