This is like the Pulse Controller, but for iDevices!
First off, Beep Street didn't pay me for this five star review, and if anything they are earning their paychecks big time with this app! The people at Beep Street amazes me yet again with another music app! First off there is this other controller for intel Mac (still waiting for the PC version) called Pulse Controller and was amazed by it because it does the same thing this app does except it triggers sound in the DAW. So while I only have a PC I'm waiting, and waiting for that version to come (if it ever does), out of nowhere comes Impaktor! To get right to the review, I was tapping any and everything that was on my TV Tray (highly recommended) 3 cups of water filled at different levels, an empty container, and anything else I can get my hands on! The trick is to adjust the levels to your liking according to the sounds in the preset or creating your own and mangling them to how you want it to play out. For heavy handed hitter like myself, I would recommend going to settings and adjust the input sensitivity to 3 low, or whatever suits you best. I am still in the experimenting stages of this app but can truly honestly say that the description of this music app is worded to a tee and am just having a blast with this beauty! In closing I want to say that Beep Street caught my attention back in November with the Sunrizer music app which was on sale for 99 cents, and while I was looking at the price, I didn't realize I was getting one heck of a synth, and Synthstation 25 compatible at that! With companies like Beep Street that put out awesome quality and innovative music apps, I know that I am getting my $'s worth. Thanks Beep Street and looking forward to updates, and possibly a large sound library just like in Sunrizer, A.M. PS Could it be possible to make this Core MIDI for me to use in part with Midi Bridge to trigger wirelessly in Reason 6? It would be like having the Pulse Controller but in a iDevice

This is awesome! I'm one of those sad individuals for whom drumming is not just a thing to do to pretend to have a talent, but a way of life. This means anything around me is at risk of being thwacked rhythmically. This app brings out the worst in that habit, and to great effect. Tons of great preset sounds, a perfectly intuitive loop recorder, and an elegant interface all work together to bring this funky idea to life. Thanks guys! I can't wait to see what y'all do next!

everlastingly blown away
I rarely write a review but feel compelled to here. For me, this app is perfect for my music composing and I'm amazed at how well thought out it is in terms of sound comlexity. Its much more than I thought it was and love the way it interprets sound through the mic into so many varieties of output. I may never feel the need for another percussion instrument. Thanks so much for such a quality piece of creative sound making software. Just a note that sometimes it doesn't record when I'm recording in solo mode...

I own about 2 iPad pages worth of music apps, and this is one of my new favorites. All my life I've had the (maybe nervous?) habit of finger-drumming on whatever I'm near, so this is definitely fun for me. The responsiveness and sound quality are excellent and I use it to give my iPad songs a more human, less quantized feel.

It's okay, but not worth???
The app is under 4MB. The idea is cool and the app is novel, but the quality in my opinion is not worth. 5$. I am more than certain that ALL the 5-Star reviews were all paid for by the developer to promote his app. 5 Stars is a few too many for this app.

Stop reading reviews and buy this app right NOW.
No ...really. Stop reading this. You are wasting valuable time - time that you COULD be using to amaze yourself with how incredibly great this app is. What? You're still here? Still reading instead of banging out some of the best drum/percussion sounds you have ever heard? Why? Stop reading this and just buy the app. I am not kidding. Life is too short to waste reading me telling you how great Impaktor is when you could be tweaking and fine tuning deep, rich, subtle, bright, musical, powerful, funny or intriguing new percussion timbres and whaking out beats as easily as you tap your fingers on a table. Don't read any more. Just buy it. You will NOT be disappointed.
