A nice concept, but has volume issues. I have ramped up the Top, Mid, Bass and the volume, all to full, and the volume level is still ridiculously low! Linked it to a bluetooth speaker, even had to turn that up to full to get any reasonable level out of the app.
Also, the light display is tempremental. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. If these issues were fixed, I'd be a lot happier.

A nice 'toy' but misses a lot of functionality

It's cool to play around with though it seems to just be a 'tap to make a noise' app. The real kaoss pad manipulates the sound as you drag your finger along the separate axis to vary the pitch, note, attack, wah, octave and so on. It's hard to actually play madness as you can't change the note.

Good if you want to play around though!

Pretty cool

Quite good for 2 quid but it could definitely do with a bit more. Looking forward to the addition of the unsustainable and undisclosed desires synths. I would suggest adding an arpeggiator like the one used in bliss, that would be awesome.
