Here is an App that I think I will get that I came across the other day (mainly because it was App of the week) – It is called Werkbench by Bolasol.

Essentially it is a beatbox that is part loop pedal and part drum machine. I think it certainly looks different from the rest and I am told it is both Poweful and user-friendly. It is powerful for the simple reason it has two live-sampling step sequencers. Each step in the sequence holds its own sample that can be recorded and manipulated in real-time.

Following on from my review of the outstanding award-winning Adam A7X monitors, I now have a pair of the massive A77X monitors to put some serious sounds through and test their performance. These speakers were announced at Musikmesse 2011 and round off Adam’s AX series. They still utilises the X-Art Tweeter with the extended frequency response. So why the number 77 you may ask?

Announced at Winter NAMM this year was the Nord Drum which is a Virtual Analog Drum Synthesizer with four inputs for Electronic Drum Pads or Acoustic Drum Triggers. It has been designed to be extremely dynamic and provide a lightning-fast response as if you are playing an acoustic drum. I will be comparing this response to the more expensive Roland TD20 so it will be interesting to see if Nord have achieved this for less than a third of the cost of a Roland TD20 Brain.
