Ratings and Reviews
Amazing in so many ways!
This app may appear simple but really offers a lot of scope for creating. The sound is amazing and it has a broad range of expression, from soft beautiful sounds to sharp percussive tones.
It also has a huge range of note arrangements which really covers everything you could ever think of, and they are fun to experiment with. The midi capability is really the extra icing on the cake to make this app a delight and a necessity.
A lot of potential
I wish I could give this app 5 stars, however due to the absence of a few key features, that should have been present, given the price the developer is charging, I'm forced to go with 3 stars. The application has a lot of potential. I really like the idea, and it kind of works, despite my zero understanding and experience with creating music. It would be great if the application supports recording. Furthermore it can incorporate something like sequencing and arranging to make this application more than a pass time. The moment I open the application, I feel like I can create something meaningful, however, since it has no real features, I always end up closing it after a few minutes.. For people thinking of buying this, I recommend that you wait until the developer puts in some of the above mentioned features. Without them I don't really think that there is any point in buying this app. Hope the developer further enhances this wonderful idea.
Great fun and a joy to use.. Everyone must try.
