Drumming is only the beginning of what Different Drummer does.

“Your app is not a drum machine, it’s a music machine.”

This really is very good and nothing like ANY other app to date. Superb :-)

Different Drummer is your secret weapon in the quest for innovative beats and music that make sense yet defy the status quo. Using patent pending Cyclophone Technology, Different Drummer taps into the primal source of all rhythm—waves. Different Drummer puts out multi-track music which is lifelike or primal at times and out of this world at others. It's not a drum synthesizer but a music synthesizer that uses waves to play any sound in amazing ways that vary from electro to dubstep to tribal to classical. Check us on to hear.

This software was created with music in mind—but in the spirit of discovering what is next in music, not just finding a new way to do the same thing like so many music apps do so well. If you are a pioneer or care about where music is going, this app is for you.

Yet another happy customer's perspective:

“I just wanted to add that this is the most inspiring drum creation app by far. I don't think I'll be able to go back to a normal drum machine after this. It is just so easy to come up with really interesting parts with rhythms that I haven't been able to achieve before…”

Create dynamic drum parts, saving hours of tedious pattern and loop creation. Drums created with DD are pretty much assured to be copyright free and unique!

It only takes a few minutes before you realize how easy it is to manipulate touch-enabled rhythm waves. Adjust note, rest, tie, panning and dynamics waves for ultimate range of expression.

The possibilities are truly endless. Different Drummer makes a whole lot more of the possibilities easier than ever to access.

Awesome app

Amazingly creative app with realtime updating. I ask the developer to update a feature and they responded by a adding to their next update. One of the best iOS apps for drumming easily.

Most used app in the toolbox

I have plenty of music apps...synths, DAWs, sequencers, beat boxes, effects, drum name it, but Different Drummer has been the most used of all of them.
