Beats Live

In 2020 long time partner in drumming crime Hans Eijkenaar and his wife Marieke released yet another loops app in the iTunes Appstore, with me.

Available in the iTunes Store since 2020 and selling worldwide.


The ultimate play along-study-groove-practice-with app in your iPhone or iPad!
Corona makes this a hard to deal with period in our lives as musicians and we are locked in but this might just help you out!
400 loops performed live by Hans Eijkenaar (drums) and Jeroen de Rijk (percussion) with tempo control and live mode (loops following in perfect tempo sync).

It’s like a metronome in many ways…………but a groove instead of a click:-) 


Beats Live


Technical info:


Consider this app to be the metronome that you actually love to study and perform with!
Not just a click but a rhythm section that performed live in one real recording room, no edits, no manipulation but raw, natural groove in many styles.

Around 400 loops that you can study, jam, perform live or teach with!

250 loops (all 2 bars in length) in many genres performed by a live studio drummer and percussion player and another 150 performed on drums only (e.g., jazz and rock)
