If 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. As I mentioned just a couple of weeks ago, the app recently underwent a significant update to v.2.0. Having added support for using drum samples (via an IAP) in v.1.9, v.2.0 added Ableton Live Set Export features, re-vamped the sample import process and made further sample-based kits available via the in-app store.
Oliver is, however, one of the more active iOS developers and a further update – v.2.0.1 – arrived on the App Store late yesterday. No, this isn’t as dramatic as the more recent updates but it does bring new support for using high quality Bluetooth audio via suitable headphones when working under iOS10 and the app now offers notifications if you choose to be kept up to date on all the new developments. As ever, there are also a few minor bug-fixes that have been applied under the hood….
Anyway, it’s great to see Oliver keeping up with the development progress…. If you have not yet taken the plunge but are keen to give Elastic Drums a go, for UK£11.99/US$11.99 for the base app it is a heck of a lot of software for a very modest price. Do budget for the Sampler IAP though as this is an excellent addition. Anyway, check out the original review for full details on the app and the video provided by Oliver on the new features introduced in both the v.1.6 and v.1.9 updates… but Elastic Drums is an app well worth owning….
