Posted by Mikers On June - 10 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

mzl.clbburoo.480x480-75MetroCorder is a precise metronome, a high quality stereo recorder, and a practice timer all rolled into one application. It also includes various tools for managing recordings as well as a nice, intuitive interface.

Metronomics HD Metronome

Posted by Mikers On March - 15 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

mzl.qiqbtyrr.480x480-75Meet Metronomics HD, the full-featured practice suite big brother of the popular iPhone metronome Metronomics — the perfect practice tool for beginners, to seasoned professionals needing the most complex rhythmic options. Now available for iPad and OSX.

The Metronomics apps are the only metronomes that give you complete control over how subdivisions are played — use custom subdivisions (such as 5/7), custom samples, preset patterns, random intervals, sequenced grooves, silent measures, or anything else you can think of to help drive your practice routine.

Metronomics HD not only features a beautiful innovative interface optimized for the larger screens, but also a new set of features, including the “Inspector” mode. When activated, the Metronomics Inspector listens to and records your playing (either from a microphone or via MIDI input from the camera connection kit) an graphs it next to the metronome output, showing you how in time you are compared to the metronome. It will also analyze your playing and attempt show you how far away you were from the beat (measurements are precise when using MIDI input and based on audio analysis when using the microphone). With this feature, Metronomics HD moves beyond the normal one-dimensional metronome and becomes an even more useful practice tool, with interactive feedback on your playing. You can also choose to play back or export your practice session to listen back to what you played while watching the visual analysis from Metronomics.

Whether in Inspector mode or not, you have access to over 40 different samples for each subdivision, plus the ability to import your own WAV files to use as custom sample sounds. Use any of these samples for any type of subdivision, including common types like quarter notes or eighth note triplets, sequenced grooves like claves or ride cymbal patterns, or a “custom subdivision,” such as 7/5 or 25/4. Then, save your preferences and have everything synced over iCloud, allowing you to stay in sync with Metronomics HD on OSX if you also practice with your Mac.

– Generate patterns using random or sequenced variations of different subdivisions
– Include preset patterns such as claves (including odd-meter claves)
– Choose any number of beats per measure for your time signature, including mixed meters such as (4 + 3 + 5), where the segments of the bar get accented automatically
– Choose from 40 different included samples, or import your own WAV files
– Use any type of subdivision, including custom numbers (5/7, 13/4, etc)
– Move rhythms to unusual parts of the measure with the “offset feature” — think quarter note triplets, starting on an offbeat
– Sync your saved metronomes and presets between the iOS and OSX versions of Metronomics HD using iCloud
– Email saved metronomes back and forth with other Metronomics users
– “Inspector” feature graphs your playing alongside the Metronome, using microphone or MIDI input
– Play back or export your playing with the metronome
– Swing feel, with customizable swing amounts
– Metronome stays playing while in the background
– Use iOS multitasking remotes to control playback

Drums by Asrodot

Posted by Mikers On February - 21 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

mzl.txrctuhj.480x480-75Ask a drummer or a percussionist what a wooden coffee table sounds like. He or she will reply that every inch of the table sounds differently. Some parts of the table will sound somewhat like a bass drum. Other parts of the table will sound more like a rimshot. Parts in-between will sound like a mixture of both.

A drummer or a percussionist placed behind a wooden coffee table will soon discover many different sounds the table has to offer and use it to create stunning rhythms. Much to the joy of the drummer/percussionist, and possibly to the annoyance of the other people sitting at the table. The table metaphor has been used in the creation of Drums by Asrodot. Using the real estate of the iPad screen it has been made sure that every pixel sounds just a little bit different, which makes drumming on the iPad come to life. Want to create drumrolls with subtle accents every third note? Now you can.

This does not mean that Drums by Asrodot sounds like a coffee-table. The app comes loaded with six drum kits tailored for various styles of music.


– Expressive: Quick and responsive action. Every pixel sounds just a little different.

– 6 Drum Kits: Cajón, Xylophone, Jazz, IDM, Drum&Bass 1 + 2.

– Distortion: Increase gain to add a tube-like distortion that can dramatically change the sound.

– Delay Module: With tweakable time, feedback and mix settings.

– Customizable: Designed for both right-handed and left-handed drummers

alesis_dm_dock_pro_kitCumberland, R.I. (January 24, 2013) – Alesis, the world’s fastest-growing electronic drum brand, announces the DM Dock Kit and the DM7X Kit, two innovative new electronic drum sets. Alesis will exhibit the DM Dock Kit and the DM7X Kit at Booth 6700 at the 2013 NAMM show, January 24-27 in Anaheim, California.

The DM Dock Kit is a six-drum, four-cymbal drum set based around the DM Dock, a revolutionary drum module for iPad unveiled by Alesis in 2012. The set features four toms, a snare, the Alesis StealthKick drum trigger, a hi-hat, two crash cymbals with choke, and a three-zone ride cymbal with choke. The DM Dock Kit’s rugged steel rack is instantly adjustable with hinged quick-release clamps holding the drum pads and integrated cymbal arms that are easily converted in seconds from boom-style to straight.

Building upon the widely acclaimed design of the Alesis iO Dock, the DM Dock drum module harnesses the power of iPad for drummers, giving them a stage-ready device with 13 professional trigger inputs and balanced ¼” stereo main outputs. Thanks to the WiFi, Bluetooth®, AirPlay®, and 3G wireless connectivity of iPad, the DM Dock empowers drummers to change and enhance their sound library at a moment’s notice. With a compatible app, drummers can download new drums, cymbals, even a complete kit to suit any musical style or venue. Alesis will exhibit the DM Dock Kit along with DM Touch, a percussion app specifically designed by Alesis for the DM Dock. The app allows drummers to create new kits in seconds by simply dragging and dropping drum icons onto a virtual drum kit.

“The power and flexibility of the DM Dock Kit can hardly be overstated,” said David Gill, Alesis Engineering Manager. “We encourage any drummer to come by the booth and try it out; the DM Touch app is the easiest way to customize and experiment with different drum sounds and configurations. Drummers have never had this easy of a workflow, and the DM Dock Kit itself is bulletproof!”

Alesis will also exhibit the DM7X Kit, a premium six-piece electronic drum set. With its ultra-quiet rubber drum and cymbal pads, the DM7X Kit is ideal for professional drummers who want an electronic kit for quiet practice or for electronic percussionists looking to upgrade to a higher-quality kit with a professional module. The DM7X Kit features four 8” dual-zone toms, an 8” dual-zone snare, the Alesis StealthKick 2 compact drum trigger, a 10” hi-hat, a 10” crash cymbal with choke, and a 10” ride cymbal. The DM7X module is the newest module from Alesis and comes with 385 drum and percussion sounds arranged into 40 vintage and modern kits.

Groovy Beats

Posted by Mikers On January - 20 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

mzl.tjzfzxfj.480x480-75Groovy Beats is a fun way to create beautiful music when you have time to kill. Waiting in line? On the train? These are perfect times for trying out your creative genius! Use a range of instruments, tap out a pattern and listen how they sound together. It is like having an orchestra of your own to experiment with.

The idea is based on some original research on how music can be “seen” and how children can use patterns to make music. But the effect is amazing on both adults and children! It is a great way to introduce children to use their creativity in music, it teaches the fun of experimenting and at the same time helps with their visualization skills development – since effectively they are thinking of the effect of the pattern they are creating. It is equally fun for adults to play with it and find their hidden talent with music.

You just have to play with it once to know!

And to bring your genius to people the app comes with the ability to share with the world. There is a space to see what other people are creating, like them and follow them. Or you can just share with your friends on Facebook.


– 10 instruments to select from (including chords)
– Unlimited number of use of the instruments in different tunes
– Solo/Mute to play and perfect tune by tune
– Unlimited play by ability to extend the board
– Volume control for each tune and instrument
– Share with people
– Rate and get rated
