Elastic Drums Adds Futuristic Synths
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Elastic Drums is a music app showcasing an interactive drum kit, that enables to create a huge range of rhythmic grids, ranging from classical analog drumkits up to experimental soundscapes.
It contains six channels of high quality synthesized drum sounds, a step sequencer and 4 effect channels. All important control parameters are automatable. The result: Elastic drum composition with a unique character!

What’s New in Version 2.1
– 4 new IAP „Futuristic synths“ – that enhance the sonic possibilities
– Simplified Midi assignment
– Possibility to Restore In-App Purchases
– New equalizer in Master Section
– Newest Audiobus SDK
– User-samples get zipped now when sending a user preset via email
– Automation is recordable via Midi CC now (only one CC at a time)
– Midi Send is now also sending triggers of jam page
– New Samples and Presets by Servando
– New Presets by Deadfader

Features:
– 6 synth channels with 13 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone, sampler)
– 12 parameters for each synth engine
– automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
– 4 send effect channels with 2×13 mono effects and 2×11 stereo effects
– automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
– master effects (stutter, delay, compressor …)
– 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it’s own tempo multiplier & length
– record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
– email audio recordings and presets
– Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
– Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power. iPhone 4 and iPad1 are NOT recommended!

Elastic Drums is published by MoMinstruments, the instruments app label of Mouse on Mars and friends.

Servando Barreiro is showcasing how he is using Elastic Drums together with a Korg NanoKontrol 2 Midi Controller. You can do this with the current version of Elastic Drums already, but the upcoming update will improve Midi Learning to do such setups also a lot. In his setup Servando basically connected the midi controller to some instrument parameters and to some master effects of the Jam page.

ED Update 2.1 should be out this week or next week latest.

Really excited to announce some new features for Pattering. The most exciting feature for me is the new Kit Cloud drum kit sharing feature.

Use Patterning’s independent loop settings to explore untapped rhythmic possibilities. Automate parameters to create intricate & complex beats. Arrange patterns on the timeline to construct songs. Use the built-in effects–delay, reverb, distortion, and 3-band EQ–to add atmosphere, shimmer and noise. Connect to other apps with Audiobus, Inter-App Audio, and MIDI. Export your beats to perfect audio loops or directly to an Ableton Live Set.

Patterning comes loaded with classic drum machine samples as well as exclusive drum kits created and curated by contemporary producers and musicians. For the independent producer, it’s easy to create custom kits with your own samples.

Folks know I love Patterning as most people do. It’s such a wicked drum sequencing app. I’m currently beta testing a new feature that allows users to share their drum kits and patterns via the cloud. I’ve shared my Tempest Industrial kit which is a set I made on a Dave Smith Instruments Tempest drum machine. The following is a video demonstration for my Industrial kit. I made this video a while back before the cloud kit feature was added.
