DrumPerfect Brings ‘Human’ Drum Sequencing To The iPad

drumperfect-ipad-drum-machineMarinus J.G. van de Molengraft has released DrumPerfect – a drum sequencer for IOS 7, designed for creating natural sounding drum tracks.

DrumPerfect features three extensive editors to create very ‘human’ drum sequences:

  • An extensive pattern editor in which each individual drum stroke has its own velocity, timing and probability. Each pattern has its own BPM, time signature and beat subdivision settings. Multiple strokes can be linked to a single probabilistic event.
