You might have seen this in Apple commercials.

If you have friends, this is one of the most fun music apps, period. I have it, it's like a 4 man band in your hand. Everything is super proffessional, graphics are great, you can record, there are stompboxes, everything. It's a great go-to app when you have music inclined company. Three long time friends of mine, all professional drummers who still live in the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area, came over recently and we were acting like 4 year olds with this app...nearly broke the glass on my ipad mini.

Forgot to mention that these are the same developers behind DM1, a great drum machine.

Is it just me or do the drums sometimes bug out? I've had this a while now and never been able to figure it out. If you tap rapidly on a drum the sound will eventually change and sound dulled, then stick like that.

This one's fun to break out and have a mini jam around the iPad - my wife, daughter and I play with this from time to time.

(Though more often my wife goes to her piano I break out Thumbjam and our daughter boots up Bebot. )

Yeap, i own a lot of music apps, and this is one of those i use sometimes, because it's really well made, you can easily put down an idea you don't want to forget. Or you can play with friends.

Recommended for a buck!

Sorry for my bad english.

I know, it's of a higher quality than some 10 dollar and up music apps I've bought. :cough iMini needs Retronyms Tabletop cough:

Hehe, true, i'm not a tabletop fan.. But one of the dev spoke about audiobus on discchord.com. Fingers crossed!

And imini, in stand-alone mode is really great, IMO. (I use it with the alesis i/o dock, so i'm not bothered by tabletop)

I agree, a lot of expensive apps are ... really boring or useless, compared with this one.

Sorry for my bad english.
