DrummaTicks Release History
What is DrummaTicks
DrummaTicks is a drum machine that uses your computer sound card to play drum patterns. You can also think of DrummaTicks as a very advanced metronome. If you can't afford a professional drum player willing to teach you the beat, then Drummaticks is probably the next best thing, at a much, much lower cost...
Like metronomes, drum machines come in a wide variety of hardware and software products. While many high end drum machines have features geared towards song composition and recording, DrummaTicks, like a metronome, is a training and learning tool, easy to use and less expensive to buy.
Who should use DrummaTicks
- Easy-to-use Metronome.
- Drum Pattern Player.
- Drum Pattern Composer (export to Midi file).
- Speed Trainer.
- Tempo Trainer.
If you are a musician, whether you are a beginner or a pro, you know how important it is to be able to keep the beat, keep a steady tempo or play rhythmic patterns in synch with the tempo and with other musicians. Most music teachers will agree that one should practice ones instrument with a metronome; it is essential to the development of any learning musician. Now you could go out and buy a metronome but why do that? For the same price or less, you can get DrummaTicks, a drum machine that does everything a metronome does and a lot more!
And because DrummaTicks lets you play common drum patterns such as Rock, Disco, Samba etc, it is a lot more inspiring than the tic-toc of a metronome.
In addition to common metronome usage, drum player can also use DrummaTicks to learn complex rhythm patterns starting at a slow tempo, and slowly getting to faster tempos.
