Great App! Great drumming reference, tutor, and practice system! - This is the best drumming software I have seen. I'm using the Mac version and its outstanding! Notation, tempo changing, actual drum video, ability to isolate each hand and foot, separate feet video, techniques, and more. I'm so impressed. I'm an experienced drummer who has also taught drumming and I am learning from this and can see it being very beneficial to beginning students.

Review by peterlynnsmith

Good but could be much better.. WAITING FOR AN UPDATE…. - This is full of great rhythms when using the midi loops but as for brushes.. they dont specify how to read when hes tapping with the brush compared to brushing with the brush (it doesnt say anything about brushesin the help window?!). Also the sound coming from the drums in the video is horrible.. and when you play the samba brush part at half speed the part the guy in the video is playing is NOT the same as when you slow down the midi file of the same beat. The drummer in the video doesn't even have a swish in pitch to his brush playing like the midi track. come on drum school.. that drummer has less feel than the midi loop! Im of course only talking about what needs to be improved and about stuff in brazilian but they're real problems that sound AWFUL. The whole thing should work with recording programs like garageband logic protools and everything else. I should be able to click and drag the beat into a recording program and practice side-by-side with the midi loop at whatever speed i choose, using any VST sound banks i want like ez drummer or whatever. and these are just the obvious feature that should be there.. UPDATE IT
