iBassist turns your iPad into a versatile bass player to jam or compose anywhere and create grooves for installed drum apps, so the jam enters a new level. Additionally, it sends progression chords by MIDI, so you can have any synth/piano on the background and a proper band jamming instantly.
Bass lines are based in degrees, so you can apply any chord progression to any bass line. A valuable tool to apply different bass grooves to your songs. The jam tool brings musical variations and new ideas on the way.

Great potential but still not quite there
First of all, I have many drums app from this developer and they are outstanding. This app unfortunately is not quite there yet, since crashes are frequent especially in live mode. I have tried to identify the cause of the crashes and employed the minimum number of outputs (just the bass) and I was not able to reduce the frequency of crashes. I am sure that will be improved in the future. For now, I cannot use this app in my setup.

Amazing app on a lot of levels!
I found this app useful on multiple levels. Technical drummers working on patterns will find it useful as a tutor to teach a basic pattern by allowing you to slow down the rhythm and isolate various instrument parts to practice. Once a part is learned you can mute instruments or change volume levels and you can take over a part of the rhythm. The app doesn’t limit you like a lot of tutorials with the jam function you can learn where to insert various flair and signature patterns. It also performs like your own personal drummers and is enjoyable to set your preferences and play them for listening enjoyment. The song feature helps you learn how the patterns can be interwoven for listening or dancing. I really can’t express how impressed I am with this application from instruction to entertainment it has been very versatile and scalable based on your preference. Side note I am listening to a rhythm with 100% swing and jam intensities as background music as I write this review. I have been searching for something like this for years and I am really impressed with this application.

The sounds in this app are amazing. Have a lot to figure out and would really like to be able to just copy and paste . Have used it with GarageBand a few times so far. Works in inner app well on my iPhone six but on my 5 it has a click at the beginning each time and it doesn't seem to work right sometimes as it starts immediately when I hit record instead of after the count in. Anyway it really is everything I could ask for as a non drummer and look forward to figuring everything out. If he made a bass app that worked the same way and together with this app, wow!!!! The only negative is I don't understand why there is a manual of some sort for this. There are so many nuances and it doesn't seem like a big deal to make one basic manual for all of these apps.
The most groovy drum app for iOS!
The new Funk Drummer is full of rhythms and sounds with the essence of authentic Funk, from classic R&B to fusion. Round robin samples brings organic feel along with the best improvisation tool. Pure groove.

Rating app does not add new sound set?
I’ve tried rating the app multiple times, but it doesn’t register with the app. I get the message “No rating found”. Other than that it works great. Nice sounds and easy to use.

Great drum app! Get it you won’t regret it.
A full brazilian rhythm section with thousands of grooves and sounds with the best round robin samples. Traditional percussion and adapted rhythms for drumset, all the magic of Brazilian percussion at your fingertips.

Unintuitive and expensive
I wanted to like this app as I specialize in Brazilian music but found it difficult to use. Overly complicated and the sounds are not realistic. Not worth the money in my opinion.
The richness of Caribbean rhythms.
Complete rhythm library with all the afro-cuban,dominican and latin beats. Son, guaguancó, merengue, 6/8 bembé ... with the highest sound quality.

Excellent Latin Metronome/Play along
This app is a very well done drum machine programmed with an enormous amount of rhythms including Batá, Dominican and Puerto Rican rhythms. Highly recommended. I'm a percussionist/drummer and I really like this app to study along with on my main percussive instruments or as a drum machine for practicing piano and bass. Personally though, I don't understand the use of the Puerto Rican flag on the app icon since a good 80% of the rhythms are actually Afro CUBAN. Bomba from Puerto Rico only has 4 presets and I don't even see a plena preset. Merengue and bachata on the other hand has a whole category. I appreciate the Puerto Rican contribution to hispanic American music as much as anyone but in this case if the overwhelming amount of presets on your app are Cuban then use that flag or use a neutral no flag icon.
The best metronome for iPhone and iPad, is also an intuitive and handy groove box - drum machine with high definition sounds. Supermetronome is the essential tool for any musician. And now with the acclaimed Beat Hider and Progressive Tempo

Stop flashing play button please!
I would like an option to stop the play button from flashing. It's driving me crazy. Other than that this app is super useful.
