iZotope today announced that iDrum, its beat creation application for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch, is now available on the Apple App Store.
The iDrum application takes advantage of unique features of the iPhone platform — users can tap virtual pads to create rhythms, shake the handset to clear patterns, and use slide and flick gestures to navigate the application’s interface. Immersive, colorful visuals show the relationship between different sounds in the beat, allowing users to create new rhythms by creating visual patterns.
Using a special companion application, beats can be turned into ringtones for iPhone.
The first two versions of iDrum, Hip Hop Edition and Club Edition, are now available for US$4.99 each from Apple’s App Store. iZotope plans to release different genre-based editions of iDrum in the coming months.
