Loving the app, but quick bug thing that’s killing me

So this app is insanely helpful! It allows me to make music with sf2s and such but for some reason, when using GarageBand, if you try loading any other sound, you get a really weird stutter/cutoff thing where the not won’t play correctly. It makes it really hard to use more than one track from this, because you can only have 1 loaded at a time to sound good, so I have to make 3 separate songs for 3 tracks, and put them together on my computer in audacity. This makes it painful to use please fix

Developer Response ,

Hello, Thank you and our apologies! This has been fixed in 6.1, redownload World Piano and try again!

IAP’s don’t work!

This synth is unique and has potential. The free sounds are great but after trying to make an IAP for more sounds I was surprised to find that they produced no sound and using restore purchases did not work. I will change my rating once they get this figured out as I really want to like this one of a kind synthesizer!
Update: The developer has fixed everything that I complained about and I can now give this app a full 5 stars in fact I would give it 10 if I could the app is that good. All I can say is what are you waiting for download it and buy the IAP’s you won’t regret it!!!!

Developer Response ,

Please update to the latest version to confirm that the IAP's work - we have added all packs as IAP's now!

Amazing

WOW. I saw the app featured in use by musician Ara Topouzian. This is a really accessible system to learn and play a really broad range of microtonal scales. The rhythms and voices built in sound really fantastic. Seeing these scales visualized on a keyboard with the downtuned notes immediately helps understand them.

A couple of things I’d really love: a quick switch to turn on/off the rhythm and drones all at once. And (this may be more iOS than the app) a way to avoid the iOS home bar that makes you swipe out of the apps (easy to accidentally close the app when you’re using the keyboard).

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the kind review!
