Great Tool

Everything I have from Session Band has worked beautifully to provide a set of excellent musical tools for both study and for performance. Many of the reviews for Session Band Drums have been on the negative side. I can definitely understand this because, by itself, Session Band Drums does not offer as much as the other Session Band apps that provide drum parts, bass parts, chord parts, and much more. However, for the simple purpose I have in mind for Session Band drums, it really has provided a great tool. My recommendation is that potential users of Session Band Drums make sure, before purchasing, that they are not going to be asking too much from the app. If they want more than what Session Band Drums can provide, I recommend that they find a what they are looking for in Session Band Rock, Blues, Jazz, Country, Acoustic, Piano, etc. I hope this helps!

Useful tool

A really great tool and application for creating great drum tracks right on your iPad! Mixing my own beats is really easy and fun with this tool. The layout and design of the app makes it easy to use. If you love to create drum tracks this is the perfect tool in your arsenal!

Poor quality

There are a number of issues with this app. One, in this day and age where you can buy excellent drum loops for little money, this app is light years behind. There are a handful of fills for each profession. There is no way of knowing what pattern or fill does what. My oh have to go through each one and write it down to keep track of it. The audio quality is poor. You can hear the high hat stand or pedal squeaking. There are awful overtones from the snare on some of the tracks. Basically, if you just want a limited metronome with real drum sounds then this may work for you. If are hoping for a drum program that raises the bar and could be useful for recording on an iPad this falls way short.
