    The upside is that it does what you expect from a drum machine really well and sounds great. The downside is controlability, as a drum machine it really needs a footswitch at least. Maybe it could be an option to use a USB footswitch on a future version. It would also be useful (perhaps as an alternative to an external footswitch) to have a song mode or pre-set pattern control mode. I found only

    I don't know if this app will stay in my usual Live Worship kit, but it sure has got me out of a tight spot cheap. What's missing to make this really work? Set lists, maybe even integrate a selection wheel into live mode for easy tempo changes.

    I have used many hardware drum machines to jam along to over the years and this is by far the easiest and best to use. The sounds are great too. It would be great if you quicky could change kits for a given pattern (e.g. play a ballad pattern with an 808 kit) or perhaps I am missing something obvious?

    Great features. Sound is good, especially with limiter enabled. Works perfect on my S2.
