Drum Kit Lite is the free version of Drum Kit, a touch-screen simulator of a six-piece drum kit using real 16-bit sound samples.

The app's interface is a miniature, photo-realistic drum kit, complete with cymbals and pedals, that you just tap to use. The sound has pretty impressive fidelity (best with headphones), and settings let you adjust your kit volume and system volume separately--which helps, for example, if you want to play along with songs from your iPod. Experienced drummers will appreciate nice touches like blending for repeated cymbal taps, while nondrummers can have fun experimenting and trying to pull off drum rolls and rimshots. (Unfortunately, the inevitable--if slightly cynical--placement of a large ad button right next to the kit makes this app a bad choice for entertaining toddlers, who will accidentally buy the full app within seconds.)

Serious drummers will want to buy the full version, with recording capability, multiple kits for different genres, a built-in BPM metronome, and more.

Developer's Description

Drum Kit is the simplest way to make your own beats. Now anyone can play the drums. No experience required. Start playing along to your favorite songs immediately. The best drum app in the App Store just got better. Here's the long awaited sequel to Drum Kit. It's the closest thing to becoming a drummer without actually having a real kit. You can just tap to create your own beats, or you can play along to dozens of popular songs. It's super easy to use. The kit is a classic 4-piece kit with bass drum, snare, floor tom, hi-hat, crash cymbal, and ride cymbal. The hi-hat plays open, closed, and pedal sounds depending on where you tap. The drums animate and the bass drum pedal moves when touched. Drum Kit simulates the most realistic drum playing experience on the App Store. Drum Kit is designed to be as responsive as possible and uses professionally recorded, high quality sounds. It is completely multi-touch and has very low latency. Use it to crank out some beats on the train or play a fill after a punchline. The photorealistic drums and animations make it feel like you're playing a real kit. Features: customize your kit by moving drums around. play along to the MIDI version of many popular songs. record up to 1 minute of video. save video to the camera roll. share video. save and play back songs. Plug into headphones or speakers for a much richer sound experience.
