Customer Reviews

Oh come on...

I reviewed my original praise of this app and replaced with one criticising the lack of updates apart from the never ending slew of extremely overpriced soundpacks - reducing it from 5 stars to 2...

Sorry but that’s me had enough now too and will be joining the anti-novation web forum - I assume u know about it. I didn’t like until my critical review got silenced / blocked / removed.
Now I’m a member of it and it’s amazing how EVERYONE believes the problems mentioned by a few are mirrored by every other user of this app on the site.


The Best By Far v2

These apps are the best out there by far, incredible sounds and integration with all other apps. I'm using on iPad Pro into Logic Pro X and I just can't believe what I'm hearing. 100% 🎸☠️😎🎤

So far Blocs Wave is the coolest best Real-time Loop based integration I’ve ever saw...Inspiration is flowing every time I use.

Audiobus 3 I recon is a must for app integration also, I have numerous synth and keyboard apps. rock on Blocs Wave
