Ratings and Reviews
Among the Best
If the developer adds a choice of new drum sample libraries, EQ, and mix/pan to the kits this will be a cut above everything else out there. As it is it is a great add for iOS DAWs like Cubasis. Well done.
I have to amend this review. As of June 2017 editing in DrumSession is a horrible experience on both iPad and iPhone. It is best to stick to using the internal sequences. Moving notes is nearly impossible on an iPhone because you can't see where the note is under your finger, similar for the iPad. If you're not careful every time you try to move the edit screen around you lay down new notes you have to delete.
The recording and editing process is bug riddled with crashes and non-responsive app behavior. The screen remains unnecessarily dark making pad usage and some navigation needlessly difficult unless you want to burn down your battery winding the video all the way up in normal room light.
Maybe it's just too much to demand from an iOS app. So far the market still lacks a serious and user friendly solution.

So almost everything is good but I’m disappointed that velocity is missing from the live pads.
The one thing that keeps this app from being useful to me is the lack of velocity touch sensitivity (while playing the pads) as well as at least a few different samples per drum piece.
I bought iFretless Bass (by this same developer) and am very happy with that, I was assuming they would have used the same technology for velocity on this app.
Anyway, I am hopeful that this app will be updated with velocity and bare minimum multisamples. I will hold onto it for a while just in case and update my review if this is changed.
not the best
really complicated to use and does not allow you to make your own beat you can only edit beats if you have not bought this yet get garage band it’s simpler to use i would like my money back
