RUDE--DRUM RUDIMENT TRAINING This app is essential for, and will benefit, beginner through advanced drummers. Easy UI. Swipe left and right to scroll through rudiments, and swipe up and down to control bpm. OR hit your phone's MENU button to open a self explanatory list of features, including my favorite: "EXAMPLES". Click on the EXAMPLES button and you're taken to a website with detailed instructional videos pertaining to the rudiment you are currently studying. EDIT: Metronome sometimes inaccurate. I use app for rudiment reference.
Seems to only give a click While i appreciate you can change the bpm, i found it actually lacks the sound of the specific rudiment your wanting to practice. Im aware that i can click a link to youtube, but i find this defeats the purpose. Personally id rather hear & read each specific rudiment while also being able to increase the bpm. But if there's another feature im missing can you please inform me. Cheers
Rude I like this app. Gives a concise description of a drum rudiment a shows the corresponding videos to practice and apply it. But one problem that I'm having is with interface; it is hard to go from one rudiment to another . When I want to go to the next rudiment for instance, it jumps way far to another rudiment that I Don want.
Not being able to change screen orientation is a deal breaker. Fix that and add a search form for rudiments, the ability to add my own rudiments, and a rudiment playlist builder to save time practicing and you have a 5 star app.
Doesn't give an audio sample of the rudiments, just a metronome click and visual notations. Useless if you don't know what the rudiments sound like to begin with.
Besides Vic Firth Besides Vic Firth, This is a awesome app. It has all the rudiments and helped me a lot. I wish it just had a play along option for the rudiments I don't know. Other then that, It's a great app for all percussionist.
