Ratings and Reviews
I have completely re-wrote my review!
This update makes me want to apologize for my previous review! Rhythm Pad now feels like a more serious drum app than a toy now! The developer has completely re-structured this app and it is usable now. There is a built in step sequencer that you can choose to record live to or step program. There is a metronome and a count in to start recording. With this new update I was no longer confused, the UI makes sense now and I tapped out a beat in seconds (it even quantize now) which can be exported as an audio file! The sounds are awesome and good quality which is a carry over from the original app. Great work...I would definitely recommend this app now!
**edit** after playing with the app a bit more it still has some debilitating issues. It will only quantize 1/8 and 1/16....why not go the extra mile and add 1/32 and 1/64th? The way it is now limits the types of beats you can do...good luck trying a good trap beat. Also, when you record a beat, stop to listen and press record again to add to the beat, it erases the beat events instead of adding to it, so too bad so sad if you didn’t save that beat. The developer has made some great improvements, but it still has a way to go.
Just a side note, velocity would be a nice feature and the ability to assign what pad gets reverb or not would also be cool...and the hopes of additional sound packs and AUv3 would be great 👍🏻
Developer Response ,
Hi Fretless33, I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused. I confirm this was a bug in our end. The bug has been fixed and the update is now live. Please update to the latest version of Rhythm Pad for the fix. Thanks for reporting the issue, I would appreciate if you could update your review.
Solid app with a few minor hangups.
This has gotta be one of the best finger drumming apps on the market. Well designed with a simple layout and includes all of the features you’de want in an app of this kind. The best thing about it for me is the fact that virtually everything is customizable. You can assign any sound in a given kit to any of the 8 pads to fit your layout preference. The kits themselves are decent for the most part (that being said, at least the acoustic ones. The electronic kits are awful. I just steer clear of those.) I also like the fact that access to your music library is integrated within the app and if you choose to drum along to your tracks that way you can adjust the playback volume to better hear your own deadly rhythm. Overall, one of my favorites and one of the most frequently used apps on my phone. Good work guys. Hopefully you get around to adding a few more kits in the near future, yeah?
RhythmPad is a great little Drum machine
This app has been around for long time. It is awesome that they’ve continued to upgrade this and keep it current as iOS music gets better. It really IS a great drum machine.
