DrumJam Now Available For iPad, iPhone

Sonosaurus’s DrumJam app is now out for iOS devices, although it will probably see better use on the larger iPad.  Created by percussionist Pete Lockette, it contains a hoard of drums instrument samples from various percussion dialects which ranges from Indian ghatams and Arabic recs – to Latin shakers and pop drums.

What’s particularly innovative about Sonosaurus’s DrumJam is the ability to go from a free-performance style to a sequenced-style, along with anything in between.  The kit contains multiple pre-set groove which can be altered by a randomization button to create unexpected rhythms.  The app also supports powerful time stretching and multi-tempo looping to shake things up even more.  All in all, it will run you less than $4 at the app store.
