Hi all,

I'd like to find an app that would provide a bunch of various drum grooves that I could play along with. There are a million apps available so I thought I'd ask the bass brethren for input. Anyone have a favorite?

Thanks, Jack

For iPhone/iPad I've been pleased with the Drum Beats+ app.

Here's a bit of the review of the app from Guitar World magazine.

"The Drum Beats+ drum machine app by Ninebuzz is a simple and fun collection of drum loops for stress-free jamming and songwriting accompaniment.

The app now includes more than 100 beats. Ranging from 1 to 4 bars in length, these loops are just right for casual practice, exploring song ideas or even live performances. Plug into speakers for the best sound (or feel free to play right from your device).

Even for the most app-challened among us, Drum Beats+ is incredibly easy to use. Just tap a beat to start playing. Tap "Tempo" to change the speed. Tap the "Star" icon to save a favorite beat.

The app was created for people who simply need great beats fast without fiddling with machines or waiting on a human. It's true that the app store has plenty of drum kit simulator apps, plus more complex beat-making apps; however, for the musicians who just want great beats on demand, there really weren't any serious options until Drum Beats+."

Just right for my level of technical expertise!
