I found another PocketPC Drum Machine. This one has a bit of a twist. Here’s the product’s details:
Drum Kit Ace is a brilliant music & memory game and also an easy to program drum machine!
In the two game modes Memory Master and Rhythm Master use your touch screen stylus to hit the drums and follow the computers lead. Practice drumming in Freestyle mode, complete with metronome to help improve your timing.
The Drum Machine enables you to create up to 99 drum tracks. The interface is simple and intuitive. If you play an instrument (e.g. guitar, bass, keyboard) then why not create a drum track to play along to…for fun, for practice, for real.
Stylish Photo Realistic VGA Graphics
Portrait and Landscape View supported on ALL devices
Multi-Language Support (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish)
I’ve posted on the previous version of BugBand which I thought was already good, this new version takes it much further. I love how innovative this app is in helping to teach notation using many different instruments now.
Adding the Krikit audio engine is also a big step forward. Krikit provides rich sound synthesis and is a big improvement for BugBand. It will be nice to see this in EarTrain as well when it comes along.
Here’s what the miniMusic site has to say about BugBand:
BugBand helps you practice sight reading, letter names of notes, piano, guitar, violin and brass instruments. With a practice level for the complete beginner and ten levels of difficulty, BugBand can help anyone improve their sight reading skills. Great for teaching kids the basics of music, helping students get through music classes at school, or anyone learn to play an instrument. Lots of bugs! Lots of fun!
The new 1.2 version adds: Two new instruments (Violin and Trombone), software synthesis for rich audio and a new “boring mode” so you can play with normal note heads as you would see in real printed music instead of the colorful bugs. Our Krikit Audio Engine (or Krikit Synth) can create rich sound on most modern handheld computers (like the Zire 31, 71, 72, Tungsten T, T2, T3, T5, TX, C, E, E2, Treo 600, 650, 700p, Lifedrive, Tapwave Zodiac, Sony Clie UX40, UX50 or TJ35, and others). Oh, and there is a new golden butterfly!
Here’s a good review I found from around a year ago on Bhajis. Quite interesting.
Another drum machine / sequencer for PocketPC. I have been aware of this one for a while, but haven’t tried it as yet.
I found this by chance, it is a little drum machine for PocketPC. I haven’t tried it out as yet, but it looks fun.
