DrumPerfect Pro, the Human Feel Drummer for iOS!
Here is what Gilbert Medam, composer and arranger, creator of the packs and new UI design wrote:
"Following the steps of his predecessor DrumPerfect, DrumPerfect Pro is now one of the most versatile digital drummers ( on iPad ) I have ever used. My favorite, for sure. What set it apart is the fact that it doesn't sound like a drum machine at all. You have to listen to it to believe. It just sound like a living drummer. An excellent drummer at home in any style, any genre. Groovy and solid.
Technically highly skilled, able to improvise variations with good taste and nuances.
What a groovy companion, for anything from practice to production to performances.

Ratings and Reviews
Update doesn't work on iPad 4
The last update is not compatible with my iPad 4, but the App Store now permanently lists the update. I can no longer use "update all".
1. can set individual beat divisions per-part, per beat— ridiculous rhythmic flexibility.
2. tempo and meter per pattern, and you can scale the tempo at the song level
3. nice selection of sounds, and a very nice convolution reverb
4. flexible/clever implementation of randomize features
1. only two velocity layers for samples (16 slots, soft/loud, L/R, random x4)
2. workflow a little slow; editing and data entry are often clunky
3. not much of a difference between standard version & pro version
I used to be obsessed with this app— because it had the potential to be excellent. The developer was off to such a good start. I'd rather see more velocity layers, rather than round-robins. In fact, it would be best if the 16 slots for a sample could be allocated dynamically as up to 2 hands, up to 4 round robins or up to 8 velocity layers, then you could just pick which way the samples get switched.
But what it does, it does very well. The developer just added MIDI out. Nice!!
The current version supports live MIDI out as a midi sender in Audiobus3.
‘Developer is aware, but refuses to fix’:
Any nagging messages of such kind are not part of the app. We would certainly fix it if it was in our hands.
Perfect once again :)
Very grateful the latest update with the brandnew mixer is now also available for iOS 10.3 and not only for iOS 11. I am sure this will also make a lot of other musicians happy that are not ready yet to make the jump to 11. Lots of thanks to the developer for making this happen. The mixer is a fantastic addition to an already great app. Worthy again of the name Drum Perfect Pro 😎👍
As of October, 4th, DrumPerfect Pro supports iOS10.3 again.
It's one thing for an app to be complicated. It's another thing all together to be so unnecessarily random that it's unusable. To the developing team I say you have a good idea, but bring out a more user friendly update, develop a grid that allows you to see all the events on one screen, and write a single, thorough manual, rather than two small manuals (the manual and the quickstart guide) that provide different pieces to the same puzzle (the actual manual doesn't even cover what the different colored events mean).
