DM1 – The Drum Machine for iPad

Google Buzz Will be Phase Out

This has become one of my favorite apps and I’m not really much of a musician.  It’s fun to play with, allows you to do some really cool mixes, and is simple to learn and understand.

DM1 is an advanced drum machine based on the older vintage style in-studio machines that many musicians are familiar with.  It turns your iPad into one of those machines and allows you to utilize different parts of the mixing board to create beats and changes quickly.

It’s got 29 electronic drum kits built-in and graphics that mimic the original machine, so it’s easier to learn.

Although this may not be stuio-ready, for the home recording artist and someone who needs good beats and sounds for practice or other use (or just to play with, for that matter), this is great.  It’s easy to edit and pull together sequences with a drag-and-drop finger-based interface.

Another limitation is that the app can’t import or export samples.  While for most hobbyists, this probably isn’t much of a limit, for a pro or semi-pro, it will be.  Still, it’s not meant for that market.

Overall, DM1 is a lot of fun and very well made.  Whether you play another instrument and need a backdrop or are just interested in playing with mixes and creating mixmaster fun, this Fingerlab app is for you.

Tons of fun, well worth the $5.99, and runs smoothly while being easy to learn.  A great app.
