Find out what it feels like to rock out behind a real drum kit with this drumming simulator. Drum Kit displays a bird’s eye view of a drum kit – all you have to do is touch the different drums to make beats.
The sound of each drum is realistic and replicates the qualities of a true drum set well. The program is very intuitive and requires very little explanations. You simply touch a drum to trigger it. If you are coordinated and dexterous enough with your fingers it is possible to create a real drum beat.
Drum Kit delivers some insight into what it’s like to be a drummer, but not much more. Sometimes the reaction time of the program is not perfect, and the drums are very close together, making it likely to have some miss-hits.
The Bottom Line:
Drum Kit is a fun application to play around with, but it could be a bit better. Perhaps if it provided some backing tracks to play along with, or offered a more fine-tuned interface, it would be a bit more entertaining. Still, as is, it is a fairly satisfying package.
