Drum manufacturer Simmons released Simmons Drums Advanced as a way to control their SD2000 electronic drum kit. In addition to controlling which samples are triggered by the drums, you can even record your own samples from the iPhone app! This looks like a great way to rapidly develop a unique drum sample library.
Simmons Drums AdvancedSimmons Drums Advanced is designed to extend the capabilities of the SD2000 electronic drum kit.
Use this app to record real-world sounds with your iPhone or iPad — anytime, anywhere. Later, edit your unique samples and add them to your kit. The result is a nearly a limitless personal library of samples and soundscapes for your SD2000.
You can now remotely edit and save your drum kits and sounds with your iOS device using a very user-friendly interface.
There are also some great tools for improving your playing such as the “Play Along"" function that allows you to choose songs from your iOS's music library and manipulate the playback speed so you can slow down a song to learn the groove.
Users will need to download the latest Firmware update from SimmonsDrums.net and will need an Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter and USB cable to connect the kit drum module to their iOS device.
