Patterning : Drum Machine for iPad & Free Drum Kit Samples

Ryan Baldwin

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of contributing to a very neat project -- Patterning : Drum Machine, developed by Olympia Noise Co. for the iPad. I designed samples for one of the bundled drum kits in the app, called "Extraterrestrial". All of the samples came from recording objects around my home, and then processing them digitally.

As beautiful as it is powerful, Patterning is a deep and flexible drum machine unlike any you’ve encountered before. With its elegant circular interface, Patterning transforms the iPad into a seriously inspiring tool for making beats.

Create dynamic drum patterns with the swipe of a finger. Make evolving, poly-metric rhythms, four-on-the-floor dance party jams, or laid back R&B grooves. Use Patterning’s independent loop settings to explore untapped rhythmic possibilities. Automate parameters to create intricate & complex beats. Arrange patterns on the timeline to construct songs. Use the built-in effects—delay, reverb, distortion, and 3-band EQ—to add atmosphere, shimmer and noise. Connect to other apps with Audiobus, Inter-App Audio, and MIDI.

Patterning comes loaded with classic drum machine samples as well as exclusive drum kits created and curated by contemporary producers and musicians. For the independent producer, it’s easy to create custom kits with your own samples.

With an extensive and uncommon feature set, Patterning redefines what an iOS drum machine can be.

I'm also making the individual drum samples available for download, as hi-res 96kHz/24-bit WAVs, for use in any audio application. They can be obtained from the SoundCloud playlist linked here.
