Developer Maz & Kilgore has released Drum Toy, an iOS drum machine that uses probability and rules to create variety in its patterns.
Here’s what the developer has to say about Drum Toy:
Drum Toy uses an admittedly weird drum machine architecture and concept. You create basic loops using Drum Toy’s Every and Offset knobs, and then feather in the secret ingredient: Probability!
In a way, Drum Toy ‘thinks’ the way drummers do. Find the pocket, lay down the main groove and sprinkle lightly with a few tasty fills or variations here and there to keep things fresh. Drum Toy is set up to force certain beats while leaving others to just the right amount of chance. This simple mechanism yields a surprising array of personality.
Drum Toy – the world’s funkiest practice metronome.
M.I.A.: MIDI support.
Drum Toy is $.99 in the App Store.
