I would give 0 stars if I could!?!

I hate stupid developers that only push out crappy apps like this to make more money off a few idiots who aren’t smart enough to just spend that money on a better DAW that gives you WAY more control over ANYTHING IMAGINABLE!!!

These money hungry jerks just crap out yet another SNEAKY FAKE “FREE” APP. That does nothing for your unless you pay. (WHICH ISNT FREE!!!)
A preview would be free or maybe a free trial.. it’s ridiculous...
I hope the rest of you reading this invest another minute or two in finding an app that actually does what this one leads you to believe it’s suppose to do... guaranteed you’ll find 2o or more that make this look like a joke or like a scam taking advantage of impulse buyers, or accidental / unauthorized purchases from a child or whatever... Great job IK

Does what it’s suppose to do

Riff maestro is an all but perfect song slower downer app. It could work better with other apps (which is why 4 and not 5 stars ) , but to be honest since I stopped trying to get better results between apps and just concentrated on learning music via riff maestro alone (I haven’t tried to pair maestro w other apps )... And it’s been awhile .. so , as far as I know ., that/ those issues could’ve been addressed and fixed... at any rate if your looking for more than A song slower downer App then keep on looking. This app does just that slows down music to within single percentages and allows you to master and slowly increase your speed till you’re playing right along with the song masterfully. It effortlessly loads your music one song at a time(being able to load multiple songs and or playlist would be nice, but it’s nothing to load from one song to another ,it takes virtually seconds) into the app and then all you do is hit play and adjust your speed‘s. Oh also you can loop sections and have the chords being played scroll by too. Though I don’t know how accurate the chord scroll is ,it never seems to match up with what I come up with but I’m no professional.

No support

In earlier iOS versions, the app worked fine. However, the app no longer adds songs. It just has a blank white screen where the songs to add would be. The developer is aware of the issue,but still hasn’t patched it yet and there have been 2 iOS updates since I complained. Since the developer deals almost exclusively with the iOS and Mac OS systems, it tells me that they have abandoned this app in favor of more iRig garbage.
