Drum Kit: As seen on TV!

April 17, 2009

Drum Kit: As seen on TV!$1.99 from CrimsonJet, Inc. Drum Kit: As seen on TV!

Download the drum app featured in Apple’s latest iPod Touch TV commercial, billboards, and posters!

Drum Kit will be updated at least once every two weeks with new sounds, themes, and features.

Ever wanted to play the drums? This is the closest you can get without a real kit. This is a fun app for drummers and non-drummers alike. Impress your friends with your chops, or fine tune a beat while away from your kit.

Play along while listening to songs. Simply start playing a song in the iPod app, then launch Drum Kit and play along! You can adjust the song’s volume or Drum Kit’s volume to find the right mix.

“If you are a drummer or constantly tapping on things, you may really enjoy this app” -Ars Technica

* 6 piece kit (4 toms, snare, bass, hi-hat (open and closed), crash, ride, splash)
* Repeated cymbal taps blend in like real cymbals (only app in store that does this)
* Visual feedback when drum head is tapped
* Two volume controls, one for drum sounds, one for your music playing in the background
* Professionally recorded, high quality 16-bit stereo drum sounds
* Play multiple drum heads simultaneously
* Extra long bass drum touch area for double bass (new: slide back and forth for fast double bass)
* Play along with your existing music, add beats or fills
* Optionally play with a friend, one on each side of the kit
* Record tracks, load and edit tracks

* Tap the info button on the bottom right
* Tap the record and play a beat. When you are done tap it again. Give your track a name and save it.
* Tap load to find your tracks.
* Tap play to play a loaded track.
* You can play on top of a track while it’s playing

* You can now slide your fingers across Drum Kit to play rolls. Turn on rolls in Settings and change the BPM (beats per minute) to fine tune your rolls. Try sliding in a circle around toms and snare for instance.

SPL$5.99 from Studio Six Digital SPL

SPL is a professional-grade digital sound level meter (decibel meter) for your iPhone. It includes all of the modes, filters, and features that you would expect from an ANSI or IEC Sound Level Meter. All filters and averaging modes meet or exceed the criteria for ANSI Type 1 or better. SPL is created from the same folks who brought you the Audio Toolbox and ATB Plus.

** ON SALE — Buy now, the price will be going up soon to $7.99.

Graphics — This version has three user-selectable options for the front panel. These include aluminum, dark metal, and plain. The dark metal option, with blue digits, is designed to work best in dark environments. Use aluminum or plain in daylight.

Store Results — We now have provided 9 memory slots for storing results. The dB SPL level, mode, weighting, time, date, and a description are all stored. Also, for non-Leq modes, the max and relative are stored, and for Leq, the Max and Leq time.

The iPhone 3G has the best microphone frequency response. SPL will work on the first generation iPhone, but without the same accuracy. You can also use SPL with our calibrated iPhone measurement mic, see below for details.

If you have an iPod Touch 2nd Generation, SPL will work, but you need to use an external mic, like the headphones / mic that is included with the iPhone.

The screen flips if you turn the phone upside down, so that you can point the built-in mic directly at the sound source.

Modes: Slow, Fast, Impulse, Peak, and Leq.

Filters: A and C weighting, and 10 octave band filters.

Includes a resettable Max field to track the highest reading.

Includes a reference field (except in Leq mode) so that you can set a reference level and do seat-to-seat comparisons.

The SPL meter can be fully calibrated. It comes preset with the calibration for a typical iPhone 3G. Most iPhone model 3G will be within a few dB of this reading. If you have access, even temporarily, to a calibrated sound level meter, just use the calibration field on the flipside to match the meter, and you will be accurately calibrated.

Also, see our other professional-grade audio apps: Speaker Pop, to test speaker polarity, and RTA, a real-time analyzer for the iPhone.

And, we will soon be releasing a calibrated, accurate measurement microphone for the iPhone. This will allow measuring a range from approximately 40 dB SPL to 105 dB SPL. Each mic will include a calibration factor that you will enter into the SPL app for calibrated measurements. This mic will also work with Speaker Pop, our speaker polarity tester, RTA, ETC, and other acoustical measurement apps that we will be releasing soon.

NOTE: I have enabled the “buy for first gen Touch option”, but be advised that you have to arrange your own input via the dock connector. This model does not support the headset mic nor does it have an internal mic.

Coming soon, an iPhone internal mic compensation filter, to cancel out the low-frequency roll-off present in the iPhone.

See our other audio apps: RTA, the 1/3 octave Real TIme Analyzer, LEQ, for recording SPL over time, Speaker Pop, the speaker polarity tester for the iPhone, ETC, an Energy Time Curve and room decay analyzer for iPhone, FFT, for advanced acoustic analysis, and Generator, the full-featured signal generator for iPhone.

Also, if you are looking for a great range of high-quality, professional, audio test equipment, check out http://www.sencore.com. They sell the current versions of the Audio Toolbox, as the SoundPro line of audio test equipment.
