For those of you who want to make music with your iPads, instead of using it just for a glorified calendar – exciting news for you all! Waldorf-Music now has two iPad apps for your creative minds to play with. Nave has been out for awhile now and is on of the great iPad synth apps that really shows off the capabilities of what is possible with mobile music making.
To expand on their iPad offerings, Attack Drums has just been released on June 12, 2015.
The app is currently on sale for $14.99 and will go up to $19.99 on June 26
I like what the iTunes page says about the app –
“Attack Drums is a synthesizer designed mainly for drum sounds, but the powerful sound engine can also be used for everything else – including vocals. Based on the Waldorf Attack VST PlugIn from 2001, it consists of a 24-part sound engine, now packed with a pattern sequencer and a versatile effects section.
One highlight of the effects section is the new Phrase Vocoder, a vocoder that uses written text instead of spoken words. Lyrics in – song out, adjust gender as you have always wanted!
Just like Waldorf Nave, Attack Drums is a seriously in-depth musical instrument – easy and fun to use, but a a sonic beast at its core!”
This app goes beyond simple drum machine programming – the Phrase Vocoder could be an entire unit in an electronic music class! Type in lyrics and this app will sing them! Just for people like me who no one wants to hear sing! Now of course this is going to replace your school choir but it’s sure is going to be a ton of fun!
They have also put in a nifty 24 track mixer that is going to be nice to use! The way in which they designed the sequencer and pattern windows is going to make this part of the app easy to use!
For those of you who want to read the PDF manual they even gave us one!
