What's New in Version 3.4
Fixed AudioCopy bug.
Bap, bap boom! :-)
Look, let's be honest here. This is a totally simplistic app, it's not meant to do anything super sophisticated, but that said, it's a lot of fun and great practice tool. I love just scrolling through the different grooves and letting em' inspire a groove. Or finding a beat that fits a groove I'm working on. And it all helps with my timing and my tempo. Especially the practice section where the beats drop out for a bit and come back in. That really helps keep my playing honest and my focus sharp. All of the drum tracks sound great either in my headphones or jacked into the aux jack on my guitar amp, or jacked into my home stereo. Even through my iPhone's speakers it sounds good. They really EQ'd the sounds really well to sound great in a variety of situations. A lot of fun. Totally easy and simple to use....
Beats a Regular Click Click Click
This is a great app. I'm an old-school country and western swing guitarist and between the provided beats and the country package I have everything I need for practicing. Metronomes are much better than having something playing the chord progression a lot of the time since you can stop to work on a particular passage or fingering and pick right back up without having to restart or find your place in the chord progression. I wish you could select your own BPM instead of going by the five BPM increments the way the app is set up, and I wish it had more range in terms of tempo's. I would really rated about a 4.8 instead of 5 because of those limitations, but even so a great, great app and a lot of fun to play with.
Wish these were included with my DAW.
These are really great drum tracks, I wish these had been included in my Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)! They are really nice loops and you can just turn them on and let them go, they are so much better than a click track or a metronome to practice with. To get more, I think they are a bit expensive and wish there was an option to purchase all of them for like $10 to $15. To buy them all gets a bit expensive... Still that's no enough to drop the app from 5 Stars, this is just a great app and it works perfectly and is a perfect practice AND performance application!
The more I use this, the more I absolutely love it! It's the best!
