Too much too soon

I just bought this app. I was a big fan and daily user of NanoStudio which I can now say, “back in the day”. Sadly, NanoStudio was rubbed out by apples merciless grindstone of progress and the app makers dropped the ball and NS2 which was to fallow never was released. So my quest began to find a replacement. I’m not fully confident in saying much about this choice other than there is a lot here and the workflow is going to take a bit to get my head around. I also don’t see a stand alone synth, which would be nice. I see that I can sample whatever synth I want and then alter that using t(e many included filters and FX. Oh yeah, the other reason and probably even more important to me was to find an app from which I can trigger Drums samples using velocity over note triggering. I just made that term up, seems to make sense. Example, I would like to trigger a snare on note D1. D1 would also contain velocity information, which it does, 16 levels I think, of velocity. I would then have the choice to place a different sampled articulation of that same snare on any of those levels and the velocity with which I hit my snare would trigger the corresponding articulated sample. I heard this app has this going on as well. I’ll get back and review it once I have a clue. So far, looks impressive, sounds great!

Big Shove


I’ve been waiting to make beats portable with PC quality on my IPad for a while. I’ve always been an FL Studio user on my PC, the IOS app is garbage lol. I have been using Beatmaker since Beatmaker 1, purchased Beatmaker 2, and now have Beatmaker 3, which is why I stopped using ,y PC btw. I was even able to, although not implemented yet, transfer my Beatmaker 2 files into Beatmaker 3 believe it or not!!! All this program needs is to be able to export the songs as .wav, .mp3 and files straight to my flashdrive, ie iXpand, or through the camera connection kit directly to a 3.0 USB Flashdrive without having to use iCloud or a PC, etc. Maybe you can make an app to do this or write it into Beatmaker 3 itself, then no producer on an idevice in his right mind would need any other program aside from this one to make a beat, put it on a drive, and put it in the car or take it to the studio for further developement. The Intua team gets no complaints from me, just a minor request lol😁, and thanks for the best beatmaker since the MPC 2000XL, in my opinion!!!


Just Wow

I bought the iPad as a means to provide sample fodder for my Octatrack. I bought this app because of videos by Henny Tha Bizness, who’s done an impressive job showcasing this great program. I now find myself constantly on BM3 on the go, than at home on my hardware. Great program all around. Not sure if it’s because I’m on an iPad Air 2, but would love to see better RAM optimization as I’m forced to usually resemble AUV3 tracks or after a good 4 tracks of certain AUV3 plugins and my RAM is maxing out. I’m always having to up the samples to 1024 samples on some tracks. Hoping this can be addressed and that it isn’t solely hardware issue, either than that, fantastic work on this software. So clean, well designed, and fun all around for creativity, btw love the added scale and chord modes, blows Chordion and other paid apps out the water.
