Sonoma Wire Works InstantDrummer

Sonoma Wire Works has announced the release of InstantDrummer, a new iPhone application for musicians on-the-go.

Easy to use, customizable drum loops for the iPhone and iPod touch. Pick a groove, tap in a tempo, and InstantDrummer inspires you to play along with continuously varying drum tracks using perfectly matched, full kit studio drum recordings.
