I love koto

This is a really cool app to have. If you like koto music or are interested in getting the feel for the instrument this is the app to have. The only complaint i have is that the sound quality isnt as good as the iphone version of ikoto..

Sound issues, need help

This app worked beautifully at first, but after a few uses the sound I this app stopped working. I tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, but it still doesn't work. I have the audio on my iPad turned up all the way and all other apps an music work fine on my iPad, so I can't figure out what the problem is here. I try to play the koto strings in this app, and even the pre-programmed music, but there is no sound at all!! And I can't seem to find any support links on this company's website to get assistance here. I need this app so I can practice some koto songs in preparation for a recital soon. Can someone please help me??
