Exquisite App! Love it ...
Great app for anyone who writes their own music or especially for people like myself who don't know music theory or play an instrument. I am a songwriter and producer and the way I get my ideas out is to hire musicians and hum the idea out or play a basic melody on a keyboard for them to understand where I want to go with the song. This Amazing app lets you arrange & write out that the idea you have in your head without knowing the correct chords or key to the song. All I had to do is pick the key I want the song to be in,scroll thru different chords and arrange them and that idea I had in my head came to LIFE. I pray you guys will come out with a new update which offers more chords to choose from and have an option to add drum loops to your song and maybe some different instruments like strings and either guitar or piano as well. Until then I will wait patiently for more Blessings to come my way.
Promising (but not how you think)
I like the app. It has its limitations, true, but overall a fun app to play with and a handy jam-along/improv/practice tool. HOWEVER:
For all of you hoping for Audiobus support- good luck. I'd love to see it as well, but way back when I first got the app (before the genre specific ones), I emailed the dev, asking if they would/could make a universal version. You see, I bought the entire IAP bundle for my iPad and didn't want to have to buy it again for my iPhone. The answer I received indicated that there was a universal app in the works. It failed to mention that the universal app would be an entirely different app altogether. I still don't have the IAP's on my phone, which is irritating, because the two apps (iPad and iPhone) are identical in content. If you want to work on the same project on both devices and are using an IAP, be prepared to pay for the same thing twice. Given that experience and the fact that they have the newer, AB compatible versions, I'd be surprised (but happy) to see that AB support arrive for this particular incarnation, regardless of the devs promises.
Other than that, I do enjoy throwing a progression together and just noodling over it with guitar or synth.
Best tool for great chord progression
Actually, I kind of prefer this version of SessionBand over the other versions. I like the fact that I can lay down one chord progression and then try it in a variety of styles quickly. No there is not Audiobus support, but it is not too hard to export a session to a track and then import into some other app.
My biggest wish for all of these apps is a more usable way to edit chord progressions. But it is certainly good enough to use.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
