    Excellent. Look forward to seeing how you make out with connecting this up to external sounds. Happy happy Sir Doug.

  • Well, this sounds great...The price is a bit high in my opinion. It would be nice to have a bundle for these apps

    A niche market of a niche market I suppose...

  • My initial thought was I don’t need middle eastern drums - but then I heard your demo and it sounds wonderful! May have to reconsider.

  • I'm here to report that LMMED works great in tandem with DrumJam!

  • I thought I didn't need this because I have Drumjam. But after watching this, I am going to bite the bullet. Thanks Doug.

  • Somewhere I have a $50 gift card as part of my 5 years service award, that's that accounted for, nice one Doug and wishing a great holiday to you and yours.

    Quality stuff, worth the $.

    Great quality, as always from this dev. But nearly £18.... :o

    I guess, just like him, we all have to figure out what our price point is....

    Sure. I just don’t get why these apps are priced that high, especially for niche products.

    The more niche a product is, the fewer copies it's likely to sell, and so the less revenue the dev is likely to make. Niche products therefore need to be higher priced than mass-market ones in order to be economically viable to develop. Let's call this one boutique :)

    It’s a sound theory. But I wonder how many more copies would be sold at £9.99.

    Even, a copy of this app, and another from the same dev. About £20 for a couple of great drum apps sounds good value, but the better part if £40 for the same apps means casual customers are going to shy away,

    I think it’d be hard to find another app that does this as well, and easily (based on Doug’s vid and the drummers I’ve used). For anyone wanting a nice, easy to create, changing ethnic drum backing this seems to have it nailed.

    I’ve bought a ton of drum apps over the years with this sort of thing in mind, and none sound or work as good as the one in this vid. Even my desktop Kontact stuff isn’t as fun and intuitive as this.

    I reckon it’s worth it, and there’s always room for a sale.

    Yes please.

  • I think it sounds rather weird when there are repeating rolls per pattern, and too much variation, with the traditional sound sets. But for electronic music, using Mid East Drummer as a drum sequencer to trigger synths, it may work

    It's a good question, but Luis has plenty of experience in this market so I trust he knows how to maximize profit.

    A Happy New Year for him, then. :)

  • Has anyone figured out how to tune these drums?

  • I ran it through Ape Filer and Discord4... nice!
