Absolutely love this app!

I am 61 yrs old and have loved music all my life. When my peers were all listening to hard rock I was into jazz and fusion. Upon purchase of this app I immediately found a new musical resource for the toolbox. Add to Soft Drummer the iBassist app and you can spend hours upon hours going down musical paths you probably never thought possible before. Having the extra drumming styles takes an already powerful app and transforms it into a powerhouse. I recommend that you not wait to download this app. Any hesitation is only preventing you for a truly joyful experience. And don't forget about the iBassist app to take your ideas even further.

Great to jam with but needs documentation

Got this and Reggae Drummer at about the same time. They really are a lot more fun to jam with than typical drum machines. That said, I feel like I’m probably missing a lot because of the absence of documentation. For example, it took me watching a video regarding iBassist to figure out how to sync the apps. I’m also at the point where my interpretation of the jam controls is essentially just more means more stuff going on. (Knocked this down from a perfect rating for the unlabeled controls in the jam page. Familiarity with Reggae Drummer offered clues but I disliked guessing in an otherwise polished app when there was obviously space available.) If I want to move past playing with the preset patterns, some guidance would help.

More speechless w/ every new creation!!

These drums are breathtaking in quality. I’ve had some world class drummers flip out over the tracks I come up with; solely using lumbeat drum apps. Buy them all! If you want real drum tracks these are untouchable. And these apps won’t try and steal your girlfriend!!! I’ve been waiting for years for this app. It’s surpassed all hope in ease versatility groove and sounds. The sounds are world class on their own merit. Thank you yet again for a beautifully human machine. I could only give five stars ... or it’d be many more. Amazing ! God bless.
