Rodney Dean ,

where is the drum machine?

I thought I was buying the drum machine software. Now I can't find the real superior drummer software. In reality the lessons should be included in the superior drummer software it self. Highly frustraded.

midiac ,


Even more impressive they were able to correct the audio issue I drew them attention to so quickly. Great customer support!!!

Unhappy purchase. ,

I want my money back.

From the name of the app it was assumed I was getting the full Superior Drummer program. Refund please.
