With Boom 808, getting the classic 808 drum sounds into your music has never been easier. Audiobus compatibility, background audio, and audio export options allow Boom 808 to fit into your music without slowing you down. Personalize your beats with the sound of the 808!"

Here's more of what Pulse Code has to say, "Boom 808 provides the superb audio quality found in our other Pulse Code apps. Along with the classic drum sounds, Boom 808 has a built in compressor that is tuned to add punch to your drum beats. Soft saturation overdrive rounds out the signal chain adding warm crunch to your beats.

Using Boom 808 with Audiobus allows you to add any number of Audiobus compatible effects as well as record your beats into the app of your choice. Writing beats is easy by using the internal step sequencer or trigger the drums with CoreMIDI. Control your groove with two swing variations."

Well I WAS having fun for the first ten mins until I held down pattern 1 while it was looping and BOOM – instacrash! Completely wiping the ‘song’ I was working on AND the previous one!!!

10 mins of fun for a dollar, I mean that would buy you about 1/3 of a latte these days so still a bargain.

I got this last night and played with it for about 30 mins without issue. It's pretty great, which I'm sure is why it's #1 in the app store. Delighted I didn't buy it on first release. Hope they do a 909 in a similar fashion.
