Elastic Drums updated – Oliver Greschke’s brilliant iOS drum app gets new features – and ON SALE

Download from iTunes App StoreElastic Drums logo 2If you are a regular visitor to the Music App Blog you will be well be familiar with Elastic Drums from developer Oliver Greschke and Mouse On Mars. As I mentioned back in February, 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.2.1.2 – arrived on the App Store late yesterday. The highlight addition is a new IAP sample kit created by Bill Jobs (the creator of the synthQ app). This adds 125 new samples created from synthQ and designed with EDM in mind. The IAP costs just UK£2.99/US$2.99.

Elastic Drums – gradually working its way to ‘classic’ status in the world of iOS music apps.

As with some of the other IAP content, I think you can ‘try before you buy’ as the sounds can be explored without a purchase….  but you cannot save a patch based upon them…. You’ve gotta like a developer who makes these things as easy as possible for his users haven’t you? Oh, and I’ve embedded a couple of demo videos below if you want to hear the sounds in action….

This update brings a further IAP to the Elastic Drums Store…..

That’s not all that’s new though. The update also brings some further refinements to the master EQ section found on the Arrange page. In addition, the audio engine has had some tweaks and this should reduce Elastic Drums CPU demands by about 10%. And, of course, there are a few minor bugfixes applied….

The Master EQ has been refined in this update….

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, then get in there quick; it’s ON SALE. Rather than the usual UK£9.99/US$9.99, it is currently sitting at just UK£4.99/US$4.99 for the base app for the next few days. This 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….  and now you can also add the new Futuristic Synths also if you choose :-)

Anyway, check out the original review for full details on the app and the video provided by Oliver on the new features below…  but Elastic Drums is an app well worth owning…. Hit the App Store download button to find out more.
