iOS 13 please fix

I switched from stage light to Zenbeats the moment I found out about the merger and new app was released.... I loved everything about it.... wanted it to be my DAW for my iPhone am Ipad.... PERIOD.... then last night I updated my software to iOS 13 and now the bugs have begun... piano mode is glitching badddd, audio files that have been imported will lose sound randomly while playing, the drum sequencer will intermittently not let you click in notes towards the end of the pattern...longer load time for app to start up, etc... I know it’s new and so is the update and I have a lot of faith in the good peeps over at Roland.... please get this fixed ASAP so I can continue producing and tel the world about how amazing this app is! Thank you in advance!!!!

Thank you so much for your feedback! We are in the process of logging and eliminating issues with iOS 13. Check often for Zenbeats updates and, rest assured, all of these issues will be addressed as quickly as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Looks Familiar (Stagelight)

Ok, updated review...
Roland and the folks from Stagelight did provide a cross-grade, it is a reworked version of the later app, and it works pretty well. I hope Roland sticks with this app, as it could turn out to be a real hit. The app still needs some help, but I trust Roland has the resources to throw at it. I do hope Roland either hired or retained the original programming team, as they will have the best feel for where to take the app.

All that said, give us more sample and loop packs that are not just EDM & hip hop, etc. And please, continue to buff up the central app.

Thank you so much for your positive comment! We are constantly working to update and refine Zenbeats. Stay tuned for further information.

You guys are on fire! This came outta nowhere. I like the tie-in with the whole “Zen” thing on your currently announced batch of pro synths. How far you gonna take Zenbeats? Can you make it deep for professionals? I am rooting Roland on!

Important question: does this sequence external gear? Hope it does. Having Midi learn is one thing...sending midi note/cc data out is another

Only sucky thing: I couldn’t just apply/merge my Rolandcloud account with the Backstage (or whatever) account...unless I am missing something.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much! We are glad that you are enjoying Zenbeats. The Mac and PC versions of Zenbeats provide MIDI out to sequence external gear. Stay tuned for further updates and maximized integration for other Roland accounts.
