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

I 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.

fluXpad update – MoMinstruments add some tweaks to their left-field take on a sample-based sequencer

I posted a full review of fluXpad when it was first released and it is perhaps most easily summarised as a sample-based sequencing environment. Of course, at it is from the Mouse On Mars team, fluXpad does come with a typical MoM twist; you  'draw' your pattern sequences for each sound. Multiple patterns (clips?) can be sequenced within a single project and these then triggers to create a full performance.
