Customer Reviews

Great overall... Except...

This is an amazing app!! The amount of different kits you can use and the amount of effects is great. I'm no pro at making music. But I know enough to say this is good enough for mobile music production.

The only thing missing is 32nd and 64th notes. If there is a way to implement this into songs, I can't figure it out. So if it is already included in the application, a more clear and obvious way to implement it would be nice.
GREAT APP!! Yay for Audiobus!!

One to Own

A great app for composing drums and percussion. The only things that I could ask for from this app is 64th note divisions, for rolls, drags, and flams. Also, the ability to put any kit piece on any "track", for things like three tom tracks, or two snares, or ride, ride bell, and ride edge, instead of being locked into kick on 1, snare on 2, hat on 3, etc.

One of the rare apps with multitrack export!

Still the one....

The best beat machine on iOS. Would like to see midi pattern export in the future. Been using this machine since day 1 and it's ease of use,crisp sounds,and tweakability make this drum computer stand out. They have supported it continuously and keep it fresh and updated. Great app. Great developers. Enjoy.
