Potential but not there yet

Update: midi is a thing now, so you can use a controller... to play notes... no midi learn that I can find for knobs. Step in the right direction though and it shows that they listen to feedback.

Shows enough promise for me to have committed to buying the app.

One thing that I find really weird though is that you can’t save patches on your iPad. That just doesn’t make any sense to me. The engine is sweet though and without the demo resetting your settings you can do some really cool stuff.


Demo is really limited by the annoying pop ups that come at you at any page change making it impossible to actually play around with it and demo it. Would be less annoying if it came up every 30 seconds :l

No midi in is the real killer though and sequencing is limited to one pattern. So you’ll have to either make a project for every pattern or you have to play on a touch screen, which honestly isn’t a great experience.

Sound engine looks interesting but without easy manipulation (midi could fix this) it just doesn’t click. Flipping between pages non stop isn’t a great workflow sadly.

Hi! Have you tried the new version where we added midi in? Kind regards, Hanna

What reason?

How can you call this reason? All that can be done is creation of a singular 2 measure loop fragment.
No multiple tracks with combined instruments. This software is by far nothing close to a real full blown musical creation app.
And it’s not impossible to make that. Look at Cubasis and Garageband. Propellerheads is so fixed on making money that this all you can come up with. You don’t give te power to the composer at all.

Very badly managed, poor designed, unfinished product

Very badly managed, poor designed, unfinished product. Nothing is works in there, what is the point to bring out app which nobody can really use? Moreover, since I’ve downloaded it Propellerheads spamming me DAILY!!! I’ve received many email from it where they trying hard to promote it and asking me what I think of it, also showing some strange people (they’ve called ‘professionals’ making ‘award winning’ stuff on it)... Seriously? On what level of disgrace are you dear Propellerheads? Or let me put it this way, when did you hired all those low educated wannabes and why? Update. 25.12.2018. Ive just received a feedback from so called developer where they called me rude... 🤣🤣🤣🤣 The level of disgrace is much lower than I expected! Keep up!
