Freezes when headphone jack is used
Please update and fix the issue on 6+ when the headphone jack is used it freezes up the app!!! Having a degree in Audio production I can tell you this is completely unacceptable!!!! I want to run it through my Boss gt-100 or the aux input on my Amp and jam along but cannot. I would like a refund if a fix is not possible. Is a irig style interface the only way this software works?!? That's ridiculous. Some of us have multiple ways to utilize software like this and I can't even use the software the way I want!! Please fix!!
My favorite SessionBand app
I've been looking for something like this, and nothing else really does what this, and all the SessionBand apps, do. Mapping out the chords can be a bit fiddly, but it does get the job done. Great for jamming, writing, and even recording.
Can I give this six stars?
This app, and the others in the SessionBand family, are an invaluable tool for songwriters. Right from version 1.0, this app has delivered time and time again.
The revamped app suite, with its new features (I'm loving the improved tempo shift especially!) blows even its illustrious predecessors out of the water. Truly one of the best music creation tools available for iOS today, and I expect it will be so for a long time to come.
Excellent, excellent work, and well worth the price.
