Patterning : Drum Machine
By Olympia Noise Co.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
App Store Best of 2015, Runner Up : App of the Year.
As beautiful as it is powerful, Patterning is a deep and flexible drum machine unlike any you’ve encountered before. With its elegant circular interface, Patterning transforms the iPad into a seriously inspiring tool for making beats.
Create dynamic drum patterns with the swipe of a finger. Make evolving, poly-metric rhythms, four-on-the-floor dance party jams, or laid back R&B grooves. Use Patterning’s independent loop settings to explore untapped rhythmic possibilities. Automate parameters to create intricate & complex beats. Arrange patterns on the timeline to construct songs. Use the built-in effects--delay, reverb, distortion, and 3-band EQ--to add atmosphere, shimmer and noise. Connect to other apps with Audiobus, Inter-App Audio, and MIDI. Export your beats to perfect audio loops or directly to an Ableton Live Set.
Patterning comes loaded with classic drum machine samples as well as exclusive drum kits created and curated by contemporary producers and musicians. For the independent producer, it’s easy to create custom kits with your own samples.
Supports Ableton Link, MIDI Clock Sync, and Inter-App Audio Sync.
With an extensive and uncommon feature set, Patterning redefines what an iOS drum machine can be.

I would sacrifice my only child for continued use of this app!!
It's true, although I have no child and have no desire to sire a child into this world, I love this app and would sacrifice my only child to have access to it. Fortunately it only costs $9.99 plus tax for use on all my iOS devices, well iPads only. I can load all of my own samples into it, create complex rhythms, add random triggering parameter, make every sound in a different time signature. What is not to love?
Love the new cloud kits
Great update with the user emporium of drum kits. All around this is, hands down, my favorite and most used drum machine app on the ipad. Great sounds, slick interface, always has been stable. The song mode is pleasant to use. Unusually deep MIDI options for the heads with controllers and external gear. Never had to even look at the manual.
