Dave Liebman

Jazz saxophonist, composer and educator – Miles Davis, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones… Artistic Director of the International Association of Schools of Jazz (IASJ).

“One of my mantras to students is that they practice/play with drums, for the obvious reason that the drums represent the heart beat of modern music, meaning jazz and latin-based rhythms. Mauro has made it possible for anyone to play along with the greatest drummers in the world, historical and contemporary, with the ability to alter tempo. Drumgenius is a great resource that can bring any player closer to the flame.”

Harold Danko

Jazz pianist and composer – Professor of jazz studies & contemporary media at Eastman School of Music.

“Mauro Battisti is a world-class bassist who has created a world-class teaching aid that addresses a fundamental challenge to successful jazz performance practice. Although bassists will benefit greatly from the chance to play their notes in just the right slot at any tempo with the simulated drum grooves, I feel that any instrumentalist would learn much from playing along with these tracks. And I think that drummers in particular will embrace Mauro’s work in identifying and illuminating some of the most important details of their artistic quest. This is a virtuoso educational work by a true musical virtuoso!”

Billy Kilson

Drummer – Ahmad Jamal, Dave Holland, Steps Ahead, Dianne Reeves, George Duke...

"Not only am I impressed with the quality of this app, I am flattered that you have included me!”

Doug Weiss

Bass player and educator – Al Foster, George Coleman, Lee Konitz, Chris Potter, Peter Bernstein, Brian Blade, Jorge Rossy, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Lew Tabakin… Professor at SUNY Purchase College, and The New School University, and ZOOM.

"Dear Mauro, Thank you so much for your contribution to the music in the form of Drumgenius! Of course it was a bassist who came up with that idea! I really enjoy playing with it, now that I can’t play with my friends. Complimenti, and greetings from your fellow bassist!"

“Drumgenius sounds very good; I find it very handy to practice my instrument with real drums pattern that I can have always with me in my phone: thanks Mauro for this App.”

Marcio Doctor

Percussionist and educator – NDR-Bigband, Vince Mendoza, Peter Erskine, Jim Beard, WDR-Bigband, Brecker Brothers, Carla Bley Band, Metropole Orkest... Director of Percussion Studies at the Hamburg School of Music and associate professor at the Hamburg Academy of Music, Germany.  

“Practice makes perfect and using Drumgenius practicing is even more fun! I highly recommend it to any student and professional musician. It’s a fantastic practicing tool, it sounds really good and has been developed with great attention to detail and musicality”. 

Garry Dial

Jazz piano, theory and improvisation teacher at New School and Manhattan School of Music.

“Mauro Battisti, creator of his app Drumgenius, is a genius. It is simply amazing. I don't know how he made an app sound so real. From the jazz beats of Jimmy Cobb to the Brazilian grooves of Duduka Da Fonesca you feel like you are playing with them. Not limited to jazz and Brazilian music Mauro covers the gamut from Afro-Cuban, Caribbean, World, Pop/Rock/Country, R+B/Funky/Hip Hop, to Odd meters .  This is a must for all musicians to practice with a real feel rather than a stiff sounding metronome.”

  • Listen carefully to the drum loop, measure its length, surf on the meter, breath and move your body following the time feel. When you feel comfortable, play or sing, trying to groove with the loop as much as you can and remember: DON’T MISS THE ONE!
  • Click the Clave button to listen to the alternate version of the drum loop with clave. The suggested clave wants to be a point of reference for your explorations around the inner structure of rhythm: the backbone of the beat!
  • Use time stretching wisely. For most of the drum loops I suggest to increase or decrease of no more than a 5% the original bpm
  • All the drum loops have been realized by Mauro Battisti using a master keyboard and drum libraries
