SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 28, 2014) - Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced the release of expanded interactive music content enabled by MIDI technology enhancements in the latest version of the Beamz music entertainment app. This is a revolutionary way for music enthusiasts, musicians and non-musicians to play, create and share music using their iPhone or iPad. The Beamz App is available today, free of charge, in the Apple App Store.
The Beamz App allows users to control the destiny of interactive songs by playing any combination of the 12 featured instruments and sound effects selected for each song title. Every Beamz song is technically developed so any sound or instrument selected will work together in time and on key. With the new MIDI technology updates in the Beamz App the company may rapidly expand its interactive music library for iOS devices and publish more complex and dynamic music.
"We are pleased to release our new and improved Beamz App through the Apple App Store," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "The Beamz App is a great compliment to our Beamz laser controller hardware, and has the potential to provide another substantial revenue generation channel for our company through additional content."
The free Beamz App includes nine interactive songs; in a few days a content update will add six more songs to increase the total to 15 interactive songs. These 15 interactive songs were selected to showcase the depth of the music experiences users may enjoy with the application with a broad spectrum of instruments from a range of different music genres. The company intends to encourage the download of the free application to introduce consumers and prospective business partners to the innovation of its interactive music library.
"Our upgraded Beamz App offers a simple and engaging way to make music," said Al Ingallinera, Vice President of Product Management for Beamz Interactive. "Belting out our favorite songs while listening to the car radio with our friends was once the extent of interactive music. Today with Beamz, anyone, regardless of age or music skill, can begin creating new versions of songs by simply tapping on the screen of their iPhone or iPad. Hit another button and you can record and share. For the ultimate experience, customers have the option to pair this app with our Beamz by Flo laser controller hardware -- taking the experience of creating interactive music to a whole new level."
Utilizing Beamz Interactive's proprietary software, users will now be able to enjoy the Beamz interactive music experience on an iPhone and iPad touch screen without connecting to any hardware. The Beamz App has built-in functionality for users to purchase additional songs of their favorite artists, either individually or in bundles. Users may create their own custom version of some of today's most popular songs, then instantly record and share their songs with friends.
The Beamz App can be downloaded for free directly from the Apple App Store at www.thebeamz.com/iOS-app.
