  • Great app, but so many ads Jul 1, 2020

    By Drummerfanatic1
    I’ve been using this app for about 3-4 years now. It has gotten so much better over time. I love the new kits that are added on a weekly basis, and the ability to create custom kits. It’s a fluid app that’s simple and very easy to use. However, one gripe I have about this app is that there are so many ads. It’s the same ad over and over again. It pops up every time I change a kit entirely, as well as when I try to change the individual pads. And even worse, it’s $1.99 a month to eliminate the ads and get all the loops. This is what I don’t understand at all. When I first started using this app, it was only a one time payment of $1.99. I guess with the expansion of the app over the years this is to be expected? But I still don’t think 1.99 a month is reasonable. Of course, this is just my subjective experience, and some may have less ads, and have no problem with paying monthly to get rid of them. I realize ads are used to support the developer, so if there’s no way to stop them without the $1.99 monthly payment, (and before putting device on airplane mode, 😂) that’s perfectly ok. All in all, one of the best drum apps out there.

  • Please fix this bug!! Oct 21, 2019

    By <therunewriter>
    I had a really awesome setup before. I loved this app! 10/10. The new update has some great ideas, but a few major functionality issues. I really like being able to have multiple kits saved, however I am frustrated that I can no longer properly add my own sound samples. The app lets them load into the kit, but when I tap on my custom cymbals or drums the samples cut off extremely quickly and make this weird click-y echoing noise. Once again, I greatly appreciate the work you all have put into this app! Please fix the issue with the sound samples.

    I think it's a pretty dang good app for a phone! I've gotten four of the kits and sounds really good when you run it through a system.... always good to practice your timekeeping... I am a hard grader so it's hard for me to give a five star..... maybe if you could record a track that would be a 5-star deal right there! But appreciate the app

    Awesome update! New cymbal animations, even the overall animation is so smooth like what, 60fps? That is so dope... I have a suggestion, can you make a 3D top view kick so that it will look awesome... It is ok if we can just edit the toms, cymbals, and a moving kick pedal is awesome to look at right? I hope you can consider my suggestion.... Thanks

  • It’s pretty good Jun 14, 2020

    By B_Stewy
    I’ve had this app for a whole, and overall, I’ve really liked it. It’s definitely not perfect but it’s one of the best drumming apps I have found. It has a wide variety or drum sets and also recently started making drum sets from bands such as Mötley Crüe, Black Sabbath, (maybe Rush but that’s might just be me) and I’m really enjoying that. I don’t have much to complain about because it is a pretty stable app that has little bugs, and if it does, is usually fixed quite quickly. Overall, this app is a very good app and I would recommend!

  • Awesome app, but... Feb 28, 2019

    By Hack4171
    I’m a drummer of about 25 years. I’m always looking for a solid drumming app that will let me play along with the songs in my music library. This app does, and the ability to adjust levels and swap individual kit pieces is fantastic. I’m also a huge fan of the responsiveness of each piece of the kit, it’s one of the best I’ve seen on an app so far. A couple setbacks that prevent me from giving this app a higher rating. - there’s no way to physically adjust the pieces of the kit, so hitting the hi-tom without simultaneously hitting another drum with your fingers is difficult. - there is an occasional hiccup with audio quality, where the kick drums especially will tend to sound staticy after playing for awhile. The rest of the kit sometimes gets this same static sound. - the inability to incorporate dynamic playing is also kind of a letdown, but not a deal breaker. It would’ve been nice to have some way to hit a cymbal with less force and have it crash at a softer dynamic, or as I’ve seen on other apps, the edge of the piece is for a lighter hit and the dead center is for a full force hit. All in all, a fun app, and a well done app, when it works. The audio glitch irritates me, and I just reboot the app over and over until it fixes itself.

    Ok so Ive played this for a few days straight. Love the sound and how realistic the drum kit is. I have ignored the push notificatiins and ads that continue to pop up because I think it is one of the best drum apps I have seen so far, but tonight I have been bombarded with ads that I cant click off and theres no option to that either so I have to close the app. I also cant download the new kits or backrounds. Deserves its 2star rating for that.

  • I love it but the update... Oct 10, 2017

    By NoNoNoNoNoYes
    Ive had this app for ages and I never do reviews but Ive just played it after the update for first time and its not good. Where has my classic set gone? Thats the only reason i paid for ad removal and used this so much. The modern sounded like cr*p but the classic I loved. Give us back the option to switch around modern to classic and then maybe switch up the individual items once on the set you like. The classic items arent even in the options for individual items. Like why? They were already in the app and you removed them? I cant use this anymore cause the new sounds are horrible and unbearable. Please revert to the great drum app you had!!!

  • SERIOUS BUG!!!!!!! PLEASE READ ASAP!!!!!! May 11, 2020

    By Chasfb
    The app as a SERIOUS BUG. It constantly doesn’t work when I go into it where either it freezes and I can’t do anything or there is no sound. Also, there is another SERIOUS BUG that happens when I change kits and the sound disappears or the app freezes. Please look into this bug ASAP and fix it. I hope other have these issues too, because I didn’t have these issues before the last update which said it fixed bugs, but actually put bugs in.

    Ok. I get it. I have been looking for drum apps for alot of time and this is best one. I have drum set already but I never practice. So I spend a lot of time on my iPad and I found this app. I’ve only been playing for like an hour but it’s already AWESOME! But when I write a review it crashes and I have to close and open again. Other than that it’s great! Keep up the awesome work! 👌👌👌👌🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂👏👏👏👏👏👏

    Very nice app. Been using it for practice and doing covers for years now. Touch response is perfect for me. Lots of drum sets. My only issue is that i think you need to increase the volume so that the music youre playing it with doesnt drown the sound of the app. Overall review, very nice.

    Best drumming app out there but really needs to address its issue with sound delays whilst using any Bluetooth headset, which is quite annoying. Then would definitely be worthy of a higher rating. EDIT: Since last update great improvement in Bluetooth audio latency when drumming solo BUT still needs work on latency WHILST playing a song track in background or even within the drum app media player. Increased rating to 4 star and will rate 5 star when this is totally fixed. Thankyou.

  • Really good, but found a problem May 12, 2020

    By gods 3rd son
    This is actually really, I have drums in my pocket now, and can play then whenever I’m board. But recently I can’t open the app and play them. When I open up the app, it takes to the drums like usual, but when I tap them they don’t move or make sound. I have deleted the app, and then reinstalled it again and then seems to work, but when I close the app and go back to it, it doesn’t work again. This might be just me and my iPhone is just stupid, but what ever, this is the best drumming app I can find, so it’s s sham I can’t play them right now.

  • The music player doesn’t work like it used to. Jun 17, 2018

    By Drummerguy666
    I love this app but I have a problem that I think is a pretty big one. This has been going on for a couple months now and I think it needs to be addressed. I went to choose a song from my music, but when I clicked on it, it crashed. (Meaning the song). Also, this app crashes horribly on my IPhone 7 Plus. Every time I open it I can only touch the screen and then it just crashes. Otherwise, this is a simple nice app that just needs a couple things fixed.

  • It’s ok 👌 Jul 22, 2018

    By kk likes to play plyay
    I think that this game is great but it’s not the best. I think that they should teach you more about the 🥁 and Not just let you play. I myself like to write music and I’m trying to find the right be to go with it but the thing is they don’t teach you enough about the drums to where you were able to find the right beat or anything like that. But the good things about this is you are still able to find the right beat just as you have to had had it for a while. I honestly think that is a very great app there’s just a few little things that I hope you fix. Some people might not agree with me but that’s just what I think.

    they worked the bugs out so app seems to run alot better so I would give a 5 start but the pay part of the app is stupid. for 1.99 a month u get no ads, metronome, & all loops.. ok why is it pay 2 bucks every month and not just one 2 dollar payment? also if your device is able you can choose an area on your screen that will disable the touch response so you can effectively play without hitting that pesky ad always at the top

    I had a great time playing the standard kit to the loops, works and feels great. However as soon as I download a new Kit, the game instantly crashes and then will not open. I had to reinstall to be able to use it again. Hope this gets fixed as I would like to explore the other kits.
