The app is designed to improve your timing on the drums. It listens to your strokes on the practice pad and provides visual feedback on your accuracy.

Measure your accuracy and visually troubleshoot your mistakes, so you can track your progress and improve over time

• Place your phone on your practice pad so it hears your drumsticks (or just clap).
• Choose an exercise.
• Tap to start the exercise.
• Change tempo by tapping BPM.

• Basics (8th notes, triplets, 16th notes)
• Rate changes
• Permutations
• ... or create your own in the editor!

What’s New

Version 4.0

A rewritten audio engine brings a much more enjoyable experience. The app hears more of your strokes and much less of the background noise or the metronome. Ticking also supports wireless headsets now (tested with AirPods) and despite their latency it's still quite accurate.

Give it a try and let us know how it feels :)

Simple app that does just what it says. I struggle with consistency in my timing and this is helping to get it under control. Speaker capture function works well when placed on or right next to the practice pad unlike other apps I have tried. Works placing it on the snare drum as well just flip the snares off. The visual portion is a great feature that fades when hitting the right notes and the tick changes based on your consistency as well. Doesn’t meep data, but it does give you accuracy after each session. Glad I am that I found this app. Don’t know about the editing feature, not even sure I will mess with it, because if I have any to learn other routines I will just write them out and use the metronome.

I love ticking! It helps me with my speed and tempo when I start play drums. One thing I recommend is to having to put your device on the drum pad because it falls off easily when you play, so maybe have better sensors of what you’re playing from a farther distance.

Good, but can’t edit metronome sounds.

I like this app and it’s simplicity. It does what it says it does. It looks nice and functions very well. What I don’t like is that you cannot edit the metronome sounds nor time signature. It would be helpful to be able to dictate the time signature and sub divisions of the metronome. You can pay for the ability to edit or create permutations, but I don’t know how well this works without being able to edit the metronome sounds. Thanks
