Each drummer recorded a special set of beats for Wheelhouse, and played those beats all the way from stone-cold slow to smoking fast. Wheelhouse stitches these together so you can play any tempo in between.

As well as this huge range of tempos, most beats have an options of 1, 2, 4, or 8 measure phrases or loops. We've worked hard to make each one of these make musical sense.

Like a metronome, Wheelhouse is a great tool for playing time, but even more, it‘s for helping develop your feel.

For any kind of instrumentalist — playing with Wheelhouse will help you become a better musician, better listener, and better collaborator.

For drummers — take a deep dive into how these pro‘s use subtle sounds and dynamics to elevate a groove.

And some of our biggest fans are songwriters, who use it to work out new material. It‘s more fun and more musical!

Don‘t miss Brevan‘s Latin section, with four different percussion parts you can mix. And if you need a little inspiration, try rolling the dice for something new.

Ten days after you install, Wheelhouse will require you to subscribe. Wheelhouse is an independently made app, and your subscription directly supports our musicians and the app.
