Ratings and Reviews
I purchased this entire app thinking it would have some flexibility. It has no flexibility. It's simply plays a drum beat that cannot be used anywhere else or with any other app as far as I can tell. What really put me off is how little control I have over each drumbeat. I can't even change the tempo. Instead of changing the tempo, the tempo bar simply redirects you to another drum beat that is played at the tempo you desire. It doesn't matter if it's the beat you want or not. Finally, each beat can be redirected to a shameless commercial for Drums on Demand. I like Drums on Demand and have used them. I usually, however, do not pay for apps to get advertising. Until one is given more options with this application I considered a waste of money.
As a user of DOD products I was excited to see this app and quickly paid for the upgrade. The app works fine and is just a taste of what DOD has to offer. This app and service could and should be developed to be the number one site for drum loops and use for music production on iOS systems. Needs audiobus support as a start. Next should be either a subscription service or further in app purchases to access the most amazing catalog of drum loops, band on demand etc.. in the DOD library. I do more recording on my IPad than ever before thanks to audiobus and I hope DOD delivers!!
Waiting for the update. But as is...no.
Honestly, these loops sound amazing. AMAZING. But you can't adjust the tempo and this app will NOT integrate with any other iOS apps. Not even audiocopy or export support.
So unless you want to go old school with a cable out of the headphone jack. Then set levels, cut, paste, mix, and export all over again, it's nothing more than a glorified demo app. I'm trying to streamline my workflow by pre building drum tracks using nothing but iOS while away from the studio. But this app is worthless for that.
Honestly, I would pay $20 if they simply added a tempo knob, audiocopy, and audiobus to the existing loops. Probably even more. The loops are that good. But no word on an update yet.
