I really wanted to like this app, but...

It is VERY hard for me to leave bad app ratings. So instead of leaving three stars and saying something nasty, I wanted to at least let other users know why I didn’t leave a perfect 5 star rating.

First let me say the things that I really like!
I love the setup, and the minimalist and clean design.

However, the algorithm that tries to loop the note, sounds awful. When the note is struck the attack sounds great, but a millisecond after the key is struck it falls apart! The moment the note starts the decay starts to pop, and the sustain shifts volume and wobbles because it’s trying to loop the sample and it’s unusable.
Why not record the notes with the whole ADSR the attack is fine, so just let the note fade naturally and don’t start the loop at the decay, actually not allow it to loop at all.

I uninstalled... ☹️

Glitchy sounds

Although the sounds were ok to start off with, if you HOLD some notes long enough on all instruments (that are provided free) including the default piano, you will hear glitching, clicking and some strange after (ghost) sounds. If this is any indication of what you would get from a purchased (at $10 a pop) sampled sound, then I can’t recommend it until at least all the free samples are cleaned up. And hopefully there are not any problems with the purchased samples.

Also, the program crashes when sometimes selecting a different sample from the file menu.

FYI, I am using an iPad Pro for primarily for music. I have no problems like this from other programs that use samples.
