Ratings and Reviews
It's great for when I can't practice with my percussionist, it keeps me honest. An incredible amount of sounds and rhythms, authentic, extremely useful for me. I use it as a metronome when I'm not practicing Brazilian music. It's always an education for me, going deeper into the vast amount of rhythms in this app. I highly recommend it.
Fun little program
I have had great fun with this app. I've taught myself a few patterns with it and recorded some sweet backing tracks. Now to see if I can make it do odd meters
Unintuitive and expensive
I wanted to like this app as I specialize in Brazilian music but found it difficult to use. Overly complicated and the sounds are not realistic. Not worth the money in my opinion.
