Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Boom 808 integrates one of the most popular drum machines of the 80’s into the modern mobile producers workflow.

With Boom 808, getting the classic 808 drum sounds into your music has never been easier. Audiobus compatibility, background audio, and audio export options allow Boom 808 to fit into your music without slowing you down.

Personalize your beats with the sound of the 808!

• Step sequencer
• High fidelity audio
• CoreMIDI
• Audiobus and background audio modes
• Record and export live performance to Soundcloud, Audio Copy, email and iTunes file sharing
• Compressor
• Swing
• Overdrive

Boom 808 provides the superb audio quality found in our other Pulse Code apps. Along with the classic drum sounds, Boom 808 has a built in compressor that is tuned to add punch to your drum beats. Soft saturation overdrive rounds out the signal chain adding warm crunch to your beats.

Using Boom 808 with Audiobus allows you to add any number of Audiobus compatible effects as well as record your beats into the app of your choice. Writing beats is easy by using the internal step sequencer or trigger the drums with CoreMIDI. Control your groove with two swing variations.

Beats Consistently Get Deleted

Okay for the price. There's some definite benefits.

I'd give a higher star rating, but my beats consistently get deleted. It's still fun to play with from time to time. I personally prefer the Funkbox app.

I will update the review when my beats stop getting deleted.

Not compatible with the iPhone!

Something this simple should run on the iPhone.

Not bad for a $2 app

Pretty decent for a $2 app, much cheaper than buying any drum machine ( not factoring in the $750.00 my iPad Air 2 cost, lol ) but still, not a bad 808 emulator for the money, the only issue is that the email function isn't working for me. Would be better if we could export to Dropbox, even better if we could export individual parts to Dropbox,but again, I'm not expecting the moo for $2. Maybe for another 2 or 3 I'd expect inter app audio.
