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 StudioTrack, or export them to your DAW.

InstantDrummer: Earth Beat is first in a series of InstantDrummer iOS apps based on the Discrete Drums Earthbeat 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.
