Lost lots of work

The app is easy to use, but mind that it’ll crash and leave you with however much work you neglected to save totally gone.

It’s eh

After using this app for about two years, I’ve come to bypass most inconsistencies in this app just by pure habits like spamming save every 5 minutes but along with that, I’ve gained enough patience with this app to work on songs that I’d listen to and I’ve been able to make good covers with it as well but this app could still use a lot of work with presentation and maybe even adding more samples (?) lots of stuff I’d like to try and replicate is ruined due to the lack of style from instruments but that’s usually very specific. Still works and once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty ok. Personally wouldn’t say it’s worth buying the Full Version due to the lack of updates so far but you can take a video of songs you make and delete them. Also a trick I learned is that you can temporarily have a 6th song by just adding it but after a while, you won’t be able to save or work on anything so that’s just like a temporary test to see if you’d like to commit to a new song. Good luck! -J

I made a whole arrangment (luckily it was saved or I would be very angry) and it keeps crashing. I can’t go any further into finishing the piece. PLEASE FIX
