    I was searching for a virtual drum app that:
    Has a customizable stereo kit
    Has a large instrument library with high quality samples
    Has independent modifiable parameters like volume, pan and pitch
    Has a midi out, as I want to trigger the samples with my Roland e-kit

    Does anyone have any suggestions¿
    I discovered Drums XD, which seems to have everything I want, but it seems it hasn’t received an update in 3 years and reviews are claiming that the midi out is unresponsive and there is no tech-support for the app. There were two downloadable version is in the App Store, so I was hoping one of them was an updated version, but it had no update information available and I decided not to risk it because getting a refund on a bogus app is pretty much impossible, as I’m sure many of you are aware. Does anyone know of a similar app that I could use?

    Thanks in advance

    I’m probably suggesting the obvious, but have you looked at Garage Band? While not a dedicated Drum app, it does have a basic set of drum tools (so I’m told); and includes MIDI support.

    At least you know it’s supported.

    Not being a drummer (or a musician) that’s about the limit of what I can suggest.
