Virtual Drums

Available under the ‘Music & Video’ section of Windows 8 app store, Virtual Drums lets you practice your drum skills using the mouse pointer which is quite annoying. However, if you have multi-touch screen, then I would say it actually comes alive. All you need to do it just launch the app and start playing drums. You will find just a regular drum set and nothing else: no other options, no settings, no guidance, nothing. Just a set of virtual drums. Well.. it, somehow, did not attract me towards installing it. However, what I really liked is the labeling. Yup… each instrument in the drum set has been properly labeled with their respective names. Let me quickly point out the main features of Virtual Drums app below.
