Ratings and Reviews
Amazing app. I love it! However, I have a couple things that I think could make it a little better than it already is. (*=important)
First of all, I have a few glitches here and there. Nothing that ruins anything while I’m composing, except for one where I have a 32nd note followed by a quarter note (I’m remaking the 21st Century Fox theme). During playback, the 32nd note plays fine, and then the quarter note plays like a 32nd note and just stops. You hear a quick beep where there should be a longer quarter note. It works fine with 16th notes, it just sounds better with 32nd notes.
*Also, I was wondering if you could go back to the old sounds for trumpet, violin, trombone, and tuba. The new ones I’m not liking a ton because they mess up the sounds of some of the songs I’ve made.*
*I was also wondering if you could add trills and falls (by fall I mean that thing where trumpets start on one notes and fall to another slowly). That sort of thing.*
*One more thing. The slurs, accents, and dynamics don’t actually do anything during playback. You can see them, but you never hear any instruments get quieter or louder, or accent, or slur.*
Besides all those points I LOVE this app!! Keep it up!!
One big problem...
So I’ve had this app for a little while and it’s amazing. The only issue is that recently when I’ve been using the keys, (like the key the song is in) it makes two instruments the same key which isn’t right. I know there is a switch for using concert pitch, but that’s not the issue. That’s one of the first things I make sure I change at the start of a new song. So, one of my current songs is in the key of B flat I believe and so B flat clarinet shouldn’t have any accidentals, but it’s showing up as the same as the C flute who has 2. I have 2 B flat trumpets and those show up perfectly fine. It’s just one or two instruments and it’s very frustrating. With this issue fixed, I’d give it 4 stars.
One suggestion I have is adding in trills, falls, and maybe changing the way to put in staccatos, marcatos, tenuos, and stuff like that. I’ve been avoiding them in my songs because I’d prefer not to click on each and every note. Because with every note, I end up clicking 4 or 5 different things. That adds up pretty quick, especially with a song with like 50 or more. So maybe have a separate tab or button where the notes and note lengths are so they are more accessible. With these taken into account, I’d give it 5 stars.
Just One Tiny Problem
There are a lot of great things about the app, I’ll admit. I use this app constantly. However, in the past there were problems with how some instruments sounded, and for the most part it’s fine. However, I find that the clarinets are really quiet, which is a shame because they finally sound like clarinets. Some instruments have problems with sustaining notes for a long period of time (such as the alto saxophone). And the voices. I’m personally not a fan of these choral-style voices, mainly because I arrange a lot of jazz and pop acapella material and these voices make it hard to hear the harmonies correctly and overall don’t work well with the music. Other than that, keep it up. Love the app.
