Yo, Bass drummers! Got a split in your head that you've just got to hear right now? Got a line or a lick or an exercise to put down? Compose it and play along with the new Bass Line Composer App!

Now you’ve got a whole bass drum line to play along with. Practice splits and interp. Write out your exercises or make up new ones. Put down that new street beat that’s been bouncing around your brain. Speed it up, slow it down, try it out, edit it, and max it out!

Compose and play along with the actual bass drum sounds of the Paul Rennick 2012 Santa Clara Vanguard, as recorded by bass tech Brian Lowe - tuned the way they’ll sound on finals night.

Please fix!


I have been using this app for about a year and recently switched phones. I went to restore my purchases because I bought the in-app purchase where I can export through audio files and sheet music. When I went “home” all of my saved work was gone!!! I had so many cool walk on cadences and like drum licks to fill some dead time but there is no way to get all of my work back! This app is great but that one feature just kills and recently I had to delete the app AGAIN because the bass sounds weren’t coming out of my speakers at all only the metronome sound. I killed the app and restarted my phone but nothing changed. Please fix this!

Developer Response

that sucks. we hate to lose our work too. we store all files locally on the device. if you got a new device, you should be able to restore from a back up. we're looking at moving the files to the cloud. regarding the sounds, can you provide us more information?

Please Fix


I have 59 pieces saved on the application. The moment that I launch the application and touch the screen, the application crashes, so I cannot access any of my creations.

Developer Response

oh no! that's not a good situation. we haven't seen any crash reports for this. can you please turn on developer reports and try again?

Dizzzying! Not for me.

The rapid scrolling motion of beats represented as square pieces of "sandpaper" angular icons and measures is a bit too rapid and difficult to read. As it is now, the drab and bulky square icons racing off the page at "Sonic The Hedgehog" speeds make my eyes ping-pong when my eyes leave the interface. For a less straining and nauseating experience I recommend rotating the interface/device 90°. Visually, the "asphalt" glyph icons are not easily discernible, nor compelling to get in a serious head boppin' and creative mood. Hopefully the developers rethink the interface with a little more depth and thought, or options to change it. Overall, the app is interesting but the current price is a bit "spendy" compared to other musical creative apps which offer more remarkable features for a better value. I can't see using this for the long term, but maybe things will evolve and become better suites to my personal liking.
