Ratings and Reviews
Great Features but lacking ACP and AudioBus
This is really fun to use, well thought out, with great tutorials and user guide. Allows novice musicians to get a handle on beat making and rhythm with this easy to use looper. I love how easy it is to re-record a mistake … and add up to 3 instruments per "track" as a way of overdubbing without losing your first recording(s). Actually there are many things I love about this app and just a couple things I don't like … 1. No AudioBus and 2. No Audio/Copy/Paste. This would be so much more useful if the mixdown could be copied instead of going into iTunes File Sharing … very few want to have to connect to their computer to retrieve a recording to use in their iOS daw. A mobile app should stay mobile. Add ACP or AudioBus and I'll add the missing star :)
Legit music app
This app has proven to be a real winner. Once you take some time, utilize the in-app help options, and play around a bit, you'll see that this app has some serious depth.
Lots of options for tweaking sounds, a multitude of instruments to use, and a very cool interface. The co-op feature looks great, however I have not used it yet.
Give this one a serious look.
more than you might think!
This might seem like a party app.... It can be... Yet, CoTracks has much more to offer for those interested. It's really a pro grade app...
It can be used for collaboration with up to 4 other people, or as a 1 person workstation. A lot of good sounds included...
Needs ability to edit recorded midi... Would like to see Virtual Midi support. Developer says MIDI implementation is in the works!
Very useful as a sketchpad for musical ideas, and can be used for full blown sequencing...
