New App Turns Android Phone Into A Vintage Drum Machine

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usHt_Rz4Olg

This is an Android application called Silicon Oxide that simulates an old analog, preset-based drum machine like the Korg Mini Pops 7, used in synth classics from the 1970’s.

No samples used, all instruments are played using software-modeled oscillators, filters and envelope generators.

The strangeness in the bass drum sound is an artifact from Youtube conversion, it’s not in the original audio.
