CDM: "Finally, Your Pocket Gets a Perfect Drum Synth: Elastic Drums for iPhone."

iOS Music&You: "Highly, highly recommended."

Elastic Drums is a music app showcasing an interactive drum kit, that enables to create a huge range of rhythmic grids, ranging from classical analog drumkits up to experimental soundscapes.
It contains six channels of high quality synthesized drum sounds, a step sequencer and 4 effect channels. All important control parameters are automatable. The result: Elastic drum composition with a unique character!

- 6 synth channels with 13 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone, sampler)
- 12 parameters for each synth engine
- automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
- 4 send effect channels with 2x13 mono effects and 2x11 stereo effects
- automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
- master effects (stutter, delay, compressor ...)
- 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it's own tempo multiplier & length
- record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
- email audio recordings and presets
- Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
- Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power. iPhone 4 and iPad1 are NOT recommended!

Elastic Drums is published by MoMinstruments, the instruments app label of Mouse on Mars and friends.

Quelle évolution !

J’ai connu cette application il y a plus de 2 ans. Je l’avais testé sur iPad Air. L’app était encore incomplète, expérimentale, et gourmande en ressources. J’ai préféré annuler mon achat. Me revoilà quelques années après et l’appli est désormais une belle réussite. Installée sur mon iPhone 6 et... sur l’iPad 2 (!) ou l’appli tourne presque sans ralentissement, c’est un exploit ! Bravo aux développeurs !

Sync problem

ED is impossible to sync to external gear and/or with other apps. I can’t sync it in AUM and run (trigger) the clock externally.
It refuses being slaved to external clock from other apps. Start/Stop. How complicated is that?
Waste of money.

Developer Response ,

Elastic Drums works in sync with AUM with IAA sync and Ableton Link sync. Maybe you choosed the wrong sync option. We recommend switch off Ableton Link to make it sync via IAA

Super son/retour de la synchro midi please

Appli au top son , mais la syncro midi simple (hors IAA) ne marche.
