From Beepstreet comes Impakton …

Impakton turns any surface into a playable percussive instrument. You just slap your desk like a real drum, the transient acoustic signal is fed into the physical modeling engine and turned into the desired sound. That makes Impakton an extremely expressive instrument. Drop a coin on the desk, select any of the membramophones presets and you will hear the sound of the coin dancing on a membrane.


  • Semi modular architecture
  • Physical modeling + frequency modulation + noise shaping synthesis.
  • Multimode filter
  • LFO and input velocity can modulate any parameter
  • 4×4 loop recorder
  • Recording quantization and metronome
  • Reverb, delay, chorus, flanger and phaser effects available on the send bus

The app requires headphones.
The app will be available for iPhone 4,4s and iPad 2,3 devices.

Estimated release date: July 2012
