Patterning Drum Machine Adds Cloud-Based Drum Kit Sharing

Olympia Noise Company has updated Patterning, its iPad drum machine application, introducing “Cloud Kits” – cloud-based drum kit sharing.

Cloud Kits gives you access to a huge collection of new drum kits. Users can also upload drum kits with their own samples, custom artwork, and automatically generated audio previews, and then share the kits in the app and via social media.

Cloud Kits Features :

  • Growing collection of free, user-created drum kits.
  • Browse and download kits directly in Patterning.
  • Listen to audio previews before you download.
  • Up-vote your favorite drum kits.
  • Browse Cloud Kits by genre or using search.
  • Sort by popularity, date, artist name, or drum kit name.
  • Easily create and upload new drum kits with your samples, custom artwork, audio previews, and artist info.
  • Share to Facebook, Twitter, or Copy Link to Clipboard. Drum Kits are also viewable to non-Patterning users on the web.

Other  updates in Patterning 1.3 include:

  • Built-in Dropbox Support –  You can now browse Dropbox in the app, allowing you to import multiple audio files without leaving Patterning. Available from the “IMPORT” menu of the Sample Library.
  • Exported audio and Ableton Live Sets now correctly bounce loops with auto-rotate enabled and alternate playback modes.
  • Fixed logic for auto-rotation in alternate playback modes. You can revert to the old logic via the iOS Settings application.
  • Fix issue which cause Audiobus Trigger buttons to not appear right away.
  • Latest Audiobus SDK

Pricing and Availability

Patterning is available for US $9.99 in the App Store.

    1. You mean as opposed to Android apps? The audio latency issues in Android are not resolvable, at least until Google moves to their new Fuchsia OS (2020, maybe?)

    2. Why are there musicians that, even after Google has ignored the possibilities of mobile music making for a decade, still think that it’s somebody else’s fault that all the great music apps are on iOS?

    3. This has to do with how Android is designed. Apple only has to care about their own processors – Google has to write code in a way that every garage company can make it work with their own products.
