Ton: Drum Machine by Jérémy Pinat

Jérémy Pinat released Ton: Drum Machine, a free drum app with Ableton Link and Audiobus! This just came out a few minutes ago so there's no demos yet, if one arrives over the weekend I'll plug it into this post.

Ton: Drum Machine iTunes Description:

Ton brings a circular step sequencer and an advanced audio engine to your iPad, enabling you to create rich and modulated rhythmic sequences. Its sound-sculpting capabilities are simple yet incredibly deep and will make even the most basic samples sound unique to your style.

• parameter locks: lock different audio values on sequencer steps to modulate your sequence and making it sound natural and organic
• pitch parameter: tune your drums or create basslines
• saturation effect: add a bit of warmth to any sample, or destroy it completely
• multimode resonant filter: attenuate or boost frequencies
• amplitude envelope: shape the overall silhouatte of the sound
• reverb and delay: glue sounds together, from subtle to stellar
• Ableton Link: synchronize with other apps and devices
• Audiobus: send Ton's output to other compatible apps

"I see a little silhouatte of the sound"

Scaramouch! Scaramouch!!

Looks like it was a nice project for the developer. I'm not inclined to install it without knowing more. Patterning is the obvious comparison, but it's not clear what this thing does rhythmically,

It's a bit of fun, something to fumble around with, on the fly

Amazing stuff! Believe me, I'm the drummer! ;)
Yes, it's simpler than Patterning (no polyrhythms, no way to paste new sounds), but very intuitive yet functional (touch'n'slide parameter control, seamless pattern switching).
And it's free!

I'm enjoying this one. It's very easy to use and get good stuff from. No muss, no fuss. Being free is sweet, but I wouldn't have minded paying something for this one.
