fluXpad and Elastic Drums giveaway – 5 bundles of the two apps to be won

Download from iTunes App Storefluxpad logo 1I posted news items on both fluxPad and Elastic Drums earlier this week. The former has had a nice new update while the latter has 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 has been kind enough to supply me with five bundles of fluxPad and Elastic Drums to give away to readers of 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.

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

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 Tuesday, 28th March, 2017. Make sure to enter ‘flux elastic’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future app 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 for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)

As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the details required to download your free copy. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to download ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

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, 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…  Oh, and get your name in the hat!
