Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

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 Aug 11, 2018 Version 2.2

– Improvement: Micro Recording for Sample Player got improved, showing input level, etc.
– New (Midi): Mic record button can now be triggered via Midi and will show sample view
– New (Midi): Autom & velocity buttons can now be triggered via Midi
– New (Midi): Program Change via IAA should work now also
– Improvement: „Record audio“ will not overwrite existing audio files anymore, but create new ones with a date ending
– Improvement (Jam screen): Midi notes will always trigger an instrument, even with „trig“ > 0 and stopped sequencer

– 6 synth channels with 13 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone, sampler)
– 12 parameters for each synth engine
– automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
– 4 send effect channels with 2×13 mono effects and 2×11 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
– Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
– Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

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!

With Ricepad you create music by arranging objects called modules in a single chain. You start from existing sounds, freely available from the online library, importable from your computer (Mac/PC/Linux/…) or pastable from the clipboard of compatible apps, or you can use the mic line(*).

Nearly every interaction can be quantized, even the preview of audio clips when you want to set up a drum kit.

Inspirations On The Go With Your iPhone & iPod Touch

Ricepad has an extensive set of modules and offers many different techniques to create music easily and quickly, leaving room to unleash your creativity. Every new idea can be saved as a session to be later re-opened for future use. This makes Ricepad suitable for casual and short plays, as well as for long and more structured live performances, even while playing with other apps thanks to the multi-tasking support. You can even record the audio of your performance, copy it to another app through the pasteboard or save it to file and export it to your desktop computer, so to reuse your new groove in a studio environment.
