An App for Drummers. A practicing tool very easy to use and very well done.
“pttrN for drummers » is a random pattern generator. It creates and plays an infinite number of one bar grooves in 4/4, 3/4, 5/4, 12/8 and 7/8. Choose your Hi-Hat figure, pttrN takes care of everything else !”
- You can add a snare drum on 2 and 4, or 3. In « FREE » mode, the snare placement is random.
- You can choose the maximum number of notes in a row (2 by default, 128 max).
- Choose the level : « EASY » mode generates 8th note grooves. MEDIUM, NORMAL and HARD modes generate 16th note grooves with different note density in one bar. (« NORMAL » means that the probability for a snare, a kick or a silence is equal).
A cool feature allows you to add a bass line to the patterns in the Setting page.
A Mixer allows you to set the volume between the metronome, the drums sound and the bass.
An AUTO-CHANGE button will generate a new Groove at the end of the playing pattern. (In the Setting page you can set the number of bar for a pattern (up to 64).
A practice time is also display on the screen.
In summary, a great App for Drummers who like to practice their instrument. Perhaps that the only thing that I would like to have in a future update is a save pattern feature, (if you need to work on a specific pattern for several days).
A Super App!, a Must Have!
Note that you can change the language of the App to French which can be really useful for Drummers because we all know that Drummers have a little brain.
No, I am kidding…
All my apologies...
Stupid French musicians joke...
