Review
One of the best, if not the best, drum machine apps for the iPad. DM1 includes a step sequencer, drum pads, a mixer, FX Trackpads and Song Composer. There are 86 vintage and produced drum kits and sample import function to add more sounds. There are 9 drum pads and a pitch bend ribbon. You can import and export song projects to DropBox, Mail and your iTunes folder. Included as well is WIST to sync more than one iPad or iPhone together, as well as MIDI and AudioBus support.

Overall a great experience. If you’ve used hardware drum machines in the past, this takes it to the next level and the results are staggering. Lots of vintage kits to choose from. This is a stand out app and well worth $5.49 asking price.
