Patterning is a deep and flexible drum machine unlike any you’ve encountered before. With its elegant circular interface, Patterning transforms the iPad into a seriously inspiring tool for making beats. Most are aware that I am a HUGE fan of Patterning AND also a content developer for the app. My recent kit “Dj Puzzle Funkstep” was announced in this update and I am so happy to be part of it. Olympia Noise Co is a master of crafting ingenuity for the touch screen. Olympia Noise have a consistent track record for producing some of the most useful and interesting apps. Chordion, Ondes, and dot Melody set the bar high and they did not disappoint following up with their latest app Patterning.
What’s New in Version 1.0.4
