sBASSdrum v1.0 Launched February 10, 2014

The first version of the only drum machine to ever be built as a spaceship is now downloadable on the Apple App Store. sBASSdrum (pronounced “space drum”) is a colorful musical instrument that combines both drums and synthesizer sounds together in one interface that requires no setup and curated sound sets to maximize harmony. This demo video shows off the whole suite of features from beat-making, to overdub looping, to the sample-based synthesizer, and finally effects.

The app can be downloaded for free until February 14, and then it will be just $2.99 thereafter.
