Drum Kit is the simplest way to make your own beats.

Drum Kit is the fastest and most realistic drum app in the App Store. As featured on Apple iPod Touch billboards and TV ads.

Check out Drum Kit in Ke$ha's video Die Young:

Play along to songs in your iPod Library and record your own versions of them. Layer tracks on top of each other, such as adding cymbals and fills to your existing songs. You can also create your own original songs.

Drum Kit is the perfect app for cranking out that fill for the punchline for lame jokes. But it offers much, much more.

The audio engine in Drum Kit has been designed to provide the fastest possible response on all devices. The latest version has no delay or latency when playing drums. It's impossible to make a faster drum app.

"If you are a drummer or constantly tapping on things, you may really enjoy this app" -Ars Technica

"You know those beats you have always found to be missing in your favorite song? Well, you can make it happen now" – Katie Gatto,

If you like Drum Kit, check out Drum Kit 2. It lets you play along to MIDI songs and keep score, like RockBand or Guitar Hero. Search the App Store for "Drum Kit 2".
