Yo Quads: got a stoopid new around that’s keeping you up nights? Write it out and play along with the new Tenor Composer App from Telephonic Amusements!

Sweeps, exercises, street beats, solos - or work out your ensemble together. Slow it down, speed it up, edit it, max it out. This composer is a playground for your craziest ideas, so get on it.

Play it back with the actual tenor drum sounds of DCI Hall of Fame inductee, Paul Rennick's 2012 Santa Clara Vanguard, as recorded by bass tech Brian Lowe, tuned the way they sounded on finals night.

Best with Headphones.

Has lots of potential

This app is pretty ok but it needs a lot of more features. A feature to be able to select a set of 4-6 drums would be great instead of only being able to work with 5. Also, better controls for changing and deleting notes should be made. More options for rolls would be amazing too


Pretty cool but..

Writing on the app works great once you get used to it, but playback after saving is a bit weird. Sometimes it will glitch and I am not able to hear the playback of the piece. Some sort of patch would be much appreciated


Sound problem

I really like the app it’s great but for some reason it’ll stop producing the sounds of the drums and just leave the met... what is this?
