So Much To Love

Even at version 1.0 the greatness of Vatanator outweighs the current bugs: great stock kits which aren't trying to be the most macho but rather a wide palette of vintage / quirky / warm hits. There's also something vintage-yet-fluid about Most of Vatanator: it's just fun to make music with. In a wide world of iOS drum apps (I have close to every one) this one earns it's place and then some and once it's fine-tuned it'll be among my top tier.

Fantastic Drum Machine

Vatanator is perhaps my favorite drum machine on iOS. Unlike crippled apps such as iMaschine 2, Vatanator comes with an amazing price tag, large sample library, and proper MIDI functionality. This makes the purchase of Vatanator practically a no-brainer. If one programmer can single handedly out-do the efforts of a big company like NI we should all be re-defining our expectations of iOS drum machines.
