One of the Best Drummer Apps, Period!
If you're like me, an Electric guitar player and not a drummer, then, you have found your drummer, period! This app is so easy to use even a pre school kid can program amazing drums, seriously! This is the EZ drummer in IOS, and at a fraction of what EZ drummer costs on the desktop. This right now is my go to drummer app on the iPad. iPhone version is in the works and I really can't wait for it, it's going to be awesome!
Get this baby going with AUM or Cubasis, or even Auria, Beatmaker, or which ever DAW you love and the latest update by Derek the co developer of this app, is amazing! It starts and stops with the DAWs transport. Right now he's working on getting Ableton LINK which will put this baby over the top!
Did i mention you can export all your stems or separate drum instruments as separate wav files or even separate midi files, and load those puppies into your DAW and mix to your hearts desire!
All in all, this is the app I am so grateful to come to IOS! For non drummers or even drummers, imagine making a complete drum track in your lunch hour at work, how awesome is that! Now you can.
I highly recommend it!
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.
