It's a solid app. So much garbage on the play store so it's refreshing to see an app that's made with a bit of thought & passion. There are other apps that are on par with this & also completely free but I don't mind paying a few £ to get the full version. The developers aren't greedy & have produced a really good app. Like me, please consider purchasing the full version because frankly they do deserve our support. So much money grabbing tripe, I gladly support Quality & fairness & it is good

found an old phone cleaning today and immediately opened up this app and started sampling it. A really versatile drum machine and the timing on it can get so funky. It’s really great to try out any idea or pattern. If you have an android and are into techno. It’s a must. Please please make an iOS version! ❤️
