Funkbox for iPad – new version

October 20, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The quite nice iPad drum machine, Funbox has after a long time got a well needed update. Funkbox contains all your favorite vintage drum machine sounds in one funky quirky little app! FunkBox has been used by Gorillaz on their album “The Fall”, Joan Osborne (“What If God Was One Of Us”) and Glenn Tilbrook (Squeeze) live in concert, Africa Hi-Tech (Warp Records), and by many other musicians both live and in the studio. It was also featured in Computer Music Magazine’s “Amazing Music Apps” special issue and Electronic Musician magazine’s “Attack of the Killer Apps” best music tools for the iPad.

“We designed the FunkBox drum machine to look, feel, and sound like a classic beatbox from the 70s and 80s. It uses audio samples recorded by us directly from our own personal collection of vintage drum machines. It also features advanced MIDI and audio features that allow you to use it in a music studio alongside your “real” gear. Or just keep it in your pocket to sketch out some dope beats in your spare time.

Here’s what’s new:

  • iOS 6 compatible
  • Retina graphics support for iPad and iPhone 5
  • Five new classic vintage drum machines: DX, Drumulator, TOM, KR55, and RX11
  • New pattern presets, including a bonus bank inspired by classic drum machine presets
  • Support for 3/4 time signature
  • New box and pattern storage menus
  • New improved custom drum box and sample management menu
  • Improved Audio/MIDI settings menu

Really good to see Funk Box get update after what seems like a long time. If you don’t know the app then do take a look as it’ll make a worthy addition to your collection of drum and percussion apps.
