What is PercussionTutor? Description of PercussionTutor

MODERN DRUMMER MAGAZINE (October 2015 issue):
“This is a must-have for anyone wanting an encyclopedia of world percussion rhythms at their fingertips.”

PercussionTutor is an educational app for dedicated world percussion enthusiasts. The app and its free companion book feature a unique library of world rhythms and instruments played by leading percussionists and drummers. A time stretching feature and a metronome give the users the option to practice at their own pace.

NO IN-APP PURCHASES! Make sure to buy the app now and get all the future content for free. We will release updates on a regular basis adding new rhythms and videos.

“PercussionTutor is truly fantastic and a blast to play along with”. (full review on

Lincoln Goines (electric and acoustic bassist) writes: “This app is an engaging and informative way to check out the original funk. A great tool for musicians, dancers, and all lovers of rhythm”.

Percussive Arts Society: “The interactive application is very thorough [...]. Navigation is simple and the layout is logical and easy to grasp.”

PercussionTutor will allow you to approach South American, Caribbean and West African music in a different way. This app offers you more than a simple play-along. It includes standard notation, videos and specific claves. We also took the outmost care to capture the natural feeling of all those drumming traditions.

For the batá rhythms we even developed a random playback engine that will simulate an actual batá performance.

This app puts you in a live playing situation - just like you learned your mother language. You will sound more natural and more alive and you will awaken to new rhythmic possibilities. It's also a great tool for other musicians, dancers and performers who want to immerse themselves into centuries-old traditional languages.

PercussionTutor Cons

External audio interface crashes it.As per title. If you use iOS built-in audio then no problem. If you want to use a USB interface then it crashes. Devs are aware and don’t care. —— after 1st dev response—- Not me with Logic . I contacted you 26th Feb 2022, you replied saying reinstall. I contacted you 27th Feb saying it’s the external interface causing crash. You didn’t reply. I’ve tested with 4 usb interfaces now. All work fine with other apps: RME Babyface: crash on select rhythm RME Babyface Pro: crash on select rhythm Focusrite 4i4 gen3: works fine! Motu 828es: no crash but no audio Please test and fix your bugs Thanks..Arghh_the_pirateVersion: 5.4

What a dissapoinmentThe work made by the musicians to make this samples is great, but this software needs a great and very important improvement , even if you need to raise the cost of price, or inpurchase add on, when changing the speed it changes the pitch and the sound of the instrument , and complete destroy the original tuning of the instrument by this action, please fix this and maybe add a mixer so we can control loudness of each instrument, thanks.Par-TronicVersion: 4.992
