Add professionally recorded drums to your songs with adjustable tempo, intensity, variation, ambience and gain. Arrange these loops into drum songs, then AudioPaste them into compatible apps like FourTrack, or export them to your DAW.

InstantDrummer: Combustion (heavy rock) is part of Discrete Drums' Heavy Mental 2 collection. More InstantDrummer apps are added every month in a variety of styles (hard rock, country, pop rock, world, hip hop and more).

Recorded at the Sound Kitchen's Big Boy Studio in Cool Springs, TN, the Southeast's most prestigious recording facility. Many of the biggest names spanning all music genres have recorded here (3 Doors Down, Amy Grant, Alabama, Brooks & Dunn, Bruce Springsteen, Buddy Guy, Chicago, Dixie Chicks, and more).

Drummer, Tony Morra, has worked with Ayeshia Woods, Aja, Amy Grant, Bruce Springsteen and others. "I used my main Drum Workshop [DW] kit, four toms (8"x10", 9"x12", 11"x14" and 13"x16") and a big and punchy 16"x 24" kick. I did use a lot of metal drums, you know, brass shells. Plus an incredible Ochiltree snare I have. On a few tracks I used DW's Edge snare. My grandfather's Slingerland from 1929, and an old '40s Radio King that belonged to my dad. For cymbals I used Paiste 2002's Dimensions. They're bright and cutting, with this incredible "sheen." Paiste 15" "heavy hats."

Engineer, Steve Marcantonio, whose work encompasses classic and edgier Nashville, including projects for George Strait, Alabama, the Warren Brothers and Vince Gill, among others.

Producer, Rick DiFonzo, has worked with Joan Osborn, Roger Waters, Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan and others.

Great alternative to step sequencing apps / MIDI drums

I own both the Combustion and Heartbreaker apps for the iPhone.

Both excel at what they were designed to do: provide an easy interface to create realistic, natural but good sounding drum parts. They provide real drum tracks played by real drummers, including a variety of styles for different parts of a song (intro, verse, chorus, etc.) as well as variation and adjustable intentisy within any drum part.

If you can count beats in a song (and write down the number of measures) you can create a great sounding drum track in a matter of minutes.

There are really two main alternative approaches. First, you can create your drum tracks beat by beat in a sequencing / sampler app. This gives you more control over the sound, but requires more skill and knowledge of how drummers actually play drums! Second, assuming you are trying to recreate an existing song recording, you can find and import a MIDI drum part. The downside hear is that you are dependent on whoever uploaded the MIDI. Quality can vary.

I also own Sonoma's FourTrack app, and the integration via their AudioCopy/AudioPaste technology is easy and intuitive.

Copying to FourTrack

Works great. Helpful demo videos in the InstantDrummer guide for AudioCopy and effects. Real drum recordings like these sound fantastic, especially when I can arrange them how I want them.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Sleep mode please!

Is there still really no option to keep the beat playing when the ipod goes to sleep!?? COME ON! I've had this program for almost 2 years now and haven't touched it cause everytime I fire it up to jam it just falls asleep while playing, I don't want to make it so the ipod is always unlocked and kill my battery.

PLease please please make it so it doesn't stop playing while it sleeps Ihearit has that option, totally different music app but just saying....
