Some sounds excellent

Duduk, and all the Trumpets are the best available sounds compared to any iOS app. However the Dizi and a few others could be better, they still sound unrealistic, if they put the same effort for all the sounds as they did for duduk and the trumpets it would be the best app ever

Developer Response ,

Thank you! We will be working on improving the dizi and some of the other sounds. Thank you for the feedback!

Would have loved to give 5 Stars

Let me explain. This is a wonderful instrument, there is nothing quite like it on IOS. Beautiful fresh sounds. However app will not open in AUM, Audiobus, Nanostudio, AuriaPro... as you can see the list is every DAW I possess. Which is a big shame because this means unless I use screen record I cannot capture any of my performances and to make matters even worse if I play live I have to jump in and out of your app and then back to the home screen.
If it can in a future update it will run on any DAW in IOS as an inapp instrument it will get 5 Stars and I will by more instruments.

Developer Response ,

Our app is now AUv3 compatible! You can use it as a plugin in your favorite AUv3 compatible DAW!

5 stars for the sound 0 for the midi implementation

The sounds are great, unfortunately the midi lean does not fully work. I got this app to use with my ewi usb, and after a lot of fiddling about managed to set the volume up to respond to my breath. The harder I blow the more the volume knob moves round to the right to increase, and the softer I blow the more to the left or softer the knob moves. UNFORTUNATELY Whereas my breath can control the volume knob it does not control the volume. I can blow as soft or hard as I like and the volume remains the same.
This for me renders the app UNUSABLE. 20 POUNDS WASTED.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for the feedback, the fix will be released soon in v5!
