Developer Luis Martinez let us know about a new virtual drummer iOS app from LumBeat music software, Soft Drummer.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
Soft Drummer is the closest thing to a pro session subtle drummer in your pocket.
Easy to use and fast, it’s much more than a drum machine because it can improvise musically with the most pure acoustic drumming sound, played with brushes, hot rods and hands, giving warmest grooves for jazz, soft pop, ballads, latin, etc…
And it’s got Ableton Link, so it can synchronize to most pro iOS music apps.
Here’s the official video intro:
- 50 multilayer sounds, with 3 different hit types (ghost note, accented note and drag / open ) x 3 RoundRobin alternating samples.
- Improved Jam algorithm with more control to set which instruments can improvise. (iPad)
- Round Robin alternating samples, combining 3 layer samples of each stroke makes a extremely natural sound.
- Random generators to get creative ideas instantly.
