As electronic musicians ourselves, we, at Fingerlab, have developed DM1 with the intention of delivering the perfect mix between fun playability and powerful sonic capacities. We always keep in mind the importance of a beautiful design with the right balance of powerful abilities while avoiding clumsy, overbusy interfaces.

Check our 24 electronic drum kits. 12 classic vintage drum kits plus 12 in-house produced electronic kits, edited and mastered at Fingerlab professional studio.

DM1 offers 5 main sections:
1 – THE STEP SEQUENCER frees your imagination with a smart use of the multi-touch screen. Just turn on and off steps in your sequence with the tip of your fingers to create cool beats, or unexpected rhythms!
2 – THE DRUM PADS simply lets you play and record the beat that tickles your fingers. No need to be a first-class drummer, automatic quantize does the work for you.
3 – THE MIXER for quick and subtle sound mixing of your drum kits. Featuring settings for volume, pitch, sample length, custom drum kit element for each channel, mute and solo mode.
4 – THE FX TRACKPADS a creative duo of FX trackpads to distort, modulate and transform your beats. The effects include: Phaser, Overdrive, Delay, Texturizer* and Robotizer* (* for iPad 2 only).
