New Groovebox App For iPad, Zillidrone

zilldroneDeveloper Andrey Savitsky has introduced Zillidrone – a sample-based groovebox for creating, performing and interacting with 32-step sequences for snares, kicks, hi-hats, sampler and two multioscillator synthesizers.

Here’s what he has to say about Zillidrone:

Use drum pads for making extra drum shots over the saved drum patterns. Shuffle samples, randomize patterns, use synth preset sequencers, apply DSP effects with automations to produce a wide range of sound transformations for your composition.
