Clavia says that the new Nord Beat 2 for iPad has been updated to support 6-tracks to accommodate their new 6-channel Nord Drum 2 Modeling Percussion Synthesizer.

Other new features include MIDI Clock Sync in/out -  for synchronizing other MIDI gear (or iPad apps) to the Nord Beat 2 sequencer. This also lets you slave and control the Nord Beat 2 tempo from external gear such as a DAW, hardware sequencer or another iPad app.


Nord Beat 2 also supports Virtual MIDI and Networked MIDI and can be used to sequence other iPad apps by routing the MIDI output to the desired app. 

Another addition is the new Step Modifiers that can add FLAM, 32th or 32th triplets to any step in the sequencer.
