Play along with the greatest drummers in the world and improve your knowledge of rhythm. Now with Metrogenius: the smart Metronome, with "clave" and "swing regulator"!
Drumgenius (created by a musician for musicians) is the first encyclopedia of real drum grooves (400 loops from Jazz to Rock) as played by the masters of drums: a unique tool for any musician that wants to practice with an amazing expert virtual drummer, to develop time-feel and to expand the knowledge of any kind of rhythm, from the basic to the most complex one! The loops (stretchable) are accompanied by useful descriptions and discography references. The special "clave" button helps to go deep into the nature of different rhythms.
▶"Mauro Battisti has made it possible for anyone to play along with the greatest drummers in the world, historical and contemporary, with the ability to alter tempo. Drumgenius is a great resource that can bring any player closer to the flame.”
▶ "Drumgenius sounds very good; I find it very handy to practice my instrument with real drums pattern that I can have always with me in my phone: thanks Mauro for this App."
Dominique Di Piazza - Electric bass player (John McLaughling, Trilok Gurtu, Bireli Lagrene, Dennis Chambers)
▶ "Love this app: these loops sound fantastic! They are real drum loops – not midi or sequences – and they loop flawlessly. In addition to being a fantastic groove reference for drummers (or musicians of any kind), I think this app is fantastic for groove development as a bassist."
Damian Erskine - Electric bass player (Peter Erskine, The Jaco Pastorius Big Band, Gino Vannelli, Tony Furtado), studio musician, author of bass method book series, adjunct Professor at both Portland State University and Marylhurst University – USA.

If you are a musician looking to jam with great drum feels this is the app for you!!!!
I am a drummer and when I heard this my jaw dropped.... time to find a new day (night) job ;)
I originally thought somehow the loops were extracted from the original recordings but I soon realized no just someone nailed the programming.....
The metronome included is fantastic too.... if you are a committed artist you will want this app and I love that you can try a few loops for free!!!
I find the logo disturbing but that’s me ;)
Thanks you for this great app!!
Oh and add a little button so you can email or message a download link to people!!!
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much my friend!!
Yes I realized all the loops with my master keyboard and virtual sounds :-)
Soon an upgrade with 50 new loops and new functions!
I will add that button for sure, THANKS!
Great app. Is there sheet music?
I love the loops, and I love the sounds. I don’t mind going through and transcribing onto paper the notes myself. But some stuff is quite difficult. Is there a tab, or a website I am not aware of that has the drum loops as sheet music ?
Developer Response ,
Hey my friend! Thanks for your words :-)
Not for now, I'm working on DG loops (percussion groove excluded) transcriptions :-)
A Big Hug my friend and W La Musica :-)
This is a great sounding drum loop app. Lots of loops, good value.
