Ratings and Reviews
This pattern app is more fun than I could have dreamed.
I downloaded this during the start of the Corona 19 lockdown, and figured it would be like the dozens of other drum slicers/pattern makers/sequencing apps that flood the AppStore.
For the most part its a basic app “stripped down” but the one thing that makes this app unique is the 100’s upon 100’s of FREE downloadable drums/sounds... I mean the unique packs made by real users, acoustic drums and kits, water drops and all 808’s 909’s 505’s and all the electronic beats you could dream of!
What makes the free packs of sounds so incredibly versatile is the fact that you can switch packs seamlessly on the fly live while the beat is playing, now that is AWESOME-SAUCE!
Bit of a learning curve…worth it
This was one of those apps that initially I downloaded on a whim, played with for a bit, scratched my head, and moved on. Seemed like a neat idea, but I had no clue how to use it. After a few months I revisited it, took a little time to learn it, and became quite impressed. The ability to tweak the f out of time signatures per track is amazing on its own. Velocity editing and ratcheting is great. This app is extremely flexible in how beats can be programmed.
I do wish there was the ability to build your own kit, and saving/exporting is not that intuitive, but the rest of the app still merits 5 stars.
So much fun
This app helped me get out of a creative slump!!!! I’m a former student of one of the creators of this app and I knew it would be cool, but I didn’t expect it to have so many options for saving and exporting— I can just create and save a sick pattern, export to Ableton, and manipulate clips and record even more with less effort than an entirely new Ableton project. Really awesome for those of us who are rusty with DAWs. Can’t wait to make more music!!!!!
