Here’s what they have to say about their approach:
Since waves are the primal source of all cyclical motion in the Universe, it makes sense to tap into them for musical purposes other than synthesizers. Not only can waves create sounds, they can play sounds too! Basically, we have discovered the “Fountain of Drumming” and we are sharing our discovery with the world!
- 8 Drum Tracks with 4-wave Cyclophone Controls
- Control drum pitches, rests, ties and dynamics
- Instant Capture in case you hear a killer beat you want saved
- Save Wave Sets to Wave Library
- String Wave Sets together in saved Sequences
- Export Wave Sets as MIDI Files (via iTunes)
- Over 70 stereo drum sounds (each update will have more)
- Over 70 musical scales
- Reverb effect and mixer
- Automation for randomizing and morphing playback
No demo videos or audio demos are available at this point for Different Drummer, and features like MIDI sync, found in other iPad drum machine apps, are missing in action. Other developers, though, have not tapped into the “Fountain Of Drumming”.
Different Drummer is available for $299.99 in the App Store.
