I don’t normally put up straight drum playing apps, but this one seems to have a lot more to it.
The app features new ways to play the drums, ten drum kits included, plus you can edit and create new drumsets. The app is force sensitive, so that the harder you tap a drum, the louder it sounds. You can do drum rolls of varying speed by dragging your finger around, and the sound blends smoothly and realistically so you don’t get a machine-gun effect. Cymbal hits blend smoothly together. The drums are animated, responding to user’s touches: cymbals swing, bass drums pulse, hihats bounce.
In Ratatap Drums, you can create your own drums, drumkits, even record your own drum sounds. Pinch and pull to make drums bigger or smaller. Rotate them with multitouch gestures.
Multitrack recording and sharing performances is included, too. We’ve even built a web player that can play the performances made on the iPad, so you can tweet a performance and share it.
The app is priced at $1.99 and there’s a free version available too.
