Beep Street Impaktor – a iOS drum synthesizer that turns any surface into a playable percussion instrument. – is now available.
Impaktor works by capturing real acoustical impulses from the built-in microphone and using them as an excitation source for advanced sound modules that simulate the behavior of membranes, cymbals, metallophones or strings. This makes Impaktor a highly responsive and expressive instrument.
With semi-modular architecture and several types of synthesis, Impaktor can produce a wide range of tones, from acoustic, like Tabla, Djembe, Marimba, Cymbals, Metal bars to electronic or industrial sounds.
Impaktor is available in the App Store for $4.99.
