The app is good but would be nice to manipulate and add fills
Bought it. Can’t install it on my Pc. When it downloads & works, I’ll write a review. On my phone, it’s great. Didn’t know new beats were available until a few weeks ago. I’m sure there’s a reason, but if the beats could be broken down a little more in tempo it’d be great. Still fine as it is 👍🏼
Please don’t let my rating deter you from buying this app. This app has a ton of great beats to work with while learning. However, to gain access to the majority of what this app offers you have to drop much more money than I personally think is necessary. If I’m going to spend that much money then I will go ahead and buy a professional studio program. It’s just a few dollars more and although I might have to write my own beats it’s much more versatile. I do however highly recommend this for a great metronome and simple beats to learn and dig out new ideas. The developers of this app have done a great job but may have attached a little bit too high a price tag on its full capabilities
The train shuffle brushes are my favorite for practicing Bluegrass banjo. Although the money for the full version was well spent, a “Tap Tempo” feature would make this app beyond perfect. I would lay down more coins for that.
I like this app, but am only giving three stars because I have one big gripe with it. You pay $4 already for the app. But it limits you to tempo increments of 5 (95, 100, 105, etc.) unless you pay more money. Having increments of 1 should NOT be considered a pro feature for which you pay more. That should be a basic feature covered by $4. UPDATE: With the new update, they have remedied my complaint. The base app now allows fine tempo increments of 1. Thank you! 5 stars now.
Previously , the beats and tempos were on the same page for iPad. This made changing tempos and beats much quicker for love situations. This was awesome. Now you have to change screens to adjust beats and tempos. Pretty much useless for my situation now. Can somebody at the company please contact Me and tell me how to get the old version reinstalled on my iPad and I’ll rewrite my review about amazing customer service? Ryan Bueter 443-695-4978
I love using this app as a metronome that doesn’t make me want to bang my head against a wall. Is it not enough that I bought this app for $5? Offering monthly subscriptions for *premium beats*? Check yourself Drum Beats Plus. You’re not Spotify.
As a beginner this is helping my learning, playing and understanding beyond words ...awesome comes to mind
They charge you 3.99 for the app after loading it they tell you it is a monthly subscription based
So you spend a few bucks to scroll through 85% of the “VIP” beats that can only be used by monthly subscription (LOLOL) or by paying an additional $40 (LOLOLOLOL). Because you can’t sort your plebeian beats from the VIP Richie rich beats, it’s too annoying to use... ::scrolls and scrolls:: “oh look. I see 2 simple beats on the wrong side of the train tracks, let’s use those...”
Would love to be able to click record, And open my iphone mike. Easy Peasy.
For a paid app, there are too many basic features missing for serious musicians without having to purchasing extra features: the ability to select a tempo in increments smaller than +/-5, and the inability to filter out unpurchased add-on grooves leads to absurd "VIP" content clutter in the UI. To their credit, the developer did respond quickly, acknowledging that these were annoying issues, but that eliminating them will require subscriptions. I will be looking into Drum Genius to use instead of this app.
Great app, helps me with my practice, easy to use and so convenient
Alright, Im back with my beats! After having my library erased, ninebuzz promptly replied and now it solved my problem. Thank you!
It’s killing my battery on my iPhone 8. Battery usage says 79% of my total usage used in the last 24 hours due to background activity. I don’t know what’s going on and couldn’t fix it so I had to delete the app
This is one of my favorite apps that I use daily. There way a change in the app to offer some cool in app purchases and one of the free beats was accidentally switched to paid. I emailed the developer and they were quick to reply back telling me that it was a mistake. Great customer service!!! Highly recommend!!!
They just took a decent-sounding, simple to use drum backing app (that I already paid for) and made it unusable unless I now pay an additional $100.00 to unlock the new “VIP” features. That’s twice to cost of a full featured, top-of-the-line DAW app for a glorified metronome! How in the world are they justifying that price? Sorry guys, you just priced yourself out of business in my opinion. There are TONs of far superior drum apps out there for a fraction of the price. This WAS a cool app at less than $10.00, but there is no valid reason for it to be the most expensive music production app on the market. UPDATE - as the developer has kindly responded. I will push up to a 3 star. I might have been a little harsh. I still just do not like the idea of subscription models for apps or software. I understand the necessity in some cases, but I would be much happier to see in app content purchases. Especially in music apps. Then we could pay once for blocks of content. I purchase loops and patches and pro feature upgrades regularly in other apps. I probably don’t want to know how much I have spent on them, but I like that they are mine once purchased. I would likely pay for upgraded features and content in this app as well. But I only want to pay once to unlock each feature or set of loops. It’s fair for developers to be paid for their ongoing efforts, but IMO subscriptions are not the way to do it.
I've been teaching drums for over 40 years and have been playing for over 60 years. I have seen and used many creative ways of training drummers. Books, sheet music, hands on teaching and metronomes were all we had back in early years of my training. All of the modern technology, computers apps of this nature are wonderful tools, To help make the modern drummer the best that he can be. This app does what drum machines and metronomes always do, "Hold the drummer accountable for keeping the beat and staying in the pocket. One of the best drum machine apps out there.
As a bass player, this is exactly what I’m looking for in terms of practice and writing new bass lines. The variety of beats that comes with the purchase is pretty satisfying as well. If you want even more variety, there’s an option to purchase at a reasonable price.
This app is very simple to use! I use it to accompany my ukulele. It allows you to keep rhythms you use as favorites. Doesn't over power you.
These are weak. The jazz is particularly bad, but nothing swings. You know how your favorite drummers have a million ghost notes and groove? There is zero of that here. 100% synth drums programmed without understanding of feel or dynamics or anything slightly musical. A waste. Should have gotten an expensive coffee with that $.
When my battery was unexpectedly low, checking the Battery usage report in the settings showed Beats+ utilizing 90% with "background activity".
I’ve purchased all of the packs and love all of them. I love to challenge myself with new beats and it helps me to write songs in whole new ways. I recommend it to all my writing partners!
I'm an alligator I'm a momma-papa comin fer you
If this app allowed me to adjust the BPM by increments of one then I would have given it 5 stars. Only a handful of songs I play have the BPM in increments of 5, so I cannot use this app for the majority of songs and it does not make sense for me to switch to this app just for those songs. So this app unfortunately is useless to me. The concept is great and if there is a way to change the BPM by 1 then please let me know and I will change the rating.
Has all the beats I need or want when I sit down to play for 10 minutes or 3 hours. Ive been using it for a few years now and never had a problem. Love it.
I’m a novice guitar player and I get Bluetooth this app to my Marshall code 50 amp. I get to play along with my guitar and match the sound quality and volume. I wish there were more options for the metal genre. If they could add thrash metal and Norwegian black metal, I would enjoy this app even more. I really like that I have an option for playing blues. The more options that I have in the genre that I prefer which is rock, classic rock and the battle will make this better for me. I hope in the future you can add these packs because it beats playing to a metronome…
I put it through distortion pedals. Fun times
I hate the sound of a metronome. This app makes practicing feel more fun!
meets my beat needs
The best of the best Ive been working on my solo jazz and blues with a metronome for decades The first time I practiced with the jazz fusion and blues tracks on this app I was blown away I have finally arrived David
Exactly what I needed for practice.
Best one on the App Store. They do really need to add more though. Tired of the same ones.
The app is ok as a practice tool but I had to remove it because it was a 70% battery drain because of audio activity while not in use. Listening to me? Don't like it, don't trust it.
The app is great for something to play along with. I’d like to ask if you could add a 5/4 and 7/4 time signature. Not very common, but there are musicians out there that do like to play with these time signatures.
This thing is excellent for practicing bass lines and brings out the creativity in the musician.
Every drum pattern has a snare in it, not one Latin or ethnic beat to be found. But there is a latin jazz app in the more/app. Just what i was looking for and it was FREE!!!! Gave me goosebumps lol.
This app makes practice time very enjoyable! With a wide selection of beats and grooves, which can be played at at slow to fast tempos, and quality sounds- feels like playing with a drummer.
I bought this app and it will not load at all. Sad!
Way more fun than a metronome. It makes the process of mastering difficult passages so much more engaging. Start slow, build speed and accuracy. In addition to any other uses, this is a must have practice tool.
Everything that the five-star reviews say. Our band sometimes has to practice without the drummer, and I've always been able to find the right beat to go with a song just from the free ones, even if it sometimes took up precious group time auditioning through a few. Now I have most of my go-to beats written down in my sheet music or at least Favorited in the app. For writing, it is fun and easy to dial up a beat that is infinitely more inspiring than a metronome and won't bog down your workflow.
Bought it because I need 7/8. It doesn't have it and it is impossible to figure it out before purchase.
