Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Elastic-Drums-Icon

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 1.7.4

* debugged swing function
* reworked jam screen with xy pad for master effects
* song audio recording starts from pattern 1 now
* now you can audio record all 6 drum channels separate, additionally to the master output record. Recordings will land in the documents folder, accessible via iTunes
* new presets from Shadow Dancer

Shadow Dancer Elastic Drums

Features:
– 6 synth channels with 12 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone)
– 12 parameters for each synth engine
– automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
– 4 send effect channels with 2×11 mono effects and 2 x 9 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
– iOS 8 supported
– Audiobus supported
– Inter-App audio (IAA) supported with transport control
– Midi start/stop/sync

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.

Plans for upcoming versions:
– Midi notes recording
– native screen size for iPhone 6, 6+
– new sequencer features (rolls, etc.)
– new synth engines (other percussions, sampler, etc)

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.

Drums By Asrodot Version 1 2 Now Universal and with Velocity Sensitivity
Author View comments Tags Tags: , ,

Drums by Asrodot iPad Drum App

What’s New in Version 1.2

Universal – You now can run Drums by Asrodot on your iPhone or iPod touch

Velocity Sensitivity – You can add dynamics by tapping harder or softer. You can tweak the amount of sensitivity or disable it all together.

Designed by a musician for musicians Drums by Asrodot brings a novel twist to drumming on the iPad.

Ask a drummer or a percussionist what a wooden coffee table sounds like. He or she will reply that every inch of the table sounds differently. Some parts of the table will sound somewhat like a bass drum. Other parts of the table will sound more like a rimshot. Parts in-between will sound like a mixture of both.

A drummer or a percussionist placed behind a wooden coffee table will soon discover many different sounds the table has to offer and use it to create stunning rhythms. Much to the joy of the drummer/percussionist, and possibly to the annoyance of the other people sitting at the table.

The table metaphor has been used in the creation of Drums by Asrodot. Using the real estate of the iPad screen it has been made sure that every pixel sounds just a little bit different, which makes drumming on the iPad come to life. Want to create drumrolls with subtle accents every third note? Now you can.

This does not mean that Drums by Asrodot sounds like a coffee-table. The app comes loaded with six drum kits tailored for various styles of music.

Features:

– Expressive: Quick and responsive action. Every pixel sounds just a little different. Velocity sensitive; you can add dynamics by tapping harder or softer.

– 6 Drum Kits: Cajón, Xylophone, Jazz, IDM, Drum&Bass 1 + 2.

– Distortion: Increase gain to add a tube-like distortion that can dramatically change the sound.

– Delay Module: With tweakable time, feedback and mix settings.

– Customizable: Designed for both right-handed and left-handed drummers.

– Audiobus support: You can stream live audio directly to other Audiobus-compatible apps. See http://audiob.us for more information.

Drums by Asrodot is available for $0.99
