Drum Loops HD

Hans Eijkenaar (a drummer famous enough to have a lengthy entry on the Dutch Wikipedia) let me know about his new app, Drum Loops HD. It is essentially just a drum loop library, but it is a really well designed library for iOS (Universal). It is even taking advantage of Audio Pasteboard to get the loops into other apps and DAWs. It seems fairly fast to navigate, find, and audition a loop in the style/BPM you want. Then one button sends the whole loop to the pasteboard.

All of the loops are performed by Hans himself, and recorded with two different mic setups. You get a modern and a "vintage" mic arrangement to choose from for every loop. This seems like a great place to start if you hate programming drum patterns, or even just to get the ball rolling with a specific groove style! Here's the intro video with Hans.

Pixietea - I Don't Care Make music

I hate to post old videos, or music videos with lyrics that aren't English, but reader Fritz sent me one that breaks both of these rules and is still worth posting!

Pixietea has been doing mobile music for many years. Not only has she been on YouTube across multiple channels, but she's been on Chinese TV as well. Yet somehow I hadn't heard of her until this morning! I remember seeing one video of her at a press conference playing with Loopy, but the video I'm embedding is something else all together.

Seriously stunning production quality using just an iPad, iPhone, Nintendo DS, and Playstation Portable.

She hasn't been up to much recently, but if you can read Chinese then you might enjoy her Facebook page.

Voxkit Preview

Secret Base Design, makers of Audio MIDI Connect, have released a demo video of the upcoming Voxkit. This looks to be taking on Beepstreet's Impakton, as an audio triggered drum app. It has a lot going on here too, with Audio Copy/Paste, as well as both Core MIDI and DS MIDI WiFi. While it will play its own drum samples, it will be nice to trigger other apps and MIDI sound sources.

Voxkit is in review at Apple and will be available soon for just $1!

Voxkit is designed to trigger drum samples (either internally, or through MIDI), and distinguishes between four different tones at a time.

The app is currently in review in the iTunes store, and should be available shortly. For the release, it'll be priced at $1, and we'll have some promo codes available on our Facebook page.... http://www.facebook.com/SecretBaseDesign

Molten is free, get it while it lasts!

Molten Drum Machine (link to mini-review) has been the drum app I recommend most. It was the first to offer both Audio Copy/Paste (for sample importing) and Virtual MIDI. In fact, as far as I know, it is still the only dedicated groove app that has both of these features. In many ways it felt more like the hardware Electribes than the iElectribe does. One Red Dog has decided to focus attention on the future of Arctic Keys and can no longer support Molten. Before it is removed from iTunes, it has been made available for free this month!

Buy Molten on iTunes: Free

Grab it while you can, and make sure you back it up on iTunes... but please don't bug Peter for support! In memoriam, here is the original trailer released with it back in November 2010.
