D0TS Echoplex is a basic music sequencer designed to let you perform the Nine Inch Nails song “Echoplex”. During the “Lights In The Sky” tour, the band used to play this song with a giant sequencer at the background of the stage.
D0TS Echoplex gives you the same visuals and sounds, so you can easily recreate the drum line, right in your hand. Feel free to use this application as a music instrument to play the song live by yourself, or with your band.

Better for the most part
but still has a few issues. As you are building the beat, it plays 2 hits simultaniously. It's not until you complete the entire beat that it starts to sound normal. I wouldn't even call it a set back because I've made some intersting drum outro's with this sound. Works much better now when the seperate samples are playing together now and the added samples are great. Almost perfect, but still a favorite since I downloaded the original. Keep up the great work. Now if only this could be done somehow with tool beats.....
Has issues/potential, but overall it's a pretty sweet app.
It gets a bit weird as you add tracks to the beat, more with the bass and vocals than the guitar, they don't stay with the beat. I'd say that that's about it for any problems. It's a fun app, but I'd love to see an addition that could make it so you could change the tempo. I've managed to figure out the beats to a few other NIN songs, if i could change the tempo (and it's a long shot, but maybe even the drum sounds) it would be perfect.
Years later... Still fun
I first downloaded this app a few years ago, On my 1st gen iPod touch. I sol that and finally got an iPhone this year and revisited this app. It's still fun and entertaining to put together the drums like Josh did during the LITS tour. Having the g/b/v tracks is a nice bonus too. Simple but worthwhile. I suspect many of the negative reviews regarding lag or duplicating samples is due to older devices. I've never had a problem. Great app!
