DM2 is a synthesis-based drum machine with a dedicated graphic editor, for the creation and manipulation of sound . Yeah, blah blah blah… let’s start again.

Your lucky stars have all aligned. There are blue skies and smooth sailing ahead. So throw your worries away, and get ready for DM2 to bring endless fun and blissful joy to your face. Your colleagues and friends will be amazed at the new you, wondering how your fingers produce such ravishing beats. Strangers may come up to you in cafés and ask you, “That rhythm sounds like heaven. How do you do that?”. Life can be good, so tap your feet, shake your head and let’s start making some groovy electronic beats with DM2.

DM2 has been made by the core team that brought you DM1, one of the consistent best selling drum machines for iPad, awarded with an Apple Design Award in 2012. If DM1 was cool, DM2 is ice cold. 

Now let’s talk business. DM2 contains 6 pages. Each page does 1 thing. Or perhaps 2.  

A BIG, BIG STEP SEQUENCER. 16 or 32 step patterns. Or why not 7 or 25 steps? Or even polymetric tracks (poly what? no worries, just a fancy word for complex rhythms, yet super easy to make). And while we are at it, steps can also be singles, duplets, triplets or quadruplets for even sophisticated rhythms. Again it is all about drawing funny objects to make funky beats.

THE DRUMS PAGE. Where the sonic magic happens. Six touchable graphs to create sounds. Oscillators, LFOs, filters, noise generators, all the usual suspects in a drawable interface. This may look a tiny bit daunting at first, but the beauty is that whatever you touch, you’re not going to break anything. So give everything a whirl, and get experimental. And if you need some inspiration, DM2 contains plenty of ready-made sounds too.

THE PADS PAGE. Maybe you prefer finger-drumming? Sure, go ahead. Press REC and record your rhythms. Of course, there is an automatic quantize function, so that you’ll never miss a beat again.

THE MIXER PAGE. Big and beautiful, it will transform your iPad into a professional mixing desk for the price of a magazine. 

THE FX SECTION. A powerful Effect processor. Just switch everything on and see where it takes you. 

THE SONG PAGE. Last but not least, put all your hard work in the previous pages together in a shiny song. 

DM2 is fully MIDI-mappable with more than 130 assignable parameters that can be controlled by an external MIDI controller.

Finally, because music makes the people come together and mixes both the bourgeoisie and the rebel, you can export your creations to share with the world. DM2 is packed full of save/import/export abilities. Ahh, the wonder of modern technology!

For anyone interested in immersing themselves in some tech specs, please see below. Otherwise, feel free to stop reading now, grab your copy of DM2, and get jamming. What are you waiting for?

Please add Pitch change to Mixer section


Love it, but please make the mixer section like DM1 so you can change the pitch of the individual steps. Thank you.

32 steps, very nice 👍

Neat analog synth drum machine. Comparable sounds, and much easier to sequence than some expensive hardware units I've used.

Has some very nice refinements and an excellent user interface. Love that it has 32 steps, meaning you can work on two measures of 16th notes onscreen at once, which make for a much less repetitive beats than 16 steps (one measure). A much nicer chunk of time to make music with. Also the option to subdivide a step for rolls and flams is great. The touchable envelopes are great in the synth editor, as is the ability to zoom them bigger. Song mode is nicely layed out too.

I'm sure it would be far from trivial to add, but I would love to have automation, or step sequencing for the synth settings. It sounds so cool to play with the knobs on the synth while it plays, it is the main strength of a synthesizing drum machine over samples, being able to animate the sound as part of the beat.

DM2 = double disappointment

I really wanted to like this app. I took the association with DM1 to mean it was an advancement on the solid DM1 drum machine app. After spending a 5-6 hours working on it today I must say I can't find one single thing that DM2 does better than DM1 and in fact there are several functions at which it pales in comparison. It's a sad state that the developers want to cash in on customer loyalty by releasing a rehashed piece of garbage like this calling it a slightly different name and passing it off as the next release for their customers hard earned dollars. I got DM1 6 years ago and have watched it grow into a better app every release I can only hope that big things are coming for DM2 or I'll feel even more ripped off...

Developer Response

Hi there. Sorry that you feel disappointed. DM1 is a sample-based drum machine, whereas DM2 is synthesis drum machine. Two different approaches, two different ways of creating & working.
