Elastic Drums updated – Oliver Greschke’s brilliant iOS drum app gets further tweaks

If you are a regular visitor to the Music App Blog you might well be familiar with Elastic Drums from developer Oliver Greschke and Mouse On Mars. As I mentioned just a couple of weeks ago, 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 … [Read more...]

Elastic Drums updated – Oliver Greschke’s brilliant iOS drum app reaches v.2.0

If you are a regular visitor to the Music App Blog you might well be familiar with Elastic Drums from developer Oliver Greschke and Mouse On Mars. As I mentioned back in October, the app underwent a significant update to v.1.9.  And, while Elastic Drums is still very much about drum synthesis, it you want to complement that with some sample-based sounds - drum or otherwise - you now can; via an inexpensive IAP, you can now add the Sampler Engine feature. We have seen had a number of further … [Read more...]

fluXpad update – MoMinstruments open shop in their left-field take on a sample-based sequencer

I posted a review of WretchUp from the Mouse On Mars development some time ago on the blog but the team have more recently released fluXpad which the MoM team describe as a sample-based sequencer. I did a full review of fluXpad just a few weeks ago.... fluXpad does come with a typical Mom twist however; 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. As shown in the … [Read more...]

fluXpad sale – MoMinstruments take 25% off their left-field take on a sample-based sequencer

I posted a review of WretchUp from the Mouse On Mars development some time ago on the blog. WretchUp is most certainly a bit of a wild ride as an audio processor but, if you like to mangle audio in all sorts of unpredictable ways, and particularly if you like to do that in a performance context, then this is an app that might well appeal. The MoMinstruments team includes Oliver Greschke (of Elastic Drums fame) but, given WretchUp's pedigree, I think we should expect anything under the MoM … [Read more...]

Elastic Drums updated – Oliver Greschke’s brilliant iOS drum app gets sample options

If you are a regular visitor to the Music App Blog you might well be familiar with Elastic Drums from developer Oliver Greschke and Mouse On Mars. Yes, it's quite quirky in use in some ways but, if you like your drums synthesised rather than sample-based, then Elastic Drums is a source of great joy. It is also a pretty deep app and, if you do dig in, then there are some powerful drum synth options - including multiple synthesis engines designed for different drum types - to explore. The app … [Read more...]

fluXpad giveaway results – 5 winners of left-field a sample-based sequencer from MoM

I posted a review of fluXpad - the latest release from the Mouse On Mars team - last week here on the blog. Developed by MoM in collaboration with Jan T.v. Falkenstein, and Oliver Greschke helping out with promotion. MoM 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 screenshots, given the 'drawing' … [Read more...]
