Awesome bu needs to be fixed for iPad Pro

I’ve used this app for many many years and have recommended it to many others. Totally worth every cent plus the extra IAP for the extra sounds. But... since upgrading to an iPad Pro 2018 I’ve noticed the sound has issues crackling and it’s really messed up my workflow using with other apps. Can you please fix this app so I can add more to this review on how great it WAS before this issue?

Simply Brilliant

I've been a professional musician for over fifty years and this is just the best music tool ever at the price. The sounds are good and it is so easy to use and understand. That's right! I'm an old bloke (over 70) and even I can use it to create some great music - no problems! I've just completed orchestrations for over 500 Australian traditional songs as well as thousands of country and rock standards and I've never found anything lacking. I've had this app since it first came out (I've always used it on an iPad since I got my first one) and it has just kept surprising me again and again with its flexibility. Keep at it, Alexander! Can't think of anything you can do to improve it right at the moment but I'm sure you'll think of something and, when you do, I know it'll be good.

I’ve been using this app since 2012 and it never ceases to amaze me. It has such a professional work space and easy to use. I’ve recommended it to all my friends and so far no complaints. I’ve used it to make my own music and to add band elements to other songs. I’ve learned so much from just playing around with it, and I use it every single day. Just want to say thank you to the makers. Truly an amazing app.
