Incredibly simple to use
Drum machine neophytes will get to experience the same magical "instant gratification" fun that hooked an entire generation of musicians on the hardware drum machines of yesteryear. Pros will find that there's simply no faster, easier way to access and manage large unwieldy drum sample libraries, get a beat going, and get it exported into the format you need.
Editing is really simple, too; you can build beats and backing tracks amazingly fast.
Works standalone or as a plug-in
iDrum runs as both a standalone native application and as a Mac or Windows plug-in (RTAS, VST, Audio Units, and MAS formats). This means you can use iDrum to make beats from right within your favorite music software environment, perfectly synced with your arrangement and always right where you left it when you return to your project.
Tap out beats with any keyboard or controller
Don't feel like pushing buttons with your mouse? Prefer to bang on things instead? iDrum has you covered. Use record mode to tap out beats on an attached MIDI keyboard, or even using your Mac's computer keyboard!
Includes hundreds of drum samples
iDrum comes with hundreds of amazing drum samples arranged in nearly two hundred iDrum files, each with several preset patterns programmed by some of the best beatmeisters working today. This amazingly value-packed virtual drum machine features everything from live drum kits to hip-hop and dance-track sounds and much more. But these beats are just the beginning — since you can mix and match parts and samples between kits, and even load your own AIFF and WAV drum samples, the possibilities for beat creation are virtually endless. If you ever run through all the drum sounds that come with iDrum (and that will take you a while, believe us), you can drag any AIFF or WAV file up to 2MB in size into iDrum's channel window.
Use preset parts or make your own
Store up to 99 patterns in one iDrum file, plus all of the drum sounds you used to make your beat. iDrum comes with dozens of part presets — a one-of-a-kind feature that makes it incredibly really simple to make amazingly cool beats by simply mixing and matching parts and samples — even if you've never programmed a beat before. You can even add your own parts to iDrum's part preset library. Want more kits? the iDrum Sound Portal is your gateway to a world of more sounds.
