Compose cadences on the go! Choose from snares, tenors, bass drums, cymbals, and even drumset if you want. In a league of its own, DrumToolz also lets you manually input exercises for drum set, marching snare, tenors, and bass drums while generating new creative ideas using what you input, all shown on an editable music score. You can also upload your beats to your social profile, play what other users are playing, save rhythms, practice snare drum rudiments, and learn from a full library of dynamic exercises for both snare drum and drumset! It's perfect for all skill levels, from beginner to extremely advanced, drum wizards.

Works great for sharing drum cadences with your drumline. Isolate individual snare, tenors, etc. parts.

Practice the simplest to the most complex of beats and rhythms. If you can think of it, you can input it and practice it! Anything from beginner rock beats, to the most complex of jazz beats and fills. Lastly, top off the notes with ornaments: stickings, accents, flams, diddles, and cheese. Input up to 50 measures.

When practicing drum set beats, choose from a ride cymbal, hihat, hihat foot, kick drum, snare drum, and three toms. Input everything from whole notes to thirtysecond notes and tuplets. Also, for tenors, choose from four tenors and a spock. Bass drums - five bass drums. Marching snare - a realistic marching snare and a ping sound.

Generate new ideas (modifications) using beats that you input into the score. Choose from several modification methods: Add, Shuffle, Substitute, Permutate, Repeat, and Random. Modify individual parts of the beat (ex: kick drum only) or the entire beat if desired.

Custom snare exercises. Choose the time sig, subdivisons, tuplets, stickings, accents, flams, diddles, cheese, drags.

Save the beat in the score for later practice, keeping the modifications if desired. If the modifications are kept, this turns the beat into an endless, dynamic exercise! Each time you generate an exercise, it uses the modifications to give you an entirely new beat.

String together saved rhythms and practice them as one exercise, perfect for practicing beats followed by a drum fill.

Upload your beats to your profile. Find and follow other drummers in the social network. Learn from them as you see and practice what they have uploaded to their profile.

Share your beats through PDF links and files. Also, share your entire score with a link that pre-populates the score into the app.

Learn from a full library of dynamic drum set and snare drum exercises, essential and hybrid rudiments included.

For highlighted rhythms, shuffle around groups of notes, stickings, accents, flams, diddles, and cheese.

Weakness of UI

This app is tottaly at another level from all other drums educational apps but i dont know why developers don’t improve their UI, for ex: i can not see the bar line in tuplet moid or i cant chang the measure by scrooling down the numbers, cause in my iphone, i only can here the voice of increasing or decreasing the numbers and its visual box (ui) always is a white blank page anf if any body dosent know about that, it really is a big problem for tuplet measerement or other stuff, but beside of this weaknees, it’s mind blowing and i use it every they for my warmup practices and beat generating! Also i wish you developer guys add an “open hi hat“ ton into your samples, cause you have only the ride samples and ride decay is way much more than open hihat sound. Thank you so much for such a cool app duds!

First off, I think that this is an ok app but its missing many things that are basic. First off, the UI has issues and often I cant read words listed on them. Secondly, snares need options for a buzz. Cymbals should also have an option to sizzle. Bases also need the options for rim shots and not just normal hits. The app also has an issue with crashing. If you zoom out, glitches, and too many notes can crash the app and delete your progress, I really think there should be an auto save feature. Lastly I think the sounds should be updated, which is probably a lot to implement since the sounds are already pretty good but just a suggestion. I hope that this can help fix some of the issues, but the goods out-way the bad. If you write songs that have multiple instruments and like over 20 measures, the app will not save it properly, messes up the location of where the instruments play, mess with the time signatures, and will completely crash if you open it.

Great app, just a few issues

Hi, I really like this app, I love how I’m able to make all the little notes for the drums and stuff, and I myself am a drummer so this app is like phenomenal. Just a few things, I honestly think you should add like more measures and like drum rolls if possible, and maybe like base drum notes as well if it’s possible. Other than that I love the app and would love to see more.
