Customer Reviews

Needs a little work

I recently purchased the $9.99 version and downloaded it to my new MacBook Air only to realize it doesn't have the "swing" beat function the free version use to have. Most all my songs have some sort of swing and now I can't get them to sound in the pocket like I want. Also the app plays the beat but stops visually showing(following) then pads get stuck and don't respond. I have the relaunch the app to start over. I'm hopeful these issues ca be fixed with an update. A few new acoustic kits would be nice for paying customers as a bonus. Thanks.

Awesome drum machine.

A couple more features would put this one up top.
I like the interface. It's easy and looks great.
I like the sounds. Great classic sounds and nice updated kits, as well.
I wish I could importy own sounds, though; or, at least, edit the pitches of the library sounds on a per measure basis. Right now, changing the pitch of a sound in one measure changes it for all measures.
Also, being able to put the beat through at least two effects would be nice. It's not too big a deal, though, if you have the Moog Filtatron or some other effects app.
Finally, the synth sound packs are great, but why are we allowed to have TR-808, 909, and Glitch kits without a TB-303 sound pack? That's just cruel! ;-)
Update: this thing is finally working again. Thank goodness.


The recent update does not work at all. Hopefully they fix it soon. I enjoy this app but now I can't open it. Been using it for 2 years
