Ruismaker, the first IOS AU Drum Synthesizer is now available in the Appstore. You must make attention here. If you think, you receive a full drum Synthesizer where you can tweak every sound in detail, is wrong here. Ruismaker is a kind of a Roland TR-8 Drum Machine for your iPad. It’s doesn’t have a lot of parameters but some essentials for tweaking the sound perfectly. The app comes with several drum kits but the sounds are based on full synthesis technology. The app doesn’t use samples but pure synthesis. On the synthesis part, the user doesn’t have access but the developer say to me that a more in detail version of a drum Synthesizer will coming in a later app.

The first drum synthesizer plugin for iOS. Works conveniently inside your sequencer and Audio Unit Instrument hosts so you can focus on making electronic music without app switching and screen juggling like before. 

*IMPORTANT* Audio Units are plug-ins that need a compatible host app to work. Ruismaker has been tested to work beautifully with Steinberg Cubasis, Apple Garageband, Modstep, AUM and MultitrackStudio.
