All great musicians have one thing in common: perfect timing.

HeyDrummer is a smartphone app that helps you improve your timing by practicing and jamming with tempo adjustable drum tracks instead of a boring metronome.

It's is super easy to use. You don't need to buy expensive drum software or learn how to program drum tracks. Just open the app, choose a drum track and start your practice session or simply jam along.
