Customer Reviews

I'm impressed!

I think I was looking up emulators, perhaps not even Spectrum ones, can't remember. This came up anyway and it just so happened that on one of my to-do lists was to get some samples of classic home computers loading. This discovery is far superior to that as now I can control exactly how I want it to sound! More than just a gimmick if you either want it for game design (me) or write music with these sounds (yes, really, check out Richard D James by Aphex Twin) then it's better than messing with limited options in some sample collection.

Great app!

Me and my friend had a great time playing on this app, I can see why it is the best iPad app ever! Great fun for a Saturday afternoon eating sweets on the sofa.

Buuuuuuuuu-zit, buuuuu-zoooo

Brings back my childhood!
