● Sharing - install the Soundcloud app from the market and you can share beats right to soundcloud (see Electrum's Menu->More->Share Exported)

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

    Love it. Well worth paying for the full version. I don't know any other app where you can alter the samples and add your own.

    Use this with the sonic chop app made by nikotwenty. Best combo on the market! Made a beat in my car with the car stereo and the bass was crazy!

    This is a very fun app but it's hard to take too seriously because of latency problems. When I touch a sample/drum pad the response is nearly 1 second behind. And I'm using a more modern phone, so it shouldn't be a cpu or memory related issue
