Ratings and Reviews
This is almost the coolest thing on the planet. The idea of being able to control a project from your phone is incredible. Some of the buttons and faders don't really do what they're supposed to. The synchronization is WAY off. When I hit Mute on the Mix panel on one of the faders, it activated a kick drum. On another fader, it starts/stops the track. And on another, it rewinds the track to the beginning. Lol. Needless to say, if Image-Line can work on syncing the project with your phone better and simplifying the functions, I think this will be a hit. Til then, I'll be starting and stopping my projects from the back of the studio like a BOSS. 😎
Not a bad start
Honestly, I only use it for play/pause so I can sit back from my laptop and listen to my tracks. To use it for any of the mixing functions, the touch screen isn't accurate enough to practically use the mix page. I haven't tried making the custom layouts, but the app needs to reflect what is happening on the screen. Even if the mixer section had more than 10 slots (maybe scroll left/right to find more) I might use it more. Better yet: the screen should show one plugin at a time so I can modify parameters on the touch screen! I applaud the easy setup process. Hopefully this app will expand!
So much potential, but never updated
Hasn’t been updated since FL 12. Crashes frequently. Loses saved presets. Crashes. Clunky UI interface and scaling. Not going to hold my breath for an update - I know this isn’t a focus for image line, just a forgotten app.
But if they or anybody else would be able to craft something similar:
I would love to see this updated for FL 20. There is so much potential here. Add a line editor window. FL is built on line editors. Add LFO tools. Fix the clunky UI and shaping. Fix the crashing. This app is borderline perfect, but it falls short because of these heavy flaws.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
