Impressive all around
The initial set of rhythms and sounds is worth it alone. To add, the sequencer and flexibility of ghost note volume left me in awe. It's difficult to create convincing ghost note patterns with a sequencer, but this app does it quite well. The drummers some patterns are modeled from are a testament to the knowledge of the creator and time spent on this app. I was initially impressed and with more time spent in the app, extremely impressed with the intelligent layout and flexibility of the editor. Well done!
Tremendous Drum App
I have been using it in live performance for the past six months. Definitely a professional quality performance tool. It does continue to improve with new releases which is great. Just wish it would retain settings instead of changing back to default out of box settings each time it is launched. Probably the best IOS drum app available for performance. Syncs well with external looping devices.
Smartest drummer I know!
Lumbeat's apps are the best when it comes to real sounding drums. The ability to control the jam intensity and the excellent sounding samples make this app well worth the price. (I would have paid double!) The developer is also very responsive to support emails and frequently updates the app. Keep the new drum apps coming!!!
