Walk Band, an Android app, brings together the Drum, Guitar and the Piano into a single app. It is a blessing for all music lovers- both beginner and advanced level ones. With this combination of instruments, you can play entire songs on your mobile device, making it something of a ‘portable band’. The combination of instrument simulators provided by it is simply splendid and well thought over.

Besides providing the basic instrument features, it also provides extended features for all of these instruments. There are at least 5 types of Piano, including Synth, Organ, Music Box, Acoustic, Rhodes and Bright. Similar variants are available for the Guitar and Drums too. So, it provides you with about twenty instruments in all and over a hundred combinations of these. Also, there are additional features that you can download from the Google Play Store in the form of plugins.

Each of the instruments produces realistic natural instrument sounds. Not only are the instruments fabulous individually, you can also record multiple tracks at once. Add layers of musical devices to your songs to achieve a complete orchestra effect in the end. Hence, you have an entire band in your very own hands. Vocals are unfortunately not available at present.

For those who do not know any of the above instruments, Walk Band also supports a Learn to Play Mode. There are Music Sheets as well as Falling Notes for learners. AppGoVideo.com recommends learners to take lessons from here. Hence, the app is useful for beginners to get started on their tryst with music. The app also supports External MIDI Keyboard over a USB.

On the flip side, each instrument boasts of excellent top notch graphics and functionality. Although the multi-track recording isn’t the best in the market, it still does a pretty decent job and should suffice for most purposes.
