Diode-108 Adds MIDI Sync Out

Now you can slave your other apps and hardware to Diode-108 drum machine for iPad with MIDI sync out. You can also send MIDI notes out from Diode-108 as well.

Diode-108 is the only iPad drum machine on the market with direct control over every effect—HIT BY HIT. The new leader in drum machines is here, with 16 voices (not 9), drag-and-drop per beat effects, note mode to change pitch, and the ability to make and share kits. Revolutionize your groove-making and create sounds you’ve never heard before.

Don’t control just one or two effects—control pan, volume, tone, pitch, decay, compression, and distortion, delay, and reverb on every beat—not just per track.

Diode-108 is packed with a variety of built-in vintage, classic, and acoustic kits, but you can easily mix and match samples to make your own custom kits. Or import wav files for even more variety. Once you’ve built your groove, DIODE-108’s drag-and-drop effects make it fun and easy to create completely new beats.

What’s New in Version 1.4.0

This version adds MIDI sync out and MIDI note out to Diode-108’s already existing MIDI in capabilities.

Diode-108 iPad Drum Machine

SEQUENCER

Build your beat on a 16×16 pattern grid. 16 voices is almost twice the number of voices of some of our competitors, and it means that you can have an 808 kit with all the instruments you’re looking for (not just some of them). Set tempo and swing. Several time signatures are supported (and each pattern can have its own).



PADS

Tap your beat on our 4-by-4 array of drum pads. Record into the active pattern, or just play along.



DRUM MACHINE

Unprecedented control over your drum kit. Dial in the settings you want, mix and match samples from different kits, and save out your modified custom kits for use in any song. How much control do you have? An amazing 7 dials for each of the 16 drum voices!



FX

Diode-108’s crown jewel is its drag-and-drop beat FX. Want a reverse cowbell? Want a bitcrushed tom? Want a cymbal that performs a pitch dive across several beats? Just drag and drop the effect tokens onto beats, and drag them left and right to cover any beats you like. Turn a long-lasting cymbal into a rhythmic backbone.

SONG


Build up a collection of named patterns from scratch, or import selected patterns from existing songs. Then drag and drop the patterns to build up a song.

Export your songs as wav files via a variety of options.

Best Sounding Natural Drums For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

DrumPerfect
DrumPerfect – the drum machine that brings real sounding drums to your iPad. DrumPerfect features three extensive editors to easily create very human-like drum sequences:

– An extensive pattern editor in which each individual drum stroke has its own velocity, timing and probability. Each pattern has its own BPM, time signature and beat subdivision settings. Multiple strokes can be linked to a single probabilistic event. Grid view mode facilitates fast setup of new patterns. Play and record new patterns with the velocity-sensitive Live-pad.

– An extensive kit editor with room for up to 16 different drum kits with 16 instruments each. Every instrument consists of up to 16 different user-selectable audio samples. 9 multi-sampled kits included: Jazz-Funk, Acoustic, Dry, Vintage Funk, Garage, Brush, Percussion, and 2 vintage electronic kits. High-quality convolution reverb per kit.

– An extensive song editor in which a song is built of pattern/kit events. Import midi files as DrumPerfect songs.

The “Two-handed” and “Humanize” features give a human feel to the rhythm by modelling the human drummer restrictions and variations. The unique ability to merge patterns of any time signature allows to create new patterns from existing ones. Active CPU Load Control ensures smooth operation, also on iPad2/3 models.

DrumPerfect offers extensive options for audio-transfer with other apps:

– Live-audio source for other apps via Audiobus and Inter-App-Audio (IAA). Separate output per instrument. Audiobus State Saving supported.
