CasioTron Beats: Retro Drums with MIDI
By Rob Wilmot
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
CasioTron Beats re-creates the rhythm patterns found on the vintage home keyboards of the 70's and 80's. These popular keyboards were analogue and have now become collectors items because of their warm sound.
With MIDI too! You can synchronize your analogue casio-tron drum machine to any USB compliant MIDI device or virtual MIDI port.
This particular version takes the analogue drum sounds from the then Casiotone keyboards more specifically this one form the vintage Casiotone MT-70 which although was more modern than the earlier models, it was still analogue as you will be able to tell from the sound which includes the slight noise and hiss as it ducks (this is a genuine replication).
Remember those bossa-nova and samba beats? Well here they are! Relive the retro sound and those cheesy 80s rhythm beats.
so connect to midi just press the new MIDI options button then detect your device and sync.
You can also trigger from MIDI key
What's New in Version 2.30
Fixed issue with older devices (iPhone 4s and iPad Mini 1)
I like the sentiment and design but the loops of the things sound stilted and off rhythm so what's even the point. Waste of a good idea (and two dollars) unless the rhythm is fixed to something steady (how can anyone listen to the high hats and be like "yes this sounds good")
Can't keep rhythm
Don't waste your money until the dev fixes the rhythm issues.
