  • 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.

  • 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!

    The recent update made the app better in recording preferences of the user. The only thing that us setting us not to give it a 5-star rating is showcasing your skills in live performances and the also the different kinds of kit that doesn't sound right and natural. Thank you.

  • 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.

    I just updated the app today but still nothing happens. The recording is broken. The drums don't move when I listen to recordings. Also the "Record background song" feature is not working. And I always see boxes around the drums it's very distracting. Just fix everything in the next update so that you get your usual ratings like before

    1 star for the new update, Im so disappointed. the loop effect on record has been removed, after I recorded the pattern and I play it, it shoud be continues like a loop pattern. Now the update, if you want to play your record and the doration is done, there is a confirmation if you want to play it again or no. Please bring back the old one. Thank you

I already uninstall and installing this app back and reboot my phone 3 times and the results still the same. FIX THAT IMMEDIATELY!

  • My favorite app o Aug 22, 2020

    By USDA SOUTHWEST REG
    This app is 5 star all the way. I ve been into playing drums all my life. I’m not in a project playing these days. I down loaded 4 years ago as a novelty. But I have found this is a functional to work out a groove from your head or song very useful. It can’t replace a physical warm up but it certainly helps get your head into it.

  • 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.

    I have not read any solution/reason given by Kolbs about delay sound of Real Drum from many Vivo users. Well, I tried using old version of it and 5.1 version of Real Drum is good enough for me to play with only almost unnoticeable delay. I tried almost every single version of it and 5.1 is the most appropriate from my vivo y53. Maybe those who want to play Real Drum regardless of version to try the same as I did. Thanks.

  • It is great but there is one problem Feb 26, 2020

    By PurpleWYt
    I think this is a great app but there is one problem that bothers me slot. When using the tom drums there is not really enough space for me to do specific drum fills because the cymbals and tom drums are pretty much right next to each other so I would like them placed further back a bit. Other than that one problem this is a amazing app! 👍

  • 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.

  • Was good for a long time Oct 4, 2019

    By itsyaboiuuhh
    Ive had this app for about 2 or 3 years now and its always been pretty good. The sensitivity is perfect and the samples sound good, but recently, any sounds made within the app make a horrible crackling noise, almost as if my speakers are broken. (which they are not, it only crackles in this app) so if that could be fixed it&#39;d be a 5 star app.

    Recently, the drums for this app stop working and makes anything in the app unplayable. This may just affect me but I’ve deleted an downloaded this app to check but it worked for a little while before going back to being unplayable. Please look into this.

  • Now a subscription? Feb 17, 2020

    By sobered69
    This is overall a wonderful application, but the most recent change made the full (ad-free) version a monthly subscription. Does this mean that those of us that already paid for ad-free are going to be expected to pay monthly?

  • Wished it had MIDI. Nov 4, 2018

    By Slimbeaux
    It is one of the few drum apps that have all four toms, 3 rack and 1 Floor. That makes it very complete. But I was hoping to use my Pad Controller to play it. But alas it is not to be. Good sounds, changeable layout but without MIDI Controller pretty much useless for real music making. Thanks anyway. I would be willing to pay for MIDI.

  • Bogged down by ads Mar 15, 2020

    By Ed of the Dead
    Used it for about 20 minutes. Look, I understand you gotta make money someway, but I was getting held up 20-30 seconds every time I wanted to go in between a different setting. Seems like a pretty cool app, but not worth all the ads. And on top of that, most of the ads were for different drum apps that look more user friendly than this one.

  • Sound delay Dec 2, 2017

    By Possum Joe
    Fun to play when not connected to my Bose Bluetooth headset. When connected to Bluetooth there is a significant delay. It would be nice to play with headphones so as not to annoy others as us drummers are known to do with our tapping and beating. There’s no help menu or user guide. I recorded but have no idea where they are saved to.

    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!!!
