☆ Universal Taiko Drumms using Ratatap Drums' cutting edge engine! ☆

The harder you hit the drums, the louder they sound. Swirl your finger around for slower or faster rolls. The drum sound varies slightly from hit to hit, just like real drums. With the fastest response time of any drum app, it feels incredibly good to play.

Choose from one of the four included taiko sets. Unlock a hidden bonus set.

☆ The harder you hit the drums, the louder they sound! A first for an iPhone app!
☆ The fastest response time -- more than 60% faster than the competition!
☆ Professionally recorded drum sounds at 44.1khz high fidelity!
☆ Natural drum rolling -- the faster you drag your finger, the faster the roll!
☆ Realistic modeling of drum strikes so drum rolls blend and repeat hits don't sound like machine guns!
☆ Pitch bending depending on where you hit the drums!
☆ Try our "Dueling taikos" so two people can rock out with their own set on one device!
☆ So much more!

So much fun

Velocity, multitouch, keeps up with no lag in deep bass sound. This app is do much fun and with good headphones on, oh man - get the reverb dialed in (although not true reverb, could use some work) it sounds so real I almost feel my iPad screen soften like its leather - not kidding! I wish there were a little more tone variance not only between the different drums, but depending on distance from the center (why can't any drum apps get that down?) and last but not least --- rimshot? Anyway, overall an awesome app along with their Djembe app I'd say the most fun and realistic in this category. Especially when you consider what you get in just the free version!

Bit more zen

I was hoping for a deeper sound. Something that sounded more like Japanese drums. App works well, easy to use and does not crash if you move quickly between drum modes

Great sound and response.

In addition to settings for sensitivity in app,also check your iPad Pro touch sensitivity. May increase if pad was set too low. Would like to have edge stick tap sounds added. Reverb is a nice added touch in the app. Great for creating back tracks to use to add to midi recordings. Thanks
