Good app but..

Ok the app is cool but it’s been shutting down A LOT and I’ve lost several projects . Also during recording it lags often leaving unpleasant sounds . Like if a cd or record skips. Hopefully someone understands this comparison. Yes I’m cd old 😂. The other issue is it could use more sounds, like actual guitar sounds . I’ve found some that come close but none in that grunge - metal sounds I love. My last complaint: the community page is neat but you can’t comment on see who likes your stuff. Also seeing the instruments others used is cool but they can see your whole project and take it . So there’s that. Ok but it’s still fun, I love seeing others works for inspiration (not to steal) and anyone can make really cool sounds . So that is awesome!

What The #%*??

I have been a user of the OG Beatwave since it’s initial release way back in 2011. I purchased all the content available. I purchased a new iPad and when I reinstalled BW I can not restore anything? It seems to be trying to force me into repurchasing this new version that is exactly the same app. I was unable to install any of my purchases from within this version either. Seriously? I have been a part of the iOS music making community since it’s beginning and I have never hated on any developer. The OG app prompted me to contact support which I’ve been try to do with zero success as it looks as if they are purposely making it super difficult to get ahold of? I’m really frustrated. I spent money that I worked for on an app that I’m unable to use at my own expense so this new Beatwave team can create a subscription model for them to make money? So unethical and I feel like I’ve just been robbed. I’m taking this personally. The forums that I have been and am active on the daily in and since 2010 are gonna hear about all this. I’m super upset and it’s not about the money it’s the principle of it. Clearly you guys have non. How will you fix this for me personally? Your subscription is more for a week than the very first subscription I signed up for and is a full blown pro DAW. We all know what I’m talking about. Really a sad deal. You new owners of Beatwave should be ashamed of yourselves. Fix this crap man.

Extremely disappointed with how this app has downgraded

I had bought the extra features for this app when it was a free app and you didn’t have to pay some annoying membership fee or subscription. Also I’m not even able to edit songs anymore. Whenever I try to add another sound track to my song the app always crashes making it impossible to get anywhere and make the music that I was so proud of what I’ve been able to make with this app. The original version was better! Please revert back to it so you don’t get anymore extremely upset customers! It’s in your best interest!

You can’t suddenly make a free app $400 with one update! You can’t take away what people have paid for already just to make more money. If someone like myself has already purchased the extra features to get the full version of this app then they should be exempt of playing this stupid subscription fee!

Also the most recent update said it fixed the pesky bugs that we told you about... not true at all! It still crashes whenever you want to add another sound track!
