Very pleased to see this is still being loved...
....looking forward to updates to the other volumes (I own them all :).
Great app, but it crashes too much
I think this app has the potential to be an amazing tool for making music. The only problem is, it crashes too much. Specifically when I change or add something to the song. So far I’ve been experiencing 3 or 4 crashes in the span of a few minutes every time I start the app. It’s really hard to be productive with these issues. I don’t want to say I regret buying it because I actually really like what it has to offer, but I’m kinda on the fence with this one. That’s $3.99 potentially wasted. I hope there’s a fix for it soon, I’d really like to make music with this app...
What you need to know before you buy this app
If I could I would give this 3.5 stars. The interface is gorgeous, but uncluttered. Intuitive controls let you jump in right away and the interactive help is second to none. Samples are flawless and easy to manipulate. The creation of professional sounding tracks can be accomplished in a matter of minutes.
Despite all the above, the app is still lacking. First, the audiobus interface HAS to be fixed before I would recommend this to anyone. The app is too limited without it, which leads me to my second point. While there are thousands of samples that drive this composer, each EDM style (there are 16) only has one bass line, one synth pad, and one lead. Only the drums afford multiple patterns. For instance, when you compose a song you select a style. Within the style you select loops with almost any conceivable chord. The lead synth for that chord will play the exact same pattern regardless of which chord you select. This makes for a monotonous song and essentially makes this app a background track generator, not a full-blown song creator.
In short, if the audiobus errors are fixed, and you're looking for a background track for basic tracks, then this is a great choice.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
