Drum Toy iPad App

Drum Toy by Robby Kilgore

During his misspent youth, Robby was a prominent “session player” performing live and on numerous records with such household names as Steve Winwood, Mick Jagger, James Taylor, Eric Clapton and Cyndi Lauper. He is also a Grammy Award winning composer and producer with several film and television scores to his credit.

Drum Toy uses an admittedly weird drum machine architecture and concept. You create basic loops using Drum Toy’s Every and Offset knobs, and then feather in the secret ingredient: Probability!

In a way, Drum Toy ‘thinks’ the way drummers do. Find the pocket, lay down the main groove and sprinkle lightly with a few tasty fills or variations here and there to keep things fresh. Drum Toy is set up to force certain beats while leaving others to just the right amount of chance. This simple mechanism yields a surprising array of personality.

Drum Toy – the world’s funkiest practice metronome.
