You won't be disappointed


It doesn't have a load of different kits, but what it lacks there it makes up for in sheer number of kit parts, awesome editor, ease of use and great control over each hit including about 10 different hit types. I'm starting to sound like I've been paid hah, but I just love making grooves in this app :). It's just fun and powerful



A fantastic way to learn, tabulate, check, and make notes of songs for when you're on the go.
It is better than other apps trying the same role, and with its control functions you can customise the instruments, time signatures, tab structure.
A recommendation for all play the instrument.

Just when i was about to give up on iOS drum apps...

This one comes along! Its brilliant!
Thanks developers you managed to make an app that puts the rest to shame.
Im learning drums but mainly wanted some thing to sketch a drum beat out on which i could then use with the PC sequencer.

The apps packed full of features wow! timing signatures, decent selection of midi beats, drum tab, actually pretty good samples, its just wanted i was looking for.

Glad you took on board Mr Tingles suggestions ;) and thanks for not busting my pocket with the price, this is really going to help me as a self taught drummer
