About This Game

Drumming Reimagined For Virtual Reality

Explore and expand your percussion skills with the power of virtual reality! Paradiddle is a realistic, responsive drum kit built for VR that lets you hone your drumming skills without driving the neighbours crazy.

Learn, play and share!

Play through the ten beginner lessons to learn the ropes, then flex your drumming skills using the built-in rhythm game mode. Each song in rhythm game mode has multiple difficulty settings, providing a challenge for newcomers and pros alike. With the new multiplayer features you can even perform for your friends in freeplay, or compete to get the high score playing the built-in songs!

All The Noise, None of the Racket!

Drag and drop drums from your palette and create a custom setup that works for you. Save custom sets and load up your favourites whenever you want, choosing from a library of 50+ percussion instruments - glockenspiel, xylophone, and more! The instruments in Paradiddle let out realistic sounds depending on where and how hard you hit them, making it the perfect tool for learning or honing your skills.

Full Feature List

  • Learn to drum in the comfort of your own home - all the fun, with none of the racket!
  • Create and customise your own custom drum kit from a library of 50+ percussive instruments, from mallet instruments like the xylophone and glockenspiel, to auxiliary percussion such as bongos, tambourines and timpanis.
  • Flex your skills in rhythm game mode: adjustable difficulty for 30 different songs, plus custom song support and cross-platform leaderboards!
  • Pick up the basics with 10 beginner-friendly lessons, perfect for drumming newcomers!
  • Load your own songs, audio files and sheet music. You can even record and share your songs with the Paradiddle community!
  • Use the new multiplayer feature to perform for your friends in freeplay, or compete to get the high score playing the built-in songs!
  • 4 different environments to play in: Dojo, Jazz Club, Galaxy, Void.
  • MIDI input/output support. MIDI devices (such as electronic drum pedals) can be integrated into Paradiddle to trigger any drums within the environment. Likewise, Paradiddle can also send MIDI output, which means you can use the app to trigger your own samples in your favorite digital audio workstation. This transforms Paradiddle into an extremely powerful audio creation tool.
  • Peripheral support for kick and hi-hat. Any USB peripheral that can emulate keyboard input (such as USB pedals) can be used in Paradiddle as a way to trigger the kick drum or control the hi-hat.
  • ASIO Support. Audio enthusiasts that want maximum customization of their audio settings can switch their output device to ASIO. By default, the app uses WASAPI, and a lot of time was spent to ensure that the latency was kept to a minimum with the default settings.
  • Customise settings like pitch and max volume for each individual drum. These settings will expand in the future to give users greater control over the sound that comes out of their drums.
