Soft Drummer by Luis Martinez

Luis Martinez has brought us a lot of drum machine apps, including Funk Drummer and Brazilian Drum Machine. His latest app Soft Drummer is a jazzy "subtle drummer" with an emphasis on the sounds you get from playing with brushes and hands. Version 1.0 is Universal and arrives with MIDI, Ableton Link, Audiobus, and Inter-App Audio!

Soft Drummer iTunes Description:

Soft Drummer is the closest thing to a pro session subtle drummer in your pocket. Easy to use and fast, it's much more than a drum machine because it can improvise musically with the most pure acoustic drumming sound, played with brushes, hot rods and hands, giving warmest grooves for jazz, soft pop, ballads, latin, etc...

The new Live Pads lets to play live sessions on the way with 8 assignable pads and buttons for fills, intro, end with midi controls. And now, you can synchronize with any app easily with Ableton Link.

  • 50 multilayer sounds with 3 different hit types (ghost note, accented note and drag / open ) x 3 RoundRobin alternating samples.
  • Improved Jam algorithm with more control to set which instruments can improvise. (iPad)
  • Round Robin alternating samples, combining 3 layer samples of each stroke makes a extremely natural sound.
  • Random generators to get creative ideas instantly.
  • 4 Effects including Compressor/Gate, Equalizer, Delay and Reverb.
  • Song Mode. Extra fast tool to create rhythmic structures for your song in seconds.
  • Ableton Link Audio sync
  • Midi Sync by The Spectacular Sync Engine
  • Control several parameters with midi Control Change and Program Change.
