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.

Ratings and Reviews
Sounds good, but needs beginners tutorials
Sounds very natural, and though you don't get many - the included kits are good quality.
My main gripe though is the lack of a beginners tutorial - I've got stacks of other drum apps but struggling to work this one out. There's online 'help' and 'quick start' guides, but they only tell you what the menus and buttons do, not how to actually put a song together - which is harder than you might think. This needs a quick start tutorial guide or video, so newbies like me can get up and running.
One of the best
The app has been beautifully designed, and seems to work well in its niche; simulating a human drummer. There are 13 kits included (8 of which have to be loaded before showing up on the bar) and the rest as IAP's. Either, those should be free to existing customers, or the pro version should have been a free upgrade. This is essentially a polished version of the original app, and less innovative that I'd hoped. Patterning is still a lot better, and more intuitive IMHO.
I was already a big fan of the original but this takes it somewhere else. More accessible, but keeping the depth. For realistic drums I think this is unbeatable.
