You might not realize it, but mobile phones can make for great musical accompaniments for any tracks you might be producing. I'm not talking about sampling ringtones here, but rather using your device as a digital drum machine.

Little Snazzy Drummer is designed to let you do just that, allowing you to build drum loops and play them through your device. Once you've installed the cab file you can start playing around with beats by clicking on the 'Edit' option. Here you'll find five different drum tracks which, when put together, will form your loop or be used as a metronome to keep you in time.

The drum tracks comprise of Bass, Snare, Closed hat, Open hat, and Rim shot. Each track in the sequence has its own timeline where you can set the intervals at which each will sound, simply by checking or unchecking the boxes that run across the track. The track plays while you're editing, allowing you to easily preview the changes live and tinker with each track to keep the beat. Unfortunately, you can't isolate individual tracks though.

Once you've finished your beat, you simply return to the 'Play' menu and it will loop continuously, accompanied by a picture of a little snazzy drummer (who looks more like a big grotesque monster, if you ask me). It would've been nice if this little guy was animated but I guess you can't have everything.

It may not be the most advanced music production tool in the World, bu Little Snazzy Drummer is a very cool app that will help you create drum beats without any technical knowledge.
