Persistently Valuable

I don’t love all the sound sets, but this app really understands how beats are made. I keep coming back to it. If it ever goes AU it will be unstoppable.
I am an acoustic kind of guy...
by Enrique Raphaël Page Pérez on 2021/01/28 01:46
That being said Future Drummer surprised me tremendously, a very solid set of electronic drum kits which although not unobtainable somewhere else (whereas good drumming sounds like the ones provided on all of the other Drummer apps are pretty much unique on iOS), but a very solid product overall. At this point I’ve purchased them all because even though I have my issues with the apps the sounds are just incredible. Hopefully they can become auv3 in the future, that would put an end to like... 99% of my issues with these drummer apps. As for the rest, yeah, the cost will hurt but the sounds will heal. If you’re here, you know what you want and you probably won’t get it elsewhere on iOS.
Sounds great
by drew1319 on 2021/01/22 22:40
This is a great app. I’ve mostly used the included patterns because they’re a perfect starting point for whatever project I’m working on. Works in AUM.
All Lumbeat drum apps are essential tools / works of art
by AppQA on 2021/01/05 09:56
I cannot overpraise these products. The concept of a flexible realistic style-specific drum machine is revolutionary in itself, but it succeeds primarily because of the musical attention to detail. There is a lifetime of musical knowledge in each app. For inspiration during songwriting they can't be beat! I can't wait for the afrobeat model!

As a public school teacher, I worked to develop skills and flexibilities to utilize them within each of my students. A cardinal approach is to facilitate the student from where they are when you encounter them, to next steps on their journey, by providing models, encouragement and inspiration along their path. Across diverse fields of curriculum, part of the goal included providing opportunity for the student to experience the subject matter from perspectives within the discipline (e.g. how would a scientist pursue “scientific method” to move from observation/ curiosity through gathering data, drawing conclusions, forming hypothesis, testing its application to “discovering a principle”, or how might a writer use a particular format to express/ convey content to an audience). That is what Lumbeat does with each of its apps: provide models, each of which contains levels of interaction and variations to accommodate an encourage the user’s participation in playing/ creating music. Whether basic AND interesting accompaniment, while the user plays on another instrument or mastering the basics, intricacies and art of drumming, this and the other Lumbeat apps will provide many successful “next steps”
Simply the best
by sloanwolf on 2020/12/21 02:58
For integrating with Ableton Lumbeats apps are the best around.
Love it

An amazing concept

Works beautifully and sounds amazing! Worth every penny!!
Awesome!!!!

Love the whole series!
Splendid
by Dado on 2020/09/26 17:05
No matter how many drums app I have, I always end up using FD. Intuitive and great for live performances. No doubt one of the best drum looper on the market. That fill option super juicy;)
Another great app!
by zensteve on 2020/09/18 02:13
Super flexible, great sound sets and lots of useable beats!
Anything Lumbeat...
by Sauron+on+on on 2020/09/15 20:44
...deserves serious consideration. At first I was put off by the “by genre’ packaging of each of the Lumbeat apps. While it may be safe to make generalizations about some styles of music, it seems particularly limiting to try and make generalizations or set a definition for what “Future” musics will sound like. Well... this app knocked those concerns off of that soapbox with its flexibility. One of the perks of all Lumbeat apps is their similar interface. Learn one, and you’ll be able to swap palettes. Mixing and matching grooves from several Lumbeat apps has been to yield pleasant surprises and inspire new ideas. Maybe the use of “Future” in this app’s title isn’t pretentious in the slightest, but instead meant sincerely?
Lumbeat Rules
by K2 on 2020/09/08 04:47
Here is my honest review — I have all of the Lumbeat apps! I am a fan for life! I use all of them. They are THAT good!
A++++++++++
by sm.01 on 2020/09/02 14:12
Super drumming!
Great sounds
by Phlaagm< on 2020/08/30 16:54
Great sound bank, wish it had AUv3 compatibility though!
Totally Unique / Totally Awesome
by NoUserErrorHere! on 2020/08/23 02:39
If you&#39;re into iOS drum apps this one is Special: all the solidness of the former LumBeat apps plus a whole new universe of interactive jamming and hyper-expressive control. It sounds great, feels great and (most importantly) fuels tons of absolutely inspired beats. Update: still awesome and new sound packs = FTW!
Dope as the rest
by Mac Dramastic on 2020/08/17 18:02
All their drummer apps are amazing for starting ideas easily. I love playing my midi controller to program my own drums...but this gives me some great fills and sounds that help expand on all my crazy ideas! Great app!
Great Sounds and Grooves
by B'bba on 2020/08/14 19:07
The Lumbeat drum machines are all great, but this is my favorite. They aren’t very quick or fun to program, but the jam features are very “realistic”.
It’s cool mang

Lumbeat apps are a MUST OWN
by SYVDad on 2020/07/11 19:26
I have purchased all of the Lumbeat apps at this point. Each one is absolutely loaded with great beats and patterns. Adding to that is the ability to sync the iBassist app for an even greater sounding experience. If music generation on iPad is your thing, there is no way to go wrong with any or all of the Lumbeat apps. Highly recommended for your music toolbox.
Purdy.

Dope. It’s purdy dope.

Future Drummer is awesome
by armyofdecay on 2020/05/23 18:32
I got rock drummer and ibassist. they were so great i bought soft drummer. that was so amazing i bought future drummer. its very helpful to have the apps and banks of sounds in separate apps.
Finally free of piano rolls and daw style drum programming!
by Dj Jiggz on 2020/05/17 11:22
It took me quite a while to get past the price simply because apps that I thought were similar let me down a lot. But after working with it a few days (months now) I’m more than satisfied. The rhythms are actually usable and are not just random hits scattered around the sequencer. Everything in the app is customizable and can be as complicated or as simple as you want it to be. I am no drummer but I have had no problem creating intros, verses and choruses, with variation and fills. It takes a little patience but very rewarding. The grooves I have made I would never have come close to especially in terms of complexity. Im very happy to be free of piano rolls, mouse clicks and typical DAW style drum programming. The kits cover a lot of ground sound wise. It gives you five different sequencer tracks as well. I really hope this one stays maintained for a while because it definitely is not a trash app at all. Also, the dev added a few more kits recently.
The best yet!
by Crackhausen on 2020/05/14 00:33
Best lumbeat app yet! Having trouble with crashes when trying to load my own saved patterns, just tried deleting and reinstallingeven better on ipads, thankyou Very Much look forward to more lumbeat apps cant wait for next update, more comprehensive midi support would get a lot of use ;)
Awesome drums for all kinds of work
by tritonman 2 on 2020/04/24 15:38
It’s so easy and quick to come up with new sounds and pattern variations that all sound spectacularly original and appealing. Luis is always improving upon and coming up with great updates, keeping everything working smoothly and upgrading with new features. Some of the best drum apps on the iOS platform imo.
Works with many Genres
by LinearLineman on 2020/04/22 03:04
I love Luis’ apps, but this was a surprise in that it is one of his most versatile. Great for avant- jazz especially. Great kits.
Steady grooves...
by Solo's Dad on 2020/04/12 19:41
It has enough versatility for me to get lots of different ideas out.

I’ve been slowly collecting them all. This will not disappoint. It’s a super intelligent improvising groove machine! Superb.
Mann of The Hour
by Cliff digital on 2019/12/15 06:07
I love future drummer. This app is user-friendly with a nice amount of sounds. You can quickly get to music-making and crave out ideas on the fly. The interface is great everything is in your face and you&#39;re able to move quickly switching the tempos kicks, drum snare&#39;s, etc. Bring on more sounds!

Future Drummer is for sure my fave drum app hands down.
Better and better each time !
by ou_la_blank on 2019/10/26 15:46
Luis has a formula with his drum apps that keep getting better with each release , plus he keeps up with updates . So I can for the most part assure you that if you find an aspect you don&#39;t like , it will be dealt with and updated !!!!! Right , on!!!!!!!!!!,, Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing value. Ableton Link Enabled
by Snipe writer on 2019/10/18 16:22
This is great. I apologize if a left a bad review somewhere; for some reason when I first downloaded, I was having problems with Link. Turned out the issue was with me not this great app.
Great app

The best ever drum machine

by Stick Martin on 2019/10/10 19:55
This app is really, really great. All the apps in this series are. The jam features and fill are super realistic and this app has made my at home guitar practice way more fun.
This one is my favorite
by Lazy Fifi on 2019/08/15 23:13
All the Lumbeat apps are amazing and fun, but this one is probably my favorite due to its Live Mode. It makes it feel more like an instrument than a drum machine.
So so so good

So good
Worth the dough
by Nicknamed Just Joshin' on 2019/08/10 13:15
I’ve been got a small fortune invest in iPad music apps. There always seemed to be a lackluster selection for the percussive sections as far as creativity. Honestly up until now I would argue that GarageBand’s sequencer was as good or better than any app available. Of course I had somehow missed this developer named Luis’ apps but man these things are awesome. Tons of fun, great sounds, patterns for those times you have a melodic itch you wanna jump straight into, and patterns that are thoughtfully selected/created that will inspire you from the many corners of electronic music. Obviously, you can make anything you like from scratch as well. So far, very impressed. Will update if I run into anything worth noting but I have a feeling this is a well polished machine and there won’t be many issues. All of Luis’ apps are among the best in the iPad music world for rhythm. It’s worth it to save your money to get one of his apps rather than 3 more of the same synths or effects. I suggest this because he was able to combine a little of everything into this one I feel like it’s the least commitment to a certain sound/genre for the price and will give you an idea of if these apps are for you. Anyhow really nice app! Recommended for sure
Great improv tool

A Great App
by teirra996 on 2019/06/27 05:28
I’m enjoying this app, it’s great for someone like me who isn’t a drummer.
Disappointed
by housemachine on 2019/06/09 05:37
Lack of quality sounds. Needs a sample import and sound tweaking options. Overpriced.
Love this app!!!

Loving the simplicity, its a great tool to help me get a quick start and vibe going. One of my go to apps
Great fun!
by Brentv3 on 2019/04/20 16:46
One useful tool for this app from your other drum apps that could be handy is a filter or inter app pattern transfers
Great fun!

Intelligent Drumming
by iliveinsideatesseract on 2019/03/05 17:44
Can be thought of as a futuristic drum machine both musically and historically. Lumbeat’s best in class AI drummer and stellar sound that comes with kits from vintage to modern, all sequencable traditionally.
Some great sounds, great beats. Recommend it for any iPad producer.
by jlbenj01 on 2019/02/10 20:56
Great sounds, great beats, lots of flexibility to create your own. Recommend for any iPad producer.
Great practice drum box
by wpfhoehdeobwow on 2018/12/28 06:20
Good tool for to getting more practice time in. The jam function gives basic patterns just enough flare to forget your listening to a loop. I would like to see a few samples that were more groove focus for this style, like vocal chops or reverb blips so you could program to get a mock pumping sound since we can not add delay to one drum. I really do enjoy this app; I am just kinda Jones’n for more.
Incredible
by Shreeswifty on 2018/11/07 21:21
This app is incredible. Best drum app (along with elastic drums) I have ever used. Syncs to clock and external midi too.
Professional quality drums
by Moneypuppet on 2018/11/07 12:48
I use four of your drum apps on my gig and they absolutely enhance and make my show better. The sounds on all of your apps are amazing. The interface is fantastic. I have recommended your apps to many working musicians. Thank you for another awesome product
Good time!
by Ruthlessmama on 2018/09/15 23:47
Havin’ a lot of fun jammin with this one! Gonna have to try a couple more! :)
Xcellent drum box

Solid needs a lil more time in the oven tho. Needs some bug removal
a lot of fun, quality groove
by Audiophile31441 on 2018/08/26 13:58
definitely enjoying the versatility of this app. dj with it, produce with it, get inspired, its awesome. one unexpected use I&#39;ve found it great for is for studying. turn it on auto and it will go forever. enjoy!
MY Go TO App For Beats And Grooves
by screenplay85 on 2018/08/17 00:01
Mr Luis Martinez Continues to push the creative app world with his out of this realm drum machines. Played a major Dj set with Rock,Future And Brazilian Drum machine and the crowd really enjoyed the different aspects of drums playing off one another. Amazing apps Luis,keep creating and innovating. AJ
Cool
by Mad@Appstore on 2018/08/04 13:50
No straightforward way to control BeatMaker 3 which is why I got it but otherwise solid.
Future Drummer app is awesome!
by love2bjammin on 2018/08/04 01:08
It will give me lots of fantastic beats now and in to the future. Love it!
Super Fun!
by JVS Maschine on 2018/08/01 21:39
So glad I got this app! Great fun to play with and inspirational! Gets me away from trying to program beats and concentrate on playing my music.
The Best Out There

Great for electronic drums sounds
by Rato1244 on 2018/07/19 02:15
First I am a drummer and if you want natural sounding drums than I highly recommend all of this developers drum apps. They give you excellent feel and are highly customizable, you can spend hours crafting the perfect groove and patterns for your projects! If you need high quality drums for your projects then look no further. Just buy it!
Great

Wow I love this app. It complements my Pro studio gear. It’s my secret weapon when I need a beat, inspiration or to jam out sometimes. I use this app as one of my go to song writing tool. I love Future Drummer 🤗
Great app, only one wish
by Nick45689143 on 2018/05/06 00:27
This is a quality app with a lot of nice features and it is fairly priced. I always use this app and I don’t want go back to use other drums app. I wish had midi synch for live use with my hardware. Ableton link is no as responsive as midi synch. I highly recommend this app.
Revolutionary
by odd* on 2018/05/02 03:09
...at least for me! I am a synthesist but by no means a drummer. I can come up with a basic beat that fits a song, but repeating it forever makes that song sound sterile and I&#39;m simply too lazy to go program a bunch of fills to make it more interesting. Enter Future Drummer...it makes my tracks come ALIVE! Highly recommended...
Very fun!
by AlleycatLA on 2018/04/23 04:09
This app is unlike any of my other drum apps. Now I’m going to have to look at other Luis Martinez drummer apps!
Nice

by JamHagans on 2018/01/22 18:58
I have most of his drum apps and have found them very useful, easy to program, or use very good preprogrammed patterns - i have owned a lot of drum machines that cost a lot more but were much less useful - and to have a drum machine w/ you at all times when ideas strike = priceless! Cheers
Surprised!
by b.eats.z on 2018/01/14 10:04
I have pretty much all of the lumbeat apps and they always exceed my expectations. I never thought I’d download FD because I couldn’t see the use of an automated electronic drum machine for my workflow, but then I realized I can program it exactly how I want and then let it jam for amazing results. The results have been amazing.

Even if you aren’t a drummer, this app is a no Brainer to get a nice groove going. And if you do want to use your Brain, the editing/creation schemes lumbeat has given us is a pleasure to use! Have no problem in investing in more lumbeat drum apps. Great work

As a public school teacher, I worked to develop skills and flexibilities to utilize them within each of my students. A cardinal approach is to facilitate the student from where they are when you encounter them, to next steps on their journey, by providing models, encouragement and inspiration along their path. Across diverse fields of curriculum, part of the goal included providing opportunity for the student to experience the subject matter from perspectives within the discipline (e.g. how would a scientist pursue “scientific method” to move from observation/ curiosity through gathering data, drawing conclusions, forming hypothesis, testing its application to “discovering a principle”, or how might a writer use a particular format to express/ convey content to an audience). That is what Lumbeat does with each of its apps: provide models, each of which contains levels of interaction and variations to accommodate an encourage the user’s participation in playing/ creating music.

by HouseOfHomuth on 2018/01/01 13:31
All of Luis’ apps are pretty great, and particularly for musicians that play other instruments (but not drums) and would have trouble programming an original drum beat using either finger tapping or a piano roll. I particularly love the randomize option (the pair of dice) to come up with a quick, original idea that you can tweak further on the editing screen if you like. As with all of these apps, it’d be nice to have just a few more instruments to control, but it’s a great tool to get to work and start creating music!
I am an acoustic kind of guy...
by Enrique Raphaël Page Pérez on 2021/01/28 01:46
That being said Future Drummer surprised me tremendously, a very solid set of electronic drum kits which although not unobtainable somewhere else (whereas good drumming sounds like the ones provided on all of the other Drummer apps are pretty much unique on iOS), but a very solid product overall. At this point I’ve purchased them all because even though I have my issues with the apps the sounds are just incredible. Hopefully they can become auv3 in the future, that would put an end to like... 99% of my issues with these drummer apps. As for the rest, yeah, the cost will hurt but the sounds will heal. If you’re here, you know what you want and you probably won’t get it elsewhere on iOS.
Great for electronic drums sounds
by Rato1244 on 2018/07/19 02:15
First I am a drummer and if you want natural sounding drums than I highly recommend all of this developers drum apps. They give you excellent feel and are highly customizable, you can spend hours crafting the perfect groove and patterns for your projects! If you need high quality drums for your projects then look no further. Just buy it!
Lumbeat apps are a MUST OWN
by SYVDad on 2020/07/11 19:26
I have purchased all of the Lumbeat apps at this point. Each one is absolutely loaded with great beats and patterns. Adding to that is the ability to sync the iBassist app for an even greater sounding experience. If music generation on iPad is your thing, there is no way to go wrong with any or all of the Lumbeat apps. Highly recommended for your music toolbox.
All Lumbeat drum apps are essential tools / works of art
by AppQA on 2021/01/05 09:56
I cannot overpraise these products. The concept of a flexible realistic style-specific drum machine is revolutionary in itself, but it succeeds primarily because of the musical attention to detail. There is a lifetime of musical knowledge in each app. For inspiration during songwriting they can&#39;t be beat! I can&#39;t wait for the afrobeat model!
Awesome drums for all kinds of work
by tritonman 2 on 2020/04/24 15:38
It’s so easy and quick to come up with new sounds and pattern variations that all sound spectacularly original and appealing. Luis is always improving upon and coming up with great updates, keeping everything working smoothly and upgrading with new features. Some of the best drum apps on the iOS platform imo.
Mann of The Hour
by Cliff digital on 2019/12/15 06:07
I love future drummer. This app is user-friendly with a nice amount of sounds. You can quickly get to music-making and crave out ideas on the fly. The interface is great everything is in your face and you&#39;re able to move quickly switching the tempos kicks, drum snare&#39;s, etc. Bring on more sounds!
The best yet!
by Crackhausen on 2020/05/14 00:33
Best lumbeat app yet! Having trouble with crashes when trying to load my own saved patterns, just tried deleting and reinstallingeven better on ipads, thankyou Very Much look forward to more lumbeat apps cant wait for next update, more comprehensive midi support would get a lot of use ;)
Great practice drum box
by wpfhoehdeobwow on 2018/12/28 06:20
Good tool for to getting more practice time in. The jam function gives basic patterns just enough flare to forget your listening to a loop. I would like to see a few samples that were more groove focus for this style, like vocal chops or reverb blips so you could program to get a mock pumping sound since we can not add delay to one drum. I really do enjoy this app; I am just kinda Jones’n for more.
Better and better each time !
by ou_la_blank on 2019/10/26 15:46
Luis has a formula with his drum apps that keep getting better with each release , plus he keeps up with updates . So I can for the most part assure you that if you find an aspect you don&#39;t like , it will be dealt with and updated !!!!! Right , on!!!!!!!!!!,, Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Professional quality drums
by Moneypuppet on 2018/11/07 12:48
I use four of your drum apps on my gig and they absolutely enhance and make my show better. The sounds on all of your apps are amazing. The interface is fantastic. I have recommended your apps to many working musicians. Thank you for another awesome product
Great app, only one wish
by Nick45689143 on 2018/05/06 00:27
This is a quality app with a lot of nice features and it is fairly priced. I always use this app and I don’t want go back to use other drums app. I wish had midi synch for live use with my hardware. Ableton link is no as responsive as midi synch. I highly recommend this app.
Future Drummer is great!
by Brock_Harris on 2017/11/04 22:37
I&#39;ve owned Future Drummer since it came out, the first paid app I purchased from this developer. For the price, I would recommend utilizing this along with routing apps to your Mac desktop DAW. It&#39;s cheaper for the amount of product you get with a vst, more intuitive, and fun to create with!
What an amazing app!
by scentline on 2018/02/10 16:57
I love all of your groove app series! 😃❤️❤️❤️ Very intuitive interface, great sound, lots of sound! It’s perfect for practice and getting idea for new songs! Hope you can make Jazz Drummer app (Swing, Hard Bop, New Orleans, ECM, etc) and Odd Meter Drummer app (More than just 9 simple beats on your Super Metronome app) as well! Happy Groovy Day! 😊🎶🎶🎶🥁🥁🥁
Totally Unique / Totally Awesome
by NoUserErrorHere! on 2020/08/23 02:39
If you&#39;re into iOS drum apps this one is Special: all the solidness of the former LumBeat apps plus a whole new universe of interactive jamming and hyper-expressive control. It sounds great, feels great and (most importantly) fuels tons of absolutely inspired beats. Update: still awesome and new sound packs = FTW!
Revolutionary
by odd* on 2018/05/02 03:09
...at least for me! I am a synthesist but by no means a drummer. I can come up with a basic beat that fits a song, but repeating it forever makes that song sound sterile and I&#39;m simply too lazy to go program a bunch of fills to make it more interesting. Enter Future Drummer...it makes my tracks come ALIVE! Highly recommended...
Where has this app been all my life
by MitchANR on 2017/09/13 19:26
I have not bought any of these drummer apps until today. Boy, have I been missing out. Instant grooves, awesome sounds, fun tweaks. Midi out to other apps. Great live performance options.
Surprised!
by b.eats.z on 2018/01/14 10:04
I have pretty much all of the lumbeat apps and they always exceed my expectations. I never thought I’d download FD because I couldn’t see the use of an automated electronic drum machine for my workflow, but then I realized I can program it exactly how I want and then let it jam for amazing results. The results have been amazing.
All very useful
by JamHagans on 2018/01/22 18:58
I have most of his drum apps and have found them very useful, easy to program, or use very good preprogrammed patterns - i have owned a lot of drum machines that cost a lot more but were much less useful - and to have a drum machine w/ you at all times when ideas strike = priceless! Cheers
Amazing value. Ableton Link Enabled
by Snipe writer on 2019/10/18 16:22
This is great. I apologize if a left a bad review somewhere; for some reason when I first downloaded, I was having problems with Link. Turned out the issue was with me not this great app.
No Brainer
by ~B1GS~ on 2018/01/11 01:35
Even if you aren’t a drummer, this app is a no Brainer to get a nice groove going. And if you do want to use your Brain, the editing/creation schemes lumbeat has given us is a pleasure to use! Have no problem in investing in more lumbeat drum apps. Great work
Dope as the rest
by Mac Dramastic on 2020/08/17 18:02
All their drummer apps are amazing for starting ideas easily. I love playing my midi controller to program my own drums...but this gives me some great fills and sounds that help expand on all my crazy ideas! Great app!
a lot of fun, quality groove
by Audiophile31441 on 2018/08/26 13:58
definitely enjoying the versatility of this app. dj with it, produce with it, get inspired, its awesome. one unexpected use I&#39;ve found it great for is for studying. turn it on auto and it will go forever. enjoy!
The best current standard drum sequencer
by SebastianTheSeeker on 2017/08/17 04:20
Instant drums if you dont know what you are doing, and incredible tweakability if you do. Well worth the prce. Great sounds. Only thing missing is importing your own sounds.
Perfect right off the bat in the mix.
by TheICHTHUS on 2018/01/11 01:12
When I am working up something quick, I love how FD just sits nicely in the mix I already have going. Lots of great beats in here. Sounds fantastic!
Latest and greatest
by DeltaIXLine on 2017/09/20 21:36
I just added this to my list of iOS drum machine and I really enjoy the changes you can make and I really love the fills ....this will be a game changing for me
Splendid
by Dado on 2020/09/26 17:05
No matter how many drums app I have, I always end up using FD. Intuitive and great for live performances. No doubt one of the best drum looper on the market. That fill option super juicy;)
A producers best friend
by The Garvey Group Inc. on 2018/05/11 17:00
Wow I love this app. It complements my Pro studio gear. It’s my secret weapon when I need a beat, inspiration or to jam out sometimes. I use this app as one of my go to song writing tool. I love Future Drummer 🤗
Sounds great
by drew1319 on 2021/01/22 22:40
This is a great app. I’ve mostly used the included patterns because they’re a perfect starting point for whatever project I’m working on. Works in AUM.
Future Drummer is awesome
by armyofdecay on 2020/05/23 18:32
I got rock drummer and ibassist. they were so great i bought soft drummer. that was so amazing i bought future drummer. its very helpful to have the apps and banks of sounds in separate apps.
This one is my favorite
by Lazy Fifi on 2019/08/15 23:13
All the Lumbeat apps are amazing and fun, but this one is probably my favorite due to its Live Mode. It makes it feel more like an instrument than a drum machine.
Fire your drummer
by Stick Martin on 2019/10/10 19:55
This app is really, really great. All the apps in this series are. The jam features and fill are super realistic and this app has made my at home guitar practice way more fun.
Great Sounds and Grooves
by B'bba on 2020/08/14 19:07
The Lumbeat drum machines are all great, but this is my favorite. They aren’t very quick or fun to program, but the jam features are very “realistic”.
Super Fun!
by JVS Maschine on 2018/08/01 21:39
So glad I got this app! Great fun to play with and inspirational! Gets me away from trying to program beats and concentrate on playing my music.
Great sounds
by Phlaagm< on 2020/08/30 16:54
Great sound bank, wish it had AUv3 compatibility though!
Intelligent Drumming
by iliveinsideatesseract on 2019/03/05 17:44
Can be thought of as a futuristic drum machine both musically and historically. Lumbeat’s best in class AI drummer and stellar sound that comes with kits from vintage to modern, all sequencable traditionally.
The Best Out There
by drum-atic on 2018/07/31 21:24
FD has set the bar for drum machine apps. Easy functionality, great sounds, innovative beats and plenty of room for creativity.
Seems cool so far
by rnrmusic on 2019/04/23 23:56
Loving the simplicity, its a great tool to help me get a quick start and vibe going. One of my go to apps
Another great app from this developer!
by Vaultnaemsae on 2019/12/22 11:20
I’ve been slowly collecting them all. This will not disappoint. It’s a super intelligent improvising groove machine! Superb.
Some great sounds, great beats. Recommend it for any iPad producer.
by jlbenj01 on 2019/02/10 20:56
Great sounds, great beats, lots of flexibility to create your own. Recommend for any iPad producer.

Great sound selection. I have several from the same developer. All good!

This app is unlike any of my other drum apps. Now I’m going to have to look at other Luis Martinez drummer apps!
An amazing concept

Persistently Valuable
by WmFerguson on 2021/02/15 18:43
I don’t love all the sound sets, but this app really understands how beats are made. I keep coming back to it. If it ever goes AU it will be unstoppable.

Playin’ at music with a Pro’ sittin’ in
by Stars Warrented on 2021/01/03 13:40
As a public school teacher, I worked to develop skills and flexibilities to utilize them within each of my students. A cardinal approach is to facilitate the student from where they are when you encounter them, to next steps on their journey, by providing models, encouragement and inspiration along their path. Across diverse fields of curriculum, part of the goal included providing opportunity for the student to experience the subject matter from perspectives within the discipline (e.g. how would a scientist pursue “scientific method” to move from observation/ curiosity through gathering data, drawing conclusions, forming hypothesis, testing its application to “discovering a principle”, or how might a writer use a particular format to express/ convey content to an audience). That is what Lumbeat does with each of its apps: provide models, each of which contains levels of interaction and variations to accommodate an encourage the user’s participation in playing/ creating music. Whether basic AND interesting accompaniment, while the user plays on another instrument or mastering the basics, intricacies and art of drumming, this and the other Lumbeat apps will provide many successful “next steps”
Simply the best
by sloanwolf on 2020/12/21 02:58

Anything Lumbeat...
by Sauron+on+on on 2020/09/15 20:44
...deserves serious consideration. At first I was put off by the “by genre’ packaging of each of the Lumbeat apps. While it may be safe to make generalizations about some styles of music, it seems particularly limiting to try and make generalizations or set a definition for what “Future” musics will sound like. Well... this app knocked those concerns off of that soapbox with its flexibility. One of the perks of all Lumbeat apps is their similar interface. Learn one, and you’ll be able to swap palettes. Mixing and matching grooves from several Lumbeat apps has been to yield pleasant surprises and inspire new ideas. Maybe the use of “Future” in this app’s title isn’t pretentious in the slightest, but instead meant sincerely?

Finally free of piano rolls and daw style drum programming!
by Dj Jiggz on 2020/05/17 11:22
It took me quite a while to get past the price simply because apps that I thought were similar let me down a lot. But after working with it a few days (months now) I’m more than satisfied. The rhythms are actually usable and are not just random hits scattered around the sequencer. Everything in the app is customizable and can be as complicated or as simple as you want it to be. I am no drummer but I have had no problem creating intros, verses and choruses, with variation and fills. It takes a little patience but very rewarding. The grooves I have made I would never have come close to especially in terms of complexity. Im very happy to be free of piano rolls, mouse clicks and typical DAW style drum programming. The kits cover a lot of ground sound wise. It gives you five different sequencer tracks as well. I really hope this one stays maintained for a while because it definitely is not a trash app at all. Also, the dev added a few more kits recently.
The best yet!

by Nicknamed Just Joshin' on 2019/08/10 13:15
I’ve been got a small fortune invest in iPad music apps. There always seemed to be a lackluster selection for the percussive sections as far as creativity. Honestly up until now I would argue that GarageBand’s sequencer was as good or better than any app available. Of course I had somehow missed this developer named Luis’ apps but man these things are awesome. Tons of fun, great sounds, patterns for those times you have a melodic itch you wanna jump straight into, and patterns that are thoughtfully selected/created that will inspire you from the many corners of electronic music. Obviously, you can make anything you like from scratch as well. So far, very impressed. Will update if I run into anything worth noting but I have a feeling this is a well polished machine and there won’t be many issues. All of Luis’ apps are among the best in the iPad music world for rhythm. It’s worth it to save your money to get one of his apps rather than 3 more of the same synths or effects. I suggest this because he was able to combine a little of everything into this one I feel like it’s the least commitment to a certain sound/genre for the price and will give you an idea of if these apps are for you. Anyhow really nice app! Recommended for sure
Great improv tool

A Great App
by teirra996 on 2019/06/27 05:28
I’m enjoying this app, it’s great for someone like me who isn’t a drummer.
Disappointed
by housemachine on 2019/06/09 05:37
Lack of quality sounds. Needs a sample import and sound tweaking options. Overpriced.
Love this app!!!

All the lumbeat apps

Loving the simplicity, its a great tool to help me get a quick start and vibe going. One of my go to apps
Great fun!
by Brentv3 on 2019/04/20 16:46
One useful tool for this app from your other drum apps that could be handy is a filter or inter app pattern transfers
Great fun!

Intelligent Drumming
by iliveinsideatesseract on 2019/03/05 17:44
Can be thought of as a futuristic drum machine both musically and historically. Lumbeat’s best in class AI drummer and stellar sound that comes with kits from vintage to modern, all sequencable traditionally.
Some great sounds, great beats. Recommend it for any iPad producer.
by jlbenj01 on 2019/02/10 20:56
Great sounds, great beats, lots of flexibility to create your own. Recommend for any iPad producer.
Great practice drum box
by wpfhoehdeobwow on 2018/12/28 06:20
Good tool for to getting more practice time in. The jam function gives basic patterns just enough flare to forget your listening to a loop. I would like to see a few samples that were more groove focus for this style, like vocal chops or reverb blips so you could program to get a mock pumping sound since we can not add delay to one drum. I really do enjoy this app; I am just kinda Jones’n for more.
Incredible
by Shreeswifty on 2018/11/07 21:21
This app is incredible. Best drum app (along with elastic drums) I have ever used. Syncs to clock and external midi too.
Professional quality drums
by Moneypuppet on 2018/11/07 12:48
I use four of your drum apps on my gig and they absolutely enhance and make my show better. The sounds on all of your apps are amazing. The interface is fantastic. I have recommended your apps to many working musicians. Thank you for another awesome product
Good time!
by Ruthlessmama on 2018/09/15 23:47
Havin’ a lot of fun jammin with this one! Gonna have to try a couple more! :)

MY Go TO App For Beats And Grooves
by screenplay85 on 2018/08/17 00:01
Mr Luis Martinez Continues to push the creative app world with his out of this realm drum machines. Played a major Dj set with Rock,Future And Brazilian Drum machine and the crowd really enjoyed the different aspects of drums playing off one another. Amazing apps Luis,keep creating and innovating. AJ
Cool
by Mad@Appstore on 2018/08/04 13:50
No straightforward way to control BeatMaker 3 which is why I got it but otherwise solid.

It will give me lots of fantastic beats now and in to the future. Love it!

by Rato1244 on 2018/07/19 02:15
First I am a drummer and if you want natural sounding drums than I highly recommend all of this developers drum apps. They give you excellent feel and are highly customizable, you can spend hours crafting the perfect groove and patterns for your projects! If you need high quality drums for your projects then look no further. Just buy it!
Great

Wow I love this app. It complements my Pro studio gear. It’s my secret weapon when I need a beat, inspiration or to jam out sometimes. I use this app as one of my go to song writing tool. I love Future Drummer 🤗
Great app, only one wish
by Nick45689143 on 2018/05/06 00:27
This is a quality app with a lot of nice features and it is fairly priced. I always use this app and I don’t want go back to use other drums app. I wish had midi synch for live use with my hardware. Ableton link is no as responsive as midi synch. I highly recommend this app.
Revolutionary
by odd* on 2018/05/02 03:09
...at least for me! I am a synthesist but by no means a drummer. I can come up with a basic beat that fits a song, but repeating it forever makes that song sound sterile and I&#39;m simply too lazy to go program a bunch of fills to make it more interesting. Enter Future Drummer...it makes my tracks come ALIVE! Highly recommended...
Very fun!
by AlleycatLA on 2018/04/23 04:09
This app is unlike any of my other drum apps. Now I’m going to have to look at other Luis Martinez drummer apps!

Hope you can make Jazz Drummer app (Swing, Hard Bop, New Orleans, ECM, etc) and Odd Meter Drummer app (More than just 9 simple beats on your Super Metronome app) as well! Happy Groovy Day! 😊🎶🎶🎶🥁🥁🥁

All very useful
by JamHagans on 2018/01/22 18:58
I have most of his drum apps and have found them very useful, easy to program, or use very good preprogrammed patterns - i have owned a lot of drum machines that cost a lot more but were much less useful - and to have a drum machine w/ you at all times when ideas strike = priceless! Cheers
Surprised!
by b.eats.z on 2018/01/14 10:04
I have pretty much all of the lumbeat apps and they always exceed my expectations. I never thought I’d download FD because I couldn’t see the use of an automated electronic drum machine for my workflow, but then I realized I can program it exactly how I want and then let it jam for amazing results. The results have been amazing.

Even if you aren’t a drummer, this app is a no Brainer to get a nice groove going. And if you do want to use your Brain, the editing/creation schemes lumbeat has given us is a pleasure to use! Have no problem in investing in more lumbeat drum apps. Great work

Playin’ at music with a Pro’ sittin’ in
by Stars Warrented on 2021/01/03 13:40
As a public school teacher, I worked to develop skills and flexibilities to utilize them within each of my students. A cardinal approach is to facilitate the student from where they are when you encounter them, to next steps on their journey, by providing models, encouragement and inspiration along their path. Across diverse fields of curriculum, part of the goal included providing opportunity for the student to experience the subject matter from perspectives within the discipline (e.g. how would a scientist pursue “scientific method” to move from observation/ curiosity through gathering data, drawing conclusions, forming hypothesis, testing its application to “discovering a principle”, or how might a writer use a particular format to express/ convey content to an audience). That is what Lumbeat does with each of its apps: provide models, each of which contains levels of interaction and variations to accommodate an encourage the user’s participation in playing/ creating music. Whether basic AND interesting accompaniment, while the user plays on another instrument or mastering the basics, intricacies and art of drumming, this and the other Lumbeat apps will provide many successful “next steps”
Finally free of piano rolls and daw style drum programming!
by Dj Jiggz on 2020/05/17 11:22
It took me quite a while to get past the price simply because apps that I thought were similar let me down a lot. But after working with it a few days (months now) I’m more than satisfied. The rhythms are actually usable and are not just random hits scattered around the sequencer. Everything in the app is customizable and can be as complicated or as simple as you want it to be. I am no drummer but I have had no problem creating intros, verses and choruses, with variation and fills. It takes a little patience but very rewarding. The grooves I have made I would never have come close to especially in terms of complexity. Im very happy to be free of piano rolls, mouse clicks and typical DAW style drum programming. The kits cover a lot of ground sound wise. It gives you five different sequencer tracks as well. I really hope this one stays maintained for a while because it definitely is not a trash app at all. Also, the dev added a few more kits recently.
Anything Lumbeat...
by Sauron+on+on on 2020/09/15 20:44
...deserves serious consideration. At first I was put off by the “by genre’ packaging of each of the Lumbeat apps. While it may be safe to make generalizations about some styles of music, it seems particularly limiting to try and make generalizations or set a definition for what “Future” musics will sound like. Well... this app knocked those concerns off of that soapbox with its flexibility. One of the perks of all Lumbeat apps is their similar interface. Learn one, and you’ll be able to swap palettes. Mixing and matching grooves from several Lumbeat apps has been to yield pleasant surprises and inspire new ideas. Maybe the use of “Future” in this app’s title isn’t pretentious in the slightest, but instead meant sincerely?
Great electronic drum generator!
by HouseOfHomuth on 2018/01/01 13:31
All of Luis’ apps are pretty great, and particularly for musicians that play other instruments (but not drums) and would have trouble programming an original drum beat using either finger tapping or a piano roll. I particularly love the randomize option (the pair of dice) to come up with a quick, original idea that you can tweak further on the editing screen if you like. As with all of these apps, it’d be nice to have just a few more instruments to control, but it’s a great tool to get to work and start creating music!
I am an acoustic kind of guy...
by Enrique Raphaël Page Pérez on 2021/01/28 01:46
That being said Future Drummer surprised me tremendously, a very solid set of electronic drum kits which although not unobtainable somewhere else (whereas good drumming sounds like the ones provided on all of the other Drummer apps are pretty much unique on iOS), but a very solid product overall. At this point I’ve purchased them all because even though I have my issues with the apps the sounds are just incredible. Hopefully they can become auv3 in the future, that would put an end to like... 99% of my issues with these drummer apps. As for the rest, yeah, the cost will hurt but the sounds will heal. If you’re here, you know what you want and you probably won’t get it elsewhere on iOS.

Lumbeat apps are a MUST OWN
by SYVDad on 2020/07/11 19:26
I have purchased all of the Lumbeat apps at this point. Each one is absolutely loaded with great beats and patterns. Adding to that is the ability to sync the iBassist app for an even greater sounding experience. If music generation on iPad is your thing, there is no way to go wrong with any or all of the Lumbeat apps. Highly recommended for your music toolbox.
All Lumbeat drum apps are essential tools / works of art
by AppQA on 2021/01/05 09:56
I cannot overpraise these products. The concept of a flexible realistic style-specific drum machine is revolutionary in itself, but it succeeds primarily because of the musical attention to detail. There is a lifetime of musical knowledge in each app. For inspiration during songwriting they can&#39;t be beat! I can&#39;t wait for the afrobeat model!
Awesome drums for all kinds of work
by tritonman 2 on 2020/04/24 15:38
It’s so easy and quick to come up with new sounds and pattern variations that all sound spectacularly original and appealing. Luis is always improving upon and coming up with great updates, keeping everything working smoothly and upgrading with new features. Some of the best drum apps on the iOS platform imo.
Mann of The Hour
by Cliff digital on 2019/12/15 06:07
I love future drummer. This app is user-friendly with a nice amount of sounds. You can quickly get to music-making and crave out ideas on the fly. The interface is great everything is in your face and you&#39;re able to move quickly switching the tempos kicks, drum snare&#39;s, etc. Bring on more sounds!
The best yet!
by Crackhausen on 2020/05/14 00:33
Best lumbeat app yet! Having trouble with crashes when trying to load my own saved patterns, just tried deleting and reinstallingeven better on ipads, thankyou Very Much look forward to more lumbeat apps cant wait for next update, more comprehensive midi support would get a lot of use ;)
Great practice drum box
by wpfhoehdeobwow on 2018/12/28 06:20
Good tool for to getting more practice time in. The jam function gives basic patterns just enough flare to forget your listening to a loop. I would like to see a few samples that were more groove focus for this style, like vocal chops or reverb blips so you could program to get a mock pumping sound since we can not add delay to one drum. I really do enjoy this app; I am just kinda Jones’n for more.
Better and better each time !
by ou_la_blank on 2019/10/26 15:46
Luis has a formula with his drum apps that keep getting better with each release , plus he keeps up with updates . So I can for the most part assure you that if you find an aspect you don&#39;t like , it will be dealt with and updated !!!!! Right , on!!!!!!!!!!,, Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Future Drummer is great!
by Brock_Harris on 2017/11/04 22:37
I&#39;ve owned Future Drummer since it came out, the first paid app I purchased from this developer. For the price, I would recommend utilizing this along with routing apps to your Mac desktop DAW. It&#39;s cheaper for the amount of product you get with a vst, more intuitive, and fun to create with!
What an amazing app!

If you&#39;re into iOS drum apps this one is Special: all the solidness of the former LumBeat apps plus a whole new universe of interactive jamming and hyper-expressive control. It sounds great, feels great and (most importantly) fuels tons of absolutely inspired beats. Update: still awesome and new sound packs = FTW!

The best current standard drum sequencer
by SebastianTheSeeker on 2017/08/17 04:20
Instant drums if you dont know what you are doing, and incredible tweakability if you do. Well worth the prce. Great sounds. Only thing missing is importing your own sounds.
Perfect right off the bat in the mix.
by TheICHTHUS on 2018/01/11 01:12
When I am working up something quick, I love how FD just sits nicely in the mix I already have going. Lots of great beats in here. Sounds fantastic!
Latest and greatest
by DeltaIXLine on 2017/09/20 21:36
I just added this to my list of iOS drum machine and I really enjoy the changes you can make and I really love the fills ....this will be a game changing for me
Splendid
by Dado on 2020/09/26 17:05
No matter how many drums app I have, I always end up using FD. Intuitive and great for live performances. No doubt one of the best drum looper on the market. That fill option super juicy;)

Future Drummer is awesome
by armyofdecay on 2020/05/23 18:32
I got rock drummer and ibassist. they were so great i bought soft drummer. that was so amazing i bought future drummer. its very helpful to have the apps and banks of sounds in separate apps.
This one is my favorite
by Lazy Fifi on 2019/08/15 23:13
All the Lumbeat apps are amazing and fun, but this one is probably my favorite due to its Live Mode. It makes it feel more like an instrument than a drum machine.
Fire your drummer
by Stick Martin on 2019/10/10 19:55
This app is really, really great. All the apps in this series are. The jam features and fill are super realistic and this app has made my at home guitar practice way more fun.
Great Sounds and Grooves
by B'bba on 2020/08/14 19:07
The Lumbeat drum machines are all great, but this is my favorite. They aren’t very quick or fun to program, but the jam features are very “realistic”.
Super Fun!

Intelligent Drumming
by iliveinsideatesseract on 2019/03/05 17:44

I have many drum apps, but this one is so easy! Well Done!
Persistently Valuable
by WmFerguson on 2021/02/15 18:43
