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 wwitch to Sampler mode to play back samples the ordinary way.

Fantastic, insanely good.

Insanely good. Sugar Bytes became one of my favorite iOS app designers. I first discovered their Factory app, then Aparillo (wow!) and now Drum Computer! The apps are innovative, offer tasteful sound control, are clever, intuitive to use and incredibly powerful. This app is worth every penny! I can create very interesting and original sounding beats in seconds with ease, yet the app does not overpower my creativity with its own suggestion of what the beat should be.

I’ll also mention that they have fantastic support, they solved a small issue I initially had with Factory. Very friendly and helpful!

Thank you for this awesome app!

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?

Excellent sound, versatile sequencer, best I’ve used

This is the first review I’ve ever felt compelled to write. This is the most inspiring app I’ve gotten for iPad. The sound quality is excellent for synthesis, and the sequencer has SO many useful features. It can really be your all in one if you load some samples, too.
I had a Roland TR-8S. This sounds better, is more intuitive, has a more inspiring and useful sequencer, and costs a lot less. Without question this is the best drum synthesizer and sequencer for iOS.
