TR-707 Drum Machine For iOS

Tr-707 For iOS

mobileRhythm mR-7070 – Vintage Drum Machine for iPhone and iPod Touch.

Drum machine app with an unmistakable 1980’s look and sound.

History behind the Roland TR-707: It resembles the popular TR-909, and better yet, its hi-hat, cymbals, and clap sound almost identical to the TR-909. It has some other cool features not available on the 909. It has Matrix display which clearly maps out your pattern for you in an easy to read display panel.

For programming, it features a shuffle and flam effect and its programming abilities are very impressive. But it does have its limitations, the only adjustment you can make to each drum tone is volume.

App Features:

-MIDI in, out and MIDI clock out
-Precise tempo control with digital readout.
-4×16 banks for pattern storage.
-Individual faders for each drum sound.
-Multiple beat divisions for crazy time signatures with adjustable last step.
-Rock solid timing.
-Grid-view pattern display.
…And much more.

The hardware drum machines and beatboxes from the 1980’s have defined musical genres from House, Acid, Hip-Hop, right up to and including the latest Dub-step, Grime and other electronic music beats.

The mR-7070 works just like the original beatboxes, and anyone who is a fan of music will instantly recognise the classic sounds it produces.

Its easy to program even complicated beats and with plenty of storage space to store your creations.

MIDI settings are in the iOS settings app, and will work with any “CORE MIDI” interface.

mR-7070 is NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Spoke Groove Machine

Spoke Groove Machine

Here’s another quiry app. It’s called Spoke Groove Machine.

✇ Spoke is not your typical drum machine.

✇ Spoke is the perfect scratchpad for making loops of any style.

✇ Spoke has no grid, just free-flowing beats.

This is what Spoke seeks: analog positioning on a digital platform.

Of course we are limited by resolution. Of course this limit is arbitrary. Of course this limit is transitory. Of course this limit need not go very high before we supercede human timing accuracy.

Nonetheless this is the spirit: do away with the position grid, do away with the quantize. Place the beats where they need to be. Place the beats where they sound most true.

➠ The colored discs represent individual drum sounds that you can drag onto the cicrcular platter.

➠ Position sound discs around the platter, as on a turntable. Discs close to the center will be quiet, while those on the perimiter will be loud.

➠ Drag sounds off the platter to erase them. Shake the phone to clear the platter.

➠ Use the arrow buttons near the bottom to switch into SAVE, SWAP, or LOAD mode. Then click one of the circular slots to perform the action. You can use these slots to save your compositions. They will still be there the next time you open Spoke.

➠ The default tempo is 120 bpm. Tap quarter notes in the center four times in a row to set a new tempo, anywhere from 60 to 240 bpm.
