Meteor Multitrack Recorder update extends Drum Polyphony

Reader Nuno pointed out that Meteor Multitrack just got a minor update, increasing the polyphony of the drum parts.

I think it is really great that this "Recorder" app includes so many virtual instruments as part of the deal! I haven't played with it yet though. Leave a comment, if you've played with it, and let us know how it is.

Buy Meteor Multitrack Recorder on iTunes: $19.99

Here is a demo from Marcus over at MusicApps.com.br, playing with the virtual instruments. He starts off with the drums being triggered by a MIDI keyboard.

To clarify your post a bit, the basic cost of Meteor is $19.99 and if you wish to add virtual intruments, it's an additional $14.99. I've been reluctant to try Meteor because of the additional cost of the virtual instruments and that I couldn't find any decent videos to give me an idea of the quality. This video has certainly been a great help and it seems it might be worth the money. Thanks!

It is pricey, but the virtual instruments are of very high quality. I could have wished for more stock drum kits, but it's easy enough to make your own. Of course, once you buy Meteor, you'll want to get Aurora Sound Studio, too, as the two integrate so well together thanks to the multitrack pasteboard.

Nah I dunno, maybe if you really want that kind of sequencer (isn't yamahas app in the same categori but half the price?). Meteor supports general pasteboard as well as Sonoma so copy n paste multiple sources isn't a problem. But yea that rendering multiple tracks right into Meteor looks great, wish that would work system wide. :)

I'd like to see them improve the midi editor It's really hard to tell notes that are close apart. And the zoom needs to be both vertical and horizontal. The keyboard for the sampler and synth needs to be improved so it matches the ones in other daws like GarageBand, nanostudio etc. Would also be fun if they would add more synths/instruments. Alot of minor UI improvements here and there that needs to be delt with too.

For me Meteor was pricey but a quality DAW for the iPad with again pricey but quality effects available thru in-app purchases. Then they changed the game with the addition of virtual instruments and a MIDI editor. Minor gripes apart this sounds fantastic and means that Meteor should definitely be considered as a serious studio app.
re Aurora, this does integrate very well with Meteor and again is not cheap but does offer MUCH more features, editing and sound control than Yamaha's Tenori.
Keep up the good work 4pockets.
