Completely unusable on my phone. Clock is dramatically inconsistent. Cleared patterns, presets, etc. The problem is still there. Such a disappointment. It did work for about a week, that was nice. I'll change my review to 5 once and if the issue gets resolved.

That's a pretty low end device - try turning on the option (in the Bpm/Len/Settings screen in Electrum) for higher thread priority

This is the best drum machine app that you can get I use it everyday I haven't ever showed my appreciation for it but I love this app it's great for sampling found sounds or just straight-up grain manipulation or just mixing tracks in an experimental way I've made probably 500 songs on this

Awesomeness the only app i know of that allows live playback of samples without having to reload the track and start from the beginning creating a more natural feel and ease of creativity that i feel is worth far more than a dollar but hey thats cool with me putting the power of production in the hands of the average budding producer in the trenches the ability to express themselves and make some awesome $#i+ thanks for the years of excellent products ps electrum makes "thee" bitcoin wallet
