NodeBeat by AffinityBlue, is another music app that is synthesizer based and works as though created by the Greek Muse, Euterpe herself. It’s fun, creative, colorful and is very easy to use for all ages. For the price associated with the app, I know you’ll find it a steal.
First off, I need to be honest, I never heard of NodeBeat until they announced it for the BlackBerry PlayBook. It’s a very neat app no matter your age or musical talent. Show this one to your children and you may never see your BlackBerry PlayBook again, or at least until it needs to be charged again.
Here’s the video of NodeBeat playing on the BlackBerry PlayBook:
Here’s the description from BlackBerry App World:

(From the NodeBeat website) How does it work?
Generators and Notes make up the two types of nodes. Generators pulse and play Notes within proximity. A Note is played in sequence, based on the distance it is from its connected Generator. Pause nodes to create your own beats or let them roam free to have them generate their own.NodeBeat is Created by Seth Sandler, Justin Windle, and Laurence Muller.
