Ratings and Reviews
Really surprised by the sound quality
I was really wiped out over the sound quality. Wasn't expecting that. Very good.
Extremely cool app.
A lot easier to try and use GarageBand to get a jam track going. This is no diss to GB by any means. This is easier to use in my opinion. All the instruments can be muted or adjusted, and the same for GB, but man more options included here for rhythm guitar alone.
Change key by semitone. Adjust speed. Change drum fill or the better part of the track. Loop.
All needed tools. You can record your finished track. After you have produced it and then export to several other apps, including GB.
Watch your bpm after you import to GB. Once you sync it up there, it'll play like you had originally wanted here in SessionBand. Haven't figured out how to export single tracks to GB yet, but will get it going.
I have two ticks that certainly didn't warrant a star removed.
No plain Jane Major chords. Not all Blues has just, altered Dominates. And no Diminished chords. m7b5 yep, no problem, but no Diminished.
Other than those two, this is a home run music making app for the price of a couple cocktails.
I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Good app for making jam tracks ...
I didn't have any problems learning how to use the app. If anything, my mistake was thinking it was harder to use than it is. Works great. I play blues so, unless I am missing something, it would be better if I could substitute a keyboard for the rhythm guitar in Texas Blues Crunch, etc. I like some rhythm in the backing. Just would like a little more flexibility about what kind of rhythm. Not complaining though. After trying all kinds of looping programs, this is the one that I use to practice to. Great job guys. Looking forward to more functions and sophistication. I, for one, would not hesitate to pay a bit more for an upscale version. Thanks.
I can not believe it took me this long to stumble on this app and that there are so few favorable reviews. Just amazing for building fantastic backing tracks to play with. And the interface is incredible. What a bargain too. I’ve tried many many other backing track solutions and this is clearly the best.
