Ratings and Reviews
Amazing app on a lot of levels!
I found this app useful on multiple levels.
Technical drummers working on patterns will find it useful as a tutor to teach a basic pattern by allowing you to slow down the rhythm and isolate various instrument parts to practice. Once a part is learned you can mute instruments or change volume levels and you can take over a part of the rhythm. The app doesn’t limit you like a lot of tutorials with the jam function you can learn where to insert various flair and signature patterns.
It also performs like your own personal drummers and is enjoyable to set your preferences and play them for listening enjoyment.
The song feature helps you learn how the patterns can be interwoven for listening or dancing.
I really can’t express how impressed I am with this application from instruction to entertainment it has been very versatile and scalable based on your preference.
Side note I am listening to a rhythm with 100% swing and jam intensities as background music as I write this review. I have been searching for something like this for years and I am really impressed with this application.
