    What iPad drum machine app has pre-programmed drum patterns? All I want to do is select a pattern, set the tempo, press start, a drum pattern starts playing, and I start jamming.

    I'm a guitarist, not a drummer. I don't want to program any drum patterns nor use my iPad as a drum pad by tapping on the screen. I just want to jam with some drums by picking an existing pattern, setting the tempo and playing.

    The problem seems to be there are so many apps that only for creating patterns, but why? They already exist and are recreating the wheel. (this is the same problem with Android apps, nothing to just select a pattern and play) I don't like programming drum patterns when so many already exist.

    From another drum machine I have, here are a list of drum patterns. All I have to do is select which pattern, set the tempo, and start jamming. I don't have to create anything:

    8beat1, 8beat2, 8beat3, 16beat1, 16beat2, 16beat3, 16beat4, 16beat5, 16btsw1, 16btsw2, 16btsw3, 16btsw4, 16btsw5, 2/4 1, 2/4 2, 2/4 3, 2/4 4, 2/4 5, 2/4 6, 2/4 7, 3/4 1, 3/4 2, 3/4 3, 3/4swg1, 3/4swg2, 5/4, 3/8 1, 3/8 2, 5/8, 6/8 1, 6/8 2, 6/8 3, 6/8 4, 7/8 1, 7/8 2, 9/8, Pop1, Pop2, Rock1, Rock2, Rock3, Rock4, Rock5, R‚N‚R, Metal1, Metal2, Metal3, Metal4, R‚N‚B1, R‚N‚B2, R‚N‚B3, R‚N‚B4, Blues1, Blues2, 8blues, Bluesfl, Country, Cntrys1, Cntrys2, Jazz1, Jazz2, Jazz3, Jazz4, Fnkrck1, Fnkrck2, Hvyfunk, Jb 1, Jb 2, Njckswg, Motown1, Motown2, Motown3, Motown4, Surf, Reggae1, Reggae2, Reggae3, Bolero, Disco1, Disco2, Disco3, Gogo1, Gogo2, Gogo3, House1, House2, House3, D‚N‚B 1, D‚N‚B 2, Ska1, Ska2, Ska3, 2ndline, Latin1, Latin2, Bossa1, Bossa2, Samba1, Samba2, Rumba, Afro1, Afro2, Clypso1, Clypso2, Songo

    I find myself in much the same position. Especially as i'm kind of new to music creation via an iPad. Been doing my homework though and for myself at least "Sonoma Wire Works" InstantDrummer "Heartbreaker" looks like the best one.

    Happy pickin : )

    Yes, as a working musician, I would love to find pre programmed grooves with lots of variety... All the way from traditional pop grooves to modern loops... Seems like one of the drum machine companies, alesis or boss, might wanna come to the table.. ultimately you could have an ever expandable drum machine right there on your iPad. Anybody heard of such an animal?
