Customer Reviews

Solid drum machine with a few flaws

This is pretty solid drum machine that offers good compatability options (AudioBus, Copy/Paste) and a nice variety of sounds. It has 10 kits right out of the box, and about 7 of them are acoustic kits that you could use for rock. It also has a reasonable file size of only 25 MB, and is very reasonably priced for that content. The only complaint I have, and the thing that holds me back from using it more, is that it seems to run slowly and take awhile to load the kits. There's also some latency when using the pads, though you could bypass this by programming a pattern. I give it 4 stars for now because the value and options really are great, but if it doesn't run well enough to get the timing right, that's a problem for rhythm-based app.

A great and easy to use beat box!

Still the best beat box in the App Store.

This is rapidly becoming the best drum machine in the app store! The first update is already headed in the right direction. I cant wait for copy/paste. I just loaded a large chunk of my sample library into this and am having a blast! Recommended highly!

Rocks on 5s!

First download kits were there then disappeared. Uninstall and reinstall fixed the problem. One of the better drum machines. Killer for the price.
