Drum sounds appear to be recorded on a cassette player. Don't cross your fingers for drum rolls as all you'll get it multiple single taps. Overall with a little more dedication to this app, after it is updated more frequently to solve current issues it should be good. As of now mediocre at best. Not worth $4.99, yet
My bpm wouldn't even toggle. Plus. . .lag for all. Waiting for a fix before I throw my money out the uninstall window.
Having used Dedicated Drum Machines from Roland & Yamaha I was amazed to have so much functionality avaialable on my phone! What I would say however is that the app could do with some help screens! (I fed back to the author who promised to add) .However, once you realise that there are only three basic modes/screens - "live" for bashing out things in real time, 'sequencer' for putting together and playing back 4 bars in step mode, and 'Song' - for chaining sequences together, it is actually quite straightforward. The author of the app is very open to suggestions and seemed appreciate of my feedback.
An ok start
I got this mostly to play with the sequencer so my comments are limited to that. The app does does make it easy to make some short sequences then tie them together into a song. There are some performance issues though, the worst of which is there seems to be a gap in time between each sequence. It becomes pronounced when you increase the BPM up to 140-160. There are some other finishing things that are annoying (saving a sequence seems to happen twice, there is a lag when changing between functions, some functions aren't clear) so i'm going to rate this as two stars with the hope that some fixes will smooth out the rough bits.
