Drum Machine Review
by on December 17, 2010
We like our phones for a variety of reasons: calling, texting, taking pictures of interesting dogs we see etc, etc.
But sometimes we want to rock out, and don’t want to do it on Guitar Hero or something equally non-drum-like.
Step forward Drum Machine, which does exactly what you’d expect it to do. Bash a selection of drums to your heart’s content, play the cymbals and snares independently or at the same time with multi-touch, and even create your own layout with customised sounds.
We like the fact if you hit different parts of a cymbal, the noise changes – also being able to put in disco lights is cool.
But for the more professional drummer, we can’t help but think this is a little pointless, as the reaction times of the drums are a little bit off every so often. It’s very slight, but it’s still an issue.
Also, if the lock screen comes on, the app will resume for ages then crash, and you’ll have to go through the interminable load screen once more.
A good idea with things like recording mode for you to show off your latest creations, but still needs a lot more work to be less frustrating.
