What is wrong here? The sound quality used to be incredible and now it’s horrible. All sounds are vibrating and really off tune. I can’t even use them now. I was going to submit songs using these apps and everything is way off. I especially enjoy the original session band but that is awful. All of the apps are off. Session band were my faves and now I can’t use them. I tapped five stars hoping you would read this review and respond to me. Thank you. Please update so I can use my favorite apps again.

Great products enjoying this so much

Not bad but,,

Purchased Soul jazz funk 1 and 2 but they are completely separate and do not interact with each other. Version 1 is guitar and version 2 is sax. Would have been great together.
The chord vocabulary could be better. If you’re looking to cover some jazz standards you will find you are some chords short. A regular B flat for example. Every other kind of B flat but not that one. There are others missing also so a bit dissatisfied. There’s also a further $8.99 in app purchase to expand the loops which for an app that is already $8.99 ,,meh. So not great.
