Almost just works by itself.
I've been using this and a couple other Luis Martinez apps for a couple years now. My most recent buy was MidEast Drummer and I've already used it in a song. It's so easy to get a beat going that inspires you to play. I pick up my guitar or my bass and just start jamming along. Sometimes I have a specific riff and I have to alter the beat to what I need and that's easy enough. In fact setting up an entire song is a breeze. With all the apps Ableton Link enabled I can even have them all playing different parts in perfect time together.
One problem I have with many drum machines is that tapping in fills can be a real pain. Adding ghost notes and minor changes so that the beat sounds natural are also usually advanced stuff in other drum machines. All that is easy stuff with a simple slider. Tell it how complex you want it and it comes up with stuff on its own. It's amazing.
If you need a drummer and you don't have a real one available, these are easy to use, great sounding, and natural sounding apps. Only drummers will be able to tell it's not a real drummer... and even then, maybe not.
Great for composing!
Do you ever get a new idea and want to create it, before you forget it? This app is for you.
But, it’s much more than that. It’s a full drum machine and the variety of kits and affects is incredible.
By far, my most common use for this app, is to record new ideas and even complete songs. I’m a guitarist, bassist and play keyboards. My studio is jam-packed with guitars, basses, keyboards, effects, amps, mixers, computers, etc. Needless to say, I don’t have the room for a drum kit. Even if I did, I could never have every type of kit I needed. So far, with this app, I haven’t found myself in a position of not having the right kit or sound.
When inspiration strikes, the app is always ready to provide the drums. I think I’m also ready to purchase the bass app, and automate my composing even more. Guitar is my main instrument, it’s what I’m best at and that’s where I want to focus my effort.
Really Tight. Surprisingly Deep. TWSS
This app is sweet man. It does so much more than I thought when I made the purchase. Subdividing the beats is so essential. The variety of sounds and presets was a pleasant surprise. I kinda wish there was an export option built-in, but it works great with Audiobus apps.
My primary drum machine before this app was Garage Band. Rock Drum Machine might be a learning curve for some, but I found it mostly intuitive. I was skeptical of the interface too, but getting to try with the Lite version really opened my eyes. This app is worth it.
The glitch with the red bar across the screen was fixed in the last update. I emailed support about it so you’re welcome. Haha!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
