Touch Drums is an audio application designed specifically for helping you play drums and other instruments on a touch screen or via mouse actions.
The GUI may look a bit overwhelming at a first glance because the program shows multiple audio files in the main window.
Each track is incorporated in a rectangle. The program is developed for being used on touch-capable devices because you can easily activate the target sound. However, you can also control it via your mouse by clicking on the desired audio items.
There’s no support for a help manual but you can decode the settings on your own because they are very intuitive.
Audio playback capabilities
Touch Drums comes packed with several preset audio files and gives you the possibility to add custom items from your computer. It works with WAV file format. A new file can be added by right-clicking on the target rectangle and browsing for a file in your system (the drag-and-drop support is not implemented).
What’s more, you are allowed to upload a custom WAV file that can be played in the background while you can activate different drum sets.
Tests have shown that the program carries out a task quickly and without errors. It is quite friendly with system resources so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
To sum things up, Touch Drums provides a simple and fun software solution for helping you create various sound patterns, and is suitable especially for less experienced users. Professionals may look for something else because this is not an advanced audio mixer. It only offers an interactive way for playing a wide range of drum sets.
