About this app

Find your creative flow.
Roland Zenbeats is a music creation app that keeps you in an effortless artistic flow. Get started on any mobile device or computer platform and make music anywhere, anytime. With its collection of both modern and legendary sounds, Zenbeats brings Roland’s history of innovation into a new, mobile-friendly format.

The app is your instrument.
Whether you’re an emerging musician or an established producer, Zenbeats makes music creation easy. Build beats, compose full multitrack songs, or sample the world around you. Wherever you are, no matter what platform or device you use, capture your creative spark with Zenbeats.

A universe of sound.
Whatever style you’re working in, you’ll find the perfect sounds for your tracks in Zenbeats. From vintage Roland JUNO and JUPITER tones to diverse and progressive instruments for any genre, the 14,000-plus presets will keep your compositions fresh and exciting.

ZR1. The future of beatmaking.
Our ZR1 Drum Sampler is a new kind of beat machine. Fast track your percussive prowess with seminal Roland drum tones from the TR-808, TR-909, and more.

Sample your world.
Sample and import directly into ZR1’s drum pads with the touch of a finger.

Edit. Refine. Repeat.
Tweak your sounds with advanced editing functionality. Manipulate and chop your one-shot samples with the slice editor and quickly crop and fade as needed.

ZC1. Roland’s most advanced synth engine.
ZC1 is a versatile synthesizer based on our powerful ZEN-Core Synthesis System. The free version features signature Roland synth sounds and 60 presets, driven by a sleek touch-based interface with an X/Y pad for easy sound manipulation. When you unlock the full version of ZC1, you get over 900 additional presets and 90 MFX that are all fully compatible with ZENOLOGY and supported ZEN-Core hardware.

Deep MIDI and audio power at your fingertips.
The Zenbeats ecosystem offers tons of time-saving tools to document, edit, and refine your ideas. Quickly capture and play sounds with LoopBuilder, or use a traditional approach with the Timeline view for more sophisticated arrangements and automation options.

Fresh sounds. Fresh ideas.
The Zenbeats Store is loaded with sounds, loops, and creative tools to expand your musical palette. Whatever sound or genre you’re chasing, the Zenbeats Store has you covered. All sounds are royalty-free and new tones are added weekly.

Mix and match.
With the full-screen mixer view, it’s simple to control volume, filter, panning, and more. Browse through 17 native FX, EQ tracks to your liking, and balance all your audio, instrument, and drum tracks from one streamlined location.

Easy Sharing.
Effortless transfers between phone, tablet, and desktop make the distance between you and your finished product even shorter. Use Google Drive™ or OneDrive to share Zenbeats projects and export stems and loops for use in other DAWs.

Free, unlock, or membership. The choice is yours.
With the free version of Zenbeats, you get music production essentials plus the ability to purchase additional loops and presets in the Zenbeats Store. When you’re ready to expand, there are three ways to unlock the full Zenbeats experience:

Zenbeats is a mobile daw with great sounding virtual instruments ready to go. The app responds well to midi devices, and you can map a controller quickly. Without a controller zenbeats does the best it can. The synthesizer is great and is my favorite feature. Roland's mobile virtual instruments sound pretty impressive. The many plug-ins sound great. Zenbeat's youtube channel is packed with info and answers. I would love to see sequence synthesizer presents added soon. I'm so happy with this app.

It's a great DAW for mobile but the UI/UX could use some better functionality and is not always friendly with smaller screens, even if you have a decent-sized phone. The note editor is especially tough. For example, you have to tap and hold a note to move it, but that also brings up a menu that gets in the way. Otherwise, great app! Edit: Realized there was already a pinch and zoom for making editing easier. Not sure if this was added recently or not.

Thanks for your feedback! Have you gone into settings and tried sliding up the windows scale factor? Try this and see if that helps. We do want to improve UI, so we will consider your notes back. Thank you for taking the time and we hope you keep making music with Zenbeats!

Updated post as of 3/3/2020 - Issue --> I don't know what happened to my review, I enjoyed using Stagelight, and the transfer over to Zenbeats was pretty seamless, do not know what happened on the last update, but this app now looks like it should be on a computer, as opposed to a smartphone. The DPI, is rendering for a computer, and not a smartphone.-------- Resolved----------> Thank you Zenbeats, for the quick response, the issue is now resolved. Problem solved.

Hi Jimmy, try adjusting the settings in the main menu. Click settings and adjust the interface options like windows scale factor. Let us know if that works! Feel free to open a support ticket at: https://www.roland.com/backstage/#/zenbeats-support or email us at: zenbeats.social@roland.com
