Customer Reviews

One of the best... my personal favourite.

As far as 'm u s i c - r e l a t e d' Apps go, エ pretty much have them all... be them 'mini-studios' like this or 'digi-synths'... if it's half decent, I've got it. Everyone has there favourite. I know this isn't the most recently released studio app, but it's the one I've used the most. Don't get me wrong, there isn't one single App on iPad that will fully compare to a decent PC digital studio, but when you want to just mess about with some ideas or are just feeling creative then this App will NOT let you down. It's a c o o l App and defo' gets my seal-of-approval.

The best MPC-like tool on iOS

While I've toyed with several iOS music apps none really did what I wanted, which is I suppose, a sampling drum machine and a bit more... Something a bit like an Akai MPC on iOS. That's why, for me, Beatmaker beats things like Nanostudio. You do need to read some tutorials before diving in ... A few things aren't obvious even if you are a music software veteran but, while not immediately intuitive, once you've learned a few keys things it's great to work with. If you are using it on iPhone you may be tempted to buy an iPad as clearly the bigger screen would benefit the app.

Cannot download.

I purchased yesterday and have tried several times to download, but so far have been unsuccessful. May be a problem with Apple Store. The one star is only because I cannot try it out to rate it.
