Ruismaker giveaway – one copy of both of Bram Bos’ iOS AUi plugin drum machines to be won

Download from iTunes App StoreAs I posted a couple of days ago, Bram Bos has just updated both his Ruismaker iOS drum machine apps to include a very clever (and very creative) Euclidean pattern sequencer. Alongside,  PhasemakerTroublemaker and Ripplemaker synth apps , Bram has, over the last 12 months or so, built an impressive catalogue of iOS music apps. All five include AU plugin support and, when used stand-alone, all five now offer excellent phrase-based pattern sequencing.

Given the potential that Audio Units offers, it is perhaps this element of the specification of the Ruismaker/Ruismaker FM apps that will have really got the attention of iOS musicians as much as the spec of the actual drum machines themselves. That said, both do a very good job and, with a suitable AU host and sequencing environment these compact apps are a great sound of synth drum sounds….  and the new sequencer option is brilliant, offering options for all sorts of polyrhythmic madness.

Ruismaker and Ruismaker FM – the two apps have both similar elements and design ethos… but different sound engines…  and both other AU support.

Bram has been kind enough to provide me with a copy of both Ruismaker apps to giveaway to a lucky reader here at 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.

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, August 29th, 2017. Make sure to enter ‘Ruismaker’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future promo code 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 necessary promo code. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to use the code ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

Ruismaker 2.0 now includes a brilliant Euclidean pattern sequencer when used stand-alone.

Obviously, for AU use, Ruismaker and Ruismaker FM, both apps require a suitable variant of iOS (v.9.3 or later is listed), suitable iOS hardware plus a suitable AU host. The apps are, however, universal and, at just 10MB or so, it should be possible to squeeze both of them in almost anywhere.

Both are priced at a very modest UK£4.99/US$4.99. And the new sequencer mode makes using them as stand-alone apps a very attractive proposition; it’s brilliantly implemented and very creative. Hit the App Store download button to find out more….   and get your name in the hat for a chance to pick up a free copy of both apps.
