Ratings and Reviews
I haven’t found anything else that begins to rival its’s sound shaping creative potential.
I’m sure there’s others that offer similar depth but in regard to the most popular drum synths this is a totally different species (but what constitutes a “drum synth” appears to be an arguable topic).
For me the emphasis of this app is on creating sounds more than immediacy of play because of the vast amount of editable parameters which allow you to star literally from scratch.
Altho, It has great performance options & presets as well, There’s some good flexible drum synths that are plug-n-play quality, and can be individualized w/ a few quick adjustments and are more widely used because of auv3 convenience.
no auv3 here but given the depth of tweaking that is possible, I don’t expect it to be. It sounds so good I can listen to the beats sans music while assembling them in the the great sequencer.
Very simple to send beats to other apps. This is an incredible app.
I love the way you can make your own sounds with this; it doesn’t need to be just drums. The randomization options are awesome. Great layout and it isn’t much slower to work with on the iphone. I really wish there were some more in depth midi control options for the sounds; as much as possible, but I understand the envelopes could be tricky since you can choose how many points you want to add for each one. An AU version would be nice. I hope development continues!
This would be top 2 drum app with full midi control
As the title suggests, I love this app like crazy, but lack of midi control is killing my live set. You only have midi for 8 patterns and each drum for finger drumming. At bare min give us snapshot selection too... And snapshot - pattern combo presets. And more than 8 patterns. Or sell the engine to someone who will. Midi llearn should be on every feature like every other decent drum or synth app... Check patterning and ElasticDrums for inspiration.
The sounds are PHENOMENAL though, and randomize features are fantastic. Please add more midi so I can really use those sound engines to their potential. AU3 for even more cred, make it an iap, take my money!!!!
