Stochastik Drum Machine

Xitive Inc
Stochastik is a full-featured Drum Machine with one outstanding difference. Uniquely, Stochastik lets you set a *probability* that a note will trigger for each step. So, your basic beat can rock steady while accents and syncopation only happen every so often.

Once you add chance into the mix, you can generate thousands of unique variations *automatically* in the time it takes to sequence (one, two or four) bars. It's as easy as programming a static loop but it generates a dynamic track -- no more repetitive beats! Over a thousand of high-quality samples are included, from classic analog drum machines of the past to pristine acoustic jazz and rock kits. You can mix and match samples to create the perfect kit for each song. Plus, you can import your own samples through iTunes File Sharing, email or the Dropbox iPad App.

Stochastik was made to share, so you can collaborate with your friends by emailing or uploading your song, pattern and kit settings.

Stochastik plays well with other apps. When you bounce your pattern to a wav file, it's automatically put in the clipboard for pasting into other apps. With WIST, you can wirelessly sync with other devices. With background audio, you can let Stochastik lay down the beat while you use a synth.
