App Description

Add professionally recorded drums to your songs with adjustable tempo, intensity, variation, ambience and gain. Arrange these loops into drum songs, then AudioPaste them into compatible apps like FourTrack, or export them to your DAW.

InstantDrummer: Combustion (heavy rock) is part of Discrete Drums' Heavy Mental 2 collection. More InstantDrummer apps are added every month in a variety of styles (hard rock, country, pop rock, world, hip hop and more).

Easy to use, customizable, professionally recorded drum loops in your pocket. Pick a groove, tap in a tempo, and InstantDrummer inspires you to play along with continuously varying drum tracks using perfectly matched, full kit studio drum recordings.

Better than a drum machine! InstantDrummer gives you a professional drummer recorded in a high-end studio by renowned engineers. Sonoma brings these real recordings into the InstantDrummer format, giving you the ability to adjust and build the recordings into drum tracks for your songs. Use them royalty free!

Better than a metronome! Set the tempo and let professional drum recordings keep the beat for you.

Spin the INTENSITY wheel to set the mood from mellow to aggressive. Add some VARIATION to get a constantly evolving beat. AMBIENCE adds room sound and GAIN sets the level. No tedious editing or disappointing sounds, just a great drummer, ready to jam.

Recorded at the Sound Kitchen's Big Boy Studio in Cool Springs, TN, the Southeast's most prestigious recording facility. Many of the biggest names spanning all music genres have recorded here (3 Doors Down, Amy Grant, Alabama, Brooks & Dunn, Bruce Springsteen, Buddy Guy, Chicago, Dixie Chicks, and more).

Drummer, Tony Morra, has worked with Ayeshia Woods, Aja, Amy Grant, Bruce Springsteen and others. "I used my main Drum Workshop [DW] kit, four toms (8"x10", 9"x12", 11"x14" and 13"x16") and a big and punchy 16"x 24" kick. I did use a lot of metal drums, you know, brass shells. Plus an incredible Ochiltree snare I have. On a few tracks I used DW's Edge snare. My grandfather's Slingerland from 1929, and an old '40s Radio King that belonged to my dad. For cymbals I used Paiste 2002's Dimensions. They're bright and cutting, with this incredible "sheen." Paiste 15" "heavy hats."

Engineer, Steve Marcantonio, whose work encompasses classic and edgier Nashville, including projects for George Strait, Alabama, the Warren Brothers and Vince Gill, among others.

Producer, Rick DiFonzo, has worked with Joan Osborn, Roger Waters, Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan and others.
