Drum and bass fans and producers can now smoothly perform bass lines, percussion loops and soundscapes using Bass Drop Drum and Bass 1.0. It's the ideal Drum and Bass production aid for budding and professional producers wanting to quickly jam ideas, create electronic sounds or perform live. Speedily pick your drum loops and arrange the sample pads to create an arrangement, then perform a lead, pad or bass line with the built in synthesizer.

The app incorporates a keyboard synthesizer with a sound fx and drum loop sampler and loop station. It includes a large range of samples allowing the user to create limitless arrangements and soundscapes. The intuitive user interface facilitates multi-layer sound arrangement whilst offering brisk alteration of sample sounds and quick and easy adjustment of the synthesizer.

Each sample pad provides swift adjustment and full customization of pitch, volume and sample loop durations via the edit menu, as well as a choice of sample sounds including drum loops, percussion, bass sounds, ambiences and special fx. The sound bank can be further expanded via in-app purchase.
The keyboard provides rapid octave shifting, pitch bending and five diverse synths that can be further rendered using the volume envelope adjusters.

The Matrix screen allows the user to swap the keyboard for 12 extra pads and arrange up to 24 touch triggered pads, massively increasing the combination of soundscape arrangements. Each layout can then be saved in up to 3 different banks.
