Noisepad iPad Drum Machine

Noisepad is a user friendly drum computer, sequencer and beat creator made specifically for live performances and instant result.

It has been designed to give you the most functionality and fun without having to go through a steep learning curve. After installation you’ll find 5 preloaded soundbanks of 12 samples each, ready to start the beat making. You’ll be bouncing your head within 5 minutes, that’s a promise!

The onboard sequencer allows you to program up to 12 patterns on-the-fly, each with their own duration (1 — 99 bars). Switching between patterns is seamless; the sequencer makes sure the next pattern starts when the current has finished. Apply effects to the pattern, mute samples or have them playing solo on your command. Adjust the Beats Per Minute with precision or by tapping at the speed of the beat and add a bit of swing to make the beat feel just right.

It adds a new dimension to your live-sets, parties and all places where you want to make noise. Synchronize the BPM with the music you’re playing and add a little bit of your own flavor to it, or simply trigger the samples by hand. Real-time effects such as pitch, delay, cut-off, phase, reverb and bit-crush will bring your noise to life.

Organize the samples into your own custom soundbanks using the built-in organizer. Once you’re done playing with the packaged samples, the in-app shop provides additional soundpacks to discover or you can load your own samples using iTunes File Sharing for unlimited possibilities.

Noisepad Ver 2.0 is available for $0.99 for a limited time.

The interesting thing (which differs this app from other grooveboxes) is shuffle editor. You may define overall shuffling patterns in addition to common beat patterns. So you could make some jazzy grace notes and non straight beats. There is a bit of automation for pitch. You can use variation to bring more life into your beat sequence.

The word “lite” means it has NO RECORDING (only pattern saving) and song editor yet.

Click Space is available for free
