GET YOUR SONG MAKING JUICES FLOWING...!!
They sound so beautiful! Imagine you trying to record all these amazing instruments in your studio or even paying for musicians to record for you in a real studio? Well, this is where Session Band truly shines. It is in the effort, quality and inexpensive alternative to doing the above. You can literally record a track and get inspired to make a whole song out of it. Or you can use Audio bus, and chop it up into your DAW, like Cubasis or Auria and loop it, and do other amazing things with the audio. Your imagination is really the limit. I contacted the developer and they are working on fixing the timing issue when exporting and other fixes. I appreciate their support for this apps and although it is audio, and the file size might be bigger than we wish, the sound is superb! People need to understand that the when you change the speed of audio no matter how good the shifting is, the quality will degrade. So, having that in mind, I don't complain about the sound changing when changing the speed of the song. But if you use it as is, and build your song at the actual speed stated, then you're good to go. Perhaps in the future, the iPad will allow for better time stretching technology but for now, this is what we have and personally, I'm really grateful for the ability to take these amazing recording Musicians with me in my personal bag and record with them at any time, any place and let all my songs come to life playing along with amazing musicians. The very best!
Thank you for the continued support to these apps and looking forward to what is coming!
It's better than nothing
It's an ok app. There's a bit of a learning curve to the programing feature that isn't all that intuitive. If I could find something more straight forward I would use that instead. But I use the preset patterns for practicing scales and such, for that it works well.
A very useful app
I find a use for all the SessionBand apps I have, and this one is no exception. It's great for sketching out arrangements and practicing your instrument. My only complaint is that the piano parts are VERY basic. I could play better country piano parts, and I don't really play piano. I still like the app, though.
