DrumPerfect Pro has arrived! The new version of DrumPerfect from Marinus J.G. van de Molengraft

1032935528

For me, one of the great aspects of iOS music apps are the great drum apps available. I’ve never owned any physical drum machine hardware, and I am a terrible, terrible drummer. So, having access to such incredible drum apps has allowed me to create tracks that I simply would not be able to do Rock On →

SilQ Equalizer was recently released for iPad, filling the void for equalizer apps on iOS. The developer behind SilQ is TonAppAs, who also brought us the excellent Guitar Capo+ guitar emulation.
