Ratings and Reviews
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?
iBassist is now exactly what I was hoping for. The issues I previously experienced have been fixed, and now AUV3 support! I’m hoping that the rest of the drummer suit gets the same treatment. The MIDI features in iBassist make it extremely easy to work out riffs with other synth apps, making AUM jamming a lot more fun. The only issues I experienced so far is that sometimes iBassist sounds lag a bit after tweaking settings, but thats easily fixed after stopping and restarting. Otherwise, well worth the purchase!

Updated with Auv3 👍
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.
