TableDrum For iPhone

Back in the day I did this with an Alesis D4 except I also used some mics, a towel, and a chair. Now you can do it with your phone!?! What makes this app stand out from the competition is the fact that you can actually assign sounds to objects. If I only had this in High School. Tapping beats out on a desk with a pencil just doesn’t compare.

Ever dreamt of becoming a drummer without having to purchase, carry and assemble a complete drum set? The solution is simple; gear up with some office supplies, a pair of headphones, your favourite Apple iOS device and unleash the power of your pocket-sized drum set.

You can now build your own virtual drum set from practically anything. Music applications where users tap the screen are things of the past. Welcome to the future!

TableDrum is an Augmented Audio application that allows you to sync the sound of any real object and trigger a real time response of high quality drum sounds.

Take it to the streets, show your kitchen table who’s the boss or simply let your stuff feel the rhythm.

With the TableDrum application the world is now your virtual drum set. You can sync the sound of basically any real object to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and link it to high quality drum samples of your choice.

Included in the app is the Classic Rock kit with 8 high quality drum samples. By expanding your sound library with the Ethno & Jazz kit and Electro and Glitch kit you can get access to another 32 high quality sounds to play with.

Some things to get started
Gear up with a couple of pencils and some office supplies, each one with unique acoustic characteristics, to drum on!
Use headphones for best result.

To link a drum to a real physical object
1. Hold down a drum pad until it starts glowing.
2. Release and tap a real physical object several times (4-8) while the light fills the circle.
3. When the linking process is done, the rim of the pad will glow.

The app recognizes sound, so for the app to work at its best, the sounds you link should be different and distinguished. While you are playing, hit the object the same way as when you linked it.

To unlink a drum
1. Hold down the drum pad for one second. The rim stops glowing and is unlinked from the real physical object.

To change a drum sample
1. Press the menu button.
2. Slide through the different sample albums.
3. Click an album and then drag n’ drop the sound icons you want to use onto each drum pad.

Join the beat!

Note:
Devices without a built-in microphone require an external microphone to use the Augmented Audio linking.

I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements.
