I am presciently embarrassed by the almost certain ease of the solution to my problem. First, this app is nothing short of spectacular. A clever operator could work an entire live (PA) performance with DM-1 alone and it is ENDLESS fun in creation-mode in your environment of choice. If you are as obsessed with drum machines as I am or just like an effective sketch pad, pick this immediately. My problem is that I MOSTLY USE the iPhone version of DM-1. I never noticed before today, I CANNOT LOCATE TEMPO CONTROL. The experience is akin to thinking you might have seen something supernatural; I can’t get my head around it. So again, I am preemptively embarrassed by how stupidly easy this answer will be.

Developer Response ,

The tempo settings can be found in the TOOLS page, hope it helps! Thanks for your support.

Major bug to fix

This app is a great mid level drum machine for song writers! One can go as crazy with time signature changes in a single song as one wishes to (7/4 to 17/8 to 23/16 etc), however I have experienced problems repeatedly with the “song loop” switch not responding. Many times it reads “off” when it is on which could be a disaster live. A five star product (for an iPhone drum machine) aside from this major bug. I am deleting this app and calling it a five dollar loss like sooo many other poorly designed half assed iPhone “would be”useful musical apps.

Very well developed

This app is amazing and fun. You can export as .wav or .aac for use in many DAW’s on iPhone or on computer of transferred.
There are so many settings to play around with.
I am surprised how well the app is designed. Very easy to use and I am still finding out new things I can do with the app. It’s fun to play around with while you explore and navigate through all the menus.
VERY WELL DONE developers. Hope to see more apps like this in the future. Thanks!
