DrumsLive App


DrumsLive  is a touch and MIDI multisample drum, supporting Audiobus and Inter-App Audio!

It works with your fingers or with the MIDI support, so you can plug your electronic drum or keyboard and play with the sounds of a real drum. To use it in MIDI mode you only need to connect your iPhone or iPod touch with one of the interfaces on the market, such as iRig MIDI.

DrumsLive  has five high-quality kits ready to use (Pop, Jazz, Rock, Electronic and Hang Drum). Each kit contains more than 70 professional samples to make it more real and enhance its dynamics.

Thanks to an advanced sound engine DrumsLive  has zero latency with high quality sounds and over the top performance, that makes it perfectly suitable for live events.

DrumsLive  fully supports background audio, and features a complete mixer, allowing to set the volume for each individual drum or cymbals. You can also set the pan for each piece of your drumset.

You can import a DRM-free song in the app from your iTunes library and play along with it, or create a project from scratch and add tracks to it with an advanced overdub function, use quantization and humanization, and finally export your track in m4a format, send it via email, share it with Dropbox or with all the other compatible apps, thanks to the integrated AudioCopy™ capability, and, last but not least, effortlessly import it to your favorite Audiobus compatible app!

A nice added feature is the stroke counter, that works on MIDI too.

If you are serious about your music, and you want the best drumset out there for your projects or to play live, then DrumsLive  is a must have!
