Runs in the background


Drains the battery when the phone is inactive at night.

I wanted to like this app but since installing a fully charged battery before going to bed is at 50% in the morning. The Battery settings show this app as the largest user.

Developer Response

Hi and thanks for the feedback. The app keeps running in the background to be played with other apps; anyway since nowadays there are many options (Audiobus, AUM...) to connect apps, I will remove this behaviour or make it optional.

Not worth the money.


App would be decent if there were a selection of different kicks, snares, etc. or the ability to modulate the instruments, but lacking both of those options makes this app pretty much worthless on the musician level.

Nice app - needs a little work


The touch mapping is way off with some of the knobs.
