All I can say is...WOW!

After already buying four other Session Band apps, I must say that this one is over the top! Having all the Drum fills to choose from is just great! The guitar riffs and backing chords sound awesome too! I wish the original app would come online with Audio Bus, but also realize this company is just experiencing growing pains. If the Blues app is this good, I am sure I will be blown away! I must say that the amp sounds you selected for this app is just great. One thing I would suggest. Can we get some kind of count in before the song begins? I just got this today and am sure the more I use this, the closer to five stars it will get!thanks for all your hard work and creative minds. Also, I am a bassist myself and have been on that eternal quest for the absolute perfect bass sound. I did notice that in some tracks, the bass seemed a bit muddy. Try using an Ernie Ball Sting Ray Five String, which I think is just a great bass. Also, for a Growl type, tight and balanced sound, I love the Gibson "Grabber" and "Ripper"! These basses really lay it down! Thanks for listening. God Bless you all,...Shalom. Benjamin, alias "Nebben"

Your band. Your song. This is a really wonderful app, so much fun to use. The recordings are excellent, and real. Kind of rare these days to hear real music played by real musicians. Easy to use, powerful and quick.

I’ve been looking for this for years

So amazing. I really wanted to have some nice, easy to program drums for jamming with. That eventually led me here. Let me say that even if all you use this for is to get some drums (you can solo the drum track), it’s awesome. But this app lets you throw together a chord progression and immediately play! bass, drums, rhythm, lead all there. Plus, say you want to practice your leads. just mute it the lead channel. Same with any of the other instruments (and i play all of them). You can easily change key and style of the whole piece in seconds. You can change the quality of the chords or the drum beat just as easily. play trumpet? you can display the chord chart in Bb without affecting what the backing band plays. Want to get better at styles? you can solo one the instruments and try to mimic what they do. It’s freaking awesome. I bought rock, blues, and all the Jazz volumes. If I had see the complete bundle I would have bought that. It’s so worth it.
