Machinedrum: "It's awesome, a lot of fun to work with and very easy to get something going. I love the sound presets too.“

Funkstörung:"Fantastic sounding, great fun to play with, a must have for live performances!"

Palm Sounds: "I have to say that I've been completely impressed by this iPhone drum machine. In terms of sound, in terms of design, and in terms of functionality. It is amazing."

Keyboards: „An extremely flexible beatbox with tons of character."

CDM: "Finally, Your Pocket Gets a Perfect Drum Synth: Elastic Drums for iPhone."

iOS Music&You: "Highly, highly recommended."

Elastic Drums is a music app showcasing an interactive drum kit, that enables to create a huge range of rhythmic grids, ranging from classical analog drumkits up to experimental soundscapes.
It contains six channels of high quality synthesized drum sounds, a step sequencer and 4 effect channels. All important control parameters are automatable. The result: Elastic drum composition with a unique character!

- 6 synth channels with 12 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone)
- 12 parameters for each synth engine
- automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
- 4 send effect channels with 2x13 mono effects and 2x11 stereo effects
- automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
- master effects (stutter, delay, compressor ...)
- 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it's own tempo multiplier & length
- record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
- email audio recordings and presets
- Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
- Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power. iPhone 4 and iPad1 are NOT recommended!

Elastic Drums is published by MoMinstruments, the instruments app label of Mouse on Mars and friends.

Plans for upcoming versions:
- Midi notes recording
- native screen size for iPhone 6, 6+
- new sequencer features (rolls, etc.)
- new synth engines (other percussions, sampler, etc)

Fantastic fakes Posted by

Great update, any issues I have with this great drum machine are getting ironed out by the steady attention the developer is giving to improving the app. This is my favorite iOS drum machine "synthesizer". It doesn't do samples. Only fake sounds, but the automation in ED makes the sounds come alive, and can make evolving percussion sounds that sampler type drum machines couldn't make, even with samples of synthesized drums. For a couple days I was learning to use the hardware Elektron Machinedrum. I've had such an easier time and better results using this $10 app. One of a short list of iOS music apps that are keepers. Creative, and totally functional, and good stability. Would love to see a way to "link" or "group" patterns together, to be able to work on a 32 step sequence (2 measures of 1/16th notes) without having to run song mode, and also have kit changes and knob tweaks update in the second 16 step pattern when you change them in the first pattern.

Terrific Drum Synth/Sequencer Posted by

Elastic Drums is very accessible yet deceptively powerful. You get 6 instruments and load of presets to get you started. These can be anything from a snare to a kick drum to even a bass note or stab. The interface makes it easy to preview sounds as you tweak them with easy-to-find parameters. You can lay things out in the sequencer, and export wav files to AudioShare, email, etc. But the real fun of this app comes in the effects and automation. You can apply effects to individual instruments, or master effects like freezing and filter sweeps. There's even a pretty useful randomization feature for inspiration. A few key features - including AudioBus and IAA, plus a true iPad version - are missing at launch, but I still give it 5 stars because the features are promised in the near future, and the app is very promising. Similar to SeekBeats in terms of sound design, but I think this one will end up being more accessible.

Exceptionally awesome Posted by

I love a good drum machine app but they all are too infrequent. Lately there have been some worthy new additions. This is one of them. I resisted this for awhile until the app went universal and tried it out. I was not really expecting anything interesting but within minutes made one of the best beats I had produced in a good long while. Finding a good iOS drum synth has been a problem for awhile - the ones with good sound seem to suffer from various user interface clunkiness and the ones that offer smoother interfaces unfortunately just all sound predictable and uninspiring. This one sounded great before even getting to the extremely fun and impressive FX panel, the quality of which is not exceeded in any other mobile app. If this doesn't change your perspective on mobile drum synthesis then nothing so far released will.

Elektron Flavor!! Posted by

Very cool looking UI and even better sound! It is like having a poor man's MachineDrum or MonoMachine from Elektron in my pocket. Elastic Drums gives you six independent drum synths. Each synth can be triggered using a 16 step sequencer. The cool part is that up to 12 parameters (pitch, effects, panning, grain synth effect, etc.) can be adjusted and saved per step in a sequence via automation! The creative potential is inspiring and very deep as a result. Sound quality is really good and it is Audiobus compatible. Moreover, you can chain patterns (with automation in tact) to create entire drum tracks. Just like Elektron stuff the program is a little confusing at first. But like the hardware it is imitating, exploration is generally rewarded with high quality results! Good stuff!

Great experimental drum synth Posted by

Elastic Drums is a great app for a wide range of electronic drum sounds. The app does have its own signature sound, and (at least in my experience) it leans towards edgier and weirder sounds than the classic x0x palette. But that's not a bad thing—if your tastes lie in more aggressive or experimental music, you will love it, and I have no doubt it can be tamed to do other sounds as well, especially with the new sample functionality. With per part sequence length and speed options, recordable step modulation of synthesis parameters and effects, and great global performance controls, there is so much room for variation that this is a wonderfully flexible creative tool.

At first I didn't get it Posted by

The actual drum synthesis takes a little time to learn how to get the sound your after but there are nice presets if that's your thing. Make no mistake, to get the most out of the app you are encouraged to go nuts tweaking everything. A VERY simple drum pattern can come to life by recording automation on as many parameters as you can, adding velocity automation to as many parameters you can. Then you take it to the jam screen and wow. The param button alone can let you jam an entire performance out of one pattern. The app definitely lives up to its name. I only wish there was an app that does all this same stuff just as easily but for melodies and chords.

Unique and Intuitive Posted by

Alot of apps take a while to get your head around. Elastic Drums has an amazingly well laid out and simple interface but with ability to create amazingly complex and layered tracks. The synth engine under this is great and though it is titled as a drum synth, with the effects layers, pitchable sounds and recordable automation of almost every parameter and effects it is capable of basses, melodic sounds and tuned atmospheric sounds as well. Great for deep sounding edm,/idm and even glitchy ambient. The randomizer for sound creation is great and allows you to really tailor your own kits and sound. An amazing app that keeps getting more amazing with every update

Sick sick app Posted by

Man this app had been taking my TIME because the sonic possibilities are quite unique and awesome IMHO! After reading a review referring to this as an "<Elektron> Machinedrum in my pocket" I was already downloading! This thing is completely awesome and just the example patches/beats that come with it show it. Automation of nearly all patch parameters and assignable velocity to get some SWEET sonic results make me -prior to this update- rate this a FREEKIN DOPE DRUM MACHINE APP. I use the heck outta it on my iPad Air and often, when there is a lull in my life, making some sorta rhythmic/beat like/drumish sequences nearly WAYY TO MUCH. get it!

Da B.E.S.T. thing for iOS Posted by

if you put all apps together who claim they are drum machine for iOS they are not as good as this. Period! - because truly allows you to shape your beats and sounds, plus will gives huge add on with all kind of effects. There is some things i would redesign, add or change. If you have all other drum machines in collection do not think you have it all, this is the one you are missing for sure. Very nice update for ipad and iphone. Happy to meet another developer who is thinking and working hard and deliver amazing product...

Brilliant! Posted by

What an excellent app. Feature rich and sounds great. This is a definite "must have" instrument if you own an iPhone. Impressive all around. Interface, sound quality, features... It's hard to ask for more. I love the randomizing functions too. This is a gem, and I've only spent a little time with it so far. It's very easy to get a grasp on it in literally 2 or 3 minutes if you're already familiar with drum machines and drum synthesis. Very well executed. Looking forward to the updates.

Now, with Ableton Link! Posted by

Elastic Drums (ED) will breathe new beats into your music, especially now that it has MIDI and Link support! The randomization of the rhythms and instrumentation is inspiring and fun. The sequencer is a breeze to use and the possibilities are endless! I love that ED is formatted for iPad, as well. The additional real state provides faster real-time results! Hats off to the dev for the quick layout fix, as my iPad 2 is still running on iOS 7. I highly recommend this app!

Great app, last update created some problems with the midi sync Posted by

This is a great app. I highly recommend it. This is one of the best drum machine in the iOS store. Dear author unfortunately the last update screwed up the midi sync. I suggest to revert to the previous version (routine for midi sync). Now the drum machine stop playing for random periods of time when synchronized with external gears.

Previously rated this five stars and still do Posted by

Sample import with this app has been a wonderful addition and previously only using stock samples I was able to get tracks going quicker than any other ios drum app I own, and I own a lot. The effects you can do on the sounds is unparalleled and most importantly this app is just fun to play.

Hidden Gem Posted by

So glad to see the iPad support! A real gem here! Probably the best synth drum machine on ios IMO. There are tons of sample based drum machines on ios but only a handful of synth based apps. You can really dial in your sounds and get creative here. A must-have!

So good it makes the presets annoying Posted by

This by far the best drum machine. It's so easy to make an interesting beat. The downside is all the installed presets. I wish I could remove them. Seriously this is so easy my kids could make something as good as the presets on this. Enjoy

Nice Universal Drum Synth Posted by

Very well designed Drum synth for iOS. Has some important included bits such as IAA and Audiobus support. There is also an option for importing samples .. which makes the app that much more desireable.

Very Deep Posted by

You can get some great beats right away but you can dig into and find more and more possibilities. Listen through a decent sound system. Big bottom! Looking forward to the iPad version.

Great but...... Posted by

......not perfect yet. In-app recording is not straight-forward. Using with Audiobus gets an error. Not ideal on iPad, waiting for Universal-version

Best drum synth app available for iOS.

Incredibly Useful Drum Sequencer. by Joshua D. 2015-05-25

I have really enjoyed this drum beat application a lot so far. I find it great to lay down any beat that is stuck in my head during the day. But, I have also found that it really inspires me to create all sorts of crazy new grooves. Getting to know my way around the application didn't take long at all (though, I did not understand how to use the Velocity function right off the bat.). But, I believe that this drum app is very user-friendly and anyone from a novice to a professional would be able to get acclimated to the application pretty quickly. By default you get a pretty sizable and decent quality selection of Kick, Snare, Clap, HiHat, Cymbal, Wobble, Grain, FM and other preset samples to help construct your beat with I thought. I do hope that the developer of this app will please add new samples in future updates please. As I said, though, I believe the quality of what is already included in the app is actually pretty darn good. One thing that I would please like to see added also is, a way for the user to save their beats please. Maybe this feature already exists? If so, well, I just cannot find where it is. I do really appreciate that the app allows me to record and export my projects to Audioshare (if you don't already have this killer application, I highly recommend that you check it out.). Though, a general "Open In" function would be much appreciated as well please, thank you. So, in conclusion, I just think that this is an easy to use and robust drum application and I highly recommend it to all professional and aspiring musicians. Plus, at this price I find it to be quite the sweet deal. Many thanks to the developer for all of the time and hard work that you no doubt have put into crafting and maintaining this superb application. Thanks again and God bless. iPad Air 2/ iOS 8.3 iPhone 6 Plus/ iOS 8.3

Great App... Really bad on iPad 3! by Galen of the hill people 2016-11-26

This seems like it's probably a really great app. Unfortunately for me it doesn't play well on iPad 3. Playback stutters really badly when you have the preset menu open and sounds choppy like it's out of sync when it's closed. You can hear weird audio glitches when it loops the pattern too. I tried setting the buffer as high at it would go but to no avail. It's just too processor heavy for my iPad. I've heard other complaints about the sampler engine killing performance. I would love to give his a better review but can't because there wasn't much of a warning that performance was going to be so hampered on iPad 3. Hopefully the developer can sort this out. Seems like a cool guy.

The jam feature used to be great but now... by Rreenn2015 2016-08-30

Ever since they decided to put a fancy touch gui on the jam features controls, it went from being the most fun thing about this app to being the most disappointing thing about it. It just doesn't stay in real sync with the drums no matter what settings you put it on and even the drum sequencer despite the recent fix just sounds off to my ears. Your mileage may vary but I'm on the verge of uninstalling. I know the developer must be working very hard on it but something went awry at some point. Also the counter intuitive way that you have to live record, with the sound not being heard until you lift your finger off the pad is ridiculous. This used to be one of my favorite drum apps.

Good but not perfect by 7Z7 2015-12-01

This app has potential to be amazing. There are a few things I find annoying such as a few broken parameters or just completely useless ones that do nothing. For example if you are going to adjust the Kick Release or Snare Noise + parameters, you will just be wasting your time as they are inactive. The developer does put a lot into the app though and is responsive to questions.

First just buggy junk, now incompatible junk! by truthfullybored 2016-11-07

This app always had timing, sync, crashing and playability problems. Now that the company has upgraded and overhauled it, the program needs a stronger processor just to playback samples and my iPad is now incompatible. What a badly programmed joke! Older programs like Samplr run on much less processing needs and smoke this junk. Waste of time and money!

Absolute Garbage! by Shaun Nabíla 2017-03-05

Samples never upload. Requires you to buy additional apps to even do that! requires to actually have a computer to get the in app purchases, which I had to borrow a friends. Don't waste your money! Buy a hardware sampler instead.

A bit confusing by Subimage 2014-12-23

Not sure what the triangle button does next to the record menu. Fx x-y pad doesn't work on iPad mini either. Would like to see these fixed and perhaps a universal version.

Fun but broken with audiobus by Big stuff 1989 2015-02-15

I create a song. Save as preset And try to record it into GarageBand via audiobus song does not playback properly as I programmed it. Broken. Please fix

The latest update messes up sharing with audio share by jenet_christiansen 2015-10-05

I have the current audio share. Your app insists I do not. And will not open audio share. This is a huge error. It needs a fix.
