Great app

I really love this app. It’s incredible to have the opportunity to interact with THE Ray Chen! I learn & it’s motivating. I love the challenges. Everyone is always encouraging & positive.

The only suggestion is making a rule for during open studios for people not to engage in their own personal side-bar conversations in chat. When Ray Chen has open studios, the same group of people use his open studio as their personal group chatroom & it really takes away from the experience. I have to sift through a bunch of unrelated personal messages to get to people’s comments & questions about Ray’s playing. It makes it harder to engage with Ray & makes it more difficult to get a chance for him to see a new person’s comment or question. & frankly I don’t want to read about people’s personal lives when having the chance to interact with Ray Chen. (I’m sure Ray doesn’t care to read about it either, mid-practice, when he’s sharing his time with us.) Maybe limit the amount of times someone can send a message in a period of time (or open a chat feature on the app where people can talk in private). Something!

Thank you! Again, I love the app.

A few issues, but overall great

Pros: Fun to use, cool to hear others practicing and cool to interact with groups. I also like how user friendly it is.

Cons: When I’m practicing, I cannot use my metronome (also on my iPad) because the sound cuts out, and I’m afraid to try using drones in case I blow people’s eardrums out. I also wish that more instruments were already on the app, and that we didn’t have to vote to add them. I play cello, which is pretty common, and I wish my Tonic profile accurately reflected that. I wish there were also a wider range of customisations for my avatar— it looks nothing like me, which isn’t a dealbreaker, but from the glasses colour to the body type, it’s not me. It would also be nice if I could use Tonic upside down/in landscape mode for when my iPad is charging.

One BIG thing— please make it so that I can be in a studio without it counting towards my practice time. Sometimes I’m just messing around and I don’t want it to skew my stats.

I know the cons list looks huge, but overall I highly recommend this app. It’s fun and I know I’ll use it in the future. The pros are definitely work than the cons.

Amazing way to practice

This app is the best way to practice. It keeps me motivated and consistent with my practicing. It has improved so much. The idea is brilliant and the execution of the idea has been an amazing experience! I’ve had such a great experience using this app. I think every music student should use it! Not only does it help with practicing but the community within the app is something that is so precious to me. Being able to chat with and listen to other users practice is an amazing experience. I was one of the early users and it changed a lot but it’s been a really great experience! I’m not really one to write reviews but I want the creators/developers to know what a great job they’ve been doing! I love Tonic!
