@Bubba, The nice thing about deciding on whether Gumdrops is worth full price, is that it's easy to see exactly what it does (if you watch some videos on it). I tried setting up some kind of similar situation in Ableton, which took a lot of time, and I couldn't even see what MIDI I had set up for each loop. That's when I realized how great Gumdrops is. Easy to use, easy to set up patterns, and a lot of fun to play. If you get it and put in a lot of time customizing each pattern with exactly what you want, it will be more than worth it. If you ever wanted to be a good finger drummer, but don't have the time or skill, then Gumdrops is possibly the best drumming app out there.
