Midipal app based on Synsonics drum machine?

I have an old Mattel Synsonics drum machine which is really fun for improvising beats. Basically it has 4 sounds, each sound has a button to trigger 1/4 notes, 1/8 notes, and 1/16 notes. See it in action here (fast forward to 1 min): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F323QheU91A
There’s no way to sync to midi clock though, so its pretty difficult to integrate it with modern gear.
I was thinking it would be awesome to have a midipal app that could control a drum module in a similar way to the Synsonics (and also maybe include an option to latch parts and play triplets?)
I realize the midipal already has a drum app, but this would be a bit different.

Good idea! Added to TODO list.


wow great! I used to have one some 10 years ago. I modded it to have trigger inputs. I sounds really great to and the ‘kind of arpeggiated’ drums are very cool indeed!
