Yamaha needs more apps!

Resolved

As a prospective drum learner who is also starting his son in drum lessons, I wish there were more instructional drumming applications (iPad for me). I'm drawn to Yamaha hardware but Roland seems to have a leg up for beginners in the app department with their V-Drums Friend Jam. I'd love to see more from Yamaha in this area. I'm thinking seriously about a DTX562k set but I'd really like to have some training applications for iPad that work directly with the DTX kits.

    Hey, Chris!

    Have you checked out our SongBeats and DTX400 Drum Lessons Apps? The former allows you to practice along with and learn any MIDI Song from your favorite Artist (you can download from the web or purchase at www.yamahamusicsoft.com) - not just genre-specific backing tracks - and was just updated with DTX562K compatibility. The latter has tons of video content ranging from setup to technique to beginner-focused rhythm training. Both are compatible with iPad. Also, the DTX502 actually has eight different training exercises built-into it that will help you practice and hone different aspects of your drumming and give you a grade at the end! Lastly, the DTX502Touch App gives you an extra cool user interface for your DTX502 module.

    I'm not sure what we have coming down the line for DTX900M, but keep checking back to DTX.com and yamaha.com for future updates!

    Hope that helps, friends!

    So is it available now the IOS Touch App for the DTX900M?

    For the flagship of DTX drums, it shure feel we've been let down, when comparing to cheaper model....
    Hope to have a similar app to program our DTX900M as the DTX502 and DTX700.

    Agreed! There need to be more drum apps. My son plays the piano and I was able to find a ton of piano apps that were really good. However, I have had trouble finding drum apps that are legit.

    Here's a resource that I think is great for these:
