Platform compatibility???


I was showing a friend this incredible app and jus as I was he was amazed that somthing as simple as a motion sensor in the phones to trigger/engaged the kick drum on the kit, brilliant after all theses years of the same thing with a slightly different name finally somthing truly innovative... as for my questions #1are there plans to release a similar version of the app for android?#2 it's now early December will instrument position be available soon?#3 and lastly can anything be done about being able to differentiate tapping other drums with out triggering the kick drum while still having the necessary sensitivity setting for the whole idea behind this app and what makes the App stand above all other traditional drum sim apps? Thank you and looking forwards to positive future updates🤘
P.s. Fix the kick drum knee from triggering when tapped also let us custom position the drum kit peices and you see 5 star ratings from any true blooded percussionist 🥁🥁🥁

Hi madwrangler, I really appreciate your comments and suggestions. I just released a new update today. You can now customize all drum pieces sounds. You can also mix and match the cymbals positions, sounds and skins. Hope you enjoy it!
Regarding the triggering issue, I am thinking on ways to fix that in the code, it is hard though. It depends on the person, but one way to solve this is to reduce the sensitivity and trigger the kick drum with your heel rather than the front end of your foot. With that the app will know how to differentiate the stronger hit with the heels. Please let me know.
Thanks, ~Paulo



This drum program to me is the most fun, flexible and great sounding as well as versatile programs with many great kits. The kits provided are tuned, live and they sound premium and the ability to adjust the scenario, venue, the tone, by means of adjusting condenser mics by faders and effects for instance- reverb, compression and room size... like a drum isolation booth or an open live room and everything in between... adjust it for your mix... hahahahaha people it’s just fun, and great for live playing with a jam band or recording. I give it high five for the developer who has put so much into it and continues to add for the love of drumming. This would be my choice if for some reason I occasionally couldn’t access my kit and needed to practice and innovate. It satisfies my sweet tooth. It’s a fantastic and authentic and entertaining tool. Thank you for making it happen. I recommend it.

Hi JohnnyStix, I am so glad with your comments, there is a lot of thought and hard work put in every detail within the app, and I am happy you recognize it ;). Many more features coming for PRO users in the coming updates, so stay tuned!
Thanks, ~Paulo

My new favorite drum app!


I’ve probably downloaded every drum app available at one time or another and by far this is the best one I’ve ever experienced. Most drum apps are garbage, RealDrums had pretty much set the bar in my opinion and has been my go to drum app for years, but ever simce this app came out, I have uninstalled all my other drum apps and have poured hours into playing only this one. The 3D drums and cymbals give such a realistic feel when playing. I love the variety of drum skins and different cymbal colors. Very much looking forward to the late November update for this app. I would like to hear some different china cymbals, and come on baby give me a splash cymbal! Keep up the great work, you’ve definitely outdone yourselves, looking forward to more from 3D Drumknee!!

Hi HollowLikeMeDrummer, thank you very much for the comments. Really glad you love the app. I just released a new update today with the custom drum set screen, it is really fun to mix and match the drum sounds! The splash cymbal is back and I am adding more drums/cymbals sounds in the coming update, so stay tuned!
