Playset by Fingerlab

Fingerlab, the developers who brought us DM1 Drum Machine and a fantastic time-lapse app, are getting ready to release a new groovebox! Playset will be shipping with over 50 sample kits for the drum and synth parts. It arrives with AUv3, Audiobus, and Ableton Link.

Playset is available for pre-order at just $4, and will be releasing on December 26th.

Playset App Store Description:

Playset is an intuitive drum and synth sequencer, designed for instant fun and live music.
Start with the drums. Add a sneaky bass line, dress it with a fat lead and you've got your song.
Adjust the mix, light on the FXs, add a few patterns to the timeline and your song is a hit!

Want to connect? Playset supports MIDI, Audiobus, Ableton Link, and is also available as an Audio Unit plug-in.
Finally, once your song is done, you can export it in order to share it with the world.

One more thing: Playset is brought to you by the team behind DM1 (Apple Design Award winner 2012). So if you liked DM1, you’re going to love Playset!

I'm a little torn. On one hand, I love the DM1 for its immediacy, easy of use, and impressive sonic range. I expect this groovebox to be a very fast way of making stuff. There are probably dozens if not hundreds of apps that already do all of this and more (remember Stroke Machine? -- not apples to apples, obviously.) However, I fully expect this app to do it with a clean and snappy user experience.

The other thing I like about the DM1 is the elegant way you string sequences together to make a song.

I won't go into my usual diatribe about how limited things are rhythmically (i.e., fixed tempo, fixed swing resolution, no step rate management, etc.). Obviously, this app is geared to the folks who live in 4/4 land and never travel abroad. It's a lovely little neighborhood, everyone has the same floor plan and drives the same car. That's ok.

ahh... Stroke Machine.. I loved using Stroke Machine much like I did the physical Korg Electribes.

yea, @Tony

Yea, there was something special there, with Stroke Machine. Liked the synth quite a bit, the sequencer had some cool features too. Not super stable for me, and ultimately I moved on, but I may revisit.
