Ratings and Reviews
I have been hemming and hawing about this app since release and finally bought it. It is about ten times better than the videos and lite version of the app let on. Devs might take a page from the Looploft in how they demo their loop packs.
Anyway, the loops are just pure gold. Gadd's genius laid out so simply, such subtle details and groove without a ton of noise and flash. Really allows you to collaborate with one of the true greats and rethink the rhythm and substance of your composition. I also like the dry / wet mix versions so you can set the right flavor in your own daw.
I own lots of Looploft packs which are excellent but I feel these Gadd sessions go far beyond just simple drums loops.
Really cool. Fun to play along with. However....
It’s really cool to be able to play along with Steve Gadd, even though he’s not actually with you. However, I would love to see more variety in the fills and sometimes I feel that some of the grooves could have been more involved. But, hey, it’s Steve Gadd. I hope that this app can be expanded in future updates.
1/18/2018 update: It’s fun playing and using these grooves. I still would love to see more fills, but again, it’s STEVE GADD!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
