BarbaXDrums is a virtual extension for your E-Drum and more...

Here is some feedback by BarbaXDrums users:

„It was the surprise of the day!
Awesome sounds!“

„I think your drum module is very nice sounding, covers a lot of styles and the effects and drum parameter alterations work well. It is the only drum module that I know of on iOS that is similar to other bigger packages on the desktop.“

„I have hundreds of drum samples ... and already feel some of yours are the best I have
-very tastefully selected..."

"When I tested different drum kits, I often forgot the time because it was so much fun to play along with my favorite drumless songs and often I had tears of happiness in my eyes ..." - Founder of BarbaXDrums

A Promising Start!

Look familiar? It’s almost like those desktop apps. An ambitious start to what may be a great option for those of us that produce music with real drums kits.

Needs some streamlining and efficiency tweaks. If you like this concept consider supporting this dev to help them see it grow and mature.
