Ratings and Reviews
Sub par, but gets by
I was really stoked to get the AX Edge, but frustration quickly arose when trying to edit patches.
There needs to be a desktop app for synth editing. The mobile editor has too many bugs.
Parameters don’t always read properly, and change when I switch through the pages.
For example, when I edit a patch, the parts in the “switch” tab will randomly change from off to on, as if it doesn’t read properly the first time.
The PCM list doesn’t show the right sound source half the time. For example, I will set it to the first patch in INT A which is a saw, but coming back to it, it will show its set to a piano.
MFX don’t always register properly.
I have to switch them on then off for it to recognize I want the FX off.
Pitch modulation and routing is very unstable. I will change the course/fine pitch or keytrack pitch and it will randomly offset the parameter +/-1 when I switch tabs. Same for the amplitude envelopes. I have to change it multiple times for it to stay in place.
Overall the app interface is very unintuitive and would be much easier if it was matrix based, where all the modulation and routings are on a single grid.
Can’t stay connected, no rotation, no USB
This is a disappointment.
The app looks like some engineers spent a lot of time thinking through ways to give AX-Edge users some visual ways to edit patches, but I’m unable to get it to sync over Bluetooth. It just keeps losing connection. Quit app, power cycle AX-Edge, run app, same deal. Useless!
So I thought maybe we can use a USB cable, which would be more reliable - Nope. The editor app doesn’t support USB connection to an iPad, it’s unreliable Bluetooth only.
Even if it did support a USB cable, the app only supports vertical (portrait) orientation and doesn’t rotate between opposite portrait positions, so you can’t rest your iPad vertically because the connector with your cable would be on the bottom side of the forced position in the app. There should definitely be a landscape orientation. These use cases should’ve been thought through.
Lastly, it’s iPhone resolution only - no iPad Retina resolution. So everything has to be blown up to giant size, which is a missed opportunity to really make the editing experience fantastic on an iPad.
I guess I can’t edit my sounds and setups using this app after all because it literally won’t work, even as intended, over Bluetooth.
Come on, Roland! Assign some hours to fixing this thing. It’s such a promising tool.
Need update please
App has to many bugs
