Roughly based on ideas from my PocketDrummer for PocketPC from 15 years ago, PocketDrummer is a full-featured drum machine with most of the features of stand-alone, performance oriented, drum synthesizers used by musicians. It has a number of unique features absent in almost all devices of this type. It is a great choice for practice sessions or on stage performing.
Plug your tablet or phone from the earphone jack into an amplifier and use PocketDrummer for performance.
PocketDrummer is landscape only and works best on an Android tablet, but it runs on phones with Android 2.3 or better as well. It has been tested using an Acer Iconia Tab and a Google Nexus One.

** Easily create drum patterns using the PatternEditor with 12, 16, or 24 "ticks" per measure and 3, 4, or 6 beats per measure.
** Patterns are quickly and easily created, loaded, edited, and saved using the PatternEditor's intuitive graphic layout.
** Patterns are saved in an easy to read and text editable xml format.
** Saved patterns can be deleted or renamed in the PatternFileManager.
** The first version comes with 9 built-in drum sounds plus accent. Future versions will include multiple selectable drum "sets".
