DrumLab by Audionomy

Pascal Douillard, the renegade that left Fingerlab to bring us DM2, has released DrumLab. This new drum app combines synthesis with samples. This is my own preferred combination, since you can get the best of both worlds packed into a single drum hit.

DrumLab

DRUMLAB brings a new approach to the Drum Machine by allowing you to play with both Samples & Synthesis drum sounds. With a powerful and easy to use graphic editor to create and manipulate sound, it is packed with 76 ready-made samples and synthesis Drum Kits. You can mix and match any sound from any drum kits to any track of your song. Play a song and load any drum kits (from factory kits or from any other songs) to listen to a completely new song every time. What’s in the box :

◊ 7 Sound Engines including a graphical Sampler
◊ 61 Drum Kits including 24 Classic kits
◊ 20 Stereo Effects including 3 Reverbs
◊ Fully Automatable engines, mixer and effects

DRUMLAB is fully automatable and comes with 76 ready made drum kits:

DRUMLAB offers 6 main sections:

1 - THE STEP SEQUENCER takes advantage of the iPad multi-touch screen for fast and creative patterns drawing. The Sequences handles 16 or 32 steps patterns and is polymeric. Each track can have its own length. Just gently tap and drag the blue handle at the right end of each track. Triplets, Duets, Quadriplets steps can also be added for more complex rhythms.

2 - THE DRUMS PAGE is a powerful graphic Audio Engine editor. Parameters are displayed as graph for visual feedback an d easy of use. Play, experiment and discover new sounds. Don’t forget to tap the little magnifying glass on the bar title of each graph, it will expand the graph to a bigger size for extra precision.

3 - THE PADS PAGE simply lets you play and record any beat that tickles your fingers, with automatic quantize so that you don’t miss a beat. With a Beat Repeat effect for extra fun.

4 - THE MIXER PAGE for quick and subtle sound mixing of your drum kits. Large and spacey so that you can get the big picture. Pan and Solo included.

5 - THE FX SECTION offer a powerful Quad Pads Effect processors. You can stack up to 4 effects at the same time and pick amongst a list of 20 available stereo effects. All effects can be either auxiliary or master effects. All effects are automatable.

The GUI's of these instruments (DM-1, DM-2, and now this) are aesthetically nice and functionally easier to use. Especially when compared to the DrumComputer which I think is nice looking and powerful, but is VERY difficult to use/adjust.

I'm not wild about these FM and/or gritty types of tones for drums, but that's just a person preference.

OTOH, that FAC Drumkit thing looks and sounds quite interesting.
the "fm and gritty" is just a demo, its pure data based and flexible enough to make pretty much any style, i think this blows away the fac app - bad timing for them!

Hello All!
My money goes to DrumLab from Audionomy. Sounds great, offers a lot.

Best regards!
I was hoping that IAA-only apps are all staying in a past, five years ago, or so... But new beautiful drum synth, and there’s no AUv3, and it’s iPad only. Why, God, why? A pity. I already have DrumComputer (yes, it’s complex but very versatile), and my AAS’ voice going to FAC Drumkit this time. What a pity.

But... Wait, 4$ only?
I'm super happy with LumBeat's excellent Future Drummer-- very versatile, fun sounds.

I've watched part of Doug Wood's demo of FAC Drumkit and I'm sold. That seems like a great rig.

Still, for $4, it's a pretty safe little bet.
