iGOG: Massive Drums app review - drum machine

Reviews

Introduction

iGOG: Massive Drums is an awesome music app for iPad that combines virtual drum pads with MIDI sequencing to provide you with just about everything you need to conjure up some raucous beats and export them to your computer for use in other applications.

There are loads of drum machine apps in the Music category of the App Store and I think what often distinguishes them is the quality of the samples, so I’d say that the audio offered in this app is definitely reasonable and would be well worth checking out for non-professional contexts.

Tap Away With VelAUcity

This is a very cool a cool virtual drum machine that features eight customizable drum pads, as well as six pre-defined drum kits with the option to unlock more via in-app purchase if you find the selection to be a little limited.

The drum pads themselves are sensitive to how hard you tap them thanks to the built-in VelAUcity functionality, so this certainly makes for a very cool addition and demonstrates the slightly higher-end nature of this app.

Export as MIDI and MP3

One thing I really like about iGOG: Massive Drums is that you can use the awesome Mic Trigger Mode to trigger drum sounds by tapping on items near your iOS device, and you can make your own custom drum kits by importing .WAV, .AIF, and .GOG files; a potent combination of features if ever there was one!

What’s more, you can export create a final mixdown of your creations before exporting them to your computer via Wi-Fi transfer, and as I mentioned above you’ll find a MIDI sequencer with the option to export your work in .MIDI file format if you prefer.
