iDrum turns your Mac or PC into a powerful, simple-to-use virtual drum machine. Build patterns with iDrums lightning-fast step sequencer, using included kits or your own samples. From ambient downtempo to bangin hip hop to frenetic drum & bass, iDrums got you covered.
Easy. Fun. Dope.
It doesnt matter if youre a professional beat-maker or if youve never touched a drum machine before. iDrum lets you create drum patterns quickly, either with its top-notch included kits or your own samples. Theres simply no faster way to build a beat on your Mac or PC.
Drum machine newcomers will get to experience the same magical instant-gratification that hooked an entire generation of musicians on the hardware drum machines of yesteryear. Pros will find that iDrum is the perfect way to manage large unwieldy drum sample libraries, get a phat beat going, and get it exported into the format you need (and for less money than a replacement pad for your MPC 3000).
iDrum runs as both a standalone native OS X and Windows application and as a plug-in for Pro Tools, GarageBand, Logic, Ableton Live, SONAR, Cubase and more. This means you can use iDrum to create beats from right within your favorite music software environment, perfectly synced with your arrangement and always right where you left it when you return to your project after your next world tour.
Play that Beat
Dont feel like pushing buttons with your mouse? Prefer to bang on things instead? iDrum has you covered. Use record mode to tap out beats on an attached MIDI keyboard, or even using your QWERTY keyboard!
iDrum comes with hundreds of professional drum samples arranged in nearly two hundred iDrum files, each with several preset patterns programmed by some of the best beatmeisters working today. But these beats are just the beginning‚€”since you can mix and match parts and samples between kits, and even load your own AIFF and WAV drum samples, the possibilities for beat creation are virtually endless. If you ever run through all the drum sounds that come with iDrum (and it will take you a while, believe us), you can drag any AIFF or WAV file of up to 2MB in size into iDrums channel window.
Store up to 99 patterns in a single iDrum file, along with all of the drum sounds you used to make your beat. iDrum makes it simple to create tons of variations on a simple pattern, and then chain them together using Song Mode. Or simply trigger patterns from your favorite host sequencer.
iDrum comes with dozens of part presets‚€”a unique feature that makes it incredibly easy to create amazingly cool beats by simply mixing and matching parts and samples‚€”even if youve never programmed a beat before. You can even add your own parts to iDrums part preset library so you never, ever, ever have to program that syncopated disco hat figure again (you know the one we mean).
