Love the app! I tried other apps for different instruments and have been disappointed. This one works amazingly well. One recommending if possible: Any chance of getting more effects in the future? For example, distortion would be great (I prefer the fuzz type of distortion myself. Maybe different types?). Thanks for the great work?
A great bassist but takes a coffee break every 5 mins or so!
A could-be unparalleled bass app. But for me it hasn’t been useful. I use it in the Real Time mode. In that mode, the finicky player almost predictably quits playing every 5 mins or so. This makes this somewhat expensive iOS app useless for my purposes. Hopefully this problem will be solved one of these days. I’m still giving it a 5 because I asked the programmer to add a feature and he did. Also, I still have hopes for this app.
Developer Response ,
We are working in a update and will be available soon. Please, write to firstname.lastname@example.org for the fix report
Fantastic Idea ..but...there seems to be a slight lag between the Bass Sound and the Drums that are linked.(I own 4 of your Drum Apps, and they all lag a little behind.) I didn’t notice this at first. Other than that, yes it does Crash some and Freaks Out when using AUM sometimes. Works great otherwise. But, once you notice the Lag you can’t forget that it’s there. Please Fix This and you will have yourself something really Groundbreaking.
