Depth modulation area with envelopes, LFOs, and a complex modulation matrix to change most parameters using a wide array of sources.
Finest noise table conversion technology, followed by a filter, distortion and side chain compressor.

••• Sequencer •••
Enjoy smart randomization to create patterns that feel natural and organic and add some feeling to the pattern with swing and 'humanization'.
Move various parameters along to match the notes, such as velocity, pitch, decay, probability, roll and offset.

••• Kit Page •••
Bring all the individual sounds together in one place, select new sound presets or even randomly generate new sounds based on various sound type profiles and give your kit some character, punch and an analogue feel!

••• Mix •••
With Volume, Mute, Solo, Pan as well as two reverb return channels you can send any of your sounds to at any time and also assign the mixer parameters as modulation destinations.
The Room reverb gives you a nice familiar space, letting you glue together multiple drum sounds, while the Hall reverb gives a massive space you can use either as a utility, or as way to fire your sounds off into the cosmos!

••• Mapping •••
Create up to 16 individual patterns (from scratch, or using the easy copy/paste function), and chain these together into a sequence, up to 16 patterns long. Use your MIDI keyboard or controller to send values that quickly and seamlessly switch between patterns on the fly.
Quickly remove and add the individual hits, trigger rolls of different speeds, or even have them as pitch modifiers.

••• Auto- and Manual Remixing/Fills •••
Mash up your patterns with one simple parameter and produce all sorts of automatic and random edits to your sound.
Add creative fills and variations to your loop to keep it constantly moving with fresh ideas - great for jamming or to prevent audio stagnation.

••• Wavetable/Resynth Import & Sampler •••
Import your own audiofiles to create Wavetables. Resynthesize Hihats, Snares, even Chords with the Resynth import feature or switch to Sampler mode to play back samples the ordinary way.

Oh my goodness!

Buy this app!
If I could, I would buy it twice, just to throw more money at the devs.
If you need a drum machine for your music production, this is it! You can tweak every single instrument/drum into depth with resonator, wave and filter options. You can use a sequencer to create your own pattern, randomize each instrument, change velocity, probability... You can load a preset, then use a randomizer button to keep the pattern but change the settings for the instruments. Basically, you can do almost anything you could need to. Plus the color coded design and looks are amazing. Use this as an AU Extension or a standalone production app. Just use it... trust me.

Love it!!! -but sale price is not showing up when trying to upgrade -
This app is one of my favorite drum/groove apps and SugarBytes apps across the board have been go-to and unique like no others for as long as I can remember.

However, right now any help sorting out sale price glitch in app store to upgrade to full version would be amazing. The app in the description says that there is a sale right now for the upgrade to the full version but when I go to purchase it I am prompted to pay the full price. Can you please help get this sorted?

That being said, it’s got the best of both FM drum sounds and the ability to load your own samples, which can also be tweaked to perfection and/or destruction.

In terms of drawbacks I haven’t really had any, but I suppose you might depending on how you use it. Throwing a bunch of AU instances up unto AUM with other midi friends can be help you waste hours and hours without ever becoming bored or convinced you’ve heard it all (because you haven’t). I suppose improvements could be made, but I you’ll have your hands full as is.
