Review
WHOMP is a fun music app for playing wobbles where ever you are. The packs which there are 3 of are well contained and there’s plenty of quality sounds to play with. According to the developer WHOMP is the 3rd release in a so-called Wobble Bass Suite. The other apps include Wobble, Glitch and Drumstep which you can download through the app.

WHOMP has 3 packs to load up: Lethal, Spooky and Junglah. Each pack has 16 wobbles, 4 noises and 4 beats. The background sounds that play in idle mode is for me one of the coolest features and the swish sound when you load up a pack. Fancy! Besides the 3 packs on the main menu page, you can also access the Downloads page for the other apps, instructions on how to use the app and a Share page, although you can’t share anything you may have created.

What you can’t do with this app is save your work to either your iPhone or SoundCloud, etc. There is no Audiobus support either. While these omissions are a bit of a let down, the app remains simple and easy to use. Play on the fly. Show off to your mates.

Is it any good? The packs are great. It is light on features though and maybe of limited appeal. On the whole a great app for playing with. It also hasn’t been updated from version 1, back in September 2011 so it looks like there will be no further updates, no extra packs, etc. For $0.99 it’s still a nice price and strangely still one of the best dubstep apps out there. Go figure!
