Fingerlab DM1 The Drum Machine

Fingerlab has announced the DM1 The Drum Machine, a new advanced drum machine for iPad.

We have been closely monitoring and testing any iPad drum machine since the iPad was released and have decided we could do better, smarter, cooler. Which is why DM1 now takes the multi-touch beat making experience one step further by unifying in one hyperrealistic and beautiful powerful application the smartest tools for beat drumming with the best vintage drum kits. Created for a lot of instant fun.

    Excerpt from web site: We, at Fingerlab, Paris, are proud to announce the release in early July of “DM1 | The Drum Machine”, the new advanced drum machine for iPad. We have been closely monitoring and testing any iPad drum machine since the iPad was released and have decided we could do better, smarter, cooler. Which is why DM1 now takes the multi-touch beat making experience one step further by unifying in one hyperrealistic and beautiful powerful application the smartest tools for beat drumming with the best vintage drum kits. Created for a lot of instant fun.

    Not to be a crank, but it seems (based on the info) they have already painted themselves in a corner with the fact they only speak of vintage drum sounds. This seems to imply old (cliche)analog drums? Don’t know if that represents out-doing everyone else.

    I like Nano-studio which has a test version for PC. I like it better than some DAWS for making quick loops. It even allows you to load your own samples! Don’t know if this DM1 does that?

      They actually say vintage and produced in the features list. Perhaps this means vintage and more up to date custom built kits. In the screenshot I see there’s the TR-808 but no hint of user samples.
      I can imagine they might want to lock it up and sell add-on kits. The option to use your own samples in the app would be great yeah.
