Sound issues, need help

This app worked beautifully at first, but after a few uses the sound I this app stopped working. I tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, but it still doesn't work. I have the audio on my iPad turned up all the way and all other apps an music work fine on my iPad, so I can't figure out what the problem is here. I try to play the koto strings in this app, and even the pre-programmed music, but there is no sound at all!! And I can't seem to find any support links on this company's website to get assistance here. I need this app so I can practice some koto songs in preparation for a recital soon. Can someone please help me??

Incredible Instrument

The original iKoto was good... iKoto HD on the iPad is sublime. I'm presently learning Koto tablature, and this new version has all the tricks that are commonly performed, with the resultant niceties of nuance, tone, and color.

A truly gorgeous app for anyone who has the slightest interest in this fascinating Instrument. Definitely one of my "Just what can that iPad do?" show-off apps !
