Ratings and Reviews
More fun than a tub of gasoline!
What’s else is there to say about it!? Just look at at the reviews. Most people not only give it 4 or 5 stars, but they take their time to rant and rave...And then there are the haters. There’s always going to be a few,right? However, look at what the haters have to say: NOTHING! Barely complete sentences. they either fail to elaborate anything intelligent to make their case or a temporary glitch caused them to be unable to continue using the app that they would of given 5 stars to 364 days out of the year so they give it one star to get the companies attention to fix their problem immediately instead of just going straight to support. Oh yeah, I almost forgot: then there are those who think ten bucks a month is too much to pay for a music app that they’ll probably be using 25 days out of 30. So if you are the kind of person who would complain on a hot air ballon ride or the kind of people who shop for clothes where they buy their car batteries and groceries; then avoid this application... or as I like to call it-instrument
Very Organic and Natural
This is one of my favorite music creation apps to play with. I don’t have a trained musical background and I’m always impressed how natural this program feels to me. I like to play with DJ equipment and have for years. I did DJ a little bit when I was younger and I experiment a lot. I’m not a professional DJ, but I’ve definitely been playing around with music my whole life. I have made a few songs with this app and I’m always surprised and impressed with what I’m able to create. I also love that you can record things that you make and share them easily. Even just the free app is worth playing with. Anyway, this app really is an amazing invention and creation.
Bringing organic music to the iPad
Tons of fun "maps" set up with highly customized sound packs...played in time with the stroke of a finger (or more).
Like Lemurs customizable MIDI maps for us lazy folk...and there is even an Ableton MIDI contest.
This is the first app that has felt like I am making organic music with. The sounds are amazing and highly expressive. It maximizes space and pushes the limits of what you can do with a screen.
The only things I would love to see expanded is the looper feature (I would happily pay as an in app purchase if it were tweaked a tad), and IAA and AUv3 support (which I hear may be coming soon alongside some out of this world features like map editing!!)
If I don't want to put a project and template together in Ableton with Lemur, this has ALL the fun and versatility of the end product.
Thanks all. I REALLY love this app. As an experienced musician, I have hours of fun... And think that anyone could.
You truly created a new kind of instrument here like nothing I have seen!
