Just bought the pro version, but it crashes.

I just bought the pro version of this awesome app today, but when I played the jazz kit for a second and went out of the app and back in again, it doesn’t even load the kits up and takes me out of the app. I don’t know if it’s a software problem, but I just updated my software to the latest update so I don’t see how that could be part of the problem. Love your app but please fix ASAP since I want to play more! Cheers.

Next part: Deleting the app and reinstalling like you’d said worked, Paulo. Thank you. But I have an amazing idea to make this app even better! What if you added a “Heads” feature. What I mean is so you could have different heads such as 2 ply coated, two ply clear, 1 ply coated, 1 ply clear and different snare heads, too. For example: 1 ply coated, 2 ply coated, heads with dots and/or internal or external muffling, ECT. I don’t know if that’ll work or happen, but I think it is an awesome idea to change up the sound of the drums with more than just tuning and customizing your own kit. That said, those features are absolutely great and I love them, but this is just an idea to make the app even better than it already is. I truly think that this is the BEST drum app on the App Store because of its versatility and realism. Once again, thank you for replying back. I’m just glad I could fix the issue! Great app, man! Keep it up!

Great app but a few suggestions

This is a great drumming app for beginners and experts. It is great over all, but I have one main suggestion. How about an in-game tuner? To me the snare doesn’t sound quite right, so I would like a tuner. Maybe just to adjust the sounds of the drums to be creative. Another small suggestion I have is maybe make a mode where you can teach yourself the music. However, this would only work for people that can read drum sheet music. What I’m suggesting is maybe have a mode where the player picks a song and the notes go along the top of the screen and the player drums with it to the beat. Another small problem I have is when I use Bluetooth headphones. The sound can get a bit delayed. If I tap the drum, the sound might take another second or two to play in my headphones. Other than that a great game!

Hi Cade, thanks for the suggestions, and yes, I am planning to release a teaching module, that will take some time to program though ;)
There is a tuner in the app and you can fine tune each drum part. Please let me know if you need help, ok?

Excellent ideas here!

The ideas behind the app really are revolutionary! (This is coming from a drummer with over 10 years of experience, who is fairly proficient on an actual drum kit.) Even without using my foot to control the kick drum, I can play a lot more than I can on a ‘normal’ drum app. My only complaint with using my foot for the kick is that the app has trouble registering doubles and complex kick patterns. I have an iPhone 5s, (not a ton of space to work with) but at any rate, I would appreciate a more customizable kit so I could move the toms and cymbals around or choose to have less on my kit to use the space better. The samples aren’t phenomenal and the ads can get annoying but overall I’d say the developer is really onto something here! This could make the drums a lot more portable and available to drummers all around the world!!

(By the way, I would be more than happy to spend $10 to unlock a ‘full version’ without ads and more kits. I am not big on the idea of a subscription simply because I do not have a ton of money lying around.)
