Use this image as a guide to show you where all six of the Ruismaker FM drums live in regards to midi mapping when using Fugue Machine as a drum sequencer. Click the image to enlarge it. Ruismaker FM mapping in Fugue Machine. In the pic I have all the play heads set to octave -1 you can set that to 0 but you’ll just have to move the piano roll up and octave. Make sure pitch is set to 0 and key is C# Ionian Major.

The following video is a demonstration that uses Fugue Machine as drum sequencer for Ruismaker FM.

The four play heads in Fugue Machine can change a simple beat into something a bit more complex.

Patterning Icon

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.

Best Drums For iPhone

iGOG best drum machine for iphone

iGOG – possibly the best drum machine for iPhone. Has touch sensitivity, multi-sampled instruments, a sequencer, and more. Jeez, I remember having a couple different drum machines back in the late 80s early 90s. Now all you need is your phone and this app!

Genuine Touch-sensitive Pads:
iGOG introduces the impossible: touch sensitive pads that respond to how hard you hit them! iGOG accurately responds to your touch. The harder you strike the pads, the louder the drum hit. Finally, a drum machine that plays like a real kit.

Mic Triggering Mode:
iGOG also lets you play other objects, such as a table and turns those hits into real drum sounds while you play! This gives a whole new dimension to “air drumming”.

Drumagog Technology:
iGOG contains a powerful drum sample engine which captures every nuance of a drum hit. Because a snare drum sounds different the harder it’s played, iGOG’s samples are packed with Dynamic Multisamples to ensure a faithful reproduction. iGOG’s Random Multisamples guarantee that no sample is ever played twice in a row, making rolls and flams sound realistic. Hi-hats take advantage of iGOG’s Positional Multisamples, which provide a smooth transition between closed and open styles. Simply slide your finger across the rectangular pad. iGOG also automatically switches between left and right hand samples, making drum rolls sound amazing.


8 velocity sensitive drum pads
Comes with 6 free drum kits. More available through the built-in store
Load your own kits using standard wav, aif or Drumagog .gog files
Hi-hat and Ride pads change articulation as you slide across the pads
Built-in sequencer with standard midi file support
MIDI export: save your sequences to your computer
Sequencer features quantize, metronome, time signature, count-in, tempo and loop
Backing track mode lets you play and record sequences in perfect sync to an mp3 file
Mic trigger mode lets you play drums by tapping on objects, such as a table
Built-in file transfer mode allows you to copy files between iGOG and your computer
Mixdown feature lets you create an audio mix of your sequence

VelAUcity – Just because something is impossible doesn’t mean it can’t be done.

iGOG’s proprietary VelAUcity technology does the unthinkable and turns the iPhone’s screen into touch sensitive drum pads. Play loud, play soft, or play a full-blown crescendo on a crash cymbal, iGOG will capture every nuance of your performance. Just plug in your headphones and start playing.

NOTE: VelAUcity is only available on iPhone devices. if you’re using an iPod Touch, VelAUcity is disabled.
