EG Pulse Could Be The Ultimate Drum Machine For iOS

So you want a full-featured drum machine for your iOS device that feels more pro desktop than lite mobile toy? Then EG Pulse should be on your list for new music apps to check out immediately!  

EG Pulse for iPad and iPhone can be used both in standalone or hosted as AudioUnit AU3 inside apps like GarageBand, AUM, BeatMaker3, NanoStudio2, n-Track9 and others.

The solid ElliottGarage sequencing engine has been updated and expanded, and you can now create ultra precise trap rhythms, hip hop grooves, electronic beats, rock and acoustic drum tracks and more.

EG Pulse comes with more than 40 drumkits and more than 180 grooves already included to cover many different genres from EDM, House, Trap, Hip Hop and Electronic Music to Rock, Metal, Reggae or Jazz; moreover, you can create your custom drumkit importing samples with simple drag & drop, and you can modify them inside the app with the sample editor (sample start, attack time, release time and sample length).

Each of the 16 pads can be also pitched and panned in the mixer section of the app and also reverb, delay and eq can be set individually. Each pattern can be automated to obtain dynamic changes and with the probability mode you can create always new grooves adding randomization and human feel to them.
