Elastic Drums teaser – Oliver Greschke trails the next update of his brilliant iOS drum app

Download from iTunes App StoreElastic Drums logo 2If you are a regular visitor to the Music App Blog you might well be familiar with Elastic Drums from developer Oliver Greschke and Mouse On Mars. I reviewed the app a few months ago and was very impressed with the sound and feature set of the first release. The app has also had couple of very useful updates since then bringing improved IAA and Audiobus support plus a number of other new features, including, in v.1.5, becoming ‘universal’ and offering graphical layouts that were able to capitalise of the larger screen format offered by the iPad.

Elastic Drums - if you like your drum sounds electronic, then this is  an app to place on your 'most wanted' list.

Oliver obviously has some further new features up his sleeve and in development however and has just released a trailer video for the next update that is due in a few weeks. The key new feature is based around ‘swing’ options and, as shown in the video (embedded below), you can go from a little bit of gentle swing/groove all the way into some seriously weird and messed up beats. Whether you like the conventional or unconventional, therefore, this feature ought to have something to appeal.

We are blessed with some truly excellent electronic drum apps under iOS both in terms of sample-based sounds and synthesis-based sounds. Of the latter, Elastic Drums is most certainly one of the best examples. And, as the app has a current asking price of  UK£7.99 and, given just what is on offer, this is easily classed as a bit of a bargain. Check out the original review for full details on the app but, if you like your drums electronic rather than acoustic, Elastic Drums is an app well worth owning. Highly recommended…
