Gone are the days of spending hours upon hours playing the rudiments on your practice pad with little results. Rudiment King is the world’s first drumming app designed to help you quickly and easily learn the drum rudiments and change your drumming forever!More Info
Right now, Rudiment King is only available in the App Store for iOS 8.1 or later. We’re looking into developing it for Android, but in the meantime we appreciate your patience and support!
Rudiment King is an iOS game where you can use your thumbs/fingers to tap out the rudiments on the screen of your iPhone or iPad (iOS 8.1 or later).
You’ll enjoy a practice mode where you can select any rudiment, study the pattern, start the metronome, and tap along the pattern until you know it! And once you know your rudiments, you can play the real Rudiment King game where you’ll tap-out the rudiments against the clock, see how long you can last before the timer hits zero, and compete against your own personal records as well as your friends!
Here’s a video with all the details:
Rudiment King is easy to learn and you’ll be playing within minutes! Because of the nature of drumming compared to tapping on a screen, you’ll need to learn a couple quick gestures - such as for flams or drags. But there’s a full tutorial prepared for you to help you get started!
Rudiment King is a game where you’ll be able to improve your memory and recollection of the rudiments, but it doesn’t include hitting anything with sticks or measuring your actual performance on a practice pad or the drums.
Of course, we always recommend using a practice pad or drum set when you can, but Rudiment King is a great way to have a bit more fun while studying the rudiments or to practice when your gear isn’t available.
Sorry, but Rudiment King won’t listen to your playing or measure your results on the practice pad or the drums. But it will help you improve your cognitive recall of the rudiments -- and we’re sure you’ll notice an improvement on the drums!
