CajonCajon – Simulated cajon (box drum) on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Available In: App Store       Price: $0.99  

CajonCajon CajonCajon by HULABREAKS is a simulated cajon (box drum) on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

A Cajon is a kind of box drum played by slapping the front face (generally thin plywood) with the hands. If you want to see one in action, check out American Idol. They have been known to use one frequently.

But this app really doesn’t come close to actually playing one. The app includes two different sound types of a cajon; the normal sound (clear, high quality) and cheep sound (noisy, with atmosphere.) But regardless of which setting the sound is cheap. I even hooked up my iPhone to a subwoofer to see if there was a difference in sound. It confirmed that I would only use this app when watching people’s kids.

This app, from a drummer’s perspective, really isn’t worth $0.99. It would be a fun app for a kid to play with in order to entertain them for a few minutes, but as a drummer, I would never use this in a live setting. That is what looping programs or an actual cajon is for.

  1. That’s what we get for giving the drumming app to the drummer…brutal honesty.

  2. Nice! I’m a drummer too and curently have on my iPhone BeatLoop, DigiDrummer and Drummer apps. BeatLoop has great sounds, but DigiDrummer is for me the best to play with. Can you tell me which other worthy apps are available at the app store. Also, which is the best metronome app? Thanks

  3. I hope to start doing quite a few apps for musicians. Shoot me suggestions through my website’s contact form

  4. Holland: Tulip City, Michigan is a cultural feast of events: dance, art,
    music and historic Hope College right downtown. From
    this airport, guests are able to rent a car or, as a more inexpensive
    option, take a shuttle from the airport to the
    north entrance. The articles and segments written on its pages are
    written by fishing aficionados and specialists themselves.

  5. However, this diet is kind of controversial as the reviews about its effectiveness are mixed and somewhat puzzling.

    You also not need to worry about keeping these HCG Pellets into
    the right kind of environment unlike most of the other HCG drops that either needs to
    be frozen or kept at room temperature. 4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0cm; mso-para-margin-right:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:

  6. Fashion trends tend to change with likes and dislikes of fashion setters and followers.
    After washing the clip-in extensions, simply air dry
    them and store in a safe place. If a celebrity trend is meant to be repeated by the general public, you will be able
    to compliment rather than stare with horror at the woman in front
    of you at the local grocery store check-out line.
