RT Music Software has captured the sound of vintage drum machines in VADrum2, a new synthesized drum machine for iOS & macOS wth AUv3 support
One thing right before I get to the topic: big thanks to everyone who supports Synth Anatomy on Patreon and thus makes the iOS coverage possible. Thanks for this. And yes there is a new iOS app. It comes from Ryo Togawa (RT Music Software), the maker of the VAMono Synthesizer and other solid music production apps.
For his new release VADrum2 he was inspired by famous drum machines (TR-808, TR-909…) from the past.
RT Music Software VADrum2
VADrum2 is a new versatile drum machine for iOS (iPhone, iPad, macOS) consisting of 27 different drum voices. The drum generation part includes 23 analog-modeling modules that are inspired by the iconic analog drum machines of the 1980′ (TR-808, 909…). Plus, you get 4 sample playback slots. Then, it comes with an effects section including delay, chorus, flanger, reverb, EQ, and compressor.
The sounds can be triggered manually with drum pads or with a sequencer. The latter allows you to program 16 patterns per clip and you can have up to 16 clips. It also gives you the ability to automate parameters.
VADrum2 runs as either as a standalone drum machine app or AUv3 plugin in your favorite iOS DAW host. The standalone version supports Ableton Link, Bluetooth MIDI, and MIDI In/Out. You can also export your sounds in a linear PCM format (AIFF, WAV, CAF) or in a compressed version (AAC).
At first glance a very extensive drum machine for iOS and macOS with a great sound and a solid UI.
RT Music Software VADrum2 is available now for an introductory price of $9.99 USD until August 31th, 2021 (reg. $14,99). It runs on iPad, iPhone and macOS (M1).
