If you want your samples to sound full and fat in your favorite host app choose Vatanator
As a BM3,NS2,Stagelight,n-Track, Cubasis 2 and Auria Pro owner or user Ive clearly been looking for the best all in one app for music production on iOS
While nothing on this platform is perfect.. All I want is my drums to sound great in whatever I’m using and I’ve come to find Auria Pro to be the best all around DAW/AUv3 Host and with Vatanator as an AU I feel I have a very powerful and flexible way to create

Raw goodness

UPDATE: the beauty of this app is its sound. To me it has the sound of vintage drum machines. Musty, dusty and full of character in many ways but it can also be very intense. I use it for what it does, which is sound and feel awesome! Get their other apps too. They’re great!

This is one funky drum machine in so many ways. My favorite.
