Drum Loop App/Website recommendations with tempo control for practicing timing/feel


I recently watched a Paul Davids video where he showed an app he developed that will play drum loops in different styles, tempos, etc. Unfortunately it isn’t available for IOS so I’m looking for a suitable alternative. Ideally one where I can just pick a specific genre (punk, funk, rock, etc) and then alter the tempo down to suit my speed. Any recommendations?


I use this on linux but they have it for mac and windows too. it’s the only drum machine software iv’e ever used so I can’t say if it’s good or bad, never had anything to compare it too. But it is free and open source.

Hydrogen is great, but you have to build your own loops (unless you can find some online to load into it).

I don’t know about iOS apps, but a nice resource on Youtube is Lumbeat https://www.youtube.com/user/LumBeat

It’s not quite the same as an app like Loopz, but it may be useful.

On iOS I use Drum Beats +. It has various patterns available without paying including several blues rhythms which I wanted. It is easy to change the bpm when using the app and there are several drum sound options but I only use one.
I use it now in place of a metronome for almost everything.
