I have spent many hours creating patches on this app, and I love the possibilities this app brings. Audiobus is there to take your playing to other apps. This app os simple and brilliant!

This app is a small miracle. Every time I use it, I'm in awe of how good it is. I tap and beat on my table and it turns into recordable exotic drums, and every nuance comes through with no lag. The presets are terrific; and once I get use to those, I'm looking forward to creating my own. This app broke new ground in showing what the iPad can do. It's the future, now - very stimulating and inspiring; and with Audiobus, I can plug it right into GarageBand.

This works better than I expected, and has excellent sounds. I would love to use it for live performance, BUT it needs a couple of features for that. - MIDI clock out (and in if possible) so users can sync the loop tempo with other hardware - background audio support (so users can switch to other apps for stuff while the audio keeps going) Highly recommended, though.

I've spent $300+ on music apps this past few months. There are some very impressive, rich sounding, and beautifully developed apps in this store. This app however, caused my jaw to unhinge, and plummet down with enough force to break through 2 levels of concrete, ending up in the basement. I had seen this app floating in the store before, and dismissed it as just another silly toy. I was so wrong. 1st: This is no crappy pre-recorded sample player with pads. This is a drum synthesizer, and a RICH SOUNDING ONE at that. I later discovered it's made by the same guys that brought us the Sunrizer Synth, it all made sense then. 2nd: There are no pads or keys, whaaaaaa? (Insert shocked minion here.) You tap or bang whatever surface you want and the microphone picks it up. The best part about this, is that the acoustics and intensity of the sounds you produce when tapping translate directly to expression in the synthesized drums. I have both studio monitor headphones, and audiophile reference headphones. When recorded correctly, I almost can't tell the difference between some of these synthesized instruments, and real ones. This is when I lost my jaw. I miss it very much, eating soup is very awkward now. 3rd: You can tweak the sound. That should be a good enough sentence for my third point but some advanced users may argue that there aren't enough options. While I disagree, I present to you Audiobus, and its popular effects slot, in which you can use other apps to modify the sound 'till your heart's content or you bleed out through your ears. 4th: I don't need a fourth point, I don't have jaw, I'm very much in pain, and you expect too much of me. Just buy the app so we all look alike and the developers can afford my lawsuit.

I was worried about latency before I bought this - there is none. I was also concerned that I would have to be overly careful about where to place the phone while I'm tapping - I don't. This app brings the human feel to the world of iOS percussion instruments, a world teeming with apps that lack velocity control and variable accent control. The sounds it comes with are great but it has enough flexibility for you to make your own. I'm incredibly unique instrument for five bucks - it's a steal. For the people that aren't giving it five stars because they can't use it on stage or find a way to work with its limitations... people just don't use their brain and find ways to work around obstacles. Even the most prestigious studios in the world have limitations. It uses a live sound source as an impulse generator, it's got to be quiet. Duh. If you're having retrigger problems you're probably putting the phone on a surface that is too resonant. If you want to use it on stage get a korg wavedrum. This is exactly what I was looking for to create some ambient tribal experimental electronica and I already know how I'm going to do it. Jam out on the table, hit record, trim and loop in AudioShare or cubasis or BM2 and then find the tempo. If I like the sounds and I want to use them on stage I'll sample them and set velocity layers. Problem solved. It's not that hard people you need to try harder. If it doesn't work on your iPad do it on your iPhone. Problem solved. It's five bucks and it doesn't crash. Five stars.

The app works fine on its own, but it will no longer load into my GarageBand. I’ve a previously recorded Impaktor track that I had created a few months back when it was working fine.

Love this app. Great fun synthesizing drums and making beat sketches on the go. Only thing missing is a multi track export (wav files for each channel). Let me be able to use this stuff better in my big studio setup!

Amazing app that is an incredibly easy way for drummers and non-drummers alike to create beats to be used in recordings or live performance. Audiobus and another app like Loopy HD makes this incredible as a live performance tool.

This app was worth every penny. I’ve only explored it a little but it works SO freaking well. Highly recommended. Do not hesitate.
