About This Game

Drumming Reimagined For Virtual Reality


Paradiddle lets you explore your percussion skills freely in a flexible and responsive VR environment. Drag and drop as many drums as you want from your palette. Arrange and scale them with ease to create the setup that works best for you. Save custom drum sets and load your favorites whenever you come back.

Virtual Drums, Realistic Sound


In Paradiddle, drums give off different sounds based on a variety of factors, with some drums supporting over 100 sounds just based on how hard they were hit. Certain percussion instruments, such as the ride cymbals, also play different audio samples depending on what part of the instrument was hit.

A Platform for Sharing and Learning

Record your songs and share them with others in the Paradiddle community. In a song playback, Paradiddle uses visual cues to show when each drum is about to get hit. Speed up, slow down and play along to a recording in a uniquely immersive learning environment—or just sit back and the watch the show.

Full Feature List

  • Play 50+ realistic percussion instruments freely without worrying about making noise, having a dedicated space for them, or buying them.
    Includes 5 full drum kits, mallet instruments like the xylophone, marimba and glockenspiel, and auxiliary percussion such as bongos, tambourines and timpanis.
  • Rhythm game mode with custom song support and cross-platform leaderboards.
  • 10 beginner-friendly lessons that take you through drumming basics.
  • 4 different environments to play in: Dojo, Jazz Club, Galaxy, Void.
  • Realistic and responsive sound system, powered by FMOD.
  • Create and customize your own drum kit.
  • Record and share the songs you’ve played with others in the Paradiddle community.
  • 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.
  • Customizable drum sound options. You can customize settings of individual drums, such as their pitch and max volume. These settings will expand in the future to give users greater control over the sound that comes out of their drums.
  • Ability to load and play back audio files from your system as you play on your drums.
  • Import sheet music.
