The Best and Only of its Kind

This app is incredible.... if I had to pay for it I would. It works great, there are ample sounds to work with, and so much versatility that no matter what your composition needs are, rhythmically or otherwise, youll have a program that can get the job done. MASSIVE props to the creators of this masterpiece software.

Please fix!

I have been using this app for about a year and recently switched phones. I went to restore my purchases because I bought the in-app purchase where I can export through audio files and sheet music. When I went “home” all of my saved work was gone!!! I had so many cool walk on cadences and like drum licks to fill some dead time but there is no way to get all of my work back! This app is great but that one feature just kills and recently I had to delete the app AGAIN because the bass sounds weren’t coming out of my speakers at all only the metronome sound. I killed the app and restarted my phone but nothing changed. Please fix this!

that sucks. we hate to lose our work too. we store all files locally on the device. if you got a new device, you should be able to restore from a back up. we're looking at moving the files to the cloud. regarding the sounds, can you provide us more information?

Great App, but now it Keeps Crashing

I’ve been using this app for over a year now, and it’s been a great tool for me as an instructor to help my students understand what their parts are supposed to sound like before they play them. However, after saving what I believe was my 59th or 60th file, the app crashed and it will now crash every time I open the app and tap anywhere.

Is it possible for me to re-download the app and restore all of my saved files? I really love what you guys have done with the app and I would like to continue using it, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh my! Sounds like we may have found the memory limit of the app, which isn’t a good experience! We’ll do some testing to see if that’s the case and then get a fix out ASAP.
