fluXpad and Elastic Drums giveaway results – 5 winners of the two apps

Download from iTunes App Storefluxpad logo 1I posted news items on both fluxPad and Elastic Drums a week or so ago. The former has had a nice new update while the latter had an IAP drum sample sale going on. Both apps have plenty of offer to the iOS music maker with an interest in electronic music styles.

You can perhaps best describe fluXpad as a sample-based sequencer but where you ‘draw’ your pattern sequences for each sound. Multiple patterns (clips?) can be sequenced within a single project and these then triggered to create a full performance. As shown in the screenshot, given the ‘drawing’ element, the UI can look a little like a child’s sketchbook (!) but, if you check out the video below (and once you have stopped laughing; it’s brilliant), you will soon realise the app is more than capable of creating some cool music.

fluXpad – not your average sequencing environment :-)

In contrast, Elastic Drums provides a very cool iOS drum synth instrument that, via an IAP, can also be used with drum samples. It is one you can really dig into and the drum synth engine sounds excellent. Updates have been regular and the app is already ready for Audiobus 3 when that arrives in a few days time.

Oliver Greschke is involved in the development of both apps and, on the back of the fluxPad update, he was kind enough to supply me with five bundles of fluxPad and Elastic Drums to give away to readers of the Music App Blog.

Elastic Drums – a great combination of drum sounds via synthesis and samples.


The draw closed yesterday and the winning names were pulled out of the hat this afternoon….. and the winners are:-

The winners have now been sent an email with the details of how to get hold of their prizes. Incidentally, if you do appear as a winner in one of these giveaways and you don’t seem to have seen an email from me with the promo code details, then do make sure you check in your junk, trash or spam folders just in case your email system has ‘filed’ the message there :-)

Oh, and if you want to make sure you are entered for all the promo code giveaways that I run through the Music App Blog, then get yourself on the email newsletter list – and pick up your copy of our free ’25 apps’ guide :-)

In technical terms, fluxPad requires iOS8.1 or later, is currently iPad-only, and is a 98MB download. Audiobus, IAA, MIDI sync and Ableton Link are included. The app currently priced at a fairly modest UK£8.99/US$8.99. Elastic Drums is currently UK£11.99/US$11.99 for the base app and is a heck of a lot of software for a very modest price. Anyway, if you didn’t win this time around, check out the original Elastic Drums review and original fluXpad review for full details on the apps, watch the demo videos below, and then hit the download buttons to find out more via the App Store…
