Bang A Phone
Depeche Mode meets the iPhone with a new application called iDrum.
It was inevitable that someone would create an iPhone application that would enable users to create beats by tapping on the screen of their handset — but Depeche Mode beats? Believe it or not, the perfectly coiffed new wavers teamed up with iZotope, Inc. and Mute Records to launch iDrum: Depeche Mode Sounds Of The Universe, which allows users to control rhythmic patterns, drum hits, effects, and instrument sounds from the band’s latest album to create instant remixes or new original music on their iPhones. Available for $4.99 at the Apple App Store, the program comes ready with ten customizable kits.
