Play along with the greatest drummers in the world and improve your knowledge of rhythm. Drumgenius (only Infinite Credits pack) includes Metrogenius: the smart Metronome, with "clave" and "swing regulator"!

Drumgenius (created by a musician for musicians) is the first encyclopedia of drum grooves (500 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.”
(Dave Liebman)

▶ "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.

Finally, a great beats metronome.

Finally someone made a polished app using drum beats instead of a basic metronome click. I’m a professional classical musician and while I’ll still need to get out the tempo advanced app every now and then to do more complex subdivisions, for everyday basic practice with a backing click for time keeping this app is WAY MORE FUN to use Fun = practicing longer. I’ve tried a bunch of apps trying to do this over the years but none came close to this. It’s easy to change beats, to hear samples, and most important to adjust the speed and pitch of the track. The pricing is reasonable and there’s a lot of great choices. Most important, the interface is silky smooth and polished which makes using it a breeze. A+ well done devs!

One suggestion: I purchased the 50 credit pack, but now I’m thinking I may want to get all of them. I wish there were a way to “complete your collection” at a discounted rate that totals the full price.l instead of having to pay for the full price in addition to what I already paid.

Better than my drummer

Drumgenius is fantastic! It’s very easy to find the loop you want from its large catalog; and the feel is awesome, I literally can’t stop jamming to it. The Drumgenius loops have a very human, natural feel--not mechanical at all. Much better than any drum machine; and frankly, it’s better than most drummers I’ve played with over that last 40 years!

As stated by many great musicians, such as Michael Breker and Pat Metheny, having good time is an essential skill for every musician. Play any notes you like, but phrase them well, and it sounds nice. Drumgenius is the perfect App to help a musician develop this vital skill of “good time!” Metronomes are fine, but Drumgenius is fun and educational. The diverse collection of awesome loops provides a fantastic practice tool for the serious Jazz improvisationalist, and the developer is extremely responsive. He responded to my question in less than 10 minutes! The software performs flawlessly, you will not be disappointed!

Amazing realism!

I am not a drummer. I am an amateur musician who wants to play against rhythmic backgrounds. DrumGenius was recommended to me by my professional musician friends — drummers and flute/sax players — as the best selection around for realistic drum loops. Instead of trying to pick and choose, I downloaded all 400. What fun! There is one rhythmic feel I can’t find in DrumGenius and I can’t find in other sources, and would love to have it available on DrumGenius. It’s a jazz feel — simple brushes in a swing style. You may not be a jazz drummer, but if you would check out Beegie Adair Trio’s style on The Good Life or Oscar Peterson’s Quartet, tune You Look Good to Me - you’ll get the idea. Second question, is there a way to export a loop from DrumGenius to an app like GarageBand? If that’s not possible, is there another way to think about how to write, for example, a duet with two flutes and have the drum loop for the background? Thanks so much!
