Yes, it’s worth it.
by mikev08822 on 2019/09/18 16:45
I don’t normally write reviews, but I felt compelled to clear up some of the confusion around this app. Basically what your getting for $4.95 is a free sample and an option to buy the full version for $3.49 a month, or $25 for a lifetime subscription. I’m a beginner and the drum beats are fine for my use. Perhaps a more seasoned player would want a higher grade drum machine??? IDK... I’m not even sure how a real drum machine sounds. Basically, don’t spend $4.95 unless your willing to pay the $25 a year, or $3.95 per month. Yes, it’s kind of shady
Shed Time!

Don’t like the subscription idea.
The Best

It is just good app
Not entirely honest
by Coins76 on 2019/07/28 03:32
Very little is included with the purchase price. You basically are buying an advertisement for another $25 dollar purchase. It would be more honest to just charge $30 and be done with it. It males me feel slimy.

Sweet App
by jamesfcarroll on 2019/06/14 17:09
This app works great. It makes practicing songs more enjoyable with a drummer laying down the beat. I would enjoy having a few more 3/4 rhythms on this app.
Great app
by Joyful Monk on 2019/06/12 18:51
Love this app. Awesome jam tracks. Thanks!!! And who knows I might get Rhythm yet. Hahaha
Good but way overpriced
by amazedandconfused on 2019/05/26 10:16
I like this app but just cancelled my subscription because for what you get in functionality and variations I think it is way overpriced. Maybe $7 a year would be justifiable but $23 a year? forget it.
Worth the money
by jbiebs2.0 on 2019/05/20 17:11
Real fun to practice with. Very straight forward.

Great app!
by Malpaugh on 2019/03/11 16:15
Great sounds and easy to use. I wish I could save individual tempos in the "Favorites" and be able to access individual beats with midi program changes. Thank you. Keep it up.
One of my favorite things
by websterP on 2019/03/05 02:35
It’s like the rhythm section in a keyboard and has all kinds of styles to practice over!
Easy to use, lots of great beats
by klkinthecloud on 2019/03/01 21:17
This app took me about five seconds to learn how to use, which is my favorite thing about it. Also the beats are really great and the sound is good and all of that. For about 25 bucks you can download the rest of their collection, but the $5 version does offer a lot. I would like to see a function where you can sort the beats by time signature or other things. And also a notes section for your favorites. Definitely worth the five bucks.
Good teaching tool
by archaicmusikerin on 2019/02/13 19:27
I downloaded this app to make practicing my scales more interesting, but I found a greater use for it in my music teaching. When I introduce a student to the metronome it is hard for some of them to grasp tempo because they can’t feel it. This app helps me teach rhythm and tempo in a more interesting way that keeps the students engaged.
More than I imagined
by ShawnBoucke on 2019/02/13 14:17
There are so many drum beats I am always hitting the dice just to get something new. One request: I would love a function to tap and get a tempo. I have to guess and check or go to a different metronome currently to find a good tempo.
Subscription?👎🏽

Drum beats plus
by Christian Fury on 2019/02/07 17:33
Awesome!
Rip Off!!
by gdtrfb74 on 2019/02/07 05:02
You spend about $5 and get a 30 second sample of a corny drum beat. In order to play it longer you can subscribe to an account for an atrocious monthly fee. Save yourself the $5 and STAY AWAY from this useless app
Great but short
by baldbassboy on 2019/01/24 04:35
Great sounds. Not very efficient as a practice tool if you have to restart it every 10 seconds. Why isn’t there a variable length or repeat bars setting? If you charge $ for it, it should be useful.
Bass Player
by B73fcLz9 on 2019/01/21 03:55
I like this app because I can practice different things with my bass.
Quality Rocks
by Jjucucudhbzjsjwuzuus on 2018/12/23 17:44
excellent practice tool you can copy and slice it up and make excellent kits for personal use elsewhe would love to see more expansion packs. Would even purchase them without hesitation. Great job
Great app but needs to have Audiobus support
by Bbdmpg on 2018/12/05 22:58
I don’t know what happened, but on my old ipad i have an older version and it works just fine with Audiobus, with the newest version, not at all ( hence the 4 star rating). I payed for the lifetime subscription because it really is a great app. With Audiobus, this app would be perfect!
Fills
by spk music on 2018/10/28 01:22
Is there a way you could add a feature to be able to just press a button and get a fill and go to a secondary beat like in a chorus?
Good sounds, needs work
by bonvivant on 2018/10/27 16:06
Thanks to the nine buzz team for allowing fine tempo adjustment. Now please add ‘adjust tempo while playing’ without resetting to beat 1. Very offputting Because can’t adjust tempo while playing without the song falling apart! Sort of needed... Thx.
Misleading product
by xsoundgardenx on 2018/10/22 18:44
I wanted a metronome to practice with that was better than a standard click. But after buying this app, it quickly became clear that 60% of the drum tracks are locked behind a paywall subscription model or would cost a one time additional fee of substantially more than what the app is listed for on the store. I will look elsewhere.

by chelasalle on 2018/09/15 21:58
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 👍🏼
Great Starter App
by Ggrrrr2013 on 2018/09/04 04:32
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
More Than Worth the Price
by Wretchasketch on 2018/09/04 01:13
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.
Nice but one big gripe
by Choralriff on 2018/08/26 13:27
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.
Older version was better
by The Tattooed Piano Player on 2018/08/16 23:50
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
Really?
by Hejchdjdnsj on 2018/08/07 15:03
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.
Incredible

by Riposter26 on 2018/06/29 01:34
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...”
record option
by Bigbadbobbyt on 2018/06/28 19:25
Would love to be able to click record, And open my iphone mike. Easy Peasy.
Too many upsells
by WOW Composer on 2018/06/28 02:43
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.

Battery killer
by rastabot on 2018/06/19 08:24
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
Great App and Very Responsive Developer
by ryanguitar123 on 2018/06/08 17:20
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!!!
Overpricing just killed a decent app.
by MilesTag16 on 2018/06/04 23:09
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.
Dynamic teaching too
by percussionest on 2018/05/31 05:43
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.
Simple and Serves Its Purpose Well
by AC11367 on 2018/05/18 12:32
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.
Simple
by Wenz63 on 2018/04/15 18:21
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.
Sounds Programmed With No Groove
by nickname333 on 2018/04/07 15:02
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 $.
Battery killer

Great for songwriting!
by Catwalk66 on 2018/02/22 20:30
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!

BPM not flexible enough
by TazmanR on 2018/01/14 16:33
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.
Excellent!

K.I.S.S.- Keep it simple stupid
by kwdulong on 2018/01/07 17:07
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 give it to four because there’s always room for improvement
by Cyber Bomb on 2018/01/07 02:26
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…

Best drum loop there is
by Rickersmashshredder on 2017/12/02 01:46
Best one on the App Store. They do really need to add more though. Tired of the same ones.
Battery Drain
by Kentucky Oyster on 2017/11/24 21:41
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.
More time signatures
by Slingshot '73 on 2017/11/23 15:46
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.
Great drum machine

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.
Fun Practice Sessions !
by planetChar on 2017/11/10 18:02
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.
Will not load....

I bought this app and it will not load at all. Sad!
Good stuff
by The Bulletron on 2017/10/23 12:29
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.
Terrific practice/ rehearsal and writing tool
by 3StepsForward on 2017/10/14 21:40
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.

Greatest Practice App in app store

Quality sounds, works great with bluetooth speakers. Love using with scale practice, chord progressions and as timing trainer. Also great for inspiration and getting the feel for rhythm. Don't normally suggest apps, but you got to get this one!!
Cheesy beats
by GasFace74 on 2017/09/20 12:18
How everyone rates it 5 stars is beyond me. This app reminds of me the tiny cheap keyboard my uncle would buy everyone for Christmas as a kid. The keyboard was cheaper to buy then this. I wish I could get my $10 back. What a waste.

Best Metronome Ever
by mgeorgeh on 2017/08/15 00:40
This is a great app. I am a music teacher and this app has helped countless students (especially those who can't count) establish a good sense of pulse and rhythmic integrity. I have also used it to supply a missing drummer for my jazz band!
The best beat app for bass players!
by delabassx on 2017/08/12 22:33
This app has helped me as a bass player. Amazing detail with clean crisp sound! A must-have!
Simple, elegant
by crickdigger on 2017/08/12 19:08
Out of all of the drum apps available to use as a rhythm accompaniment track, this is the most straightforward. You can choose the rate usually in accurately, and there are a relatively large number of options for rhythm patterns. Start and stop button is easy to use, and starts back on the downbeat. I am not a drummer, and I am not trying to learn drums – I just want an app that will give me the background drum/rhythm I need for simple recording, or even live purposes.
Great app
by Rokeroman on 2017/08/12 18:28
This app is straight forward. I does what it says it does. Not glitches for me
Love this app
by Hercule Poirot on 2017/08/11 16:22
So much more fun to use than a metronome. I'm a longtime player, this app makes practicing technical stuff fun. I'd love to see the ability for me to create my own beats, sounds, and patterns in a variety of duple, triple, and odd meters. Hope you continue to develop and expand on what you've got here.
Bug that damages battery life
by Link123555 on 2017/08/06 00:17
When this application is open, the speakers are constantly humming. Even when it is open on the background. The hum is incredibly quiet, but you can hear it when you put the speaker of the phone to your ear. My battery life has been decreasing for the past couple months and I had no idea why. I'm incredibly disappointed by this!
Great tool for practicing blues!
by G4GuitarSchoolsOxnard on 2017/08/01 00:39
I'm a guitar teacher, and I recommend this app as a supplement to your practice. I tell all my students to use it.
Love it!!!
by Soccerrayray8 on 2017/07/26 17:36
Have it playing through my phone as I play the guitar
Finally got one!
by michael.man15 on 2017/07/26 16:14
I play bass guitar, and I essentially feel that you need drums to fully develop more as a player, I've been messing with this for a couple of days now, but I feel like I'm listening so much more differently and getting more in depth musically by understanding on how a drummer thinks and plays. I think it's great for any instrumentalist even drummers it's a good tool for inspiration.
Perfect practice companion
by Janos Wolf on 2017/07/23 04:43
Easy to use and plenty of variety to inspire good practice routines. The different grooves cover popular styles and the ability to adjust tempo instantly is boss.
Great grooves for practice
by Dissapointed and on 2017/07/21 20:02
Really nice rhythm grooves for guitar practice. Lively, real (it seems!) drumbeats that keep it interesting. Excellent practice tool. Thanks!
Exactly what I wanted
by Heresthebestpart on 2017/07/16 00:33
It's simple, elegant, and gets the job done perfectly.
Great AP but:
by Pk1234$ on 2017/07/15 20:19
This is a great application but what I find missing are standard ballroom rhythms. There is no Tango, Foxtrot or Cha Cha beat and the only Rumba beat is too busy. While it may be possible to adapt the preset beats to fit ballroom style It would be nice if the names of those presets that are adapted and saved in the favorites folder could be renamed in order to customize.
Makes practice fun.
by Lafinboy57 on 2017/07/13 21:30
I am a bluegrass player. Using this app makes practicing fiddle tunes, scales and chord progressions on guitar, mandolin fun and challenging. Wish only that I could change the tempo in smaller increments than 5s. But that is really not that big a deal. I have purchased several of the different "packages" and like them all. In my real life I am a middle school band director. Last year I played this app through our PA system during scale practice. The kids loved playing scales with various rhythmic backgrounds. Great app for any musician.
Out of the box!
by vLoungerecords on 2017/07/08 04:13
Song 1 with this app, done
Bap, bap boom! :-)
by s. bruce on 2016/10/10 00:00
Look, let's be honest here. This is a totally simplistic app, it's not meant to do anything super sophisticated, but that said, it's a lot of fun and great practice tool. I love just scrolling through the different grooves and letting em' inspire a groove. Or finding a beat that fits a groove I'm working on. And it all helps with my timing and my tempo. Especially the practice section where the beats drop out for a bit and come back in. That really helps keep my playing honest and my focus sharp. All of the drum tracks sound great either in my headphones or jacked into the aux jack on my guitar amp, or jacked into my home stereo. Even through my iPhone's speakers it sounds good. They really EQ'd the sounds really well to sound great in a variety of situations. A lot of fun. Totally easy and simple to use....
Beats a Regular Click Click Click
by San Antone! on 2016/07/09 20:46
This is a great app. I'm an old-school country and western swing guitarist and between the provided beats and the country package I have everything I need for practicing. Metronomes are much better than having something playing the chord progression a lot of the time since you can stop to work on a particular passage or fingering and pick right back up without having to restart or find your place in the chord progression. I wish you could select your own BPM instead of going by the five BPM increments the way the app is set up, and I wish it had more range in terms of tempo's. I would really rated about a 4.8 instead of 5 because of those limitations, but even so a great, great app and a lot of fun to play with.
Wish these were included with my DAW.
by ktmfactoryrider on 2016/09/27 05:03
These are really great drum tracks, I wish these had been included in my Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)! They are really nice loops and you can just turn them on and let them go, they are so much better than a click track or a metronome to practice with. To get more, I think they are a bit expensive and wish there was an option to purchase all of them for like $10 to $15. To buy them all gets a bit expensive... Still that's no enough to drop the app from 5 Stars, this is just a great app and it works perfectly and is a perfect practice AND performance application! The more I use this, the more I absolutely love it! It's the best!
Must have metronome
by richardban on 2016/03/16 11:31
I was so tired of practicing with metronome apps, all those clicks and snaps, that I was delighted to find this group of beats to play to. I usually stick with the straight beats for running scales, but there's plenty of variety for inspiration and to aid writing songs. This is an app I use every day and is why I give it a five star rating. I do have one gripe that I know others have too. It's the fact that it only goes down to sixty beats per minute. If you want to practice a slow ballad, say at 50 bpm, then you have to set it at 100 bpm, which makes it sound too busy.
Great Starter App
by Ggrrrr2013 on 2018/09/04 04:32
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
Dynamic teaching too
by percussionest on 2018/05/31 05:43
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.
Terrific practice/ rehearsal and writing tool
by 3StepsForward on 2017/10/14 21:40
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.
Terrific practice companion
by adaptiveagile on 2016/12/25 17:07
5 stars. Don't know how I got along without this. Not live-instrument quality, but totally adequate for my daily practice sessions. I purchased most of the genre packs and generally have all the beats needed for anything I take a stab at. I feel that the beats packs are well-priced, and commercial services like this have a better chance of sticking around and improving their products. It isn't mentioned anywhere, so I thought others will want to know that the app runs perfectly in the background on my iPad Air 2, which was the main problem I had with other drum loop apps. I was able to run the loops while running both Guitar Pro and the Line 6 Mobile Pod. Big thank you and Kudos to the developers - please continue developing and supporting this app. I look forward to expanded packs in the future. This is one of those must-have apps for guitar practice.
Nice but one big gripe
by Choralriff on 2018/08/26 13:27
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.
Makes practice fun.

A Metronome On Steroids! Love It!
by Kenny Saskatchewanobie on 2016/10/18 07:39
Playing along with a regular metronome will help you bring your playing into alignment with the actual tempo, but this app will give you the luxury of a more 'true to life' playing situation while you're at it. One thing I like is the help it is to have the occasional drum beat 'turn around' at the start of the measure to help me know where the measures start, something that is easy for me to lose track of while practicing. Highly recommended music practice tool.
Simple, elegant
by crickdigger on 2017/08/12 19:08
Out of all of the drum apps available to use as a rhythm accompaniment track, this is the most straightforward. You can choose the rate usually in accurately, and there are a relatively large number of options for rhythm patterns. Start and stop button is easy to use, and starts back on the downbeat. I am not a drummer, and I am not trying to learn drums – I just want an app that will give me the background drum/rhythm I need for simple recording, or even live purposes.
What took this app so long?
by musicman436 on 2017/04/16 16:52
What took this app so long to be developed? Why I ask? Because I've been a music teacher and a Music Academy owner for 14 years and I needed a program like this to 1) help my students improve their timing in the classroom, 2) have a nice style appropriate groove while accompanying my vocal students during their lessons, and 3) allow my drum students to hear various grooves, and practice these grooves in addition to the curriculum study. This app is a must have! Jared
Blast of rhythms !!!
by ccpupi on 2016/03/08 23:17
If you want to practice with the real thing, this is it. No matter what music genre you love and play, this app covers a wide variety of rhythms for your needs, giving you the chance to expand your rhythmic library with in-app purchases, from rock, pop, jazz, latin and more. It's impressive the high quality of the sounds and how useful they can be, it's the perfect companion if you don't have a drummer or percussionist on your band. I love it !!!
Easy to use, lots of great beats
by klkinthecloud on 2019/03/01 21:17
This app took me about five seconds to learn how to use, which is my favorite thing about it. Also the beats are really great and the sound is good and all of that. For about 25 bucks you can download the rest of their collection, but the $5 version does offer a lot. I would like to see a function where you can sort the beats by time signature or other things. And also a notes section for your favorites. Definitely worth the five bucks.
Groove!
by PapaGM on 2017/06/01 20:59
I have progammed beats for decades. I love this app. I rehease and arrange songs, I practice scales, record with it. It has changed the nature recording songs with the band. A percussionist and drummer play around and with Drum Beats +. The whole band bought and all in app purchase grooves. I bought them all for my bass player. You are heroes for making this app. "You will never use a click track again!" Greg Murat- Singer Songwriter and engineer.
Good app not not always friendly with AirPlay
by Jl_juti on 2015/05/24 22:34
I play the beat through an AirPlay speaker to practice guitar and there's some glitch where sometimes it will stop working all together and not play sounds through my phone or the speaker. The only way I can get it to work again is to reboot my phone. It's annoying. Other wise the app is cool and has lots of great beats. I would also like it if there was a way to access all the beats within the specific key signature in one place. I'm still glad I bought it overall.
Finally got one!
by michael.man15 on 2017/07/26 16:14
I play bass guitar, and I essentially feel that you need drums to fully develop more as a player, I've been messing with this for a couple of days now, but I feel like I'm listening so much more differently and getting more in depth musically by understanding on how a drummer thinks and plays. I think it's great for any instrumentalist even drummers it's a good tool for inspiration.
Too many upsells
by WOW Composer on 2018/06/28 02:43
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 and Very Responsive Developer
by ryanguitar123 on 2018/06/08 17:20
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!!!
Richard
by chelasalle on 2018/09/15 21:58
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 👍🏼
Great Practice Tool
by BB3RD on 2016/12/29 18:45
This app has inspired me to get back to my practice routine. This app provides many useful drum beats that make practicing fun again. I keep it on my IPad plugged into my pedal board so I can practice privately through headphones. I Love it. This app has great sound, very realistic sound to help inspire me to want to play more and more. Thank You for creating this reasonably priced app!
Great app
by Grt002 on 2015/03/25 23:02
I love this app. I teach junior high band and use it with my 6th grade beginning classes in place of a metronome at times to add some fun variety for scales and things. Love being able to change tempos and bookmark favorites. I suppose there could always be a greater variety of beats to choose from but the app certainly serves its purpose and I just love it. So do my kids.
Great little App
by The Ruddfactor on 2017/03/10 06:37
The only problem with this app is, it's so good and useful that you wish it had more features! I use it every day as a teacher. Great quality, great sound. You will want the whole package so buy the whole thing. I'm really hoping they keep expanding this thing and adding more features. It's that good.
Better than a metronome
by Travis Owen on 2015/03/09 01:57
Great app with excellent in-app beat packs that I don't even mind paying for! It has an excellent interface, where you can bookmark your favorite beats and easily access them later. The ability to control the BPM is a breeze, too. Lose the metronome, buy this app and practice to some sweet beats immediately!
Very useful... I've deleted all the others
by AlfredBr on 2016/12/22 22:38
This drum app is excellent. I own a professional drum machine but I use this app more often for practice and improvising. The interface is easy to use and the sounds are great. It runs in the background under other apps so I can use it with guitar amp simulators. Worth the $$$.
Love this app to help with rhythm and staying on beat (haha).
by kuguitargrl on 2017/07/06 12:48
Guitar teacher and musician extraordinare, Eddie Bush told me about this app when I came in for a lesson and it definitely helped my timing and staying on beat (lol). This app paired with some new strings on my Yamaha acoustic, and the drive to keep going made a world of difference in just 5 minutes into the practice. ✌️🎸
Ditch the click track
by Geoffersonian on 2015/10/24 21:14
It's pretty much a given that you must practice with a timing device. I never could get used to a metronome or other click track. This app makes it bearable, and your playing will improve dramatically. If you can't play on time...you can't play.
Simply The Best!
by Midsummermagic1111 on 2015/06/08 20:13
I am a teacher and musician. I use it with my students every day in place of the boring metronome. I have tried many other apps and this one is hands down my favorite! The beat packs are affordable, nice sounding, and have a good variety. Highly recommend. This app is essential for any musician.
Perfect for guitar practice
by Loopercoe on 2015/03/02 18:57
I love using this app to provide simple backing drum tracks while I practice guitar. Unlike most drum machines which require you to program a pattern, with this I simply press play and start pickin'. Great alternative to a metronome as it still will keep your rhythm very solid but adds the enjoyment of a backing drum track.
BPM not flexible enough
by TazmanR on 2018/01/14 16:33
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.
Simple and Serves Its Purpose Well
by AC11367 on 2018/05/18 12:32
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.
Good teaching tool
by archaicmusikerin on 2019/02/13 19:27
I downloaded this app to make practicing my scales more interesting, but I found a greater use for it in my music teaching. When I introduce a student to the metronome it is hard for some of them to grasp tempo because they can’t feel it. This app helps me teach rhythm and tempo in a more interesting way that keeps the students engaged.
Funky drummer
by mrkite1983 on 2017/03/19 18:38
I'm loving the app. I'm a 52yr old guy, getting back into playing again, after other life commitments. Really like that I can slow the tempo down to learn a groove. Better than slowing down a turntable. Between this a garage band , I'm have a blast learning and playing. Funky drummer is a beast to groove!!!
Awesome!
by Paso04 on 2016/10/01 14:06
I would give it 6 stars if I could. I am tired of my metronome and wanted simple to use convenient drum tracks to play with. I almost bought a beat buddy pedal but this is better because it's portable as an app on my phone. I hope they keep some new tracks coming!
Love this app
by Hercule Poirot on 2017/08/11 16:22
So much more fun to use than a metronome. I'm a longtime player, this app makes practicing technical stuff fun. I'd love to see the ability for me to create my own beats, sounds, and patterns in a variety of duple, triple, and odd meters. Hope you continue to develop and expand on what you've got here.
Change the tempo
by TristanDang on 2017/04/25 00:42
I really like the beats, but it's just that it's hard for me to play my guitar with the beats rhythmically because either the beats were too fast and too slow. I want to know if we can change the tempo by 1 instead of 5.
Great grooves
by Nashville jammer on 2015/11/03 00:10
For quick grooves on the go, it's hard to beat this app for your phone. I use it in my practice room with our small band when a drummer is not available. Very easy to use, and very reliable after using for two days now. Love it.
Great Tool and EZ
by Wadsworth Music on 2017/03/26 21:59
This is the best drum machine for songwriters/guitarists to just start using and not have to fool with programming beats. The only thing I wish it could do is have BPM in between the preset ones, i.e. 118 BPM instead of 115 or 120 as your only choice. Other than that, I am absolutely pleased with this great app!!!
Great AP but:
by Pk1234$ on 2017/07/15 20:19
This is a great application but what I find missing are standard ballroom rhythms. There is no Tango, Foxtrot or Cha Cha beat and the only Rumba beat is too busy.

Good but not close to being great.
by rsd22 on 2016/04/16 15:07
The lowest you can go in this app is only 60 BPM. Sometimes I need lower BPM to learn new beats. Think beginner developer. Can't get lower the 60 here. And if you want 93 or 114 bpm forget it. The bpm goes up in 5 increments. And no sheet music to learn or see the music being played. And that why I would never upgrade to the pro version. The free version is just not close to where it needs to be. All of the 5 star reviews must be fake.
Great app but needs to have Audiobus support
by Bbdmpg on 2018/12/05 22:58
I don’t know what happened, but on my old ipad i have an older version and it works just fine with Audiobus, with the newest version, not at all ( hence the 4 star rating). I payed for the lifetime subscription because it really is a great app. With Audiobus, this app would be perfect!
Dude this app is dope!!!
by Fijdru on 2017/04/23 14:30
It's so sick having a pocket drummer always with you, no pun intended, to be able to practice whenever wherever, especially if you're a bass player and can't just call up your drummer buddies to meet you whenever wherever. This app works great for that, I love it!!! Thanks Drum Beats!
Good stuff
by The Bulletron on 2017/10/23 12:29
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.
I love this app
by Nategw77 on 2016/11/18 20:06
The thing I like about is app is the ability to play with drums when it just me with my guitar. Not only can you pick a beat, but it is easy to change the tempo is well. I use it for jamming purposes as well as a metronome:)
More than I imagined
by ShawnBoucke on 2019/02/13 14:17
There are so many drum beats I am always hitting the dice just to get something new. One request: I would love a function to tap and get a tempo. I have to guess and check or go to a different metronome currently to find a good tempo.
Great sounding drums, tons of rhythms
by dtherrien on 2016/01/23 15:38
I purchased a few extra collections and they all sound great. I'm a guitar player and instructor, so these are great to have for practicing and teaching. Heck, I'd even use them when I'm out playing as well. I'd like to see more 3/4 timing beats.
Timing is everything.
by Jorge Moto on 2015/06/27 04:47
Any musician knows how important it is to keep the beat/rhythm in any song. This will help you in your quest to be "in the pocket" think Keef, Malcom, Nile, Hetfield, Clapton..and any other genre where rhythm is king. This is the perfect app to emulate your influences and create your own style. Perfect for any musician
More Than Worth the Price
by Wretchasketch on 2018/09/04 01:13
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.
