Great fun (especially when a situation calls for a “drum roll, please”)!

Favorite app for when I get drunk and decide I should be able to play the drums.
Loving It!

Great sounds!
Great, one bug
by HB_NINJA_DAWG on 2017/12/17 01:10
I have had this app for +2 yrs and this is the best drum app you can have, definitely worth the $2. One problem is that now when I try yo play them, any piece will make a tapping sound and will then play what they are, for example: if I tap on the crash, it will make the tapping noise, and if I press it again, then it will play. Please fix this problem as I would like to use it more.
No volume

Really good now

Awesome updates
Good app
by Storyblue on 2017/06/17 09:07
I love this app. Could be more user friendly on the music side. I mean where you bring in your own songs. I've always had a little trouble with the quality and functionality of that part. Other than that its my favorite drum app, and i have tried all of them.
Great

Excellent and working
by Coryk001 on 2017/01/09 19:37
Works excellent now. Great update!
Much better now...
by Patlmac on 2017/01/08 01:49
Whatever went wrong with the last update has been fixed with the new one. I love this thing. If you experience any lag, there is a latency setting that you can reduce to minimum.. I think it has something to do with saving memory, but if you have plenty of memory, might as well waste it.
Great app, currently has a bug.
by MrMos3s on 2017/01/06 19:23
This latest update: The latency of audio while playing live seems better, but the animations are very jittery and playback of any recorded beat is very jittery as well. In general: Awesome drum app with lot's of customization all around. Would love a little more authentic sounding samples but they're not the worst. Also, open hihat sound should stop as soon as you press the closed hihat.
Please Fix!
by Dutch324561 on 2017/01/03 17:18
Really like the app, but the most recent update has made the app not operate correctly. Please fix!
NO SOUND!
by Appman16 on 2017/01/03 07:33
Ever since I updated to this new version, the sound doesn't work. Please fix
She works!
by Anferny_ on 2016/12/29 07:04
Hands down the BEST realistic-ish drum app on the iOS market. Definitely satisfied.
Excellent!
by Josh Kersey on 2016/12/23 23:17
This is still by far the best drumming app out there! I'm glad that you guys are continuing to bring updates to the app. I love the customization freedom this app gives you and I have just as much fun tuning my drums as I do playing them. In future updates it would be fun to have some new sounds to play with, but it's hard to complain with everything this app has going for it.
Needs Work
by jeffwalker on 2016/12/23 22:13
The drum sound is good and the app runs well, except for the recording. Recording sounds for drums is incredibly bugged and frustrating to try and work with. When I first got this app a few years ago, the sound record feature worked great.
Sick App:p
by J Dawg Fizzle Dizzle on 2016/12/22 17:02
This app is legit!!
Awesome! App to bang on drums all day!
by Patrick1007 on 2016/12/21 22:48
I was looking for something a little more in depth than GarageBands drum set was and this is what I was looking for! I wanted a few extra pieces to the drum set. Nice job! I like it so far! I can't believe there's an new update! Awesome
Unhappy with update
by MexicanaChica on 2016/12/19 06:37
I am very disappointed in this update! I can no longer play along with my music, and that was the whole point of having this app. I will delete this app if this issue is not fixed.
Great app, few glitches
by Sonic Bodhi on 2016/12/18 18:58
Finally, a customizable drum-set! I would, however, like to see the addition of some world percussion that includes timbales and tambouras, maybe some African sets, a rainstick, and number one on the list it needs a BELL TREE. I did notice when editing a built-in set, I added a maraca, and the sound started glitching really badly until I closed out the app and re-started it. That needs to be fixed ASAP. Have not used it enough times to be familiarized with all the features or if there are other glitches, but right off the bat, I give it 5 stars for the touch sensitivity and the ability to customize the kits. Features this could also use are pan and volume controls for each of the individual instruments. A kit has to be balanced realistically over the stereo field, esp. if one is going to use this in a recording. Also, the record function needs to be more involved than a basic capture device. You need to have an undo button, and the control bar needs to be bigger, the buttons are too small and too close together. It would also be nice to see a multi-track feature in this. Last, (and this is not a deal breaker) it would be nice to see more realistic animations when you hit the drums and especially the cymbals. It just looks odd when you see them flip from one side to the other with no actual movement. I will be back later when I have had more time to use it, if I need to reassess the initial rating. EDIT: I do note that when creating a custom kit, I saw that there are tablas and timbales included in the options. Would still be nice to see a bell tree and a rainstick, though, as well as a guiro and a djembe. A triangle and woodblocks would be nice, too. EDIT 2: I note there is no current support for Audiobus and/ or Interapp. This app would easily be worth 5 stars if you added support for these so they could be used in Garageband, for example. EDIT 3: Have had satisfactory use of this app all along, and with the newest update I'm not noticing any of the issues the others are complaining about. My sound isn't broken. However, I still note there's no support for Audiobus or Interapp, so my 4-star rating stands. Nothing major or earth-shattering was added to this, just some bug-fixes.
Was good but needs more
by Cg4mongo on 2016/12/18 10:38
I've enjoyed this drum app for s few years. Since this 2.01 update I've lost the ability to play over iTunes music. Also Settings still shows me at version 1.7! Either this was left or I'm unable to update.
YOU BROKE IT !!!!
by Slobro850 on 2016/12/16 22:38
You broke one of my fav apps It was great and good Really loved it Couldn't get real drums so got this Had it for a year New update yay You freakin broke all sound on it I'm very unhappy
Was Good Until Now.
by Crystalforestcavies on 2016/12/15 20:59
Since The Update The Sounds Of The Drums skipped and was broken. This app used to be the best app on my ipad 😧 😩 😢 😤 😫 😔 R.I.P
You broke the app!!!!
by IRONMAN0217 on 2016/12/15 09:03
The December update has broke the app I paid for this frikin app about 3 years ago and yea it had its bugs like with recording and sharing them so other people can listen and how if you wanted to play along with your music the musical volume couldn't be controlled separately from the drums volume so I couldn't adjust both volumes so it actually sounds like I'm playing the music would be louder then the drums. But now there is basicly no sound just a laggy echoey low scratchy sound....sounds like my head phones are broken or they aren't plugged in all the way please fix this is the best drum kit for mobile out there worth the money I spent but now it's broken honestly I think you waited to long to update and your app is mad at you ....this is your baby take care of her

Needs an update
by Eddie Güira on 2016/11/04 16:17
I'm only giving the app a 2 star rating because it hasn't been updated in a long time. Now with an iPhone 7 plus there is a noticeable lag when playing. And sound through the speakers is distorted it's only playable with headphones.
Awesome app
by chuckleblakey on 2016/10/30 15:47
Awesome app! There are still some kinks especially if you don't wear headphones but overall it's great and the sound accuracy is amazing. I wish you could flip the drums.. I'm used to having the hi hat on the right (on my phone anyway! :)
Blown away… GREAT job Mode of Expression
by Silverfinger on 2016/09/19 17:12
PLEASE UPDATE THIS APP! Audio has been messed up since iOS 7. Fuzzy sound or no sound at all.

Whenever I play those 2 rhythm interact with iPod, I always get an unclear, distorted sound on the bass drum. Please look into this. Otherwise, it's a great tool to practice. Thanks
Magnificent

Boom bam biff! Plug and play with real time, real nice sounding percussion options!! Must have when you just can't fit that big kit of yours in that small vehicle of yours. Your mates will thank you! ⚡️🔊🍕
The most function kit!
by 金牙小老虎 on 2016/02/23 16:57
I definitely like it! With R+Tap Drums now I can try every flavor of drumbeat. It makes so much more possibility! It definitely worth taking time to discover by selfs or crews on iOS!

Bang for Your Buck

Everyone knows that the iPad is great for playing games, watching movies, reading, and socializing with friends. Did you know that the iPad also has apps geared towards musicians, producers, and engineers? With hundreds of apps out there, it is hard to those apps worthy to represent the music industry. Where does one start? Start with the drum app, Ratatap. Ratatap is a drum app has many features that other drum apps have, and more without having to pay for a the features. Users must pay $2.00 to download the app. After downloading the app, users will have a variety of different kits for every genera. Plus you can create your own kit(s) with the vast amount of instruments include with in app. You can also record and play back drum beats you created. For $2.00, it's hard to say no to this powerful drum app.
You broke the app!!!!
by IRONMAN0217 on 2016/12/15 09:03
The December update has broke the app I paid for this frikin app about 3 years ago and yea it had its bugs like with recording and sharing them so other people can listen and how if you wanted to play along with your music the musical volume couldn't be controlled separately from the drums volume so I couldn't adjust both volumes so it actually sounds like I'm playing the music would be louder then the drums. But now there is basicly no sound just a laggy echoey low scratchy sound....sounds like my head phones are broken or they aren't plugged in all the way please fix this is the best drum kit for mobile out there worth the money I spent but now it's broken honestly I think you waited to long to update and your app is mad at you ....this is your baby take care of her
Sound is good, but UX and features put it way out front
by imthemobileguru on 2014/12/21 01:03
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Best drum app on the store, as long as the sound isn't the most important metric. Customizability, iPod integration, drum set engineering including type, size, volume, pitch... and then saving the drumset, sound tweaking, and special effects/animation put this application so far out in front that it could have been a fart drum app and still have been good. Some of stock sets sound a little tinny, more specifically the bass drums. The app claims the output volume is in direct proportion to how hard you tap the skin....and delivers.....sometimes. Also, could have included a strike outline so users could have a better idea where exactly to hit the skin, especially the rim shot. The biggest disappointment is there isn't an option to change the spark animations into something else like say.....notes, or butterflies....or maybe some blood or smoke or lightning. Fix a few shortcomings and the app gets 5 stars......until then it gets 4......nah...I'm not going to bother coming back. It's good enough as deployed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Not so much...
by ArcadiaStudios on 2011/06/17 16:16
Based on all of the reviews, I thought I'd love this... I don't. Despite the claims for 10 kits -- or whatever -- there's really only one rock kit. . . and it's sounds are not great: too much reverb, not much difference in pitch among the toms, and the cymbals are, for me, oddly positioned (with the ride set between a splash and a crash). While you can do some editing of the kits, there's nothing you can do if you don't like *any* of the sounds. Playability is also a concern: it's very difficult to get anything like an even sound from, say, the hi-hats; one tap can generate a loud sound, then a similar tap can be almost silent. Finally, the spacing of the kits on the screen is not great. No real kit could be set up like this or you'd be smacking a cymbal when you meant to hit a tom or you'd hit the way-oversize cowbell when you meant to hit a hi-hat. Just feels like a wasted $1.99, since I'll happily stick with the Drums! app and the drums in GarageBand for iPad.

by Ultimate030 on 2012/10/01 05:18
The things I would like to see changed are 1. Make the rim shot easier to hit 2. Move the tap menu from the bottom 3. Gets slow and laggy when fooling around with the recording and other various menu options 4. Option to rearrange default drums 5. I would like to see better dynamics 6. Have metronome options to have one tape or multiple 7. Be able to record the music that your playing to 8. Be able to start with or without metronome while recording 9. Stability issues. 10. When recording stop it from saving everything when you stop recording. Other then that it's great
Best yet
by transcendentalaccidentalism on 2012/02/05 05:04
I've been through a few finger drum apps and I think I'm done looking for the right one. For me ... the best thing about this app is the ability to size, send front/back, and essentially move your saved custom kit however it best fits your fingers. I got long fingers and most of these standard drum sets just feel awkward - the ability to move, reshape, resize, all that makes for a much more natural/custom experience. Like most apps, you can get a little lost in time as you fine-tune and experiment, but I'd put this one on par with say ... a moog app -- possibilities are endless. Love it! I dumped the other 2 I had wasted iTunes credit on - my bad.
Excellent
by Aircavmedic on 2012/03/17 03:39
This is about as good as it is going to get if you want a drum set on you iPhone or iPad. There are many built in sets, as well as bongos. You can build your own sets, change drum positions, sounds etc. yes, we all like free, but somebody built & programmed it. Pay the money. If you like their free products, this takes them & betters them. I wasted $.99 on another set that has only 2 variations. Buy 1 good one. This has acoustic, jazz, percussion set-ups. Did I mention electronic sets. This is the best & I have paid & tried others. Thank you.
Buggy with song playback
by Quantum_Farce on 2013/06/16 06:02
While the sensitivity is nice for faking closed rolling and even for a number of rudimentary chops on the kid, the synth or sampled acoustic tom sounds very 80s simmons edrums. But hey, this is a versatile app for $1.99. One glaring bug on this one is attempting to play a song in your music library and attempt to play along with it on a kit. The drum sounds go completely corrupt and sound like reverbed static. This has been noted before, so I'm wondering if this app is either back in development, or is collecting dust for another project. I think with the work these guys have put in, sound samples could be added to rival addictive, east/west, etc. Dont give up on this one yet guys!! Got a good thing going on here.
Brillant
by Masty666 on 2013/03/14 03:43
I have tried every respectable drums app available at the store, meister was my favorite once, but this is so much better that i cant even explain, not much more there to say, as it does EXACTLY what it say it does, my fav features: full customization, that is looks, position, size, AND even sound, so awesome...and number two, pressure sensitive: now i don't know how they do it as i don't think the ipad screen has that ability, but it works, and above all, it sounds great
Rich sound, fun and easy, great value!
by Andicat123 on 2011/12/23 04:58
After playing a couple of drum games, i wanted to find a drum kit that was more realistic, and was astonished to find this app, which has so many great sounds, ease of use, fun play, at such a low price. The only thing i would improve is the 'edit kit' feature, i'd like to be able to add multiple toms, or snares at once, rather than starting each addition at the root set of drums. I love the ability to arrange each element. Very realistic for virtual drums.
For the true drummers and wannabe's!
by RomarGuitar on 2012/11/01 01:23
I have so amny drum apps I refuse to take the time to count them all. But when it comes to actually playing the drums? Ratatap is the best of the bunch hands down. The sounds, the editing, create your own kits, no delays. Truly responsive to rolls, flams, etc. i like setting up 2 kits side by side and playing a whole set per hand. No exaggeration, you can use Ratatap live and leave your set at home push come to shove! Please keep updating. The best!
Very well done drum kit -- easy to generate great sounds even as a beginner
by thebirdman7 on 2011/06/25 14:32
I love this drum set. It is easy to play and is fun to full a few spare moments whenever you have time to play. Perhaps the best thing about this app is that you can configure your own drum kits and of course there are free ones included as well, some of which are a bit weird. I particularly enjoy the jazz kit. I have also put my favorite drums together in a kit and enjoy sitting on the porch playing on the weekends, entertaining myself with some cool rythyms. I highly recommend this app!
Excellent!
by Josh Kersey on 2016/12/23 23:17
This is still by far the best drumming app out there! I'm glad that you guys are continuing to bring updates to the app. I love the customization freedom this app gives you and I have just as much fun tuning my drums as I do playing them. In future updates it would be fun to have some new sounds to play with, but it's hard to complain with everything this app has going for it.
Ratatap drums
by Biocrunch on 2011/05/07 06:56
So freaking amazing, I have pretty much downloaded every drum app, this one is just so realistic ( cymbals can be better) and so musical, the responsiveness is spot on, I am addicted can't put this thing down, even the fact that there's a bug, sound seems to go down completely when you get a text or phone call.. I can live with it well sort of...I can be annoying!

Great, one bug
by HB_NINJA_DAWG on 2017/12/17 01:10
I have had this app for +2 yrs and this is the best drum app you can have, definitely worth the $2. One problem is that now when I try yo play them, any piece will make a tapping sound and will then play what they are, for example: if I tap on the crash, it will make the tapping noise, and if I press it again, then it will play. Please fix this problem as I would like to use it more.

Works excellent now. Great update!
Much better now...
by Patlmac on 2017/01/08 01:49
Whatever went wrong with the last update has been fixed with the new one. I love this thing. If you experience any lag, there is a latency setting that you can reduce to minimum.. I think it has something to do with saving memory, but if you have plenty of memory, might as well waste it.
Great app, currently has a bug.
by MrMos3s on 2017/01/06 19:23
This latest update: The latency of audio while playing live seems better, but the animations are very jittery and playback of any recorded beat is very jittery as well. In general: Awesome drum app with lot's of customization all around. Would love a little more authentic sounding samples but they're not the worst. Also, open hihat sound should stop as soon as you press the closed hihat.
Please Fix!
by Dutch324561 on 2017/01/03 17:18
Really like the app, but the most recent update has made the app not operate correctly. Please fix!

This is still by far the best drumming app out there! I'm glad that you guys are continuing to bring updates to the app. I love the customization freedom this app gives you and I have just as much fun tuning my drums as I do playing them. In future updates it would be fun to have some new sounds to play with, but it's hard to complain with everything this app has going for it.
Needs Work
by jeffwalker on 2016/12/23 22:13
The drum sound is good and the app runs well, except for the recording. Recording sounds for drums is incredibly bugged and frustrating to try and work with. When I first got this app a few years ago, the sound record feature worked great.
Sick App:p

Awesome! App to bang on drums all day!
by Patrick1007 on 2016/12/21 22:48
I was looking for something a little more in depth than GarageBands drum set was and this is what I was looking for! I wanted a few extra pieces to the drum set. Nice job! I like it so far! I can't believe there's an new update! Awesome
Unhappy with update
by MexicanaChica on 2016/12/19 06:37
I am very disappointed in this update! I can no longer play along with my music, and that was the whole point of having this app. I will delete this app if this issue is not fixed.
Great app, few glitches
by Sonic Bodhi on 2016/12/18 18:58
Finally, a customizable drum-set! I would, however, like to see the addition of some world percussion that includes timbales and tambouras, maybe some African sets, a rainstick, and number one on the list it needs a BELL TREE. I did notice when editing a built-in set, I added a maraca, and the sound started glitching really badly until I closed out the app and re-started it. That needs to be fixed ASAP. Have not used it enough times to be familiarized with all the features or if there are other glitches, but right off the bat, I give it 5 stars for the touch sensitivity and the ability to customize the kits. Features this could also use are pan and volume controls for each of the individual instruments. A kit has to be balanced realistically over the stereo field, esp. if one is going to use this in a recording. Also, the record function needs to be more involved than a basic capture device. You need to have an undo button, and the control bar needs to be bigger, the buttons are too small and too close together. It would also be nice to see a multi-track feature in this. Last, (and this is not a deal breaker) it would be nice to see more realistic animations when you hit the drums and especially the cymbals. It just looks odd when you see them flip from one side to the other with no actual movement. I will be back later when I have had more time to use it, if I need to reassess the initial rating. EDIT: I do note that when creating a custom kit, I saw that there are tablas and timbales included in the options. Would still be nice to see a bell tree and a rainstick, though, as well as a guiro and a djembe. A triangle and woodblocks would be nice, too. EDIT 2: I note there is no current support for Audiobus and/ or Interapp. This app would easily be worth 5 stars if you added support for these so they could be used in Garageband, for example. EDIT 3: Have had satisfactory use of this app all along, and with the newest update I'm not noticing any of the issues the others are complaining about. My sound isn't broken. However, I still note there's no support for Audiobus or Interapp, so my 4-star rating stands. Nothing major or earth-shattering was added to this, just some bug-fixes.
Was good but needs more
by Cg4mongo on 2016/12/18 10:38
I've enjoyed this drum app for s few years. Since this 2.01 update I've lost the ability to play over iTunes music. Also Settings still shows me at version 1.7! Either this was left or I'm unable to update.

Needs an update
by Eddie Güira on 2016/11/04 16:17
I'm only giving the app a 2 star rating because it hasn't been updated in a long time. Now with an iPhone 7 plus there is a noticeable lag when playing. And sound through the speakers is distorted it's only playable with headphones.
Awesome app
by chuckleblakey on 2016/10/30 15:47
Awesome app! There are still some kinks especially if you don't wear headphones but overall it's great and the sound accuracy is amazing. I wish you could flip the drums.. I'm used to having the hi hat on the right (on my phone anyway! :)
Blown away… GREAT job Mode of Expression

Whenever I play those 2 rhythm interact with iPod, I always get an unclear, distorted sound on the bass drum. Please look into this. Otherwise, it's a great tool to practice. Thanks

Boom bam biff! Plug and play with real time, real nice sounding percussion options!! Must have when you just can't fit that big kit of yours in that small vehicle of yours. Your mates will thank you! ⚡️🔊🍕
The most function kit!

I definitely like it! With R+Tap Drums now I can try every flavor of drumbeat. It makes so much more possibility! It definitely worth taking time to discover by selfs or crews on iOS!

Decent samples. My favorite feature is the ability to change the size and position of everything. Pretty low latency (best I've seen on the App Store).

My review counts. I feel everyone should listen to me. I enjoy this app. It's very smooth. And very fun to use. A huge variety of sets, along with creating your own. They did a very good job with this app. Recommend getting it. Even the free version is worth having.

Ok rat a tap guys theres my review below. So unlock the street set for me. 😀 I honestly didnt get that offer until today. But this is an amazing drum app. And they fix any problems u may have and add stuff. Now how about Carl Palmers drum kit from Emerson Lake and Palmers 70's tour and album Welcome to the Show.
The Best

Great, one bug
by HB_NINJA_DAWG on 2017/12/17 01:10
I have had this app for +2 yrs and this is the best drum app you can have, definitely worth the $2. One problem is that now when I try yo play them, any piece will make a tapping sound and will then play what they are, for example: if I tap on the crash, it will make the tapping noise, and if I press it again, then it will play. Please fix this problem as I would like to use it more.
Much better now...
by Patlmac on 2017/01/08 01:49
Whatever went wrong with the last update has been fixed with the new one. I love this thing. If you experience any lag, there is a latency setting that you can reduce to minimum.. I think it has something to do with saving memory, but if you have plenty of memory, might as well waste it.
ROCKS!!!

I love this app. Could be more user friendly on the music side. I mean where you bring in your own songs. I've always had a little trouble with the quality and functionality of that part. Other than that its my favorite drum app, and i have tried all of them.

Bang for Your Buck
by #1WeirdAlFan on 2012/08/03 20:28
Everyone knows that the iPad is great for playing games, watching movies, reading, and socializing with friends. Did you know that the iPad also has apps geared towards musicians, producers, and engineers? With hundreds of apps out there, it is hard to those apps worthy to represent the music industry. Where does one start? Start with the drum app, Ratatap. Ratatap is a drum app has many features that other drum apps have, and more without having to pay for a the features. Users must pay $2.00 to download the app. After downloading the app, users will have a variety of different kits for every genera. Plus you can create your own kit(s) with the vast amount of instruments include with in app. You can also record and play back drum beats you created. For $2.00, it's hard to say no to this powerful drum app.
You broke the app!!!!
by IRONMAN0217 on 2016/12/15 09:03
The December update has broke the app I paid for this frikin app about 3 years ago and yea it had its bugs like with recording and sharing them so other people can listen and how if you wanted to play along with your music the musical volume couldn't be controlled separately from the drums volume so I couldn't adjust both volumes so it actually sounds like I'm playing the music would be louder then the drums. But now there is basicly no sound just a laggy echoey low scratchy sound....sounds like my head phones are broken or they aren't plugged in all the way please fix this is the best drum kit for mobile out there worth the money I spent but now it's broken honestly I think you waited to long to update and your app is mad at you ....this is your baby take care of her
Sound is good, but UX and features put it way out front
by imthemobileguru on 2014/12/21 01:03
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Best drum app on the store, as long as the sound isn't the most important metric. Customizability, iPod integration, drum set engineering including type, size, volume, pitch... and then saving the drumset, sound tweaking, and special effects/animation put this application so far out in front that it could have been a fart drum app and still have been good. Some of stock sets sound a little tinny, more specifically the bass drums. The app claims the output volume is in direct proportion to how hard you tap the skin....and delivers.....sometimes. Also, could have included a strike outline so users could have a better idea where exactly to hit the skin, especially the rim shot. The biggest disappointment is there isn't an option to change the spark animations into something else like say.....notes, or butterflies....or maybe some blood or smoke or lightning. Fix a few shortcomings and the app gets 5 stars......until then it gets 4......nah...I'm not going to bother coming back. It's good enough as deployed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Not so much...
by ArcadiaStudios on 2011/06/17 16:16
Based on all of the reviews, I thought I'd love this... I don't. Despite the claims for 10 kits -- or whatever -- there's really only one rock kit. . . and it's sounds are not great: too much reverb, not much difference in pitch among the toms, and the cymbals are, for me, oddly positioned (with the ride set between a splash and a crash). While you can do some editing of the kits, there's nothing you can do if you don't like *any* of the sounds. Playability is also a concern: it's very difficult to get anything like an even sound from, say, the hi-hats; one tap can generate a loud sound, then a similar tap can be almost silent. Finally, the spacing of the kits on the screen is not great. No real kit could be set up like this or you'd be smacking a cymbal when you meant to hit a tom or you'd hit the way-oversize cowbell when you meant to hit a hi-hat. Just feels like a wasted $1.99, since I'll happily stick with the Drums! app and the drums in GarageBand for iPad.
Review
by Ultimate030 on 2012/10/01 05:18
The things I would like to see changed are 1. Make the rim shot easier to hit 2. Move the tap menu from the bottom 3. Gets slow and laggy when fooling around with the recording and other various menu options 4. Option to rearrange default drums 5. I would like to see better dynamics 6. Have metronome options to have one tape or multiple 7. Be able to record the music that your playing to 8. Be able to start with or without metronome while recording 9. Stability issues. 10. When recording stop it from saving everything when you stop recording. Other then that it's great
Best yet
by transcendentalaccidentalism on 2012/02/05 05:04
I've been through a few finger drum apps and I think I'm done looking for the right one. For me ... the best thing about this app is the ability to size, send front/back, and essentially move your saved custom kit however it best fits your fingers. I got long fingers and most of these standard drum sets just feel awkward - the ability to move, reshape, resize, all that makes for a much more natural/custom experience. Like most apps, you can get a little lost in time as you fine-tune and experiment, but I'd put this one on par with say ... a moog app -- possibilities are endless. Love it! I dumped the other 2 I had wasted iTunes credit on - my bad.
Excellent
by Aircavmedic on 2012/03/17 03:39
This is about as good as it is going to get if you want a drum set on you iPhone or iPad. There are many built in sets, as well as bongos. You can build your own sets, change drum positions, sounds etc. yes, we all like free, but somebody built & programmed it. Pay the money. If you like their free products, this takes them & betters them. I wasted $.99 on another set that has only 2 variations. Buy 1 good one. This has acoustic, jazz, percussion set-ups. Did I mention electronic sets. This is the best & I have paid & tried others. Thank you.
Buggy with song playback
by Quantum_Farce on 2013/06/16 06:02
While the sensitivity is nice for faking closed rolling and even for a number of rudimentary chops on the kid, the synth or sampled acoustic tom sounds very 80s simmons edrums. But hey, this is a versatile app for $1.99. One glaring bug on this one is attempting to play a song in your music library and attempt to play along with it on a kit. The drum sounds go completely corrupt and sound like reverbed static. This has been noted before, so I'm wondering if this app is either back in development, or is collecting dust for another project. I think with the work these guys have put in, sound samples could be added to rival addictive, east/west, etc. Dont give up on this one yet guys!! Got a good thing going on here.
Brillant
by Masty666 on 2013/03/14 03:43
I have tried every respectable drums app available at the store, meister was my favorite once, but this is so much better that i cant even explain, not much more there to say, as it does EXACTLY what it say it does, my fav features: full customization, that is looks, position, size, AND even sound, so awesome...and number two, pressure sensitive: now i don't know how they do it as i don't think the ipad screen has that ability, but it works, and above all, it sounds great
Rich sound, fun and easy, great value!
by Andicat123 on 2011/12/23 04:58
After playing a couple of drum games, i wanted to find a drum kit that was more realistic, and was astonished to find this app, which has so many great sounds, ease of use, fun play, at such a low price. The only thing i would improve is the 'edit kit' feature, i'd like to be able to add multiple toms, or snares at once, rather than starting each addition at the root set of drums. I love the ability to arrange each element. Very realistic for virtual drums.
For the true drummers and wannabe's!
by RomarGuitar on 2012/11/01 01:23
I have so amny drum apps I refuse to take the time to count them all. But when it comes to actually playing the drums? Ratatap is the best of the bunch hands down. The sounds, the editing, create your own kits, no delays. Truly responsive to rolls, flams, etc. i like setting up 2 kits side by side and playing a whole set per hand. No exaggeration, you can use Ratatap live and leave your set at home push come to shove! Please keep updating. The best!
Very well done drum kit -- easy to generate great sounds even as a beginner
by thebirdman7 on 2011/06/25 14:32
I love this drum set. It is easy to play and is fun to full a few spare moments whenever you have time to play. Perhaps the best thing about this app is that you can configure your own drum kits and of course there are free ones included as well, some of which are a bit weird. I particularly enjoy the jazz kit. I have also put my favorite drums together in a kit and enjoy sitting on the porch playing on the weekends, entertaining myself with some cool rythyms. I highly recommend this app!
Excellent!
by Josh Kersey on 2016/12/23 23:17
This is still by far the best drumming app out there! I'm glad that you guys are continuing to bring updates to the app. I love the customization freedom this app gives you and I have just as much fun tuning my drums as I do playing them. In future updates it would be fun to have some new sounds to play with, but it's hard to complain with everything this app has going for it.
Ratatap drums
by Biocrunch on 2011/05/07 06:56
So freaking amazing, I have pretty much downloaded every drum app, this one is just so realistic ( cymbals can be better) and so musical, the responsiveness is spot on, I am addicted can't put this thing down, even the fact that there's a bug, sound seems to go down completely when you get a text or phone call.. I can live with it well sort of...I can be annoying!
