[prMac.com] Tacoma, Washington - Logic Consulting today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Gyro Air Drums 1.1, an update to the ground breaking gyroscope app. Previously the app was limited only to devices with a gyroscope. Now it is available to any iOS device running iOS 4.0 or higher. When loaded on a device without a gyroscope, it is the most fluid touch drum set on the app store. When loaded on an iPhone 4 or a 4th generation iPod touch, it becomes a gyroscope controlled drumstick in the middle of a set of virtual drums. This is in addition to the touch drums. Practically two apps for the price of one.
Gyro Air Drums is a ground breaking music app. It is the first app to offer gyroscope control of a drumstick to beat on a set of virtual drums. With the addition of a set of touch drums, not only does it offer a great value but also compatibility with devices lacking the new gyroscope. A free lite version is also available.
User reviews heavily influenced the modifications made in version 1.1. Users asked for adjustable drum spacing, better snare and bass sounds, and clear indicators for the hi hat and bass drum buttons. We added all these features.
There are now three hit detection modes so that users can choose the one that best works for them. While most users had no problems with the previous method, some did and that was the reason for the update. The two new methods are violence and pass through. The violence method simply detects shakes while aimed at a particular drum. The pass through method detects when the user breaks the horizontal plane of a drum from top to bottom. The original method detects when a user performs a quick down up motion while aimed at a drum.
The drums can also now be spaced at 30, 40, 50, or 60 degree increments.
