Drum Pad Machine - Make Beats on Your Mobile Phone or Tablet is a free downloadable app designed for the Android mobile operating system which allows users to make unique and personalized drum beats with their hand held mobile phone or Tablet. No matter where you are and what device you use, drum beats are easy and simple to make with Drum Pad Machine. Drum pad machines usually let you add sounds from MP3s and other music sources such as vocals and guitar, and then lets you produce a beat by scratching and dragging the sounds around on the sound mixer. The sounds are recorded in high quality wav files, so that you can make your own private beat. You can also adjust the volume and pan of each sound and experiment with pitch shifting, bass and treble effects and the like. This means that you will have total control of the end result, helping you build an original, personal beat.
To make sure your Drum Pad Machine is the best fit for you and your needs, you can read user reviews to get an idea of what others think of the software. Most Drum Pad Machine reviews focus on two things, the design of the app and its features. While many users find that the software is easy to use, some say that it is too complicated and user-friendly. For those who are more technologically savvy, there is also a good list of FAQs and Known Issues at the Android website, where most of the known issues are answered. On the other hand, if you need something simple to make your own original beats, the free version is worth a try.
As with any other instrument for example a guitar, you can download individual instruments from the internet to play along with your beats in your mobile device. These instruments include the popular rack-beat, drum looping and percussion libraries. For those who would want to have more options when making their own beats, the official iLove All Samples pack comes as a sample pack and can be used in conjunction with your Drum Pad Machine for a unique experience. With the iLove All Samples pack, you get the standard three samples, along with five extra ones which are available through the inbuilt library of your Drum Pad Machine for a total of ten loops.
