Shape Of Rhythms is a beat and groove practice and learning tool, which represents beats and rudiments as dots in circles. Every circle represents a surface, and every dot means a hit on that surface. It is like a playable sheet music for drummers, but the beats are represented with unique cool dynamic animation, along with realistic high quality drum sample sounds. A clock-hand moves with the speed of the given tempo, and plays the dots. This makes fun learning experience, and easy memorization!
In the app you can find and make and save beats based on different kinds of rules like style (rock, funk, drum and bass, jazz, metal) timing (triplet, dotted, eight, sixteen note) and many more (drum rudiments, hand order exercises) and the combination of these. Behind the app there is a well designed, curated database, which is based on professional sheet music, and makes endless possibilities of beats with the help of complex logic.
When a note (dot) is being played, it is getting bigger. Accent and ghost notes are represented with bigger or smaller dots. Hand order is represented with color: blue means left, red means right hand.
You can start to play a beat by pressing the play button. With the help of the jump arrows you can select which beat to start from
It shows which quarter is being played currently, if the beat consist of multiple quarters. You can select a quarter by set the slider into position.
You can "freeze" a selected quarter, or beat within a longer beat with the help of the repeat buttons. If you got stuck in a part, just freeze the given beat or quarter, and play it back with slower tempo repeatedly. Once you got it you can disable the freeze and move on!
With the help of the tempo button you can set the speed of the playback as you wish, so you can learn the most difficult beats easily as well.
There is a built in metronome in the app, which can help you keep the time. You can turn on the metronome, set count in before beat, or if you want you can mute the sound with the help of the play mode switches.
You can select favorites, so you can find them easier later.
