Here’s a user review, via thesoundtestroom, of Different Drummer for iPad – aka “your secret weapon in the quest for innovative beats that make sense yet defy the status quo”.
Different Drummer has a unique feature set, but was met with skepticism on its release, because of the developer’s equally unique approach to pricing and marketing the app. (It was originally priced at $300, now $49.99).
