Big Robot Studios has released Robotic Drums for iOS, an analog-modeled drum synth coupled with probabilistic sequencing.
- A minimalist interface, with a high emphasis in flow.
- 6 analog modeled synthesized voices.
- A probability sequencer. You control how “random” a sequence is.
- Quantized pattern switching.
- Dropbox support for saving sessions and sharing across devices.
- AudioBus support.
- Midi clock sync support.
Here’s a demo of Robotic Drummer in action:
Robotic Drummer Details:
- VOICES – There are 6 analog modeled synthesized voices, each with a noise and an oscillator section. This flexible configuration allows each voice to generate sounds that range from punchy bass drums, to snappy snares, to lo-fi tones, to sound effects and much else in between.
- THE PROBABILITY SEQUENCER – The sequencer for each voice is based on probabilities. A step on a sequence is not just a “switch” but a measure of “how likely is this step to be triggered”. This allows for highly dynamic sequences that maintain a certain base, but never sound the same from one pass to another.
- THE PATTERNS SECTION – Each session can hold 16 patterns. Switching patterns in a live situation is always controlled by a pattern quantization parameter, which determines when the pattern switch actually happens. This allows for pattern switches to occur exactly when expected, maintaining the musical flow of a piece.
- SESSIONS – Sessions can be saved to Dropbox, this allows to share sessions across devices or even to use as an easy method to share patches with the community.
Robotic Drummer is available now for $4.99 in the App Store.
