Love it

I like the app but 1 problem, you have to pay for the rest of the kits. Which I hate. I wish I didn’t have to pay for all of them. Although I like it♥️👍🏻

A bit of constructive criticism.

I got this app awhile ago after I went through the App Store and found this as an app to add to my collection of drum apps that I have. The little preview video took the cake for me and I had to install it. I really don’t have anything bad to say other than the audio is a bit delayed, and that is a bit frustrating, especially when you are trying to play a fill or groove and the sound doesn’t come out right away. It will for simple, 1-touch taps, but when you groove or fill it isn’t in sync with your taps. Another thing I have noticed is the first tom on the “Classic Acoustic” option is a bit weird sounding and doesn’t have much attack as the others. This is a minor thing, so I’m not too worried about it, but it is still something that I think needs fixing. Also, about the lag thing: I don’t expect for it to be super low latency, but it still does lag and that is the major thing I’m trying to address in this review.

If you can fix the above problems, great, but if not, it is your choice and this is of course only my opinion meant to help you.

2 suggestions

This app is great and I love it. Ive been using it for about 4 years now. Here is my suggestions: 1. Add another hihat. This may sound weird but you may want to add a mode where there is a hihat on the right but everything else remains the same. 2. Reverse the triggers for the hihat. Basically, make it so when you hit the hihat cymbals, it makes the closed sound and when you hit the stand, it makes the open sound. Thanks for considering!
