This is the super-villain of drum synths. Arkham Asylum has a space reserved for Noir



All parameters are available for realtime manipulation; jamming with a drum synth was never this much fun

A different kind of drumsynth. Ruismaker Noir presents a hybrid approach between synthesized drums and rhythmic bass sounds – coming together in the fully integrated step sequencer. Throw in a nasty, dirty personality and you get something really new for the iOS platform.

Although Noir has a monophonic synthesis engine, the clever interplay with the sequencer and plethora of pitch/velocity modulation options can make it sound like many different sounds are playing, seamlessly blending into each other.
