Hidden Gem

This app is quite versatile and the sounds are really good. I really like the layout and possibilities with the drum pads in particular. The ability to latch a roll and play with the time signature and velocity for every stroke can create some really cinematic "drum line" parts.

Highly recommended at the going price :)

Nice app totally free no ads!!!

Everything is nice but the only problem with this app you can't save your project you can only save the mixed down audio

Amazing app!!

All it needs is the ability to have volume control of the metronome. Other than that, perfect
