☆ Ratatap Drums is the most powerful, playable, and realistic drum kit app out there. Period. ☆

The harder you hit the drums, the louder they sound. Swirl your finger around for slower or faster rolls. The drum sound varies slightly from hit to hit, just like real drums.

Oh--and you can make your own drumsets. No more nickle and diming users for new kits! Choose from one of the ten (10!) included kits or create your own, choosing from the hundreds of included sounds.

☆ 13 built-in kits -- Rock, Disco, Hip-Hop, Electronic, and more!
☆ The harder you hit the drums, the louder they sound! A first for an iPhone app!
☆ Hundreds of drum sounds, professionally recorded at 44.1khz high fidelity!
☆ Natural drum rolling -- the faster you drag your finger, the faster the roll!
☆ Realistic modeling of drum strikes so cymbals blend and snares don't sound like machine guns!
☆ Pitch bending depending on where you hit the drums!
☆ Multitrack recording and online sharing!
☆ You can even share your performances online on the web! Tweet, tweet!
☆ Jam out with your iPod library tracks.
☆ Try our "Dueling Drumsets" so two people can rock out with their own set on one device!

Sound is good, but UX and features put it way out front

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Best drum app on the store, as long as the sound isn't the most important metric. Customizability, iPod integration, drum set engineering including type, size, volume, pitch... and then saving the drumset, sound tweaking, and special effects/animation put this application so far out in front that it could have been a fart drum app and still have been good.

Some of stock sets sound a little tinny, more specifically the bass drums. The app claims the output volume is in direct proportion to how hard you tap the skin....and delivers.....sometimes. Also, could have included a strike outline so users could have a better idea where exactly to hit the skin, especially the rim shot.

The biggest disappointment is there isn't an option to change the spark animations into something else like say.....notes, or butterflies....or maybe some blood or smoke or lightning.

Fix a few shortcomings and the app gets 5 stars......until then it gets 4......nah...I'm not going to bother coming back. It's good enough as deployed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Blown away… GREAT job Mode of Expression

Darn near close to perfection (for ma, anyway) Been looking for a drum app like this for years. No kidding. I have everything I need for my own one-man-band with this on my iPad. I needed an app that would allow me to use my fingers to tap out drums during recording. This fits the bill perfectly. The ability to edit, scale, move and 'tweak' drums to various volumes and pitches is excellent. You can tell a lot of thought went into the interface. I can honestly say I can't think of one thing that needs fixing. Please don't bloat this app up! Perhaps a few more drum kits would be nice. A pre-fab 'pop kit' would add a nice touch. Keep up the good work!


The things I would like to see changed are 1. Make the rim shot easier to hit 2. Move the tap menu from the bottom 3. Gets slow and laggy when fooling around with the recording and other various menu options 4. Option to rearrange default drums 5. I would like to see better dynamics 6. Have metronome options to have one tape or multiple 7. Be able to record the music that your playing to 8. Be able to start with or without metronome while recording 9. Stability issues. 10. When recording stop it from saving everything when you stop recording. Other then that it's great
