One of my two favorites

so I have purchased all but a few of us guys apps and the two I most consistently use our Soft Drummer and this one. All of them are well worth the cost if you are serious about devising, interesting new beats if you’re looking for something to actually record studio quality, drums, I would say future drummer could cut that mustard probably not any of the others, but playing along with any one of them is really one of the best drum machine apps experience youll have.

my only nit to pick is something technical about the other drummers available for purchase. I purchased the clyde drummer using my phone and I can access it on my phone but not on my iPad. I’d be happy to purchase it again for my iPad but I can’t even get that option. I did email the guy who makes this and he got back to me once but he didn’t respond the second round of requests for fixing it.
again, a small nit to pick but i really want that clyde kit, get it?

Funk Drummer offers a good variety of grooves and the ability to program a head to sequence different styles and even kits. If you put it in an application like AUM mixer/bus and use of a AUV3 plug-ins, you can direct record beats and funk around with the feel to your soulful delight. With adjustable swing and multiple real drummer screws emulated, this is a powerhouse app that could be used for demos or even professional studio applications. If you’re not satisfied with the in-house sounds, drop it in a DAW, or start it in AUM and direct-record out into Audioshare or a DAW for live performance/recording sessions. I have a needed to look any further than the customizable sounds that are in it, but I’m going to bet that this is a very nice midi controller. I love the odd meter and fusion groove templates. I’d love some more of the odd meter. And I am impressed by Nete Smith, which seems to be a great synthesis/combination of 2 great beatsmiths, Nate Smith and Steve Smith. Keep it funky!

I’ve been using the very GLITCHY CDUBS LOOPS Zappa for about 2 years now, which also kept me lazy. It got the job done primarily in a moderate small church situation. Yet again, GLITCHY and each update seems to make it less and less reliable. So, late last night my playlists were totally erased. Long story short, I opened this app again remembering how dope it was yet was too spoiled to truly learn it. I was able to use it today f maybe 8 song playlist. I can mix each individual drum; effects like compression and DELAY 🗣OOO. The DELAAAAAY!!😱. My music today got SO MANY COMPLIMENTS. I had people coming up to my keyboard, sending me text etc that the music was so good today. JAM INTENSITY😱😱. SONG MODE!?!?! MARTINEZ IS A GENIUSand very thoughtful developer THANKS!!! AND I was able to load it IAA into AUM
