Simon Pettersson sent word on TableDrum – a new iOS app that uses ‘augmented audio’ to turn anything into a drum kit:
We have developed an Augmented Audio mobile application/music instrument that is really one of a kind and is available on the App Store.
Here is a demo video on how the app works!
The app is called TableDrum and allows you to sync the sound of any real physical object to trigger a real time response of high quality drum sounds. You can now build your own drumset from practically anything.
I would love if you tried it out and let the world know what you think!
TableDrum is designed to do live drum sound replacement, so you can hit various physical objects and turn the live sounds into a virtual drum kit.
Here’s how TableDrum works. To link a drum to a real physical object, you
- Hold down a drum pad until it starts glowing.
- Release and tap a real physical object several times (4-8) while the light fills the circle.
- When the linking process is done, the rim of the pad will glow.
The app recognizes sound, so for the app to work at its best, the sounds you link should be different and distinguished. While you are playing, hit the object the same way as when you linked it.
TableDrum is currently $1.99 in the App Store. If you give it a try, let us know what you think of it!
