Worth 100 per month...SO POWERFUL and EASY TO USE!!!!!!!!

I’m a new head band director (taught middle school for a long time). I’m not a tech savvy person, but my friend talked me into doing sound effects and narration for the first time. My percussion director set up a computer with some fancy computer program and all the bells and whistles. We get out to our first show and the computer had to be restarted before it would connect and work for some reason. Huge timing penalty (not as bad as normal because it was our first show out) and super embarrassing. I thought there had to be something else...I was referred to this easy to use, and SO Powerful, literally I learned to use it in 10 minutes.

I think we had 90-95 sound effects. The app handled them all easily and I really liked the feature where I was able to organize the sounds by movement...and we even broke it down further into rehearsal sections. Also had a ton of compliments from the sound quality of our setup from Judges...and I did it all with this app connected to our little m-audio oxygen keyboard through our soundboard. My percussion instructor was skeptical at first, but is 110% sold now. Thank you!!

A Must For Marching Bands!

We used to use Mainstage exclusively. We still do, especially for synth patches or things that don’t really matter if our system fails like it does at least at a few shows a year. The more and more I keep working with Run Audio FX, the less I use other apps and setups...with a few iPads and iPhones, I’ll be able to replace everything with it eventually.

The midi control feature is ridiculously easy, and amazing...and I can’t wait for them to come out with the programmable’s going to help so much with rehearsals!

Thank you Run Audio FX for making an app that has saved me so much time and stress!

$100 pay wall

As much as I'd like to try your app, I cannot even see it in action without committing to a $130 annual subscription pay wall. There is a free trial period, but I object to pay first, then see if it works. I have enough things to keep track of instead of remembering to cancel forced, over priced trials. Remove the pay wall and you might start to accrue users.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback! We've updated the app and it's now possible to try it out without committing to the subscription first!
