Great standalone and controller
Great app, easy to use as a standalone tune maker. Nice range of internal sounds which combine to produce some very cool tunes. Fluid, intuitive controls that will suit beginners or more advanced users. Use the MIDI IAP to control other synths and you have a powerful app indeed. It looks fantastic on an iPad already but an update is on it's way which will enhance this.
fun little sequencer
good for doodling melodies and ideas and to their credit they have midi out if you want to capture it for a different app to work on further. Give it a go!
Clever left field approach
Interesting graphic interface approach to step sequencing, u can get lost in this for hours and have a lot of fun.
