DM2 Update Adds Drone Machine
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

DM2 is a synthesis-based drum machine with a dedicated graphic editor, for the creation and manipulation of sound. DM2 is fully MIDI-mappable with more than 130 assignable parameters that can be controlled by an external MIDI controller.

What’s New in Version 1.6
Introducing the “DRONE MACHINE”. With the brand new “Drone Machine” mode DM2 turns into an instant Ambient machine. All 9 tracks play continuously regardless of what the sequencer plays. Switch it on and drive a powerful Dream Machine at the tips of your fingers. Extremely versatile when used with a MIDI controller and MIDI Learn mode. Dark Ambient admirers, Space Rock lovers, Dream Music adorers, Minimal fetishist are welcome.

** AMENDED**
+ AUDIO ENGINE : Improved CPU management when idle in the background
+ Faster loading time

A BIG, BIG STEP SEQUENCER. 16 or 32 step patterns. Or why not 7 or 25 steps? Or even polymetric tracks (poly what? no worries, just a fancy word for complex rhythms, yet super easy to make). And while we are at it, steps can also be singles, duplets, triplets or quadruplets for even sophisticated rhythms. Again it is all about drawing funny objects to make funky beats.

THE DRUMS PAGE. Where the sonic magic happens. Six touchable graphs to create sounds. Oscillators, LFOs, filters, noise generators, all the usual suspects in a drawable interface. This may look a tiny bit daunting at first, but the beauty is that whatever you touch, you’re not going to break anything. So give everything a whirl, and get experimental. And if you need some inspiration, DM2 contains plenty of ready-made sounds too.

THE PADS PAGE. Maybe you prefer finger-drumming? Sure, go ahead. Press REC and record your rhythms. Of course, there is an automatic quantize function, so that you’ll never miss a beat again.

THE MIXER PAGE. Big and beautiful, it will transform your iPad into a professional mixing desk for the price of a magazine.

THE FX SECTION. A powerful Effect processor. Just switch everything on and see where it takes you.

THE SONG PAGE. Last but not least, put all your hard work in the previous pages together in a shiny song.
