For the Mac-based home recording studio iDrum, distributed by M-Audio, provides a fully programmable software-based virtual drum machine. Just as easy to use as a hardware drum machine but with all the flexibility of a software-based virtual instrument, the application integrates seamlessly with GarageBand, Logic, Digital Performer, Pro Tools or any other applications that support AudioUnit or RTAS format plug-ins. It will also function as a standalone application.
iDrum features an array of sound-shaping DSP functions like filters, an amplitude envelope and even crunchy old-school drum machine bit-reduction. Any AIFF or WAV sound file up to 2MB in size can be loaded as a drum sample, while the software will also export patterns and songs as AIFF audio, MIDI and GarageBand-compatible AIFF files for further editing.
Also included are hundreds of pre-programmed patterns and rhythms.
