Beep Street Impaktor drum synthesizer app turns any surface into a playable percussion instrument 14/09/12
Beep Street tells us that Impaktor is a drum synthesizer with a vast sonic palette, that turns any surface into a playable percussion instrument.
You just slap your desk like you would a real drum. The real acoustical impulses from the built-in microphone are used as an excitation source for advanced sound modules that simulate the behavior of membranes, cymbals, metallophones or strings. Beep Street says that this makes Impaktor a highly responsive and expressive instrument.
With semi-modular architecture and several types of synthesis, Impaktor can produce a wide range of tones, from acoustic, like Tabla, Djembe, Marimba, Cymbals, Metal bars to electronic or industrial sounds.
Works with iPhone 4, 4S, iPod Touch 4th gen and all iPads.
The app requires headphones. Works best with headphones without built-in microphone.
