  • Among the Best

    By SpiritMonkee
    If the developer adds a choice of new drum sample libraries, EQ, and mix/pan to the kits this will be a cut above everything else out there. As it is it is a great add for iOS DAWs like Cubasis. Well done. I have to amend this review. As of June 2017 editing in DrumSession is a horrible experience on both iPad and iPhone. It is best to stick to using the internal sequences. Moving notes is nearly impossible on an iPhone because you can't see where the note is under your finger, similar for the iPad. If you're not careful every time you try to move the edit screen around you lay down new notes you have to delete. The recording and editing process is bug riddled with crashes and non-responsive app behavior. The screen remains unnecessarily dark making pad usage and some navigation needlessly difficult unless you want to burn down your battery winding the video all the way up in normal room light. Maybe it's just too much to demand from an iOS app. So far the market still lacks a serious and user friendly solution. iPad Air 2 128gb
  • Sound good but

    By Stringy_D
    The app keeps crashing every 5 to ten minutes. It fizzles and closes. While it works, it sounds good and easy to use. I wish there was more midi editing capabilities. Also it would be cool to import midi loops or at least have in app purchases to buy more patterns. I am using an iPad Air. Having it crash on me makes me feel like I wasted $25 because I won't use it due to lack of confidence in the app.
  • Keep working on it!

    It has potential but I prefer Rock Drum Machine, Drum Loops HD, or Drum Beats. It is pricey for what you currently get IMO....

    Never found a good iOS app to put down great drum tracks in my hard rock projects, but this app does it easily and realistically. Other than the sometimes difficult to read buttons due to color contrast (which the dev is changing in next update), this app is going to be game changer for those who implement iOS into their musical creations.
  • This is the EZ Drummer like app I've been waiting for

    By Divad Thgirbla
    I don't know if Toontrack's EZ Drummer app will ever be ported to iOS but this might be the next best thing. I'm still figuring it out but I like what I see so far. Maybe a bit pricey, though for an iOS app but I snatched it up after reading a review on Music App Blog. One thing I don't like is the color scheme of the transport and function controls. I had to turn my iPad's brightness up to super nova levels in order to barely be able to make out the controls. This really needs to change. It took me ten minutes to figure out how to get out of the initial help screen because I couldn't make out the exit button.
  • This might finally be the one!

    By Fusionarts
    This is the best acoustic drum app on iOS to date. The developers say there are more features in the pipeline, but even as is it's well worth the price!
  • I hope this gets fleshed out by the devs.

    By Always Don't Mess With Me
    Great idea, poor execution. It's very buggy, crashes on startup, is impossible to edit, and, honestly, doesn't look very good. A lot of buttons are hard to see and blend into the faux marble graphic. For 25$ I was hoping for stability at the very least. The kits are flat and to me the biggest difference between them all is reverb. The editor is almost pointless. It's not easy to read the effect on the piano roll and the select feature is primitive. Sometimes the sounds I've dropped in stop working. Sometimes I can't do anything at all to what I'm working on anymore. This is where it crashes on me EVERY SINGLE TIME I'VE USED IT. The ease of dropping patterns into the timeline is fantastic. It's easy to loop and set tempos; really, once this things gets going it's going to be a beast. It just doesn't feel done yet. I know it's early in the lifecycle of Drum Session, and I do hope all of these things will be addressed in future updates, but as of now, for the price? Ah, well...they can't all be zingers. EDIT:since update I've had it crash and shut down three times in less than an hour messing with it. Too bad. EDIT 2: EDIT keys crashes app. Still crashes from piano roll. Deleted.
  • Great

    A wonderful addition to IOS music making.
  • Off to a great start

    By twoifbysea2
    I've been waiting a couple of years for this release and it was worth it. On the second day after it went live we already have our first bug fix update. Great work guys. I look forward to all of the new features that you'll be adding.
  • This is the one!!

    This is so easy to use and get something very useable for a song right outta the box. Lots of different possibilities and it sounds amazing. Really really good.
