Can't understand the bad reviews. It's great
Yes it's a bit hard to navigate at first but the depth of this is incredible.
Forget GarageBand this is 10x better.
Written amazing songs with it and it's constantly updated.
The level of editing is brilliant down to each note, length and volume.
You can make your own chords to play as pads and the amount of instruments is constantly getting added to plus you can import new ones from websites. The instruments also sound like real instruments not poor samples.
They've added audio with great FX so you can use it to add multi audio tracks and harmonies galore.
I'm a real recording musician so trust me when I say once you use this regularly you'll love it.
There are far better apps
As much as I'd like to say that this app is decent, it is far too difficult and strenuous to work with. The audio systems and how to work with audio is not only tiring due to how long it takes to actually position it right but you have to repeat it for each and every single piece unlike the instruments. Implementing instruments is even worse!!! The app in itself is too complicated to work, doesn't function properly as far as I'm concerned and was a waste of money in my opinion!
Do NOT get this app!
I got this app because I wanted to play around in some type of DAW whilst my computer was being repaired, and I was very impressed with this app. Although the piano roll is a bit of a bugger to use, the rest of the app is very good. I recommend it for anyone bored or wanting to play around with music.
