Worth the dough

I’ve been got a small fortune invest in iPad music apps. There always seemed to be a lackluster selection for the percussive sections as far as creativity. Honestly up until now I would argue that GarageBand’s sequencer was as good or better than any app available. Of course I had somehow missed this developer named Luis’ apps but man these things are awesome. Tons of fun, great sounds, patterns for those times you have a melodic itch you wanna jump straight into, and patterns that are thoughtfully selected/created that will inspire you from the many corners of electronic music. Obviously, you can make anything you like from scratch as well. So far, very impressed. Will update if I run into anything worth noting but I have a feeling this is a well polished machine and there won’t be many issues. All of Luis’ apps are among the best in the iPad music world for rhythm. It’s worth it to save your money to get one of his apps rather than 3 more of the same synths or effects. I suggest this because he was able to combine a little of everything into this one I feel like it’s the least commitment to a certain sound/genre for the price and will give you an idea of if these apps are for you. Anyhow really nice app! Recommended for sure

Playin’ at music with a Pro’ sittin’ in

As a public school teacher, I worked to develop skills and flexibilities to utilize them within each of my students. A cardinal approach is to facilitate the student from where they are when you encounter them, to next steps on their journey, by providing models, encouragement and inspiration along their path. Across diverse fields of curriculum, part of the goal included providing opportunity for the student to experience the subject matter from perspectives within the discipline (e.g. how would a scientist pursue “scientific method” to move from observation/ curiosity through gathering data, drawing conclusions, forming hypothesis, testing its application to “discovering a principle”, or how might a writer use a particular format to express/ convey content to an audience). That is what Lumbeat does with each of its apps: provide models, each of which contains levels of interaction and variations to accommodate an encourage the user’s participation in playing/ creating music. Whether basic AND interesting accompaniment, while the user plays on another instrument or mastering the basics, intricacies and art of drumming, this and the other Lumbeat apps will provide many successful “next steps”

A Great and Very Useful Drum App For Pros and Amatuers

I have been using “SuperMetronome” when working with my music and loved it. I saw this one and thought a little expensive but gave it try since I really liked SuperMetronome. Future Drummer is really an all around useful app for percussionist and musicians. It has plenty of controls and can be used with a variety of other music apps and programs. It has MIDI out, inter-app audio, 2 necessary features. Song mode Is fantastic for creating a song quickly. It has enough effects for most users, compressor, reverb,EQ, and delay. Live Pads is great for use in Live jamming. There are additional sounds you can purchase along with giving you two free. I am a percussionist and love to practice with it and help me make up grooves and beats. A lot of features in one app. It will take a little time to fully use it. To cut the learning curve down I wish there was a manual or users example doc to help. One last think, this is no toy, pros, amateurs and educators can make use of Future Drummer.
