Waldorf Attack on latest iOS?

Anyone know if Waldorf Attack Drums still works on latest iOS, 13.2 (iPad OS)
And/or if it has any issues on 12.9 iPad Pros?

Been on the fence for a while on this one — just about to give in and buy it if it’s still working well.

  • Is there a recent store review and does the app description say it works?

    the latest reviews or comments I’ve seen were around iOS 12 era. I’d assume it’s probably ok, but @ $20, it’s a bit of a gamble for me. I’ve had music apps that were fine in iOS 12 that I’m now having all manner of issues with in iPadOS.

  • Don't know about the Pro's but it's still working as expected on my iPad Air 2, iOS13.2.2

    Opens/loads/works fine on my 12.9/latest etc. Didn't give it an extensive test, but ran up a few songs I haven't touched in ages and was shamed by them that I have not visited in so long etc. I do love Attack, but it is the bookend to Cream Mobile; too brilliant for a schlub like me....

    Thanks man. That’s all the assurance I needed, just now bit. So far so good on 12.9 :)

    I've stayed away from this impressive looking machine because of 'some' first impression bad review. That and I've got seekbeats, modrum, future rock funk mid afro brazilian soft drummer, ruismaker noir reg fm, pulse, digisticks, perfect...

    Let me know if you find anything of note you can't do with others sonically. Or a vid ;)

  • Had a quick go, been a while. Still sounds brilliant :)
    It never felt quite finished to it's full potential particularly with no remote automation (as far as I recall) and obviously no AU. But is definitely still worth the money if you can live with that.

    it’s Waldorf, so top class pedigree there. The desktop VST it’s a port of, is a classic favorite of many big producers from what I’ve read about it in electronic music mags. Probably one of the best early (2001) drum synths on PC.

    As for comparisons to other iOS drum machines — I have most of those (cept only two from Lumbeat collection, Future and Soft Drummer) .. The vocoder voice reminds me a bit of the one in iDS-10, though you can type in much longer phrases in Attack - entire lyric sheets if you want , some of the filters and drive algorithms remind me a little of those in Egoist and Factory.

    seekbeats has always been a favorite of mine due to its versatility and FX mod system, so it’s probably one of the closest pure drum synth to it in terms of sound design potential. Attack stands on its own though, an extremely capable drum synth/melodic groove box. It’s deep and will take a while to learn all its capable of but I’m quite impressed from the hour I’ve spent in it.

    If I had to decide again I would go for its ugly brother, Stroke Machine.
    Full MIDI CC mapping, more reverb and drive options, and an insanely powerful modulation system. I also prefer the more conventional piano roll.

    Yeah Stroke Machine has much better implementation and a similar engine. I used that much more. :)

    i agree with rs2000 and carnbot. stroke machine is deep. i've never used waldorf attack on ios, but there was a time i used it a lot on a laptop. stroke machine can also be used as a module, driven by another sequencer, has
    sample import, and can fm samples with other samples (uncommon feature).

  • Love the thing. I like Stroke machine also but Attack is really really good.

  • Hi,

    I'm working on an update for Waldorf Attack to support AudioBus 3. If you like to try a beta via TestFlight, please PM me your email.

    Cheers!
