Rhythm Lab

The ultimate rhythm app for the iPad.

Rhythm Lab Version 4.0 coming soon!

A major update has been in the works and brings many awesome new features to an already-great app!

See below for what you can expect from version 4.0.


Intuitive interface. Fluid design. Scroll, Tap, Listen, Loop.

Easily go to any part of the Lab using the Tab Navigator. Navigate inside the Tap Screen using the easy-to-access menus and the Recent Tab feature.

Add a single user or an entire group of users.

Find and practice rhythms from the simplest beginning level to the most advanced levels.

Tap single, double, or even triple (Drum Kit) rhythms.

Track scores, share and save results, add rhythm pattern images to a worksheet using the built-in worksheet creator.

Make annotations directly on the rhythm pattern using the Apple Pencil, a stylus, or your finger. The annotation drawing feature is also available in the Worksheet Creator.


Rhythm Lab covers all the bases. With version 4.0, you will be able to tap and create all kinds of interesting rhythms, including changing time signatures with multiple (up to three) numerators, nested tuplets, incomplete pickup measures, and more.

Rhythm Lab now provides a broader range of file options, including standard JSON data formats for easy file sharing (and even editing!) and MusicMXML import, making it possible to quickly add musical rhythms created in any modern musical notation software.


Rhythm Lab allows you to make your own rhythm patterns and worksheets. You can create individual rhythm patterns and add them to a pattern set that is usable on the Tap Screen, or save them as draft patterns to be edited or customized later.

You can import custom patterns as draft patterns or completed pattern sets. Import and export patterns in the rhythm lab format (rlpf) or JSON format (text editable). Documentation is coming soon for the JSON format.

Tap patterns directly on the iPad’s touch screen, or play them using a MIDI device for input.

Soundfonts! Rhythm Lab 4.0 now lets you use any General MIDI – compatible Soundfont (.sf2) as a sound source, as long as the soundfont provides a minimum set of sounds for both melodic and percussion sound banks.

Rhythm Lab 4.0 is coming, and will be available on the App Store very soon.
