Ratings and Reviews
Almost just works by itself.
I've been using this and a couple other Luis Martinez apps for a couple years now. My most recent buy was MidEast Drummer and I've already used it in a song. It's so easy to get a beat going that inspires you to play. I pick up my guitar or my bass and just start jamming along. Sometimes I have a specific riff and I have to alter the beat to what I need and that's easy enough. In fact setting up an entire song is a breeze. With all the apps Ableton Link enabled I can even have them all playing different parts in perfect time together.
One problem I have with many drum machines is that tapping in fills can be a real pain. Adding ghost notes and minor changes so that the beat sounds natural are also usually advanced stuff in other drum machines. All that is easy stuff with a simple slider. Tell it how complex you want it and it comes up with stuff on its own. It's amazing.
If you need a drummer and you don't have a real one available, these are easy to use, great sounding, and natural sounding apps. Only drummers will be able to tell it's not a real drummer... and even then, maybe not.
Dude. How do you do it??
Every drum machine you do is brilliant! I have a request. “Jazz Drummer”. Old school Blakey style nasty kits with big dark cymbals ! (?? 😬) and maybe a way to use the samples between the apps that you purchase. ? Those are requests not what I would call improvements. I don’t know how you could make these better or easier to use. I’ve sold this app for you quite a few times from my big mouth. And good musicians should have good tools. A lot of guys don’t live within 40 miles of a real drummer. Here ya go! And this one won’t smoke all of your weed 👍🙌
quickest drum composition app on iOS
This app is the hands-down iOS winner for making good beats quickly. The UI is super easy to master, there are tons of really good sounds, and you can change up the beat subdivisions and time signatures in any way you like. Add a roll of the dice, a really smart Jam intensity slider (which not only adds subtle changes to the beat but also adds fills), and song mode and this thing kills most any other drum app.
It gets the full 5 stars now that it has midi-out implemented, super easy now to record the midi which is great. \m/
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
