Also check out my ReLoop music sequencer, which allows you to sequence loops just like Garageband or Sony's ACID.


PHONE STATE/IDENTITY - used to stop playing if a phone call comes in. IDENTITY is NOT used for anything and it not read at all.

SDCARD WRITE/READ - used to read sound files, and to save settings, patches, and drummkits

Recently changed in this version

4.8.5 - Reverb has been disabled on Lollipop devices since it just causes crashes. This may hopefully fix the app startup issue on lollipop. If not please email me so I can get more information

    In spite of what websites and reviews here tell me, this app is not nearly the best Android has to offer for creating beats. No grid view (you have to switch screens when programming different drum sounds / remember exactly what sound is where) is the biggest problem. Moreover, I found that G-stomper Rhythm is a free app, yet it runs circles around this one in terms of features and usability. If s

    This App has some great features. However, unlike Groove Mixer, you cannot see your entire sequence on one screen. This makes it hard to remember which drums you have activated and when they play. Disappointing for a paid App. Electrum Paks do not install on this phone as the path they are looking for does not exist. Workaround is to export the APK and rename it ZIP. You can then extract just the
