  1. What’s Sound Module mode?
    Been intrigued by those Lumbeat apps. Wish they were AUv3. Bought iBassist during the Black Friday sale. The sequencing is pretty neat and integration with other Lumbeat apps could be fun. Not that satisfied with the sounds, though. iFretless Bass is more to my liking and it supports AUv3 as well as MPE.
    This Jazz Drummer app sounds pretty good to me. Could work well as a sound output for iReal Pro progressions.

    1. Probably Sound Module mode means that it’s drum sounds can be played by an external MIDI sequencer (and in that mode, not its own sequencer).

      I agree that the sounds in iBassist could be improved. IIRC, the releases didn’t sound very natural.

      I think jazz/swing/bebop drumming is probably the most difficult to sound authentic. The rest of the LumBeat apps I have do the best job of adding improvised fills into the mix. The fills and grooves here seem a little less “normal”, but they still sound quite good.
