"DrumJam" app is designed by award winning international percussionist Pete Lockett and Sonosaurus LLC, the developer of ThumbJam. Pete has been top of his game for decades and has performed with the stars, from Peter Gabriel and Björk to Robert Plant, Dido, Jeff Beck and more. He has also worked extensively in the film industry, arranging & recording all the ethnic percussion for five Bond 007 films.
DrumJam is a direct and personal route to his rhythm factory with all the individual percussion parts recorded by Pete. Build layers from a wide range of authentic ethnic percussion & drum kit loops, then jam away over the top of your creations. With intuitive quantized beats performed by simply dragging your fingers around, it is possible for even the absolute novice to get some funky grooves immediately.
Build up layers of loops with instruments including Agogo bells, Bongos, Cajon, Claps, Congas, Cowbell, Crasher, Shakers, Doira, funk and rock Kick, Hi-hat, and Snare drums, Ghatam, Kanjira, Konnakol, Req, Seeds, Surdu, Tabla, Tambourine, the Dube, Triangle, and Wood.
Solo Over the Top
Create new grooves by soloing with all sorts of ethnic percussion instruments from Tabla and Ghatam, to Djembe, Bongos, Dube and Cajon, and many more. There are also custom solo drum kits from great drummers such as Johnny Rabb, Russ Miller, KJ Sawka, Dave Langguth, Steve Sidelnyk and Scott Pellegrom.
Low-pass filter, pitch bend, delay, reverb, lo-fi, and distortion effects are available for the solo instruments, which really adds a whole new dimension of live performance possibilities.
With multiple save and export options, it is possible to record loops or a whole performance to later import into your DAW or other audio app as 44.1kHz 16-bit WAV files. This is great for studio use and can form the basis of a new song idea very easily.
Trigger with your electronic drum set
Try triggering with your drums from the amazing selection of solo instruments within the app. All the kits and instruments are sampled in great detail, sometimes up to thirty layers deep with velocity.
