This is really powerful and flexible

I own several other Lumbeat apps and this most recent one has an awful lot of new features. I am kind of blown away. All the Lumbeat Apps sound really good and I am not a HipHop guy, more of a jazzer, but this has so much more capability than one would expect from hip hop. i think it it useful for many other genres.

Fantastic for syncing with other drums

Just hip hop drums is really nice. but I learned you can synch tempo and transport use Ableton Link to get others to play along. So much variety. Very fun to live jam with Soft drummer for more advanced beats. Works great in AUM if you enable Link there too and can then record, add effects, glitching, mixing.

Another great app!!!

Again, another great app!

I hope you plan to make all your apps AUv3 compatible especially within Logic. The recent workaround is great but I fear Apple will drop IAA support and your apps will eventually not work.

Please have an upgrade price to AUv3 for your dedicated users.
