Ratings and Reviews
Excellent app, but...
Love this one as well as the other two. Please update as you have with 2 and 3 as it crashes and my songs are stuck in the app. Keep on making stellar sounds!
Update: months ago there was an update. But soon after, all three Sessions apps crashed before I could even load them. Help please. I would love to access my tunes...
Fixed! The problem with 2 and 3 was that iPad was on zoom in display and I couldn’t see the whole dashboard. Thanks!
Great Jazz feel.
I d like a stop button, with fade out. And several cue points, would be very nice.
Thank you. Heaven apps.
Fantastic songwriting inspiration!
I think I have all the SessionBand apps, and I love them. As a songwriter, I find that these apps and the many included demo songs are a fantastic inspiration for new songs. I've probably got 20 fragments of in-work songs (mostly needing lyrics which is not this app's fault!). I've finished 2 or 3 and it gives me a fresh approach compared to writing on guitar, keys, etc. Something like Band-in-a-Box with RealTracks which I use on PC but better for writing on long airplane flights.
Aside from that, the musical and technical quality of the recorded sample are quite good, and the UI and workflow are quite well thought out. Jazz Vol. 2 is better than Vol. 1 for me as i like the variety of styles. My only complaint is that I wish there were an easy way to export each individual instrument for AudioCopy to GarageBand. Maybe there is but I haven't figured it out so I have to solo each track, monitor the automation on the mixer screen, save, export, repeat. Not the worst thing but feels kludgey. This one also supports Audiobus but I prefer copy paste unless I'm overdubbing a part, as when using a synth app to play a part in GB.
GREAT JOB! Make more!
