Love the app! I tried other apps for different instruments and have been disappointed. This one works amazingly well. One recommending if possible: Any chance of getting more effects in the future? For example, distortion would be great (I prefer the fuzz type of distortion myself. Maybe different types?). Thanks for the great work?
A couple of weeks ago I asked the developer to add the minimum number of notes and the midi control messages to make this software guitar friendly. Two weeks later, DONE! That makes iBassist the only AUTO ACCOMPANIMENT software available (Windows or Mac or iOS) that a professional guitar player can take on stage without having to do any pre-recording of backing tracks! I think that is huge and introduces limitless possibilities for professional solo guitar players. Kudos and a big THANK YOU to the developer.
Developer Response ,
We are working in a update and will be available soon. Please, write to email@example.com for the fix report
Fantastic Idea ..but...there seems to be a slight lag between the Bass Sound and the Drums that are linked.(I own 4 of your Drum Apps, and they all lag a little behind.) I didn’t notice this at first. Other than that, yes it does Crash some and Freaks Out when using AUM sometimes. Works great otherwise. But, once you notice the Lag you can’t forget that it’s there. Please Fix This and you will have yourself something really Groundbreaking.
