Borrowing technology from Drumagog iGOG features up to 384 multisampled drum hits per pad.

iGOG introduces the impossible: touch sensitive pads that respond to how hard you hit them! Using WaveMachine Labs own patent pending VelAUcity technology, iGOG accurately responds to your touch. The harder you strike the pads, the louder the drum hit. Finally, a drum machine that plays like a real kit.

Note: VelAUcity features are not available on iPod Touch.

Drumagog Technology iGOG contains a powerful drum sample engine which captures every nuance of a drum hit. Because a snare drum sounds different the harder it’s played, iGOG’s samples are packed with Dynamic Multisamples to ensure a faithful reproduction. iGOG’s Random Multisamples guarantee that no sample is ever played twice in a row, making rolls and flams sound realistic. Hi-hats take advantage of iGOG’s Positional Multisamples, which provide a smooth transition between closed and open styles. Simply slide your finger across the rectangular pad!

  1. Velocity on an iphone…interesting…Has it got to do with the amount of the finger's surface that touch the screen? I suppose that when you hit harder the screen, finger skin takes instantly more space on the surface…
