Great! 5/5
by PolyDROID - Version 1.0 - Jun 15, 2013
Simple, but really beautiful sounding. Think Daft Punk 'Derezzed'. Wish it was a VST or AU host. My dream synthetic drum machine.

Amazing app 5/5
by Tronic j - Version 1.0 - Jun 20, 2013
Amazing app. ... Some really interesting effects can be achieved with the delay section which also functions as a kind of sequencer, so that beats can be juxtaposed and overlaid.

Boom! 5/5
by Swiftkickinc - Version 1.0 - Jun 14, 2013
This is the best drum synth on ios. There are others that are more in depth, and have more features but if you just need a boomin kick, snappy snares, and some hats its perfect!...
