"USEFUL and FUN!"
"Thank you for creating Drum Beats+. It is nearly exactly what I was looking for – an easy to use, stereophonic drum machine with a good variety of preset loops (I did not want to have to do a lot of programming), good quality (lifelike) percussion instrument voices, and user selectable tempo. It has added zest and a good deal of fun to my practice sessions. I look forward to using it as a creative tool in my current songwriting endeavors." 5 stars. US Customer, Dave.

WHY IS THIS APP UNIQUE?
Drum Beats+ was created for those who simply need great beats fast without fiddling with machines or waiting on a human. The app store has plenty of drumkit simulator apps, as well as more complex beat-making apps - but for the musicians who just want great beats on-demand, there were no serious options - until now. And unlike other ‘instant drum’ programs or loops, Drum Beats+ has been optimized for ease of use and creative accompaniment.
A VARIETY OF BEATS
Drum Beats+ ships with well over 100 loops created by a professional drummer and offers out of the box accompaniment for almost any types of music imaginable. Expandable packs cover even more ground with more genre variations, niche collections, or lesson specific offerings.
EASY TEMPO CONTROL
One-touch tempo adjustment. Each beat is sampled at the following speeds:
TWO WAYS TO PLAY
1) Tap a beat name to play.
2) Tap the 'Randomizer' to quickly audition random beats. (Great for fresh inspiration!)

Absolute best substitute drummer app!!
This app is not trying to be a full featured drum machine. Instead it is an app to give you pre-programmed drums when you have a drummer fail, and it is GREAT for that. I had a jam party today and all my drummers bailed so I got this and then spent $10 on expansion packs. I was quickly able to dial up great sounding beats for a wide variety of songs! Very cool! My main request for improvement is for tempo control via drag on the main window as I found the tempo window to be inefficient. Great app! Highly recommended! Love the world beats pack too, but could use more African rhythms.
Really good for rhythm and also makes running through your scales a lot more fun instead of having just a metronome clicking at you, each "beat" can be sped up or slowed down in intervals of 5...worth the money!
OK For what it is
Tap tempo doesn't work. It's just a canned loop player, so if that's what you want go for it. It is useful for learning some drumming if you're not a drummer, but there's no adjusting instrument levels or patterns. Works great if this is what you want.
