Ratings and Reviews
Please read this. I’m beggin ya
I have had this app for a while and got the pro version like 2 years ago. I never really use the drums, but I made a song today and used them for the first time. They were really good. I liked that I could lay down quarter note bass drum notes in the measure and on top of that do a snare without opening any menus or tapping anything, you just click the notes in the bottom row and and the top row and it works. You technically have 8 beats per measure (in 4/4) 4 on the bottom and 4 on the top. In the new version it looks like there are 4 beats no matter what. In order to have a bass line and a snare you need to do 2 layers which is more difficult and overall, less convenient. Is there a way that that can be adjusted like having a button in settings which returns the software to the previous version, I do not mind losing the extra sounds. I just want to have the convenience again. Also. Is it possible to please add an electric guitar? Thank you for reading
Best composing app for phones (update 7.9)
I discovered this app about 3 and half years ago and I honestly didn’t think this app was any good. Some of the instruments didn’t even match the sounds, some were too loud, you could only make a song do big before the playback lags so you have to make a new score to continue. I didn’t let it stop me though because this was really only app I could use to play around with and make my own music. Time progressed and this app got noticeably better, most of the issues with the instruments were fixed but everything else remained. I would say this app would be considered a 4 star but this new update fixed my biggest issue: articulation and dynamics. These 2 things were non existent before this update. After seeing that this update gave us the access to really get more musicality out of the scores, that’s enough to bump this all the way up to 5 stars. I’ve noticed the lag playback on big scores is a problem and the auto-scroll still doesn’t work but I’m able to work around these problems. If you’re looking for an app that give you access to make scores on the fly for relatively low price for the full experience, I wholeheartedly recommend this. Trust me, it’s the most user friendly.
One big problem...
So I’ve had this app for a little while and it’s amazing. The only issue is that recently when I’ve been using the keys, (like the key the song is in) it makes two instruments the same key which isn’t right. I know there is a switch for using concert pitch, but that’s not the issue. That’s one of the first things I make sure I change at the start of a new song. So, one of my current songs is in the key of B flat I believe and so B flat clarinet shouldn’t have any accidentals, but it’s showing up as the same as the C flute who has 2. I have 2 B flat trumpets and those show up perfectly fine. It’s just one or two instruments and it’s very frustrating. With this issue fixed, I’d give it 4 stars.
One suggestion I have is adding in trills, falls, and maybe changing the way to put in staccatos, marcatos, tenuos, and stuff like that. I’ve been avoiding them in my songs because I’d prefer not to click on each and every note. Because with every note, I end up clicking 4 or 5 different things. That adds up pretty quick, especially with a song with like 50 or more. So maybe have a separate tab or button where the notes and note lengths are so they are more accessible. With these taken into account, I’d give it 5 stars.
