Among the Best
If the developer adds a choice of new drum sample libraries, EQ, and mix/pan to the kits this will be a cut above everything else out there. As it is it is a great add for iOS DAWs like Cubasis. Well done.
I have to amend this review. As of June 2017 editing in DrumSession is a horrible experience on both iPad and iPhone. It is best to stick to using the internal sequences. Moving notes is nearly impossible on an iPhone because you can't see where the note is under your finger, similar for the iPad. If you're not careful every time you try to move the edit screen around you lay down new notes you have to delete.
The recording and editing process is bug riddled with crashes and non-responsive app behavior. The screen remains unnecessarily dark making pad usage and some navigation needlessly difficult unless you want to burn down your battery winding the video all the way up in normal room light.
Maybe it's just too much to demand from an iOS app. So far the market still lacks a serious and user friendly solution.
