The FM3 Buddha Machine is a palm-sized plastic box that plays ambient music loops composed by Beijing-based duo FM3.

This iPhone/iPod application is a "virtual Buddha Machine" which replicates the no-nonsense simplicity of the original with improved sound quality.

Since its introduction in 2005, the Buddha Machine has won global praise for its novel approach to music enjoyment and has been used in hundreds of recording and performance projects from a wide range of artists.

Featuring hypnotic, ethereal music designed to create a calming presence in today's fast paced world, the machine’s colorful charm provides an experience that is hard to define.

Essentially, It's a box with a life; a tool for living, and to many, a friend.

Founded in 1999 by Christiaan Virant and Zhang Jian, FM3 are considered pioneers of electronic music in China. Virant teamed up with Jason Forrest and Agile Partners for development of the iPhone/iPod Buddha Machine application.


Buddha Machine Features:
- All 18 Buddha Machine 1.0 and Buddha 2.0 loops in High-quality Audio
- All 12 original colors
- Touch Sensitive (give it a shake!)
- Simple interface. Beautiful Sounds. No added Sugar!


Please note: Since the implementation of multi-tasking in iOS4, apps no longer "quit" when you press the home button. They simply go into the background. To stop audio playback from the Buddha Machine app, you must press the home button twice. Then find and hold down the app in the list of background apps. touch the small "-" which appears above the app to shut it down. Dont worry! this will not delete the app from your device. it simply stops the audio."
