Why I Love DM1

Drum-related apps come (and go) in iOS-ville and there are many amazing ones to be had. After all these years DM1 remains a top-tier go-to for me and here's why: the UI is beautifully clean and clear which keeps the workflow fluid and fast. After a small-if-at-all learning curve your fingers will be flying around the app instead of wrestling with the interface. DM1 also Sounds amazing: the samples and variety of those samples is all fun and fantastic. Lastly: the ability to export individual tracks (iPad version) of a beat = indispensable and completes the package for a fully 5-star app.
