Ratings and Reviews
Please continue making improvements!
I began transcribing rudiment books like stick control and syncopation with this to allow the app to teach me how these rudiments should sound. I love this app. It crashes frequently- I would absolutely love the syncing to cloud to be a little easier to understand (and the restore and backup functions do not work for me) but the email works however very time consuming.
Please improve UI! allow for multiple lines or increase/decrease of visual notes. I love this app. Please continue it.
A must have for ALL musicians, especially Drummers
I own many different metronome apps, making me somewhat of a metronome enthusiast, but after one of my favorite drummers mentioned he uses, Synkd, I immediately purchased it from the App Store, and I'm so glad I did.
Before Synkd, I would simply set a specific BPM and begin playing along while reading my rudiments. Now, I'm able to not only set the BPM, but I can customize beats within bars all while using different time signatures and subdivisions in the same "Chain." This is so helpful because it means you can input all of your note values and practice without having to focus on reading. You can also change accidents on specific stems within beats. Also, if your fellow musicians have Synkd, too, you can easily share your chains with them. This feature makes writing music and collaborating a breeze! The list of features goes on, but I'd thought I'd highlight just a few.
Coming from an experienced musician (drummer) who has purchased many apps to aid in my improvement, I can confidently say that Synkd is not only the most advanced app for musicians--specifically drummers--but also the most effective. Using this app properly will surely improve your playing!
I hope this review helps aid you in your decision whether or not to purchase the app. Cheers!
Great for creating custom click tracks
This app is seriously great. I’m a professional percussionist and play a lot of music that changes meter. You can basically create a custom click track for any piece of music.
The one thing that would make this really perfect for me (and others who will use this as a custom click track creator) is if it was possible to change the tempo within a chain. On top of that, an option to accel/ritard to new tempos would be amazing. Hope to see that in a future update.
