Soft Drummer is the closest thing to a pro session subtle drummer in your pocket. Easy and fast, it's much more than a drum machine because it can improvise musically with the most pure acoustic drumming sound, played with brushes, hot rods and hands, giving warmest grooves for jazz, soft pop, ballads, latin, etc...

Nice. Superb. Hopefully better UI in the future.
This can be really great for anyone practicing saxophone. Really enjoying the variety of the sounds and various patterns. And it says i can get a soundset if i write a review. One thing is that i wish i have a more intuitive n reliable UI. When in song mode, when i delete all parts, the app will crash n shut down. (Ipad pro 9.7) and i'd like to save my own variations from the existing patterns or sounds combinations, but the save button won't be activated most of the time. Hope these will be fixed in the future. Currently it's the best n only Soft drummer on the market i believe.
Deleted n reinstalled, and i have to rate it again. One another bug that i wish quickly be fixed is in the song mode. First part plays correctly, and the second part and the rest will not play snares at all. Deleted n Reinstalled but didn't change. Hopefully this will be fixed soon~ All other things are great.
Holy Cow!!! (¡Santos Gatos!) Perfect APP!
Tremendous sound! Very intuitive and user-friendly ways (has several modes) to explore and to utilize this wonderful app! The sounds are stellar! I'm a big EZDrummer user.... But that means I have to go back and forth between PC to iPad. But with Soft Drummer, for many projects I'll be able to stay WITHIN my iPad. Cool! Some folks on various forums are requesting audio export.... Plz include this soon!!!! In fact, to be more "Pro" in the options department, it'd be great if you included a 2-track, 4-track and OR a 6-track export function. That is, for those of us that don't always want a STEREO ONLY mix of our drum tracks, we could have 2, 3 or 4 stereo mixes to BOOST kick, compress your great sounding snares and have an OVERHEAD mics stereo track to sweeten just the way we want it.
Keep up the GREAT JOB! GF
Best in class of sound!
I would give it slightly less than 5 stars because of some improvements I'd like to see in the app (customizable crashes in patterns, more advanced song editing features, etc) but I have to give it 5 stars on the unmatched strength of 2 factors: the quality and choice of sounds, and the realism of the jam feature. Another home run! I cannot wait for future updates. No, I'm serious. I cannot wait. I'm using it to record my album now! Thank you, LUMBEAT!
