Over all this is a nice drum machine app. User friendly. Nice authenticity. Stable. There's one feature that would just make it perfect. Drum pitch and tuning. Being able to Automate that would make it even better!

I use it every day. It's the Swiss Army knife of beats. Not only that, it sounds amazing. I find it has a place in so many tracks I never expected. A crucial "layer" to have for anyone recording on an iPad or PC. Rendering to wav and getting it to a universal location is the easiest I've seen. U can email yourself the wav and get it from anywhere. With all the Dropbox drive iCloud crud they make you use. This one at least puts that back in your hands. And it sounds awesome as is very easy to use. Sly stone. Phil Collins. How about the Em-u or HR16B? It's a fabulous app. The best things in life are simple and appreciated. This app is that.

Incredibly great drum machine for a few bucks. (Not sure of current price , as I installed it a few months ago.) Exceptionally easy to use and provides emulations of many favorite and very popular classic drum machines. Just plain fantastic!!! How they can offer this for almost nothing is a mystery, as it is better than just about any other drum machine I have found. The simplicity and exceptional sound make it a pure joy to use. And it looks sooooo good.... Fantastic job of design and programming, guys.

I have dozens of iOS drum machines. This is my favorite. I use it to make dub and slow, simmering tech House. Probably the only drum machine that can hold the titles of fun and functional simultaneously. Get some.

This is missing really basic functions. For one, you can’t copy/paste sequences. So I can’t copy steps 1-8 and paste to 9-16, for example. Worse, you have to program all 64 steps so if you want to set up a quick 8 or 16 steps, forget it. I emailed the developer to ask about copy/paste thinking I might be missing how to do it, and didn’t get a response, so there’s that. The mixer section is really buggy. I bought this app to quickly get some beats going to play instruments along with, but tbh it’s quicker for me to just use ableton. This is a good example of why I rarely pay over .99 for an app.
