Good fun, with some issues. 1: no pattern sequencer is a real downer, 2: didn't see any way to reset the drum settings to default, and 3: the hihat isn't terribly good as a hihat (although you can get some neat sounds out of it). Would be beyond brilliant with a pattern sequencer so you can do more than a single loop/live play.
Awesome app. I absolutely love this thing. First off, it's FREE. Secondly, it sounds great. Sure, it's very limited compared to other music making apps, but what it does do it does amazingly. It is a killer sounding drum synthesizer with a very simple 4/4 16-step sequencer. The main issue users have is the limitation of the sequencer (no variation of time signature, no ability to arrange individual patterns into songs, also no internal resampling- these would all be great to see added in an update....anything is possible, right?) As it is, DMach is a great little sketchpad for ideas. A tip for anyone wanting to expand upon the beats they make with it: I sample my Dmach sounds and sequences into my computer & hardware samplers, which allows me to incorporate what I make in the app into finished songs. It's incredibly useful simply as a drumsynth, a tool for sculpting super gnarly, punchy drum hits. It has a very unique sound all its own.
Very cool, to the point, not much fluff, easy to use...to you other reviewers out there saying "no export to wav?!?" Come on, you guys are musicians and can't come up with a way to record your phones audio?
Very limited It's easy to use, within its limited sheet (4x4 x 6 drums). It cannot be moved to SDcard. I couldn't find out where it saves the sequences (and what file format it uses). There are no export/import options (from/to MIDI file or anything else).
Please bring back the option to export as a sound file. I love you guys this app is awesome! Please oh please let me export my beats! Means so much to me! I beg of you!
This would be the one drum machine app to rule them all, IF it supported time signatures other than the basic 4/8/16. Great work, hope it supports 3/4, 5/8, 11/16, etc, in the future, so I can use it as a practical tool.
