Drum Session giveaway – two copies of universal iOS drum app to be won

Download from iTunes App StoreAs I posted a few days ago, the excellent Drum Session has been updated and is now a universal app, running on iPad and iPhone. The app represents a collaboration between well-known iOS musician Derek Buddemeyer and the Blue Mangoo team (of iFretless fame) and has been known to been in development for some time.

And, if you have followed any of the online discussion around the app, you will have read that EZ Drummer was, in broad terms at least, the sort of ethos behind Drum Session. That’s not to say that Drum Session is an EZ Drummer clone – it is not – but some of the underlying concepts, most particularly in terms of the library of MIDI grooves in a range of different music styles and the ease with which those grooves can be editing and chained together to form a song structure, are similar in nature (if not appearance) to Toontrack’s highly regarded virtual drummer tools.

Drum Session – now available for the iPhone also.

Anyway, Drum Session is now available, requires iOS9.0 or later, is iPad-only at present, offers Audiobus, IAA, MIDI in/out and export options for both MIDI and audio and is currently priced at UK£23.99/US$24.99. However, if you fancy the chance of picking up a copy for free then Hans from Blue Mangoo has been kind enough to provide me with two copies of the app to giveaway here on the Music App Blog.

As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out.

You can enter the draw in one of two ways.

  • First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Monday, April 3rd, 2017. Make sure to enter ‘Drum Session’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future promo code giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered in every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ’25 iOS music apps to get you started’ guide. And if you are already signed up, then consider yourself entered :-)

The piano-roll might be compact on the iPhone, but it is fully-functional.

As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a name at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winner by email and include the necessary promo code. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to use the code ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

Drum Session is already very good indeed and there is considerable promise (and determination from the development team) to be taken further. Feel free to read the original Drum Session review here, check out the demo video of the new update below, and then hit the download button to find out more via the App Store….  Oh, and get your name in the hat :-)
