Dragon is a drum machine built to quickly and easily make glitch, distorted, lofi drum beats and manipulate them live. The drums are simple and flexible, capable of some classic drum machine sounds and also new weirdness. Each is synthesized in real time and sent to a multi effect rig with variable speed stutter, bit reduction, pitched feedback delay and a resonant bandpass filter. The drums are triggered by a four pattern step sequencer. Patterns can be changed individually for each drum or triggered together for quick pattern switches for all drums.

Four pattern sequencer with local and global pattern control
BPM control with nudging
Save/load presets
Three drum synths:
Effects rig:
-Asymmetry and tanh (x) for tape like distortion
-Pitched feedback delay
-Retrigger (aka stutter/buffer) with variable speed and reversing
-Bit reduction
-Resonant bandpass filter.

Preset management requires permission for file storage read/write (optional on Android M+)

Unpaid version disables preset saving and audio recording.

Audio recording coming soon. Possible future ports to desktop and ios. Made with Pure Data and libGDX.
