Sound store not working/loading up

Come on guys you gotta do better than this. Everyone is asking what happened to the sound store and we haven’t been informed on what’s going on. A simple (we’re working on restoring it or it doesn’t exist anymore) would be helpful. Please let us know what’s happening cause I wanted to purchase some sound packs. Almost at a point where I wanna delete this app and say forget everything I did but I’m still holding on for some clarity on the sound store. I would give it 5 stars but taking away the option to buy sound kits without any explanation is unacceptable. Help us out!

Best DAW ever!

I’ve been using BM2 since 2011 (started on the iPhone 4) and til this day I make the majority of my beats in this app. I went from Fantom S keyboard to Reason 5 to BeatMaker 2. I rarely use Reason today except to add on to beats I’ve already made on my phone. I mostly sample in BM2 for melodies (it’s sooo easy to chop and manipulate samples on the fly compared to Reason’s “Recycle” companion) I very rarely use the stock instruments in BM2 other than to reference melodies but with FX like “Filter” and “Equalizer” I’ve gotten some pretty cheesy stock sounds to sound pretty dope within a mix. If I need to, I’ll just export the MIDI and import the beat’s MIDI into the Reason 5 DAW to swap sounds from my vast collection of “Refills” (Reason’s version of VST’s/plugins.) I sequence/mix in Pro Tools for ease, but this can very well be done right inside the BM2 app or even other compatible iOS DAW’s (like Multitrack DAW, which is my fav for referencing vocals and rough draft ideas) I almost don’t need a computer or laptop! This app has never let me down! Well once, a file wouldn’t open and it still won’t til this day but this was in 2011, it hasn’t happened since. Best $20 I ever invested and I think it’s only like $10 now. Can’t beat it.

Killing Those Lame MPC's LOL

Back in business. The MPC is like what a tape player is to an iPod now lol. Beatmaker 2 is the 💩. 65GB's of sounds on my iPhone now on my 128GB. Hands down the best DAW. Just needs a way to hook up to a external hard drive or make a desktop version. Those that are complaining about factory sounds are idiots. Import your own sounds with FileZilla and the world awaits on your creativity. I'm laughing at those idiots that can't use simple software or watch tutorials to learn. You get what you put in and that goes for life.

Totally dissatisfied with the wait of the BeatMaker 3 release date for the iPhone version. I now have a 256gb IPhone 8 Plus and feel so behind because I won’t buy a iPad just for one particular app. INTUA should not give dates to customers and not stand by it. I’m not going to lower the 5 star rating on bm2 because of this but not everyone wants to use a iPad to make music with as portability and the developers should’ve put more time into the iPhone version being that the iPad version has been out for so long. Truly disappointed.
