Beathawk is truly a bargain

The instrument sounds in this app are great and I learned the interface from scratch in under 30min with no previous experience using loop oriented music recording software and wrote the sketch of a blues rock song in about an hour and sent it to musician friends. All in all the quality of sounds and the ease of use earn this app a 10 star review. The only reasons I didn’t give it a 5 star review are the relative lack of Blues/Rock oriented instrument packs and I’d like their file exporting to be a bit easier. That was the only place I had troubles with using the app (there are simple workarounds and all, but this app has such amazing capabilities that why not just shoot for the stars). The piano sound is actually good and holds its own to other standalone apps, the baroque instruments are the same (blew my mind), the Hammond is gorgeous, and the electric pianos, Mellotron (different league than Module’s, but not as good as UVI’s own for their computer Workstation), blues guitars, and drum kits and all very useable. I haven’t even plugged a keyboard into this to write yet, but I can tell you it just makes it all easier to play. Extremely good app for the money and hard drive space. Really, combined with GarageBand and Hokusai, it’s everything you need for all app pro quality music production. 20 yrs ago, this would have been unimaginable. 10 years ago, still impossible. Now, it’s actually cheap! Lol. What a time to be alive.

Overall it’s an amazing app

I love the heck out of this app but it would better if you all add more pad banks like an A B C D and also could you add a mixer with faders & pans. Also, accessing the instruments should be better as well as far as being able to play them with my midi keyboard as I demo through the instruments. Loading pads with drums the way you have it is great but as far as the instruments go, I’m not a fan of the loading instruments im same fashion as the pads for drums. If you all could add those features as updates, I know I wouldn’t use anything else. The sequencer is a killer and very easy to learn and it’s an absolute beast because I’m able to get ideas out very quick with beathawk !!! Overall, you guys did an amazing on with this app!

To the developers of BeatHawk. This is such an awesome app. The sample sounds are so impressive and the user face is amazing. I love the colors selected for this app. With all of this praise aside, I only give this app 2 stars for the simple reason of having to click on a sample TWO TIMES to open it. This may not bother anyone else but it frustrates the hell out of me and after about five minutes of this I switch over to Sample Tank by iMultimedia. On there and other apps I only need to press once before I can select the app and load it. I wanted BeatHawk to be my go to app but the double pressing really frustrates me to the point of wanting to throw my iPad Pro. PLEASE FIX THIS SO I CAN GIVE THIS THE FIVE STARS THAT IT DESERVES. I really would love a reply by developers here as to why you think pressing the sample twice to open it is right. I want to use BeatHawk so badly but the double touch is a killer for me so I’m using Sample Tank until you can fix all double touching. It would also be huge plus for rock lovers like me if you added more hard rock and heavy metal kits. A lot of these apps like yours always seem to cater more towards electronic, hip hop and pop. It’s not fair for us rock enthusiasts. It would be awesome if you could include some of those in your next update. Thanks. Waiting for your prompt reply. Please respond to me.
