Love it!!

This so easy to use!! I’m terrible at music and wanted to try to make a cute beat for my game. This app is incredibly underrated

Great little app for creating and editing musical ideas without having to have performance skills

Great idea here. I like the way you can easily input melodies with some complex syncopated rhythms. I would love a MIDI export so I could use ideas in other DAW software. Love the feature where you can use inversions and retrogrades - I don’t know of any other apps or software that do this including GarageBand, Soundtrap, BandLab and Mixcraft. It would be cool to be able to choose different types of scales to create a melody but I love the way you can change key. I’m a music teacher and it would be great to have these features along with some sort of ability for institutions to purchase a site licence. It’s a very effective way of getting students with little musical experience to create ideas to get them started (but would only be effective with a MIDI export feature).

Best creative music app yet.

By far the most enjoyable music app yet. Some of the other synths on the iPhone are impressive through features and complexity, but this is so simple, well put together and astonishingly enjoyable to use that it beats them all. And it's free too! I would pay for it if they could give you a few different tones to use, and maybe even a second matrix for a filter, switchable between bandpass and lowpass...that would make it Awesome! Install it now!
