    Hey guys,

    I have been developing a simple drum machine for the Android OS. I have re-written the app about 3 times now to get the best performance and I think I am on the right track. However, I want to get some feedbacks as I am developing and updating the app. I have released a version to the Play Store for that purpose. I thought I would drop link here and get some suggestions from you guys as I am certain a good number of you enjoy making music. I am a musician myself but I am not very experienced. So any ideas or feedbacks would be greatly appreciated to improve this app. I have tested it on a couple of devices and it seems to be working fine. So I am curious to see how it behaves on a wider range of devices. Thanks

    @ziki (found that funny)

    Based on my first test play.

    Im using a T-Mobile-us samsung Gt-19300 and this app work.

    Also this mobile is emulated by my computer maybe this information could help you to fix the next part

    Bug : just 1 at this moment

    repro step ; at start of the app tap play this should have a hardcore drum beat. How I fixed that I just tap the undo button then start to have fun with.

    Suggestions and feedback:

    1- Have as default BPM 120 like most common DAW the default BPM is 120 not 90.

    2- Allow the change the BPM by sliding the BPM "info on the blue monitor" this is faster and reduce the number of step to do that.

    3- Skin option, his is not because I hate your graphic work but this could be cool to have choice.maybe a total of 10 skin completely different could be great.

    4- Add a pre-play editor : allowing you to add and set effect like reverb or dist one each pad.Also with a slider under each pad allowing to set the volume of each sample.

    5- add a save option allowing you to save your beat on wav/mp3 file who you should be able to put this on your DAW for a future song.

    6- be able to change the "step note counter" by a bar counter or more

    Pretty all my first report like I said I hope this will help you. I will send you a another with the future update.
    Feel free to reply me if you don't understand something because english is note my main language so i have lack of vocabulary to explain things.

    p.s this is my longer looperman comment ever !!

    the only problem I got was the hardcore "default" record.

    If start the app then recording my beat then play i will hearn some hardcore beat.

    so I have to clean before recording once done the recording function is nickel

    I may make a video about that if we need one

    Hi Ziki, we are very unlucky for some very epic strange reason my recorder "Hypercam" have some fatal error ( rash everytime I hit record) so i tried a another called camstudio and for some other strange reason the sound isn't recorded.So I litterally gave up for now. if you have a free recorder software to recommend me I will try and if this work we will both be happy right .

    p.s sorry for the late reply I was on a epic projet
    only if you are curious

    Thanks man. I think I found the problem and fixed it. It will be available on the next update. Nice piece there. What gears do you use? Is it strictly software?

    Hello dear Ziki, better late than never, the freeware I use is bluestacks google it for more info about this.

    My only question for now is do you have a date for the next update on your link I saw updated "January 15, 2015"

    anyway I will soon retest this version if there are few new features

    agains I wish you best succes

    Hi, after some considerations (with your feedback and suggestions), I have decided to create a new (better) project which I just published. Please feel to test it here:

    I am convinced this is way better than the old app. Thanks again.
