Pulse Code has released Boom 808 – a virtual TR-808 for the iPad.
Boom 808 offers Audiobus compatibility, background audio, and audio export options. Along with the classic drum sounds, Boom 808 has a built in compressor that is ‘tuned to add punch to your drum beats’. Soft saturation overdrive rounds out the signal chain.
Using Boom 808 with Audiobus allows you to add any number of Audiobus compatible effects, as well as record your beats into the app of your choice. Boom 808 can be sequenced with the internal step sequencer or via CoreMIDI.
