Voxkit is a MIDI drum controller with a twist. In addition to touch pads on the screen, you can trigger notes with sound. Clap your hands, tap a pencil on a desk, or use your voice – Voxkit detects the tone of the sound, to trigger a sample from the app, or a MIDI note. Voxkit will distinguish between four different tones at a time!
You can customize the sounds that Voxkit makes – add WAV format samples through iTunes File Sharing, to make the drum kit of your dreams.
Record your playing with the app, and then export the results as a WAV file (with Audio Copy, iTunes File Sharing, or by email). MIDI events are recorded too, with the same sort of export options. With Audio Paste, you can import a song that you’re working on with another app, and then add a track of live drumming.
By listening to external sounds, rather than just the touch on a screen, Voxkit can capture the subtle velocity and rhythm variations of real drumming.
There are hundreds of apps that will let you program drums on a grid – and you wind up with something that sounds stale and mechanical. Break free with Voxkit!
The app is currently in review and will launch with an initial promotional price of just $0.99 USD. We’ll let you know once it becomes available. In the meantime, check out the video below…
