Not just a super cool looking drum pad but a professional drum pad machine with almost all the drum sounds you would ever need and with lots of tweakablity. Almost 100 sounds to choose from ranging from rock and dance drums, bongos and maracas, special effects and more. You can edit each pad’s sound, level, pitch and decay. Store up to 4 custom drum kits. Velocity control on each pad depending on where you hit the pad. Ergonomically designed for either one-handed use or using both thumbs with ease. With visual feedback and lighting effects that add more enjoyment especially in the dark. Pad 3 is linked to pad 4 so you can mute an open high hat on pad 4 with a closed hat on pad 3 if you wish.
All sounds designed exclusively for this app and created from real drums and high quality drum synthesisers.
Zero latency so no annoying little delays.
Creating a custom drum kit is easy. Select a drum pad, edit settings and then after you press the red coloured save/load button to go into save mode, press one of the 4 memory locations to store and that is it. The save/load toggle mode will automatically switch back to load mode after you save.

Voxkit is a MIDI drum controller with a twist. In addition to touch pads on the screen, you can trigger notes with sound. Clap your hands, tap a pencil on a desk, or use your voice — Voxkit detects the tone of the sound, to trigger a sample from the app, or a MIDI note.

You can customize the sounds that Voxkit makes — add WAV format samples through iTunes File Sharing, to make the drum kit of your dreams.

Record your playing with the app, and then export the results as a WAV file (with Audio Copy, iTunes File Sharing, or by email). MIDI events are recorded too, with the same sort of export options.

With Audio Paste, you can import a song that you’re working on with another app, and then add a track of live drumming.

By listening to external sounds, rather than just the touch on a screen, Voxkit can capture the subtle velocity and rhythm variations of real drumming.

There are hundreds of apps that will let you program drums on a grid — and you wind up with something that sounds stale and mechanical. Break free with Voxkit!

Drum Clinic HD

Posted by Mikers On July - 15 - 2012 ADD COMMENTS

From the same guys that brought out Drum Loops HD, comes a series of tutorials for drummers, all conveniently contained in an app.

Drum clinic HD is the first real clinic by a pro drummer, purpose built for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch!
If you wanna learn more about grooves, fills, improvisation, rudiments, independence and brushes…….this is simply a must have!

Hans Eijkenaar is a well known and much sought after
session drummer in the Netherlands with a successful career both in Holland and abroad. His list of tours and recorded albums is huge and he is considered to be a specialist studio drummer. He is well known for being a versatile, creative and explosive drummer with a personal style………..best known for his pop and rock career………but with a history in jazz and fusion.
Hans is a Conservatory teacher (Codarts, Rotterdam) and has developed a powerful and transparent method for drummers of any style and of multiple levels.

He unleashes all of his knowledge and has developed some very special views on studying drums, studying rudiments in a unique independence system, playing in all types of meter, improvising and playing fills in a creative, rather than a standard way…..
He also is known for having a distinguished brushes technique for pop and rock which he demonstrates in several clips in a separate brushes chapter.

Hans has decided to go the extra mile in terms of recording a fully featured, HD audio and video clinic app with over 60 clips,
presentation videos, instruction videos and play alongs. And he has recorded a separate chapter with drum solos………
All filmed with 6 XD HD cams to capture for once and for all every angle you wanna see as a drummer. Everything recorded in one of the finest recording studios around, Soundvisionstudios, Arnhem, the Netherlands.

‘Drum clinic HD’ needs (after downloading….) no further internet connection as all the videos are to be found within the app itself, enabling you to watch, listen and study anywhere you like.

Drum Loops HD

Posted by Mikers On July - 15 - 2012 ADD COMMENTS

Not everyone has access to a great session drummer, or can program a half decent drum groove. These guys have come to the rescue with a large collection of drum loops that have been recorded by..wait for it… a real drummer. Worth checking out if your ‘chops’ aren’t up to scratch…

approx. 700 recorded loops and samples to paste into your multitrack app or to play along to for practicing/warming up or fun!

If you are serious about making songs, tracks or music in general on the iPad or iPhone, this is a clear and simple must have! A real drummer on your songs with a smashing sound!

• complete drum loop library for anyone making music on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch!!
• copy-paste to your favorite multitracker!
• perfect drummer to play along with endlessly if you want to perfect your timing on any instrument (all grooves loop automatically within the app itself).
• performed, recorded and built (may 2012) only for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Main points of interest:

• many styles in many bpms (check content list).
• two sounds for all loops and fills in every style and tempo (modern and vintage).
• 4/4, 6/8 loops and shuffles, brushes loops, loops in straight time and shuffled time.
• uncut, not time stretched, not chopped but actual high end recordings.
Audio quality: 44.1 khz, 16 bit (cd).
• All loops and fills actually played in all bpms, a living and breathing drummer!

You get 7 styles all based on what is needed to program
a great track, the bpms have been carefully chosen and are commonly used tempi in modern music production. If you need to stretch or compress a loop you will thus always be very close to your desired bpm! All loops fills and hits can be
copied directly to your pasteboard for use in any multitrack app.

Furthermore, all loops have been cut into in eighter 2 or 4 bar
loops and have been recorded simultaniously in two explicitely
different microphone settings; a ‘modern’ (close miking with room ambience) setting of 14 mics and a ‘vintage’ mic setting of in total 5 mics around the set.
This means that you can use different sounds for
verse/chorus/bridge/intro (with fills to glue it together) by eighter using the same loop in different sounds, or using different loops for the respective parts of your song.

A seperate chapter has been included with cymbal hits, cymbal hits with kick, cymbalrolls and endings (big fills) to complete a full drum part played by a real drummer!!

All loops were performed by Hollands first call session drummer, Hans Eijkenaar in the very best of recording studios on offer, Sound Vision Studios in Arnhem. Recorded with state of the art modern and vintage mics.
