Yet another botch from Retronyms.


I thought I was losing my mind; could AC 2.0 actually get worse than it was?

Unfortunately for the devs (but fortunately for me) it's true - not only does it not do what I need it to, now it just straight up crashes. Have come to the point where I won't even bother if this app has to be invoked... Just pipe it out in Audiobus and move on.

Looking at this company's track record - like the iMPC Fly debacle ("MIDI? Who wants that anyway?"), or their Wej Kickstarter campaign for hardware nobody wants (so they just extend the deadline until enough rubes sign on? What?!) makes me wonder where the heck these guys get their funding from. A fancy loft workspace in San Francisco ain't cheap, but I have yet to see anything these guys put out that's not hamstrung in some way.

How do they do it?

Doesn't matter. I don't care anymore. Retronyms' name on a product is enough to make me turn 180* and run away as fast as possible. I just wish they'd stop sullying iOS music production at this point and go into another line of work entirely.


I would love to be able to copy files with metadata into my projects: however either the apps don't support 2.0 implementation (Audioshare > Nanostudio, for instance) or if they say they do, the files rarely show up in the destination app.

Won't keep it much longer at this rate if I can just sample directly via Audiobus to Loopy.

Could be much better

First of all, there is a current issue with the app crashing when I click on the Browse tab... that is what brought me here today to leave this review as it NEEDS to be fixed. It crashes on both my iPad and iPhone running the latest iOS 12.4.1 release, so I both cannot search for sample packs nor even download previous purchases I have already made. And I doubt the upcoming iOS 13 update will FIX anything, haha.

Even if that is fixed the app gets two stars from me, and only because the sample packs have relatively good quality sounds. The usefulness of the actual app is drastically hindered by not having Files integration, as compared to AudioShare which is my go-to app for housing my sample collections as well as for simple audio utilities. There’s no reason to keep two or more copies of each sample on my device with limited storage. The app works as a sample store where you can purchase sample packs—OK—maybe I’m expecting too much to think that I would be able to manage my audio files there as well.

Developer Response ,

Hi! The Browsing crash has been fixed. Glad to hear you are enjoying the sample packs-- we work hard to select the best packs for the store!
We are aware that file transferring could be made more useful, so we are looking forward to improving this feature in future updates.

Only As Needed

AudioCopy doesn't get a higher rating from me as I prefer the functionality of Audioshare and use AudioCopy only as needed.

The AudioCopy content store is fairly small and the app has scrolling ads on the bottom which are quite small on both the iPad and iPhone but might explain the battery drain some people have complained about as the scrolling text is updated via the web. To be fair, I don't think you could make them any smaller unless you removed them completely. You can upload to SoundCloud and it has open in so you can transfer sounds between apps. It might be undesirable to have several copies of audio files in different apps but you could certainly pick a primary one and transfer files to other apps depending upon what their audio file import/export support features are like.

This is another example of Retronyms not supporting Audiobus users as it doesn't have any Audiobus functionality even though it'd make sense to use it in the input and output slots.
