SunVox is amazing!!
Yes this app won’t cost you much money, it’s free on Mac, PC, Linux and even Raspberry Pi if you really want to try before buying. I was trying to make a stand alone box running it on Raspberry Pi but then I realized it works so much better on my Phone and this was 3 years ago. It can do so much and continues to get developed to be even better year after year. Some people don’t care for Trackers well I don’t either and I don’t use it often. I has infinite possibilities for sound creation. Works flawlessly on everything from my old 2011 iPad 2 running the latest SunVox version to my new 2017 iPad Pro.
I’m just resending my same review as before because the iOS review system is stupid!
Fantastical App. Best music creating app on the store
This is the best creating app on the store. I look forward to new features and updates. One problem I have though. Mid editing, if I receive a call, the app freezes when I end the call. Then I have to restart it. Sometimes it will let me save. Other times not. But all of those times it happens, I cannot anything but access the menu. It won’t even let me move the cursor in the pattern editor. Hope this gets fixed, because it is really frustrating to lose really good data.
It’s a GUI thing...
You’ll either get along with the UI of this app or you won’t.
I’ve watched videos of people doing very cool things with this app, but I’m not a programmer and I don’t think like one, so this app is tough for me to understand... I did manage to make a simple 8 bar 3 track groove, but it took about an hour. 😂 Not the apps fault at all. It’s the sequencer and timeline that I struggle with. I’m sure that if I hunkered down and spent a few months with this app, I could have a good understanding of how it works, but there are many other apps that do not require such work for me. I’ll probably keep hitting this app over time until I get it, cause I do like a good puzzle. peace
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
