FREE Flamenco App for Android 

Hi Everybody.
I've developed an aplicattion with rythm's recordings and metronomes for different flamenco styles. This application is 100% free , and is still under construction, but you can download and test it.

I would really apreciate comments and suggestions. Thanks and a big hugg from Seville, Spain !!

RE: FREE Flamenco App for Android (in reply to yoquese1425

Just downloaded this. First impressions are that it's really nice. It looks good. For each style there are some loops at different speeds (palmas, cajon, & other percussion instruments), and you can switch from loops to a flamenco metronome for each palos. The flamenco metronome has a speed dial so you can easily adjust speed. The loops however are only available at a set speed e.g for SpB there are currently 4 loops at 130, 145, 160, 170. It would be nice if a user could tweak the speed of the loops, eg. play the 145 loop at 150.

An enormous thanks for this app. I expect I'll be using it a lot, because apart from A Compas, there really isn't much out there for Android.

The loops are nice. But on my phone the alegrias meteronome lurches even worse than other lurchy Android meteronomes. I've little faith in Android meteronomes and sadly this is no more steady than any of the others. Could just be my phone. I hope this works better for others. I am enjoying the loops, although VLC and an mp3 file has the advantage of finer speed control. The nice thing with the app is it's less hassle.

I'm starting to think now, there has to be a reason Dr Compas was never released on Android. They said years ago it was planned. But perhaps this is off topic & I should start an Android hate club in the off topic section.

Great looking app here with really nice loops. Too bad I never had a meteronome on this phone (not sure my previous Android was as bad) who's compas was nothing more than a little better than my own left foot.

I develop apps for a living and Android is a challenge - so many different manufacturers have so many different hardware capabilities, so synching is going to be hit and miss.

Thanks Dudnote for your comments.
I understand what you say about metronome section, seems like the app works very different in each Android, depending mostly on phones RAM memory.
Let me know if the Loops Section at least sounds good (I mean if they sound without jumping or tempo variations).
Thanks a lot :)

Thumbs up for the loops section. I think my current phone is a bit naff on the hardware side, so any software on this phone can find itself fighting for RAM - sometimes even playing mp3s on VLC can stall, but it's rare enough to be tolerated. But so far I had no lurches with the loops on your app and will continue to use them. Thanks for the app!!!
