Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic Idea ..but...there seems to be a slight lag between the Bass Sound and the Drums that are linked.(I own 4 of your Drum Apps, and they all lag a little behind.) I didn’t notice this at first. Other than that, yes it does Crash some and Freaks Out when using AUM sometimes. Works great otherwise. But, once you notice the Lag you can’t forget that it’s there. Please Fix This and you will have yourself something really Groundbreaking.
I’ve picked up a few of the drum apps as well and this integrates so nicely with those. These apps make practicing and coming up with new ideas so much fun.
I would still like to be able to preview the notes in the line editor to make it a little easier to program grooves. Overall a great app and well worth the cost.

Developer Response ,
You can skip the inter-app / audiobus issue simply opening iBassist as stand-alone before loading in AUM / audiobus, etc... We are working on a update to fix it.
