DrumPerfect Pro

Marinus J.G. van de Molengraft
DrumPerfect Pro v.3 is without doubt the most complete, open, fully programable drum/percussion music production system ever created for iPad. The wealth of professional features it offers is just astonishing. Yet its most distinguished quality is probably its confounding capacity to emulate so musically the human feel of pro drummers performances in any genre, as you will see.

Here is what Gilbert Medam, professional composer and arranger, creator of the pack collection as well as designer of the new UI writes:
In the musical consciousness, rhythm is without question a most fundamental element. Combining movement with numbers, it is found in music all around the world and at any period of human history.
Musicians, particularly drummers and percussionists by nature excel in precise body movement, coordination and inevitably inspire listeners to join the dance. On the other hand computer systems excel, by design, in powerful processing of numbers. We are constantly, Marinus and I, attentive to this simple fact when refining and expanding DrumPerfect Pro. Because we want our app to excel in coming as close as it can be, to a perfect integration of both performances.
In this new version, if you are passionate about rhythms, drums and beyond, you will find, we think, the best companion for your music adventure and production. Its flexibility will surprise you. Program on multitrack/layers, multi-velocity sampling, the most intricate patterns, improvising songs. Unleash your wildest experimentation in the creative and fun process.

It is the high end app of choice for:
- drums/percussions professional track production
- live performance with the brand new AUv3 player
- practice and training for musicians in any musical genre
- easy loading and playing of your own library of midi files.
- study, understanding and experimenting from the massive collection of world rhythms available in the packs.

And last but not least, it now comes with two new packs. More detailed than previous ones, they integrate the new functions from this version ( JAM! Dynamics, sample groups, automation, etc.... )
A fantastic General Midi pack to cater for all your midi files plus the new series of patterns all styles included. This pack is FREE to download.
The first brush drums pack, Brazilian Rhythms vol.2 , filled with soft and smooth grooves that will certainly transport you to the golden beaches of Brazil. This pack completes the trilogy of Brazilian Rhythms vol.1 and Batucada vol.1.
