Just getting started

So, I got this app and a few of the IAP’s (next is ‘import sample’) and then didn’t use it for a while. At first, I don’t even know why but I thought it was hokey. Honestly, I had yet to figure out the velocity function (this is now huge for me, in other apps too, much like LFO) and wasn’t impressed with the layout or even the sounds. Fast forward to about a month ago and I’m digging deeper. I really was looking for more organic sounding drums but have found that the sounds this app is capable of is extremely versatile. And I’m sure once I acquire the import IAP I’ll be totally addicted. I’m really just getting started with this app even though I’ve had for quite some time. I give it 5 stars simply because there is so much more to it than meets the eye.

Great drum synth, add AU and individual outs and it would be Amazing

I have been scouring the web to find a simple yet dynamic drum synth and this is well on its way to becoming just that! I managed to keep myself entertained for a several hours making ‘live’ techno on one pattern! (Adjusting it on the fly). I love how far you can stretch a sound with this... seriously, with a couple nice fx on it there is a lot to play with and evolve over time. Absolutely part of my regular arsenal now.

All I need to give it 5 stars is - Individual track outs and AU. I’m sure this has been requested.... I don’t think it needs much else, because everything else you can do in a host channel strip just fine... Not to say I wouldn’t like more drum synths to choose from, or FX..., but srsly, please get me individual outs and I will be all lollipops and rainbows about this nearly perfect beast of an app!

Elastic drums are the most useful iOS drum machine machine

There’s a lot of competition for iOS drum machines. There are hundreds of 808 and 909 clones. App releases a new Mac iOS version every couple of months.
The iSpark is pretty decent, but
A: is only available for iPad
B: Isn’t actually a hardware drum set up, it’s just a A midi controller that will only work for the Arturo’s software.
C: All iSpark is Going to cost three or $400. The midi device is 250, Which includes the ispark software. It’s kind of a little bit an extra kick in the teeth when lots of my purchased Arturia adding for spark vat needed to be re-purchased for the iOS version It is it double bummer. After all of that you have to manually move presets and sounds That’s compared to $10 for Elastic drums.
D: elastic drums has a great randomizer so in 15 seconds you can have a completely different rhythm or bank
