This app is a very well done drum machine programmed with an enormous amount of rhythms including Batá, Dominican and Puerto Rican rhythms. Highly recommended. I'm a percussionist/drummer and I really like this app to study along with on my main percussive instruments or as a drum machine for practicing piano and bass. Personally though, I don't understand the use of the Puerto Rican flag on the app icon since a good 80% of the rhythms are actually Afro CUBAN. Bomba from Puerto Rico only has 4 presets and I don't even see a plena preset. Merengue and bachata on the other hand has a whole category. I appreciate the Puerto Rican contribution to hispanic American music as much as anyone but in this case if the overwhelming amount of presets on your app are Cuban then use that flag or use a neutral no flag icon.
The genius of Luis Martinez...
...has no limits. I have all but three of his drum apps and I'll likely buy two of them soon. The EDM one just doesn't fit what I'm doing. But I'm sure it's as ingenious as this one.
This app is packed with all kinds of things. Boat loads of samples, train loads of styles, truckloads of options.
You can jam along with the app and it will automatically add fills where you want them. You can create and save rhythms. You can string several different rhythms together to make a song and tell it where to put in fills. You can do odd time signatures. You can do straight beats or really get it swinging for some Afro-Latin Texas shuffle, lol.
Most importantly, even I can use this app with ease. I don't get along well with drum machines because they're a bit too time consuming and I'm just not a drummer. My programming sounds robotic and it takes me an hour and a half to sound that good. With this app (and the others this dev makes) it has enough of a drummers mind that I just have to get the basic pattern going then it'll take it to another level and it happens in minutes.
It's worth every penny. Go ahead and tap "buy".
After messing with other apps, I finally found one that knew there was a rest on the first beat of the son clave (really? yes really). But oh so much more!
This was obviously written by someone who wanted to jam everything he knew about latin and afro cuban rhythms into an app. 👌 I may spend the rest of my life trying to understand it all. But for now, I'm having the time of my life practicing rueda de casino with this wonderful creation.
Thank you señor Martinez!
