Great! 5/5
by PolyDROID - Version 1.0 - Jun 15, 2013
Simple, but really beautiful sounding. Think Daft Punk 'Derezzed'. Wish it was a VST or AU host. My dream synthetic drum machine.

Amazing app 5/5
by Tronic j - Version 1.0 - Jun 20, 2013
Amazing app. ... Some really interesting effects can be achieved with the delay section which also functions as a kind of sequencer, so that beats can be juxtaposed and overlaid.

Top Synth ! 5/5

Boom! 5/5
by Swiftkickinc - Version 1.0 - Jun 14, 2013
This is the best drum synth on ios. There are others that are more in depth, and have more features but if you just need a boomin kick, snappy snares, and some hats its perfect!...

Customer Reviews

Waste of time and $$$$

Dials are impossible to accurately adjust. Asking for a refund

Lightweight drum machine not useful

No real useful features to speak of.... No MIDI, no Ableton Link, no IAA or AudioBus support. Not even BACKGROUND CAN it do?

This app is completely useless in terms of making beats or music.

Dude... You Forgot Something

Seriously—a drum synth with on IAA or core MIDI support? What the duck am I supposed to do with this??? I suppose I could sample it (it sounds pretty good), but I have better things to do with my time.
