Pretty Cool - Nice sound's and just what I was looking for... thanks =)
Love it - For the price, you can't go wrong. I also don't view the lack of sounds as a bad thing, it keeps you focused and tight. Get this app Update: The laest update has made things one hundred times better! Get this app
Very nice! - Cool idea and simple to use. Please keep the updates coming!
Has potential, needs to be a midi plugin - The sounds are great, the layout is fine, but it's such a hassle to export every little four count and you're never sure if it's going to fit in the mix until you export it and put it there. This would be so much more useful as a midi plugin for Logic and Garageband with a multi-output feature. That way you can edit the beats whenever you want as well as change the bpm and instrument levels if you need to. I have over 30 .wav files of four count beats just for one song. What a headache.
Awesome app at at awesome price. - First, I'd like to say that the the app is solid; it doesn't crash and it doesn't freeze. Although, I have ran into a few issues when saving loops within the app, but not too many. The app is nice in that it allows you some room to experiment with the attack, decay, and volume of each sample. This might seem like a limited amount of signal processing, but with the 8 bit drum samples, it goes a long way. The app allows you to export your compositions as WAV files, so further editing of your tracks is easy in Logic, Pro Tools, or whatever DAW you prefer. Also, the tempo selector within 8 Bit Drummer is accurate and syncs perfectly with outside software. There are a few downsides, but they are all completely forgiviable thanks to the awesome price point. 8 Bit Drummer only accommodates 6 tracks, edits in a 16th note format only, and its unchangeable, default time signature is 4/4. It does not allow you to add any sort of swing to your compositions, but the app's ability to export your loops as WAV files allows you to edit them to your heart's content in your prefered DAW. You can't use 8 Bit Drummer as a VST plug-in, but I wouldn't want to use the software in that manner regardless. Overall, if you want to compose 8 bit music, this easy to use software will put you on your way instantly. It doesn't crash, it sounds great, and it's only three bucks. VoidBred has made a great little piece of software!
